One of professional wrestling’s top companies, IMPACT Wrestling airs every Tuesday night on AXS TV. The company’s recent Slammiversary event made headlines when IMPACT revealed some of its big new signings as part of the pay-per-view. Among those big signings were one of professional wrestling’s top tag teams of the last decades, The Good Brothers.
Comprised of Karl Anderson and “The Big LG” Doc Gallows, The Good Brothers have held championship gold and main-evented big events in other major wrestling companies, although not (yet?) IMPACT. Further interesting about IMPACT’s signing of The Good Brothers to IMPACT is that Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows are able to openly work on and promote non-IMPACT projects. This includes the upcoming TalkN’ShopAmania pay-per-view, which hits FITE TV on August 1st, and the Talk’n Shop podcast.
I had the pleasure of interviewing both Karl Anderson and “The Big LG” Doc Gallows via phone on July 27, 2020, as embedded below in its entirety. While talking with The Good Brothers, I asked whether Chicago is one of their favorite places to wrestle:
Doc Gallows: The reaction there’s always great, that Rosemont [Horizon] area. There are certain pockets around the country and world that have extra love for us. Those are probably our favorites, Chicago being one of them…
Karl Anderson: It’s really those cities that really clasped onto The Bullet Club… Chicago is one of those. Every time we come out in one of those cities, Chicago being one of them, we always get a big reaction, we always get a lot of love from them. A lot of Good Brothers / Bullet Club love. We love going to Chicago. It’s one of our favorite cities to land in. I still remember a Money In The Bank match we had there recently. I’m a big Chicago hot dog guy, too. It makes me love it every more.
Doc Gallows: I love the $20 shake, myself. (laughs)
