Impact's Good Brothers Confirm New Japan Pro Wrestling Status

After leaving WWE and moving to Impact, Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows revealed on Wrestle Buddies that they have made a deal to return to NJPW.


Since leaving WWE, one of the bigger questions the Good Brothers--Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows-- have received is whether or not they'll be returning to New Japan Pro Wrestling. Between 2013 and 2016, the two were primary members of the Bullet Club faction, alongside the likes of Finn Balor, Adam Cole, and the Young Bucks. However, the duo, who are now signed with Impact Wrestling, have yet to indicate any plans for return.

That is, until now. Speaking to GameSpot's Wrestle Buddies podcast the Good Brothers confirm that they will be returning to New Japan. In fact, there's already a deal between the two sides to make it happen. "For sure. There's a deal in place," Anderson said. Gallows added, "Yeah, we're going."

As for when that could happen, the Good Brothers were a bit more coy. "When the time is right we'll probably do a nice surprise thing somewhere," Anderson teased. It's hard to imagine them not having some interaction with the current version of the Bullet Club, though. After all, four of the group's current members--Bad Luck Fale, Tama Tonga, Yujiro Takahashi, and Chase wens--have been part of the group since the Good Brothers' tenure. Some form of reunion between the longtime stablemates would be very entertaining.

During their time in New Japan, Gallows and Anderson became IWGP World Tag Team Champions on three separate occasions. Together, they also became Raw Tag Team Champions twice. Now, they are members of the Impact Wrestling roster, having recently debuted at the company's Slammiversary pay-per-view.

You can hear Gallows and Anderson speak more about their Impact debut, as well as life after WWE, their favorite Bullet Club memories, and hosting their own pay-per-view on the latest episode of Wrestle Buddies. New episodes are released every Thursday on the podcast platform or app of your choice, including Spotify, Stitcher, and Apple Podcasts.
