Gallows and Anderson’s New Contract Signings Update
As noted before, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson reportedly have signed new five-year contracts with WWE.
PWInsider’s Mike Johnson reported that Gallows and Anderson signed new deals with the company after being satisfied with the monetary amount offered, stated to have been “ridiculously amazing,” and promises of a meaningful new push as a group with AJ Styles. Johnson also reported that several companies, including New Japan Pro Wrestling and All Elite Wrestling, had shown interest in potentially signing the team had they been available on the market.
It was also reported Gallows and Anderson had plans to start a new wrestling podcast, but those plans appear to have been halted at least for now due to their recent signings with the company.
Sasha Banks Status Update
As noted before, Sasha Banks has been away from WWE since WrestleMania 35 due to issues regarding the direction of her career in the company and booking issues involving the Women’s Tag Team Championship. WWE reportedly held a meeting with Banks in late May to try to resolve her issues while Banks herself has been working on new content for this year’s WWE 2K20 video game.
PWInsider’s Paul Johnson reported that for what it’s worth, Banks has been locally advertised for the July 22nd episode of RAW in Tampa Bay, Florida. Nikki Cross also recommended that Bayley “get a friend” on Raw, which has led to speculation that Sasha’s return could be coming soon.
