Rob: Good Brothers Leaving? What Does It Mean?

Are the Good Brothers leaving WWE?



Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson

Are the Good Brothers leaving WWE? If so, Rob has some thoughts on what it all means.

The word has come down the Gallows and Anderson have turned down a ‘multi million dollar offer’ (That’s a NEWZ!!! phrase – multi million means that over the life of the deal they would make $2 million or more, but it’s supposed to give you the impression that they were going to get paid millions of dollars each year, which is just not true.  Keep that in mind when you read these stories about other wrestlers in the future.)  Speculation now is that they are going to move on from WWE after that.  They are prime ‘misused! buried!’ riff bait because for the past year they were relegated to mostly house shows and occasional TV.  If you ask me a fair assessment of their time in WWE reads as such:

  • Good first year – did six mans with AJ Styles against Roman and The Usos and then John Cena and partners, were in limbo for a few months after the brand split, then won the RAW tag team titles at the 2017 Royal Rumble and held them through WrestleMania 33.
  • Second and third years they fell victim to the numbers game – the Hardys coming back at Mania 33 squeezed them down the tag team roster, then Ambrose and Rollins tagging against the Bar over the titles took that over scene over.  After Mania 34 they moved over to Smackdown, but so did the Bar and they got stuck behind the Bludgeon Brothers experiment with the titles and the Bar/Usos/New Day trio.  There was no reason to put them ahead of any of those teams, unfortunately for them.

The reality of being on a large roster is that if you’re not someone who is a priority just by being there and don’t go hard to make yourself a priority you’re going to get caught in the numbers game.  They would have been better served on RAW this past year, especially given how that tag team division went in 2018, but beyond that who knows.  The numbers game is what it is, and it’s understandable if they don’t want to get lost in the shuffle for three more years.  As far as where they go AEW is the name on everyone’s lips of course, and it could happen, but I wouldn’t call it a lock.  Why?  Because they’re not going to sign everyone who  leaves WWE and they’re not going to sign that many people, period.  If they do go there it will be the ‘Dates for AEW plus you can work for these other places’ deal that most everyone there is getting.  The only other serious option would be back to New Japan but Anderson is on record as not wanting to be too far from his kids now and there may not be a guaranteed opening to rejoin the Bullet Club like we all assume.  Right now nobody really knows New Japan’s MO now that the Elite guys are gone – the Western expansion was largely hanging on those guys, after all.  Which brings me to the next point.

The market isn’t going to be as wide open as people think.  Yes for people like Tye Dellinger who were never going to be more than enhancement talent in WWE it’s worth it to take a shot in another company or on the indies.  But the notion that there are all there opportunities out there for anyone who was making good money and was a midcarder or more in WWE to make similar money along with the other branding opportunities is very much exaggerated.  Given that Cody has already said the AEW roster is going to be 30 to 40 people and most of those spots are filled, and that we don’t really know what anyone else is doing as far as signings go, there’s a lot of fools gold out there.  Now of course staying in WWE is a gamble if you want to work more, be on TV more, etc.  There are only a few regular spots and those get eaten up quickly by people who have established fanbases.  So yes some people are going to leave, maybe even some ‘name’ people, but that doesn’t mean they’re all going to flourish like Cody who had a plan the moment he got out.  WWE has always had a revolving door, even in the Hulkamania era.  Plenty of guys came through for short stints and disappeared so it’s not the big thing people are making it out to be now.

What’s different now is the existence of NXT, and the pipeline of people who can be added in to take anyone’s place who leaves. The Street Profits and Forgotten Sons are right there waiting for a call up in September should Gallows & Anderson leave.  Or it could just mean more time for the teams who are there, like Sanity.  Outside the top tier that’s life in WWE now.  So I don’t begrudge anyone who gets their fill and moves on if opportunities are available but at the same time it’s important to keep things in perspective.  Everyone that leaves isn’t a sign of misuse just like everyone who stays isn’t a sign of good roster management, either.  In a world where the number of viable good wrestlers may be at an all time high, just being good in the ring doesn’t secure you anything.  Some guys and gals just aren’t going to hit like we think they should.  And that goes for other companies, too – funny how we never talk about Ring of Honor and how many people they did nothing with like Keith Lee, Lio Rush, and Cedric Alexander or how they never saw fit to make Cesaro their World Champion but some of you all think Vince should in WWE.  Stuff happens.  In the end what matters the most is that everyone makes as much as they can while they have the chance doing something they like to do, not whether they reach the heights on the roster that we fantasy book for them.

AJ’s Thoughts: Five Potential Returns

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?



