WWE has reportedly snagged Bullet Club members AJ Styles, Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows

In what has to be great news for wrestling fans all over the world, WWE has reportedly signed major New japan Pro Wrestling stars, including AJ Styles, IWGP Shinsuke Nakamura, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson.

The group, popular for the ‘Bullet Club’ gimmick, reportedly have let their intentions known to NJPW booker Gedo before the WrestleKingdom event that took place yesterday morning,

While there is no word on when the group will begin working with the WWE, one has to assume that Nakamura will be staying a bit in NJPW as he being the champ, will have to drop the belt before he leaves.

The reports also say that Anderson was in talks with TNA about a deal, when WWE came through. Anderson, Gallows and Nakamura are expected to honor their Ring of Honor dates for February.

As per Wrestling Observer Radio,  AJ Styles has been working without a contract, even though he was booked in one of the top matches on the company’s biggest show. 

Since Samoa Joe’s successful foray into WWE NXT, AJ Styles has been quoted as saying that he is open to going to WWE or NXT, if it is good for his family.
