WWE began a long series of budget cuts last week, releasing dozens of superstars and multiple producers, writers and on-air personalities. Some of the most surprising cuts consisted of Rusev and former Tag Team Champions Luke Gallows (now going back as Doc Gallows) and Karl Anderson. Those two were aligned with A.J. Styles, one of the premier main event stars on the Raw roster. Not only that, but Gallows and Anderson were also one of the few standout and popular duos in a fairly lackluster tag team division. The two signed lucrative long-term deals last summer. Gallows and Anderson also had plenty of success outside of WWE, so the two-time Raw Tag Team Champions and 2019 Tag Team World Cup winners shouldn't be out of work for long. On his Twitter page, Gallows created some buzz when he shared a photo of his days in Impact Wrestling, leading some to wonder if this will be his next stop.
Gallows first joined TNA/Impact in 2011, less than a year after he was released from his WWE contract. Competing as D.O.C., he was part of the Aces & Eights stable which includes Mr. Anderson, Devon (D-Von Dudley) and Bully Ray.
