Anderson and Gallows first met each other when the latter joined NJPW in Osaka, Japan. Luke Gallows would soon join the Bullet Club.

In less than a year of being a team, the duo won their first-ever IWGP tag team titles. They defended these prestigious titles all over the world.

They wrestled and defended their titles in England, Germany, and many parts of the USA. Along with NJPW, they also performed in Ring of Honor.

The year 2016 was ‘too sweet’ for the duo. The good brothers announced themselves in the WWE by attacking the Usos. They conquered the tag team titles twice.

The tag-team unit would also go on to win the tag team world cup in Saudi Arabia.

Unfortunately, their journey ended in 2020 as WWE looked to cut budgets due to the COVID-19.

Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows have now signed with Impact Wrestling. They will officially make their debut on Impact Wrestling’s PPV, Slammiversary.

The good brothers will have a point to prove after their untimely release from the WWE. The duo won the tag titles twice.

However, many fans would argue Anderson and Gallows were never given a chance to show their potential.

They were always kept as sidekicks to one of their former Bullet Club members. First, they were in alliance with Finn Balor.

Later on, they were in alliance with AJ Styles. After forming an alliance with Styles, they were known as the O.C. ( Original Club).

Now in Impact Wrestling, it will be interesting to see how the company will present them. Do they directly enter into the tag team title picture or they slowly build them up?
