Fightful Select has shared a new piece of information about NJPW and The Good Brothers.
In the new report, it says that Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson worked for NJPW without contracts and on the basis of a verbal agreement. Fightful was told that New Japan Pro-Wrestling knew that Gallows and Anderson were probably going to move to WWE. The Good Brothers wanted to go back to WWE when they were still under contract with Impact Wrestling.
According to the report, WWE will let The Good Brothers work some of their already scheduled NJPW dates. However, it is still not clear if they will be able to work on Wrestle Kingdom 17 in January.
Anderson has been the champion of the NEVER Openweight Title since June 12, 2022. He won the title by beating Tama Tonga at Dominion 6.12 in Japan’s Osaka-jo Hall.
It was said to be a “big money deal” that Gallows and Anderson officially signed with WWE.
Last Monday, Anderson and Gallows came back to WWE on “Raw” in Brooklyn, New York, to see A.J. Styles again. They came back to help Styles make things fair and stop Judgment Day.
Before coming back to WWE, Gallows and Anderson had not been there since April 2020, when they were let go. Before they were let go, their last WWE match was the pre-recorded Boneyard Match at WrestleMania 36, where they tried to help Styles beat The Undertaker but lost.
The Longest Title Reigns In WWE History
Most wrestlers want to leave such a big mark on the business that people still talk about them long after they’re gone. This could be done, for example, by making a memorable character, putting on memorable matches, or getting caught in the middle of a famous or infamous story. They could also try to win one or two titles along the way.
Championship titles show that you’ve made it, no matter what level you’re at. You’re the best at what you do, the best in your division, and destined to go down in history. This is, of course, where the real challenge begins.
It’s one thing to beat the former champion after clawing your way to the top of the mountain. It’s a whole other thing to stay at the top when there are hungry competitors all around you. Some haven’t been able to keep their position for long, while others have made it look easy to be in charge.
Since it started more than 50 years ago, the WWE has been proud to host more than a few long title reigns. Here are some of the longest ever, according to the company’s kayfabe records, and the great people who made them happen.
WWF Women’s Champion – 502 days
Long before Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch took over the ring, names like Rockin’ Robin were at the top of the women’s division in the WWE, which was then called the WWF. She made her debut at the Survivor Series in 1987 in one of the event’s signature tag matches. She quickly rose to the top of the women’s ranks in the company.
So, she got into a fight with Sherri Martel, who was the WWF Women’s Champion at the time. This ended her reign, which had been going on for well over a year. The change happened at a WWF show in Paris, France, on October 7, 1988. The new reign would last 502 days.
In the months that followed, Rockin’ Robin showed that she was a very good fighter. Robin also beat Martel, who tried and failed more than once to get her title back. Other people, like Judy Martin and the Fabulous Moolah, also tried and failed to dethrone Robin.
In fact, no one would, since she left the WWF in 1990, and the company soon after decided to retire the title until 1993. She told Wrestling Epicenter in 2021 that she had tried to return the belt many times but was told to keep it instead. Since then, she has kept it.
