Anderson and his tag team partner, Doc Gallows, who is also rumored to be signing with WWE as well, are advertised for NJPW and ROH events through March. Gallows would be cleared to sign with WWE because he doesn’t have an exclusive contract (pay-per-appearance only) with NJPW or ROH although the possibility of him skipping those events that he is advertised for are very slim. He was in Pittsburgh last week to do medical testing for WWE. Anderson does have an exclusive deal with both NJPW and ROH so he could not appear at the Rumble.
It should be noted that WWE cannot use the name “Bullet Club” because NJPW has the rights to the name. Thus, the reason that WWE recently filed for “Balor Club” as a trademark.
