WWE Performance Center head coach Matt Bloom recently spoke with WWE.com about the rumors of WWE signing AJ Styles, Doc Gallows, Karl Anderson, and Shinsuke Nakamura. Here are the highlights.
On how the group was created:
“I’m friends with most of those guys. The Bullet Club came to fruition after I left. It’s something that Finn Bálor came up with one night while hanging with his buddies. They all kind of made fun of him about it, thinking it would never take off.”
On the group:
It’s about time. WWE is the largest platform in the world to do what those guys love to do. They deserve to be here because they paid their dues, they worked really hard, and they made names for themselves. The best of the best come here to flourish. They’re gonna take all those years of experience, hard work and dedication, and now show it to the world on an even grander scale.
On the group’s popularity:
“That’s a faction that really helped New Japan become global, because everywhere you look, there are Bullet Club shirts at U.S. sporting events and U.S. wrestling events. It just took off. It’s all the brainchild of Finn Bálor and Karl Anderson.”
