It should be noted that Styles said on record in previous interviews that he was looking for financial stability for his family well after his wrestling career is over.
Regarding Karl Anderson, & Doc Gallows, the tag team are advertised for NJPW and ROH events through March. Gallows would be cleared to sign with WWE because he doesnâ€™t have an exclusive contract (pay-per-appearance only) with NJPW or ROH although the possibility of him skipping those events that he is advertised for are very slim. He was in Pittsburgh last week to do medical testing for WWE. Anderson does have an exclusive deal with both NJPW and ROH so he could not appear at the Rumble.
TNA also reached out to the tag team about joining the promotion, but they as well could not reach a deal.
Finally, WWE cannot use the name â€śBullet Clubâ€ť because NJPW has the rights to the name. Thus, the reason that WWE recently filed for â€śBalor Clubâ€ť as a trademark.
