Gallows and Anderson just signed those big-$$$ extensions.

Are these guys just being let go or are they being bought out of their deals?

Why would they cut The Club? Didn't they resign last year, they use them lots.

Why pay them out when they can just end the agreement?

And didn't I see in a WrestleTalk video a day or so ago that Drake Maverick was just announced as part of this new tournament to crown a new interim cruiserweight champ?

I mean, we all know it's not unlike WWE to advertise things they aren't gonna follow up on (*cough, cough, Roman / Goldberg, cough*) or change their mind at the last-minute about something (*cough, Vince re-writing almost every show, cough*).

But still...

Do Gallows and Anderson go to AEW or NJPW?

WWE is fucked especially not having revenue come in from live shows and being a creditor to the XFL.

Asking because I don't know how WWE contracts are setup.

i.e. - are contracts written such that WWE can terminate their agreement with you without warning nor fulfilling their end of the contract

It looks like WWE is adding names to the press release in my first tweet as they’re able to get people on the phone

If AEW was smart it would not just start signing WWE rejects.

 

It’s already showcasing C-level Matt Hardy and Luke Harper in prominent positions. 
 

If they bring in Eric Rowan and Elias and promote them as better than homegrown talent it will start to become TNA. 

 

 


I doubt AEW is signing anyone right now - esp since they've got all their shows through Double or Nothing taped already, and there's still speculation if DON will even happen.

If they were gonna go signing anyone, they'd have signed the Revival already.