With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

With everything going on with WWE, the one thing we have all been hyped about are all of these returns. Dakota Kai made her return at SummerSlam alongside Io and Bayley and now on last SmackDown, Karrion Kross and Scarlett made their returns in a big way against Drew McIntyre and showed the Hourglass to The Bloodline.

With all of that, there have been things in the pipeline saying Triple H’s foot isn’t off the pedal so these are 5 returns from either NXT, main roster or even Try-Outs that I would love to see happen with the new regime.

1. Johnny Gargano

Now this is a name that people have been saying, “Maybe Impact or MLW” but, what about a return? Gargano didn’t renew his contract, most likely to be with his family which is a valid and amazing reason, will never disrespect that. If he were to return, there would be a handful of great reasons. Maybe a singles run with the Intercontinental or United States but with Ciampa getting limelight in the main roster from RAW, what if we get a tag team reunion?

WWE is hurting for Tag Teams and what better than to scare off The Bloodline, loosen  the stranglehold of championships with some Do It Yourself action. DIY reunion could be amazing, especially with newer faces showing up to get championship aspirations like Kross and Ciampa. Want to break the hierarchy? Do It Yourself.

2. James Storm

This one is a little bit weird and off. On one hand, who doesn’t love the Tennessee Cowboy, Jimmy James Storm? On the other, he is 45 and getting some nagging injuries as of late. So why would I say Triple H should bring James Storm back and give him something for the main roster? One of the things I said for Gargano, we have a lack of something and The Usos might need to watch two things in the rearview.

Watch your Money and your Alcohol.

Beer Money showing up in WWE would be amazing in my personal opinion. The Bloodline jump Roode, someone in a hoodie or jacket comes up and jumps them to even the fight and as soon as one Uso remained in the ring, the figure goes down and the old stomping goes off and we hear “BEER…” and Roode looks around and gets hyped up and shouts, “…MONEY!”

3. Big Cass

Since his departure from WWE, he has done something I have said since they split him off from Enzo. Take him through the Kevin Nash School of How To Big Man. ROH and Impact are great examples that he actually cleaned up and worked on what he has to do to be good in the ring. He can work the microphone, he can work the ring so we got a new big boy to take on the WWE once again.

Now I could have said Enzo and Cass to rejoin but, I’m sure the antics of Enzo will get Cass in deep water along with the fact that I already made two tag team predictions, we don’t need another. Cass brings a lot to the table and was kind of unproven in WWE because he was just the big enforcer to the more charismatic Enzo. Give this man about six months in the ring and you have your next MASSIVE problem in the IC or US Championship scene or even more.

4. Bronson Reed

The big man from down under is a former NXT North American Champion. He looked to have a good push going with that championship but he got release. If you wonder where he went… he actually made a pit stop in Impact Wrestling as JONAH with the most fire theme song in recent history I swear… I will link the theme song and Trips… please. Get rights to this theme song. I will be a bigger Bronson Reed fan.

Bronson to me is the weird man in all of this but, I think with Triple H involved, he could get something going for him with a good singles champion run or a big threat to go through like a gatekeeper of sorts. Big boy with a great amount of athleticism? Can’t really hate on that considering the last time we saw athletic bigger people were Keith Lee and… what was that one guy? Sherman Tank with a Ferrari Engine…?

5. Bray Wyatt

And the last one is the obvious one in all of this. Yes… we have Judgment Day as the somewhat supernatural dark group but we know the true successor of the supernatural and that is “The Eater of Worlds”, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. This time around, I don’t think we will get the Jekyl and Hyde, Mister Rogers gimmick. I believe this time around we get full darkness and mayhem. We get the darkness and the theory of reverting back to your prime.

To make a refresher… Miz went back to being the cocky narcissist after fighting The Fiend. Finn turned back to the Prince and much more. With guys like Edge returning, maybe we see the return of the Heel Ultimate Opportunist, maybe a Fiend fight with AJ Styles to get the TN-AJ perhaps. Possibilities are endless and with a great mind like Wyatt for character and execution, I think Hunter will pick up the phone and Let Him In.

– There are clearly others that I could say, or maybe even didn’t think about, but hey, that’s the Chairshot way of Always Using Your Head. Those are just five returns that could happen and hopefully you read this before RAW or SmackDown and who knows if I get any of these right, maybe I missed an obvious one or maybe we get a giant signing that nobody thought possible. Let me and all of Chairshot know!

King’s Greatest Hits Of Jeff Hardy

As he battles his demons, Chris King looks at some more positive moments in Jeff Hardy’s career!



