On April 15, WWE released 34 Superstars including Heath Slater, Cain Velasquez, Rusev, Zack Ryder, and Curt Hawkins. The releases came after WWE announced they would be making cutbacks because of the coronavirus pandemic despite estimates showing the company was on course to make record profits in 2020.
O.C. members Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows (Doc Gallows) were also let go by the wrestling behemoth, but the tag team has remained positive since their releases. Karl Anderson has already revived his "Machine Gun" persona and teased The Good Brothers could be heading back to New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
Doc Gallows has also revived one of his old personas as he filed to trademark "Sex Ferguson" on April 22. Gallows used the character before he signed with WWE on Colt Cabana's Wrestling Road Stories. He then used a more PG version of the gimmick for Southpaw Regional Wrestling as "Tex Ferguson" along with Anderson who played Chadd 2 Badd.
It didn't take long for Doc to release Sex Ferguson merchandise, as there are already t-shirts available at Pro Wrestling Tees.
