The history of Finn Balor, Karl Anderson, and Luke Gallows go back a number of years. Particularly, during their time competing for New Japan Pro Wrestling, as Balor and Anderson were two of the Founding Fathers of the notorious Bullet Club stable. Gallows would join shortly after, and form a team with Anderson. As Guns and Gallows, the team would win the IWGP Tag Team Championships on three occasions. During their time on Raw, they have one reign as the tag team champions of the brand.
While their resume is indeed impressive, the team has been devoid of a clear direction regarding their current career path. Unfortunately, the domination that came with the team upon their debut has faded, and interest from the fans has significantly decreased due to the poor booking from the creative team.
On the previous episode of Raw, Anderson and Gallows joined former stablemate Finn Balor to compete against Elias and the Miztourage. The trio looked as if there was not much time lost, as they defeated The Drifter, Curtis Axel, and Bo Dallas. You can check out a snippet of the match below.
Excited about the reunion, WWE posted that Balor, Anderson, and Gallows are back together. During the backstage interview following their win, they were referred to as the “former best friends from Japan.” However, there was a major slip-up in WWE’s social media promotion.
Pro Wrestling Sheet reported a captured screenshot of the WWE United Kingdom Facebook page, originally captioning the reunion, “The boys are back in town! Monday Night Raw saw the debut of The Bullet Club in the WWE and it was Too Sweet!” This would quickly be changed to The Balor Club.
Of course, fans had much to say on social media about this slip-up, particularly since WWE sent a cease and desist letter to NJPW over the “Too Sweet” gesture this past September.
