The popular Bullet Club – or a reincarnation of it – is coming to WWE as now even the WWE website is reporting on the “rumors” that AJ Styles, Karl Anderson, and Doc Gallows are coming along with IWGP Intercontinental champion Shinsuke Nakamura.
“The office of WWE COO and EVP of Talent Relations Triple H declined to comment on the rumors for WWE.com,” the story said, published today after yesterday the news leaked that the big four of New Japan Pro Wrestling are crossing over.
The Bullet Club is a faction which was led by current NXT champion Finn Balor under his previous character, Prince Devitt. During WrestleKingdom 10, Anderson won wrestling trunks that had Balor’s demon design on them and the Twitter account for the faction then told Balor to keep extra Balor Club shirts around in case they need them.
Earlier today, Balor posted a photo of him outside the WWE Performance Center, holding the door and looking at his watch saying that “They should have been here by now…” and the WWE Facebook page posted AJ Styles’ first match in WWE back in 2002 on the Jakked television show.
When the group is expected to arrive remains to be seen however Nakamura is holding an IWGP title for New Japan and will most likely be allowed to drop the title before moving to WWE. There are already rumors that AJ Styles is set to be a surprise entrant at the Royal Rumble.
