WWE Rumors: Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson Starting in NXT?


Are the former Bullet Club members heading to WWE NXT?

According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t WrestlingInc.com), Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson are heading to NXT when they come to WWE.

The report says that Gallows and Anderson are expected to be at the NXT tapings in early March from Full Sail University.

If the report is true, then it is likely that Gallows and Anderson will join up with current NXT Champion Finn Balor, who when he was known as Prince Devitt in New Japan Pro Wrestling, was the leader of the Bullet Club.

The report goes on to say that there is no word yet on if AJ Styles would join the group in NXT. He was rumored to be a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble match, but those are just rumors at this point.

If Gallows and Anderson do debut in NXT, it will give NXT one of the most powerful factions in wrestling, albeit without the “Bullet Club” name. That name is still owned by NJPW, but WWE would most likely go with “Balor Club” instead.

The prospect of a Bullet-Balor Club in NXT has made people plenty excited.

  • Gallows, previously known as Festus and Luke Gallows in WWE, and Karl Anderson would bolster an already stacked NXT tag team division. As members of the Bullet Club, Gallows and Anderson were three-time IGWP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions. Adding the two powerhouses would give another boost to a very stacked tag division.

    NXT was the original home of the Wyatt Family and has not had a dominant faction since. The Shield made some appearances after their main roster debut, but there has not been a faction running wild over NXT since the Wyatts. The Balor Club, if booked properly, could do just that.

    Adding Gallows and Anderson would also give Finn Balor some much-needed character development. It would let fans see him as a leader and let him ooze some more charisma than just his entrance. Balor’s character still hasn’t been fully developed, but the Balor Club is the perfect remedy.
