Update On Gallows & Anderson Leaving WWE Rumor

The tag team of Gallows and Anderson has not appeared on WWE programming much throughout the last few months. Couple that with a series of WWE superstars being released this past week, and it added speculation about Gallows and Anderson possibly being released from the company.

But as Johnson noted, Anderson squashed any rumors about the tandem leaving by posting this tweet on Monday.


So fans who were worried about this tag team leaving the WWE have nothing to worry about. The former Raw Tag Team Champions may not have been seen on television much lately, but their tenure in the WWE isn't ending anytime soon.

Perhaps WWE.com's announcement of Darren Young, Summer Rae, and Emma being released were why some fans became concerned about Anderson and Gallows being next. It is unclear why the two men haven't been seen on Raw much lately, especially considering the small quantity of tag teams in the division right now.

With Anderson announcing their return, you do wonder if this tag team will start to show up more frequently now. Jeff Hardy is out for several months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff, leaving brother Matt on his own for the time being.

Big Cass and Enzo Amore broke up a couple of months ago, leaving Dean Ambrose/Seth Rollins and Sheamus/Cesaro as the last two notable tag teams for the time being. Unless WWE wants to go forward with The Shield facing those two men for the long-term, then it only makes sense to bring Anderson and Gallows back into the tag team picture before long.

Gallows and Anderson began their reign together in New Japan Pro-Wrestling, before moving to Ring of Honor from 2014 to 2016. They then joined WWE in April 2016,  but haven't quite had the big push that many expected. We'll see if WWE tries to use them more in the coming months, given the lack of depth in tag teams on Raw.
