Report: AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows headed to WWE



naka-styles-wweBullet Club members A.J. Styles, Karl Anderson, Doc Gallows and ‘Strong Style’ superstar Shinsuke Nakamura may have wrestled their last matches for New Japan Pro Wrestling, respectively, earlier today at Wrestle Kingdom 10.

According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline, all four men are heading to WWE where they will all likely begin with NXT which has become the norm for new signees.

According to the report, all four men told Gedo (the booker for NJPW) that they were “finishing up” with the company. Anderson and Gallows would go on to drop their titles on the night while Styles would lose to Nakamura in a match for the IWGP Intercontinental championship.

The contracts for Anderson, Gallows and Nakamura all expire at the end of this month; Styles has been working without a contract.

The signings make sense with WWE looking to bolster their roster with NXT becoming a full time touring brand in 2016. In Nakamura and Styles you have two aging megastars who have never looked better than they do right now. Styles has gone through a career resurgence since joining NJPW and Nakamura has been a major fan favorite for over a minute now. Anderson was solid gold as the mouthpiece for the Bullet Club faction, Gallows has the size that WWE loves and experience to go along with it.

Stay tuned for more on this situation as it develops throughout the coming days.
