WWE is gearing up to host WrestleMania XL in Philadelphia on April 6 and 7. The Show of Shows is known for creating new stars, and over the past few years, the company has invested more time in its future stars. Recently, it was reported that a former 15-time NJPW champion is heading towards Titanland.

Tama Tonga spent over a decade with NJPW after a failed WWE tryout in 2008. He has accomplished a lot over the past decade in Japan, being a former seven-time IWGP Tag Champion, four-time Never Openweight Champion, and four-time Never Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Champion.

Tonga is one of the founding members of the Bullet Club and recently had his last match in the Land of the Rising Sun at NJPW's The New Beginning in Sapporo, Japan, against El Phantasmo and Hikuleo. According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, former NJPW star Tama Tonga is now headed to WWE.

It will be interesting to see if Tonga aligns with former members of the Bullet Club after potentially signing with the Stamford-based company.

Bullet Club is one of the biggest and long-standing stables in the world of professional wrestling. Several notable names from the faction have gone to different promotions after their respective runs in NJPW.

AJ Styles, Finn Balor, Cody Rhodes, and Kenny Omega eventually returned to the wrestling scene in the United States and joined major promotions. Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows were also an integral part of the faction since its inception in 2013.

In 2022, the duo returned, after being released from WWE in 2020, and aligned with AJ Styles to reform The O.C. Lately, The Phenomenal One turned heel and moved away from his pack after a heated argument with Anderson on Friday Night SmackDown.

Earlier this month, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson showed up on the developmental brand and made a statement in the tag team division. It's possible that the duo is set to have a run on the brand in the coming weeks.
