AJ was a TNA original and wrestled for over a decade with TNA before moving on to headline for New Japan Pro Wrestling.
Luke Gallows was in WWE extensively, first as Festus (who teamed with Jesse) and then later as a member of CM Punk’s Straight Edge Society.
Anderson was also apparently close to coming to TNA, but the story goes is that once the WWE deal came, things changed.
Nakamura, who is currently the IWGP Intercontinental champion, will finish up with the company before leaving.
