Luke Gallows Says He And Karl Anderson Got Tested For COVID-19 Before Shooting BTE Sketch

Good Brothers always take precautions no matter the circumstances.

Doc (Luke) Gallows and Karl Anderson have not stopped making waves since their no-compete clause from WWE expired on Saturday, July 18. Not only did they make their presence felt in IMPACT Wrestling, they dished all the dirt on their WWE run in an exodus podcast and we're even featured recently on Being The Elite in a sketch with their friends, Matt and Nick Jackson, The Young Bucks.

Speaking with Bill Pritchard of WrestleZone, Luke Gallows opened up about how much wrestling has changed since the global coronavirus pandemic and revealed that he and Anderson were tested prior to shooting the sketch for BTE with Matt and Nick Jackson.

“In talking about protocols, it’s the masks, the social distancing, the temperature checks. It’s where it used to be thirty of us sitting around and shooting the shit and hanging out together, you can’t do that anymore,” Gallows said. “You have to social distance, even putting gloves on to get your catering food or whatever it may be, everybody’s being careful.

“We went to AEW to shoot the BTE gimmick with the [Young Bucks] in the hotel for their show and we actually had the finger prick and had the COVID test there, and it’s the same stuff. We shot Talk ’N Shop A-Mania two weeks ago on my property in Georgia. My wife’s an ER nurse, she’s on the frontlines. We made that decision,” Gallows said, “because financially we’re in a situation where we can do that and she’s working on her doctorate now. She puts scrubs on and gloves, a mask and we had a COVID check at the end of my driveway because you have to do that. It’s a different time and hopefully, this pandemic stuff will ease up and slow down but it’s irresponsible not to be safe. We’re driving right now, we’re in Tennessee crossing into Georgia, and if we’re walking into a gas station everyone’s got a mask on and it’s the same thing with wrestling. With wrestling, you’re more at risk because you’re out there sweating all over each other and you’re in close contact, so you have to be as careful as possible. It’s something that none of us were prepared for or used to.”

Talk ’N Shop A-Mania, a spoof pay-per-view event, will take place on August 1st and be available for order on FITE.
