GOOD BROTHERS HAVE AN INTERESTING CLAUSE IN THEIR NEW WWE CONTRACT
The Good Brothers (Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson) haven’t been used on WWE programming as of late, mainly because AJ Styles is injured.
In WWE, wrestlers have to show up to RAW/SmackDown/PPVs even when they are not booked to appear, but Gallows & Anderson don’t have to do that.

On ‘The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy’ podcast, Sean Ross Sapp said the following about Good Brothers’ WWE contract:
“People were asking why The Good Brothers were not at the (Royal) Rumble or at RAW.
In their new deals, they said, ‘if you’re not going to use us, we don’t want to be there. Just don’t send us there. (With) all due respect we will do our jobs, but we don’t want to be there for not being used,’ and WWE said ‘okay.’”
The Good Brothers Big Money WWE Deal
The Good Brothers recently returned to WWE to help old buddy AJ Styles get the jump on another (former?) buddy of theirs, Finn Balor, and his cronies from The Judgement Day. The popular tag team duo had been working with NJPW until they turned up on Monday Night RAW this past week, and they will reportedly continue working with the company from the Far East until they finish their commitments.
Fightful Select has now reported that The OC had been working without contracts for NJPW and are slated to perform until January’s Wrestle Kingdom 17. NJPW was also aware that Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson were returning to WWE.
Apparently, The Good Brothers were only under a verbal commitment in Japan. The two have now officially signed with WWE for what is being quoted as a “big money deal.” This is despite Anderson and Gallows getting their fingers burnt with WWE in 2019 after re-signing with the company instead of joining with AEW and then getting released a few months later.
The OC has been announced for next week’s Raw by WWE, where they will take on the Alpha Academy in their return match.
How good a deal is this for The Good Brothers?
