Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows have been the subject of some unconfirmed rumors as of late. The WWE contracts for both Anderson and Gallows are believed to expire in September.

It was reported by PW Insider last week that Anderson and Gallows had turned down multi-million dollar deals from WWE. With the belief AEW intends to stock their roster with tag teams, the news led to speculation the Club could be on their way out of the company. Anderson then took to Twitter using the hashtag #DontBelieveEverythingYouRead to indicate these rumors are not completely accurate.

Several WWE Superstars announced on social media they had requested their release from the company. Tye Dillinger and Hideo Itami both went public with their requests and were granted their release. Others have publicly stated reports of them asking for their release are inaccurate. In the case of the Revival, Dash Wilder has said reports of them asking for their release were “lost in translation”.

Further details regarding this story were leaked to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently.

“There are a lot of factors in play but what I can say is that they have not decided what their next move is at this point,” wrote Dave Meltzer. “They could stay. They could go.”

“Many have not signed because they are waiting to see the lay of the land when their deals are up,” noted Meltzer. “For Gallows & Anderson, they’ll have a far better idea in September about their next five years than now.”

“Happy for our friends,” Anderson added. “Happy for the industry and I hope everybody succeeds.”
