Wrestling fans have been clamoring for a Bullet Club reunion ever since Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson joined the WWE two years ago. Gallows and Anderson had a brief run with AJ Styles before he was shipped over to Smackdown last year. Now Finn Balor is teasing fans on Twitter with a picture of himself and his two buddies from New Japan.

Balor is currently involved in a feud with Bray Wyatt, sorta. Wyatt had been tormenting Balor ever since he came to RAW last month. Now he’s involved in a Fatal Fiveway next month with Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Samoa Joe. The winner will move on to face Brock Lesnar at Great Balls of Fire later this summer.
It’s possible we could see Gallows and Anderson interject themselves at Extreme Rules to help Balor but in order for that to happen Balor would have to turn heel. Given that there are a lot of top babyfaces on RAW turning bad could be a good idea for Balor since he is stuck behind Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins right now at the top of the good guy pecking order. And with Dean Ambrose holding the Intercontinental Title there seems to be too many babyfaces and not enough top heels to go around.
With Samoa Joe and Bray Wyatt as the top heels in absence of WWE Universal champ Brock Lesnar and an injured Braun Strowman it would do the WWE good to have another top heel and stable to have on RAW. The Bullet Club has been teased since Balor was in NXT but if the WWE wanted to pull the trigger on it they could make a ton in t-shirt revenue. It’s just too bad Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles aren’t on RAW to join their old buddies in reaking havoc on the red brand on Mondays.
