It's official: Luke "Doc" Gallows and Karl Anderson are headed to Impact Wrestling.
Gallows and Anderson confirmed the news at the beginning of their Talk'N Shop Live podcast. The two were released from WWE on April 15, and their non-compete clauses expired at midnight at the start of Saturday, enabling them to sign with Impact Wrestling.
As part of their announcement, the two plugged Saturday night's Slammiversary pay-per-view, and have said they will be at the event. It's not known what capacity the two will appear in.
An earlier report from Gary Cassidy of SportsKeeda said that the two would also be allowed to work for New Japan as part of their Impact deals, but that subject was not addressed in Gallows and Anderson's announcement.
This will mark Anderson's debut with the promotion. Gallows previously wrestled for Impact as part of the infamous Aces and Eights stable in 2012-13.
The two are scheduled to host an event called Talk'N Shop A-Mania on August 1, with guests that include other recent WWE exiles such as Heath Slater, Rhino, Enzo Amore, and Mike and Maria Bennett, among others.
