Former Raw Tag Team Champions Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson appear to be the latest names to be dissatisfied with their television status. Anderson and Gallows have refused to renew a five-year extension and are not looking to commit to those terms for a new deal. As a result, PWInsider has confirmed that the team has been pulled from WWE Live events moving forward.
After having multiple meetings with WWE, Anderson and Gallows reportedly turned down “multi-million-dollar deals” and are expected to leave the company after their contracts expire.
Debuting in the WWE in 2016, Anderson and Gallows won the Raw Tag Team Championships from Sheamus and Cesaro on the 2017 Royal Rumble kickoff show. They retained the titles until WrestleMania, where they lost the titles to the returning team of Matt and Jeff Hardy in a ladder match that also included Enzo Amore & Big Cass, and Sheamus & Cesaro.
During the 2018 Superstar Shake-up, Anderson and Gallows moved to the WWE SmackDown Live brand. Since then, the team has not been able to regain any championships, although they had opportunities against Luke Harper & Erick Rowan at Money in the Bank and the following episode of SmackDown Live.
The Club’s last match was on March 12 at a WWE live event, defeating the SAnitY pairing of Alexander Wolfe and Killian Dain. They have not competed on television since losing to Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura on the February 5 edition of SmackDown Live.
Prior to signing with WWE, Anderson and Gallows were one of the most popular teams competing in New Japan Pro Wrestling. The team were able to win the titles on three separate occasions, lastly defeating The Kingdom duo of Matt Taven and Michael Bennett at the Dominion 7.5 event in Osaka, Japan. Anderson and Gallows were also members of Bullet Club while competing in NJPW, with Anderson being one of the founding members of the group in 2013.
