In a backstage segment on this past week’s Monday Night RAW, Finn Balor stated that not only would he enter this year’s Royal Rumble match, but also that he’d be partnering with Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson in a six-man tag team match against Elias (Sampson) and the Miztourage (Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel) later that night on RAW. While this type of announcement likely wouldn’t be that intriguing involving anyone else, what makes this declaration matter is that Balor, Gallows and Anderson would be reviving their partnership in Japan as founding members of the popular stable, the Bullet Club.
When the bell rang to start the match, Elias would immediately attack Balor, but that wouldn’t long as Gallows and Anderson started doing what they do best: beating-up everyone. Following a combination of Gallows and Anderson’s Magic Killer and Balor’s Coup De Grace finishing moves, the newly-reunited Club captured the victory. This is significant because ever since the WWE debuts of Balor (in 2014), A.J. Styles, Gallows, and Anderson (as all three in 2016 as “The Club”), fans have been waiting for a reformation of the Bullet Club — in SOME capacity — and after feeling that WWE had been spinning their wheels on what to do with Balor, Gallows and Anderson, this is a VERY NICE turn of events.
“Now put the Usos in the group, too. And put some Trapper Keeper pants on TM-61 and tell them to do nothing but superkicks.”
I couldn’t agree more, sir; couldn’t agree more…
