For the past few weeks rumors have been circulating about NJPW talent AJ Styles, Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows leaving the promotion and joining the WWE. As we have reported many times, Styles is likely to debut at tonight’s WWE Royal Rumble while Anderson and Gallows will be there in a few months and Shinsuke Nakamura is coming in February at some point.
At last night’s Ring of Honor live event in Duluth Georgia, Styles made his last appearance for ROH. He wasn’t in a match. It was just a chance for him to say goodbye. The Bullet Club (Styles, Anderson, Gallows and The Young Bucks) stood in the middle of the ring hugging and “too sweeting” each other, ala The Kliq curtain call at the Madison Square Garden May 1996.
Matt Jackson of the Young Bucks posted the following image and video on his Twitter account with the hashtags #bulletclub and #curtaincall.
Ski’s Take – Are we, the wrestling fans (I will not use the term IWC as it brings with it too much negativity in my opinion) reading too much this? Or is this really The Bullet Club saying goodbye to AJ and wishing him well on the next leg of his adventures? We’re pretty sure AJ is at the Royal Rumble, but we won’t know for sure until….maybe 8pm Eastern tonight or later in the evening to be more specific. Tune in!
