While speaking to Chris Van Vliet, IMPACT Wrestling Star Luke Gallows discussed how AJ Styles’ booking is handled by WWE officials.

Below is what he said:

“He’s on a different level than us. He reached a different top guy WWE level. He’s working with a different kind of money than we are working with and working with a different kind of creative than what we were working with. I don’t know how close he got to leaving.

They always treated AJ Styles properly. He’s a few years older than us. In confidence, he told us what his offer was and it was amazing. No matter how good it is outside, that’s going to be real hard to say no to anybody giving you that money. It just is.”

Gallows also revealed if he and Karl Anderson were mad at Styles after their release from WWE.

“I don’t want to put it all on AJ, but AJ was very influential in us staying. That’s not a bad thing. He didn’t know either and I think that’s why he felt so bad about it. We are grown men. It’s nobody else’s responsibility but he was like, I feel so bad. I convinced you guys to stay. I told you everything was going to be all right and then it wasn’t.

But we were never mad at him. We were never mad at him for two seconds. It’s wrestling. It’s entertainment. The wheel keeps on turning. If he would have gone to AEW, we would have gone. We would have been out of there because his contract was up too in January and we could have all gone together.”
