Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows are locked up for quite some time, Fightful Select has learned.
If you were expecting anything short term out of The OC/Bullet Club/Good Brothers combination, that doesn't look to be the case. When asking within WWE about the length of some WWE deals, Fightful Select had learned that many are three-year deals, expiring in mid-to-late 2025. Not The OC's, according to sources familiar with the situation.
Fightful was told that Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows are both under five-year WWE contracts that have them set to stay with the company until late 2027. When we asked about why the deals were longer than others we've heard about, one higher up said that Triple H had helped negotiate their decision in 2019 to stay with the company over AEW, NJPW and IMPACT, and felt badly that they were released prematurely.
The OC were not at the Royal Rumble, and had requested that they not be brought in if they weren't to be used.
