The discussions of NJPW talent coming to WWE took another strange turn with this Finn Balor interview.

Well, things have apparently taken another step forward in the direction of bizarre.

In an interview on WWE.com, they had Finn Balor discuss the rumors about these four men possibly coming to WWE.

Here is a few parts of the interview below.

Balor on Nakamura:

"But outside of the ring, I can honestly say he was one of my one, true Japanese friends I made in the eight years I was in Japan. I spent a lot of time with him outside of the ring just living life. He’s a very cultured guy, and he thinks outside the box. I think we hit it off with our appreciation for just trying to be different."

Balor on his relationship with the Bullet Club:

  • "The Bullet Club was essentially in existence long before it was ever onscreen. Myself and Karl Anderson were best friends in and out of the ring. Tama Tonga and Bad Luck Fale were the other foreign wrestlers in New Japan. Essentially we lived together, traveled together, ate together, drank together and spent four years being in each other’s company."

    Balor on debuting on the main roster with the Bullet Club:

    "And perhaps, in the future, if Bullet Club were to arrive on Monday Night Raw, there would be no better way for Finn Bálor to make his debut than with his best friends by his side."

    The name dropping here of all these talents has to make one think these men are coming to WWE. Even though it’s gearing traffic towards their website, it’s still an unprecedented and bizarre move of WWE’s to do.

    The mention of Bullet Club multiple times is also odd because NJPW owns the rights to the name. Could it mean WWE is going to purchase the rights to use if and when these wrestlers come to the company?
