Karl Anderson Ruminates On A Potential Split With Doc Gallows


Fans don’t think of Karl Anderson without his long-time tag team partner Doc Gallows. The Good Brothers are stalwarts of the tag division wherever they go, most likely because they always go together.

Sports Illustrated caught up with Machine Gun Anderson and broached the topic with him: what would a pro wrestling life look like without Gallows at his side? Anderson has been an accomplished singles wrestler in his own right, so talk of a split between the two is an inevitable conversation topic.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On working singles vs. as a tag team: “People look at us primarily 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***ing love it.”

On his bond with Gallows: “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 [Tonga], 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.”
