Luke Gallows on Speaking to AJ Styles after WWE Release
"He said he was sorry, which he didn't have to say, and I wasn't looking for an apology from him," Gallows revealed.
"But it's been well documented, and AJ said it himself over on his streaming service, that he felt responsible for us staying when we wanted to leave (last year). WWE kept wanting to pile more money. That wasn't the final reason we stayed.
"The reason we stayed was to be there and to roll with our buddy. We ended up getting released when the pandemic hit, but I couldn't blame him for that. He couldn't see the future. He just wanted to do what was best for his friend and that was to convince us to stay, and we ended up staying, but nobody forced us to do anything."
GAllows also stated that he and AJ Styles are on good terms with each other. They are still friends. Gallows and Anderson simply wanted to leave WWE and AJ Styles had nothing to do with it. "At the end of the day, we made that decision, right or wrong" Gallows said.
"So there is no hard feelings there at all. AJ called me after 20 minutes when it was online, and we talked. I told him what I am telling you guys now. I don't fault anybody for anything that ever happened in my career, and at the end of the day, you need to look at yourself in the mirror.
This has turned into nothing but a huge positive. You can't look in the rear view mirror, you gotta keep stepping forward." Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows are now part of Impact Wrestling. Impact Wrestling was the promotion in which they actually got extremely famous.
"Karl and I both have a long history with Scott D'Amore," Luke Gallows noted. "Scott helped me when I was leaving TNA years ago to go to New Japan. Scott put me into contact with those people, putting together a very nice deal for me at the time.
He's always been a business associate but also a good friend. They put together a very nice offer that had an unlimited schedule, but the most attractive thing about it was the people at IMPACT were fully on board with co-promoting our brand."
