• Reason Behind Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson Signing With IMPACT Wrestling Instead Of AEW
As we noted earlier, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson appeared on last night’s episode of Talk N’ Shop podcast and confirmed that they’ve signed with IMPACT Wrestling and will be appearing at their Slammiversary pay-per-view tonight.
During the podcast, they also revealed why they signed with IMPACT Wrestling instead of AEW.
They had been in talks with AEW last year, but didn’t go there after WWE offered them great deals last year. After their release from WWE, they could’ve gone to AEW, but the deals weren’t long enough this time.
Gallows and Anderson said that IMPACT offered them much longer deals than AEW, and they wanted stability, so they signed with IMPACT.
