WNZ Open Season: Bullet Club Takeover?

WWE Championship
We don’t even know if WWE can or will use the name. And thus far, no connection has been admitted to that I am aware of. But anyone who knows the indy wrestling scene, or knows the Japanese scene, knows that we had three members of Bullet Club in the house last Monday night. And, they weren’t in small roles, either.

Let’s recap, shall we?

AJ Styles, former lead dog of the Bullet Club, defended his spot as sole number one contender to Roman Reigns’ WWE Championship.

Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson? Oh, they just jumped out of the crowd and attacked Jimmy and Jey Uso following their win in the tag team tournament.

Wait…Jimmy and Jey are cousins of Roman Reigns, aren’t they?

And, it wouldn’t be the first time in the last year when someone looking to send Roman a message, did so through family.

It could evolve into the next major angle in WWE. Talking about Nexxus, before Cena killed it. Shield, before they were broken up. New World Order, before everyone in the WCW locker room was in one faction or another. WWE did sort of address the elephant in the room on this week’s RAW from London, with AJ, Doc and Karl catching up backstage. And then AJ denied working with them, after Doc and Karl jumped Roman following the verbal confrontation between Styles and Reigns. Depending on how things develop between now and Payback, this could be huge. Like, fans being happy Daniel Bryan finally went over at ‘Mania huge.

Am I overstating things? I don’t think that I am. And here is why.

The WWE Universe, by and large, is not fond of Roman Reigns. He is booed, and often fiercely. Even pairing him with Bray Wyatt on RAW did nothing for the current face of the company. It’s a safe bet to say a large percentage of the WWE Universe would be thrilled if, come Payback, Reigns wound up being booked to drop the strap-and that would have been BEFORE the number one contender became AJ Styles.

But, could you imagine if Styles did it, with an assist from Anderson and Gallows, by way of an official Club reunion?

I think the roof would blow off of the arena.

Give WWE a hot, talented and legitimately “over” faction, and things get really interesting in a hurry. That Bullet Club was so immensely popular overseas is certainly a fact that has not been lost in Stamford. WWE has desperately been hunting for “the next big thing” for forever. Now, they have the foundation pieces on the roster, active within the company, and (in the case of Finn Balor) leading NXT.

If they play things perfectly, it may be a stressful next few months for Roman Reigns, but the WWE Universe may be overjoyed.

WNZ readers, are you up for a Bullet Club reunion?

    I’m not sure, the two sneak attacks
    On reigns and the usos were heel Moves, and I highly aj has a heel turn in his future. Gallows and Anderson will get cheered for a little while, but I don’t see an issue with them Getting over as heels long term. I see them again sticking their nose in aj and reigns fued styles trying to take issue and then they’ll
    Take him out too. Maybe reigns and aj vs Anderson and gallows leading into payback. Would also be a great time for Reigns to leave styles high and dry.

      That’s what I was thinking poor aj lol always getting turned on

  • Buss da 6’1

    They hate Reigns so much I bet when he turns heel they cheer him

    • T-Rock (#TeamHollywood)

      Remember when batista came back and the fans demanded that he turn heel? They still booed him, so It will be like that with reigns

  • hotkillerz

    i see them being led by fin and not Aj, but i do see them costing reigns the title.

  • ‘Drowen Hart #NN #NBNC ?????

    I said this last week. I say AJ joins forces with Gallows and Anderson and by the time Balor gets called up to the main roster, AJ gets betrayed by Gallows and Anderson, therefore reuniting the original Bullet Club and starting a feud betwen AJ and Finn.

  • MEH

    Can you imagine if AJ does turn heel and Bullet Club get reformed, Rollins returns as a face and the Shield reunites to face off with Bullet Club = Ching Ching ratings

    • Joseph Lisnow

      maybe toss the Wyatt Family in there? triple threat?
