Freddie Prinze Jr. Says The Good Brothers Were 'Screwed Bad' By WWE When Released In 2020
The Good Brothers were cut by WWE in 2020 before returning in 2022
The OC reformed on WWE TV recently, when Gallows and Anderson returned to assist AJ Styles in his war against Judgement Day.
This is Gallows and Anderson’s first run back with WWE since they were released in 2020, and according to Freddie Prinze Jr. on the Wrestling With Freddie podcast, that initial release ‘screwed’ the team over:
"These guys [Gallows and Anderson] got screwed bad by the previous regime at WWE, and were asked, 'Sit tight, we're gonna take care of you guys. We're gonna give you that sweet contract.' And then they were just released and felt very lied to. That's not inside stuff. I think Karl [Anderson] or Luke [Gallows], one of them actually spoke about it,” said Prinze Jr.
The team signed new deals with WWE in 2019 amidst strong rumours suggesting the pair were set to rejoin their Bullet Club mates Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks in the newly formed AEW.
Prinze Jr. added; "When the Good Brothers got done [dirty] like that, it was a corporate jerk off move. I hate it when that happens, and I'm glad to see them back. I hope they got their money."
Gallows, Anderson, and AJ Styles are set to take on The Judgement Day at WWE Crown Jewel on November 5.
