#5 The Club's future depends on these two men
Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows — a legendary tag team in NJPW — have faltered since their move to the WWE but there is some hope for The Club. Just looking at the fan reaction to the "Two Sweet" gesture after the Finn Balor vs AJ Styles match, a reunion can save Gallows and Anderson's career.
It can be either Balor or Styles or even both, but at least one of them needs to align with The Goodbrothers.
