Karl Anderson Addresses Possible Split From Doc Gallows
What does the future hold for the Good Brothers?
Though he is best known for his work with Good Brothers tag partner Doc Gallows, Karl Anderson is currently making waves as a singles performer in New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
The reigning NEVER Openweight Champion recently spoke with Sports Illustrated about his ambitions for a prolonged singles run, as well as the future of his team with Gallows.
On if he would like to extend his current NJPW singles run, the Machine Gun said:
"People look at us primarily [as] Anderson and Gallows, or Gallows and Anderson, and I love tag-team wrestling, but I do want a singles run. I came into my own during the G1 in 2011 when I started learning from Tanahashi and Shinsuke [Nakamura]. I wanted to build the types of matches they were creating, and then I started to do that.
"I absolutely want an extended singles run in New Japan Pro-Wrestling. I was pushing for one in IMPACT, but the timing just didn't work out. I love singles matches. It's a different way to show people what I can do. I f*cking love it".
Despite his desire to try things solo, Anderson understands that he and Gallows are a 'package deal', saying:
"No matter what, I'll always be aligned with Gallows. When we came back to New Japan, there were no plans for a real tag team feud with anybody. It was this program with Tama, but with me and Gallows, it's always understood that we're together. I've been on the road with him for 10 straight years. I don't know what I'd do without him. He's walked me to my room, and I've walked him to his room. We look out for each other, and we have a ridiculous chemistry together as humans that people want to see. We're a package deal".
