The Good Brothers, Luke/Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson are believed to be WWE-bound, multiple sources within the company have told    The belief among several in the company that the former WWE, IWGP and Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions will be returning to the Raw brand as soon as this month, which likely means a return to their old alliance with AJ Styles.

Gallows, Anderson and Styles were all spotted together yesterday in Washington, DC, likely to film something for WWE.   Styles has been at odds with The Judgement Day in recent weeks, so the idea of Gallows and Anderson backing him up, especially given their history, certainly makes sense.

Gallows and Anderson finished up with Impact this past August, losing to The Motor City Machine Guns at a TV taping in Dallas, Texas. Their deals actually expired in July but they agreed to make some additional dates. Their plan upon leaving Impact was to focus on New Japan Pro Wrestling at least through Wrestle Kingdom as there had been at least early plans internally for Anderson to have a high profile singles bout on that annual January Tokyo Dome event. 

As reported over the summer for Elite subscribers, there had been previous overtures from WWE during the Vince McMahon regime towards the team as they came closer to the end of their Impact deals. WWE sources indicated at the time that talks fizzled when Gallows and Anderson made it clear they weren't interested in returning for anything less than a high financial premium.

The duo had already been burnt once by the company as in 2019, when they had an offer to go to AEW as that promotion launched, they instead signed new five-year WWE deals. While the duo made a commitment to WWE when they signed in 2019, they were among those unceremoniously released right after Wrestlemania 37, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the sides were far apart on money during their most recent conversations, talks dissipated at the time without a deal being reached. 

Obviously, there's an entirely new world when it comes to WWE management, now, which recently opened the discussions back up. 

Gallows and Anderson, as members of Bullet Club, worked most recently for New Japan in London, England as part of The Royal Quest II weekend.    Anderson is advertised for the 11/5 New Japan Pro Wrestling event in Osaka, Japan, defending the NEVER Openweight Championship against Hikuleo.

The duo worked for WWE from 2016-2020, jumping from New Japan to WWE alongside AJ Styles.  Gallows has had several previous WWE runs beyond teaming with Anderson as members of The Club, working under a number of personas ranging from Festus, an impersonator Kane and as a member of CM Punk's Straightedge Society.  Anderson had a long run with New Japan Pro Wrestling, both in singles competition and as a member of Bad Intentions before he and Gallows connected as a team inside and outside the ring.
