Ahead of IMPACT Wrestling’s Bound for Glory, the Good Brothers took part in a IMPACT Press Pass Live call with the media. During the conversation, Doc Gallows was asked whether or not he could ever see his former stablemate AJ Styles return to IMPACT Wrestling. “The Big LG” responded by sharing his firm belief that “The Phenomenal One” will eventually come home at least once.
“I’ll say this,” Gallows said. “I don’t know what the schedule is or what kinda surprises IMPACT Wrestling has in store for the Hall of Fame or Bound For Glory. I would be very remiss if I didn’t say that before AJ Styles hangs up the boots, I’m highly confident we’ll see him in an IMPACT Wrestling ring at least one more time.”
Gallows went on to praise Styles and noted that he plans to personally invite Styles back when it was time to induct the Good Brothers into IMPACT’s Hall of Fame. He also stated that, with Styles’ track record in TNA/IMPACT, he certainly deserves a Hall of Fame induction.
“A first-ballot Hall of Famer for sure, whether it’s now or ten years from now or twenty years from now, but for sure, just like us,” said Gallows. “We’re gonna make Alan [Styles] do our induction speech, so we know he’ll be there for that.”
Styles was widely considered the face of TNA/IMPACT Wrestling; he was one of the promotion’s top stars for several years, and he won the promotion’s world title five times. (He won the NWA World Heavyweight Championship three times and the TNA/IMPACT’s World Heavyweight Championship twice.) Among other accolades, Styles is a six-time TNA X-Division Champion, and he was the promotion’s first Grand Slam Champion.)
On the call, Gallows also teased that fans won’t want to miss the surprises IMPACT has in store at Bound For Glory, whatever they may be.
“But I will say this, with Bound For Glory around the corner, that’s the subject of Press Pass with Wrestle Week coming up next week, IMPACT Wrestling delivers in the surprise department and I have no doubt that there will be massive surprises at Bound For Glory so I keep saying this but it’s a really exciting time to be a pro wrestler but even more so to be a professional wrestling fan and to be an IMPACT Wrestling fan. So I hope everybody is tuned into BFG because it’s gonna happen live and you don’t wanna be the guy who sees the replay or sees the GIF on Twitter. You want to see these people appear live so make sure you tune in.”
