The WWE has lost several stars to the independent circuit over the past several years, and earlier this week they were rumored to be losing yet another pair of top-name talents as well.
Last year son of WWE Hall Of Famer Dusty Rhodes, Cody Rhodes, decided to walk away from the WWE after growing tired of his then-"Stardust" gimmick that held him to the middle of the card.
Rhodes believed he had a ton more talent to offer on the main event scene, and opted to depart for the independent circuit to prove just that.
Since leaving Rhodes has certainly made a great case for himself as a main eventer, capturing the Ring Of Honor (ROH) World Heavyweight Championship, cutting some of the best promos of his career, putting on extraordinary matches, and becoming one of the most demanded indie stars in the world.
Two more stars who decided to bet on themselves and depart for the indies yet again were former WWE Cruiserweight Title contenders Neville and Austin Aries.
At one point Neville and Aries' rivalry was the hottest thing in the Cruiserweight division, however, one of their title matches as forced to open WrestleMania 33 on the pre-show - a match that didn't even make the event's DVD.
This is something that didn't sit well with either man, and Aries was the first to request his release from the company in order to return to the indies. Neville soon followed suit around the time he was forced to job to glorified talker and mediocre in-ring performer Enzo Amore.
After Neville's departure rumors began to run rampant indicating that more talents could follow the charge in order to better themselves as performers, and make more money in the process. The latest rumors had former RAW Tag Team Champions and top WWE names Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson in that mix.
Gallows and Anderson are former New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) stars who were once members of the famed Bullet Club faction that has become so famous today. They are one of the top stars in WWE's Tag Team Division and have teased club reunions with former members AJ Styles and Finn Balor on multiple occasions.
These rumors escalated when both Anderson and Gallows removed all WWE references on their social media profiles, and friend Finn Balor posted a cryptic message on his Twitter soon after.
Per a report from RingSideNews, however, these rumors of Gallows and Anderson's departure are completely false, and the pair are actually scheduled to appear at the WWE's European tour.
What are your thoughts on the fact that Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows aren't leaving WWE anytime soon? Do you think they made a mistake by leaving Japan where they were involved with one of the biggest factions in professional wrestling today?
