Finn Balor recently took part in an interview with Vibe N Wrestling and there he was asked the wrestlers he would choose if he was ever asked to reform The Bullet Club in WWE.
Balor selected AJ Styles and Adam Cole to be the two wrestlers. “This is how things work and the nature of the business, but if you were to build a new Bullet Club, AJ Styles and Adam Cole would be the two people. We have a lot of history between us, we have a similar past. We have all been leaders of the Bullet Club, so getting together would be very special,” he said.
Bullet Club Was Founded by Finn Balor
Bullet Club stable primarily appearing in the Japanese promotion New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW). In the United States, the group appears most notably in Ring of Honor (ROH), and sometimes the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA).
The group was formed in May 2013, when Irish wrestler Prince Devitt (Finn Balor) betrayed his Japanese partner Ryusuke Taguchi and came together with American wrestler Karl Anderson and Tongan wrestlers Bad Luck Fale and Tama Tonga to form a villainous stable of foreigners, which they subsequently named Bullet Club. Before the end of the year, the stable was also joined by three other Americans, The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) and Doc Gallows.
Since then, Bullet Club has seen numerous changes in membership, leadership, numerous subgroups, betrayals and kickouts.
Interestingly enough, AJ Styles and Adam Cole are both former members of the Bullet Club, with Styles a former leader of the group.
The group has been compared to the World Championship Wrestling (WCW) stable New World Order (nWo). As a way of paying homage to the nWo, members of Bullet Club began using the stable’s signature “Too Sweet” hand gesture. Jeff Jarrett is the only wrestler to have been a a part of both the stables, while Scott Hall’s son Cody Hall has been a member as well.
It will certainly be interesting to see Balor form a partnership with Styles and Cole in the main roster. Styles has already played off the stable with ‘The Club’ alongside recently released Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows. More interesting will be to choose a leader for the group, with all three of them terrific wrestlers in their own right.
