Impact Wrestling has a huge wave of momentum following Slammiversary, and they intend on becoming a major player again.

The Slammiversary Pay Per View had it all. Deonna Purrazzo and Jordynne Grace stole the show in a Knockouts Title match, Chris Bey won the X Division Title, Eddie Edwards conquered the world title, and a bevy of world-class wrestlers made their returns or debuts in Impact Wrestling. It was a wonderful night, and Impact has done a good job of capitalizing on Slammiversary’s success since.

Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson are two of the big additions to the company, and they recently teased the idea of the Bullet Club coming back to Impact, along with a collaboration with NJPW. The Good Brothers were a part of Finn Balor’s original Bullet Club in New Japan, which was later led by AJ Styles and became a faction with mainstream cred.

But you know what would make a Bullet Club in Impact Wrestling even better than a collaboration with NJPW and great creative ideas from a company that values the good old BC? A reunion with AJ Styles himself!

In an interview with Sportskeeda’s Gary Cassidy, Karl Anderson said that the Good Brothers want Styles back in Impact with them and are actively recruiting their former faction-mate in both NJPW and WWE.

"“Ultimately, we’re going to talk AJ Styles into coming back to IMPACT. That’s what we’re doing every single day. We’re texting him and telling him to come back.”"

When Styles was in Impact Wrestling, then known as TNA, he was one of the absolute biggest stars in the business and the face of the company. He’s accomplished a lot in WWE as a two-time world champion, and the first year of his run was by far one of the most memorable “rookie” seasons in the company’s history. (Styles was obviously no rookie!)

So it would be a dream come true for many fans of Impact – and honestly a lot of wrestling fans in general, even those who favor WWE – to see Styles back in the promotion. The company has added a lot of star power in the Motor City Machine Guns, EC3, Eric Young, Deonna Purrazzo, the Good Brothers, Heath, and more, but Styles qualifies as “superstar” power.

It may be tough for Impact to swing a deal and bring in Styles, but if the Phenomenal One wants it, I’m sure it can happen. I mean, if Jon Moxley and Chris Jericho can join AEW from WWE, Styles can surely reunite with Impact Wrestling.
