The day after New Japan Pro Wrestling’s biggest show of the year, Wrestle Kingdom 10, a handful of the promotion’s top stars gave their notice and let the world know they were WWE-bound. AJ Styles debuted at the Royal Rumble, Shinsuke Nakamura showed up at NXT TakeOver: Dallas, and now we have the final piece: Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows.
The former Bullet Club (and future Balor Club?) members made their presence felt after the Usos defeated the Social Outcasts in the first round of a tag team number one contenders tournament. Anderson and Gallows jumped the Usos and brutally attacked them, leaving them lying. They were escorted out through the crowd by security as a “Bullet Club” chant started up. And hey, when Raw returned from commercial, Michael Cole identified them by name and noted that they’ve been expected to pop up in WWE for months.
