Luke Gallows recently appeared on WrestleTalk in The D to talk with Martez Ale and Jordan Garber about a wide range of topics.
During the interview, he discussed the decision that he and Karl Anderson made to join Impact Wrestling.
Of course, this move came a few months after the tag team had been let go by in April due to budget cuts related to the financial impact of the coronavirus.
Not only have Anderson and Gallows signed a multi-year deal with the promotion, but they plan to return to NJPW once they’re allowed to Japan.
“Karl and I both have a long history with Scott D’Amore. Scott helped me when I was leaving TNA years ago to go to New Japan, Scott put me into contact with those people. Putting together a very nice deal for me at the time. He’s always been a business associate but also a good friend. They put together a very nice offer that had an unlimited schedule. But the most attractive thing about it was the people at IMPACT were fully on board with co-promoting our brand. We want to promote their brand and they wanted to promote ours so they promoted the “Talk n Shop Podcast”.
They are helping us promote our “Talk n Shop” PPV, our “Talk n Shop” Beer that we are coming up with. With all of this stuff we have in the works, it’s really nice to be on board with somebody that wants to help you with your outside projects.Because with the motto at WWE, there is not a lot of room for that type of promotion and especially to do it on their television show. That was a really big deal for me. At the end of the day, me and Karl just felt like it was the right place to go.”