Jeff Hardy WWE Smackdown

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the disturbing news that former WWE superstar and recent AEW signee Jeff Hardy, was arrested again for multiple charges including a DUI.  Hardy has had a hard and tragic road of recovery throughout the years in multiple wrestling promotions.

Not too long ago, Hardy walked out on WWE after they were rumored to have offered the former world champion to go to treatment for his substance abuse issues. Hardy refused and said that he was better but, as we saw the demons are still lurking and got the best of him again.

I have seen some nasty comments and even some distasteful memes about the AEW superstar and felt compelled to go against the grain. Instead of kicking a man when he’s down, I’m going to put together a greatest hits for the “Charismatic Enigma.”

Jeff Hardy & The TLC Match

Everyone can say that Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon helped innovate the iconic ladder match and you are right, but Jeff Hardy and his death-defying stunts changed the concept of the match forever. The Hardy Boyz vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. Edge & Christian and their iconic TLC match should have their wing in the Hall of Fame. The risks all six superstars took for the adoration of the crowd could have ended all of their illustrious careers. In the words of Vince McMahon, It’s such good shit!

Jeff Hardy Earns The Undertaker’s Respect

On the July 1st, 2002 episode of Monday Night Raw, Hardy delivered the performance of a lifetime nearly winning the WWE Undisputed Championship from The Undertaker in an incredible ladder match. The young up-and-comer was faced with his greatest task yet, challenging for the most prestigious title in sports entertainment. Hardy showed that without a shadow of a doubt he deserved to be in the main event scene, but came within minutes of defeating Taker. At the time of the match, Hardy was still finding his footing as a singles competitor and earned the respect of the champion and legend.

Swanton Bomb From The Heavens

When I think of the daredevil Jeff Hardy, I can’t help but think of this one crazy-as-hell stunt. At WWE One Night Stand 2008, Hardy faced off against the juggernaut Umaga in a falls count anywhere match. This match was so insane as both superstars fought into the parking lot. Hardy is one of the craziest and bravest superstars, hit a Swanton Bomb off a damn stage truck onto Umaga. It’s one of the wildest things you’ll ever see.

Hardy Wins The WWE Championship 

In 2008, Hardy finally made his way to the main event title picture alongside partner Triple H. HHH was Hardy’s mentor in some sort of way which led to the daredevil achieving his lifelong dream of becoming WWE champion. At the 2008 Armageddon pay-per-view, Hardy would face HHH and longtime rival Edge in a triple-threat match for the title. In what was a great match between all three superstars, Hardy delivered a Swanton Bomb to Edge to win the illustrious championship.

Straight Edge Problems For Hardy

The following year, Hardy found himself in the way of young-up-and-comer CM Punk who is looking to make an example out of him. Punk had won the Money in the Bank briefcase for the second year in a row and took advantage of Hardy to win the world title. What started as mutual respect between both superstars changed drastically, when Punk started throwing jabs at Hardy for his drug and substance abuse real-life issues. Punk would form his infamous stable known as the Straight Edge Society. This is a very underrated feud and you should go back and watch it in its entirety. The promos are gold.

The Hardy Boyz Return To WWE

Both Matt and Jeff Hardy found success in multiple other wrestling promotions including Ring of Honor, and TNA during their time away from WWE. Both brothers were struggling with their vices and made poor life choices but straightened up their act over the years. In 2017, the Hardy Boyz would face longtime rivals The Young Bucks in ROH. The following night the adored tag team would make their incredible return to WWE at WrestleMania 33. Matt and Jeff would be named the final team in the Fatal 4-way ladder match for the Raw Tag Team Championships. The pop these two received was insane and very much deserved. They would go on to win the match and win the titles to capitalize on their momentum.

Jeffery Nero Hardy Makes AEW Debut

From 2017-to 2022 Jeff Hardy would find himself pigeonholed in the mid-card title picture. He would have feuds with a plethora of superstars including Samoa Joe, and Randy Orton. Orton and Hardy had a nasty Hell in a Cell match back in 2018. Earlier this year, Hardy was seen running around after the 24/7 Championship, which was disappointing to see. After being genuinely unhappy in WWE, Hardy would make his AEW debut on the March 9th episode of AEW Dynamite. Hardy would come to the aid of his brother and longtime partner.

This week news broke that Hardy had been arrested for multiple charges including a DUI. While it’s easy to beat a man while he’s down, how about we uplift and try to encourage him to get the help he needs.

As a longtime wrestling fan, I have the utmost respect for Hardy and wish him the best of luck in his battle with addiction.
