This is from 2019 when both of them came extremely close to signing contracts with AEW. However, at that point Triple H intervened and convinced them to sign with WWE instead of AEW.

Unfortunately, both of them were in the list of Superstars that WWE released as a consequence of COVID-19.

Triple H convinced the Good Brothers to sign with WWE

The two of them were in Japan when they teamed up with Triple H for the WWE live event. Once the event came to its end, both of them had a meeting with Triple H in his private dressing room.

This is where the iconic WWE Superstar asked The Good Brothers to re-sign with the company. Upon their revelation that this might be the last contract, Triple H made a convincing statement.

“I look and you and I see your kids, and what if AEW doesn’t last? I promise you WWE will always be here.”

Gallows and Anderson almost signed with AEW

However, prior to signing with WWE for their last contracts before getting released, both wrestlers almost signed with AEW. Even though the two of them admit to it being a bad decision, at that point they were looking at a five-year contract as opposed to a one or two year contract.

“It was clearly just a business decision. We’re looking at a five-year deal as opposed to a two-year deal with maybe a one-year option. When you start calculating that money and where you’re going to be in five years, especially with ‘you’re gonna be here for the full term’ and there’s plans for you after and all that.”

According to Gallows and Anderson, their decision to sign with WWE was a business decision and nothing personal. Even though they have friends in AEW, they made the decision based on what was good for their families.

“A mistake was made, but there was logic behind it. It wasn’t to be harmful or spiteful or back-door anybody. It was truly, honestly a business decision to do what we thought was best for our families.”

The legendary tag team revealed that they had signed with Impact Wrestling earlier today. Expectations are that the duo will make an appearance at the Slammiversary PPV on 18th July.
