WNS: Hi Luke - You recently performed at the NJPW and GFW co-show Wrestle Kingdom 9 and participated in a thrilling tag team match. How was the experience of that show?
Gallows: Wrestle Kingdom is always special, we won the belts their last year & this yr we got to bring the amazing NJPW product to US audiences so it was thrilling. Catch NJPW on AXS TV every friday night at 9 here in the US as well. My lovely wife Amber debuted with us as well which was a career highlight for her.
WNS: Obviously alot of fans will remember you from WWE alongside CM Punk and Serena in the Straight Edge Society. On the podcast with Colt Cabana, Punk said he felt WWE dropped the ball with the stable. Do you echo that sentiment?
Gallows: I do, I think that the SES was captivating and had legs. It imploded at Summerslam 2010 with Joey Mercury tearing his left pec off his shoulder and Serena's sudden release from the company.
WNS: On the 25th of January you are going to be competing at Vintage Wrestling in Florida. With WWE's notorious schedule with their talent, do you prefer working independently?
Gallows: My New Japan schedule is more intense than any WWE schedule that I ever worked esp now with the the popularity of Bullet Club. I do enjoy the indies as I came from them & that is why I still do them when I am home. It is intimate experience with genuine fans, limited boundaries, & a ton of Hell raising on my part.
WNS: Speaking of the Bullet Club which has taken the Wrestling world by storm, do you think you will be able to maintain the momentum you have generated or is the sky the limit?
Gallows: I believe we have a TON of untapped potential & judging by what NJPW & its partner companies have in store 2015 will be the year of #BulletClub.
WNS: During your time with TNA you were apart of the Aces and Eights and for the first few months of that angle, TNA gained ground on WWE. What went wrong?
Gallows: Haha, who knows, ask TNA. I did enjoy that time & for a moment we had great momentum. Of course, I'm a faction man, so naturally I enjoyed that. Working with Sting was a pleasure.
WNS: Are you happy to see Sting finally arrive in WWE? Could we ever expect you back inside a WWE ring?
Gallows: I am happy for Sting, but very happy in New Japan & GFW. New Japan did HUGE business in 2014, & 2015 will be even better.
WNS: Thank you for your time Luke. We look forward to seeing what 2015 has in store for you.
Gallows: Thanks for having me, the #BulletBabe & I promise to ROCK Vintage Wrestling WrestleBrawl VI so come out, get an autograph, say Hello, and follow me on twitter @impactdoc & prowrestlingtees.com/biglg.
