Luke Gallows was interviewed by NOLA.com to promote this Monday’s RAW at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. Below are a few highlights:
If he had bad blood with WWE after his release in 2010:
“No, I never did. I never said anything bad about WWE. I started wrestling when I was playing college ball at 18, and the WWE picked me up right after I turned 21. I was very young and green in the business. The WWE afforded me opportunities at that age that so many guys don’t get.
“And it gave me a name. When I was released, I wrestled the next day, and I went and I wrestled all over the world. I honed my craft with the goal being to come back and to really be a standout player. That maturity was a good thing for me. I think that it’s helping now, and I hope it shows in my work.”
“Bullet” being removed from The Club name:
“Yeah, we kind of knew that. We were being edgy in Japan (with The Bullet Club), and there’s a bit of a language barrier. The WWE is all about family friendly entertainment. My son and I watch the WWE Network at home all the time. Going with The Club was the way we needed to go to come here and be in this environment, where your kids are watching.”
If The Club will add more members:
“That I can’t really talk about right now. That’s Club business. I can tell you this, though: The Club is all about sending messages, putting everybody in this New Era on high alert. We’re here, we’re here to stay, and we’re here to be the top dogs.”
Gallows also talked about Kevin Nash and Scott Hall giving their blessings for the “Too Sweet” gesture, working with AJ Styles, having a prominent role in WWE and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
