Speculation surrounding The Bullet Club was rife prior to AJ Styles making his WWE debut at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view back in January.
Following his long-awaited start at the company, the WWE Universe has been ecstatic with the way the company have worked him into weekly programming.
Despite having only made his debut three months ago, WWE has already placed Styles in the most prestigious match possible on the main roster.

In just under two week's time, Roman Reigns will be looking to hold onto his WWE World Heavyweight Championship Title against Styles at the Payback pay-per-view event in Illinois.
38-year-old Styles will feel he has a good chance of taking down the Roman Empire, given the help he received during this week's episode of Monday Night Raw.

Styles' former fellow members of The Bullet Club; Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson, appeared to prove they are on his side ahead of his highly anticipated match at Payback.
In what was their first real introduction to the WWE, AJ Styles was interrupted during an interview backstage by Gallows and Anderson who seemed keen to reunite their friendship with Styles.
Following this, Roman Reigns cut a promo later in the episode with The Phenomenal One promptly cutting him off, only for Gallows and Anderson to consequently attack Reigns in the ring whilst he had his eyes on Styles at the ramp.
This surprise attack came across as intended; a shock to many members of the WWE Universe, with AJ Styles eventually catching up with Reigns backstage to explain he had no idea the two newcomers were going to do anything to hurt Reigns.
The idea of AJ Styles not having any idea about Gallows and Anderson's intentions given their strong bond, however, is something which raises concerns.
It is with this in mind that the idea of Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson turning on AJ Styles in the not too distant future is something which should be considered.
Despite it still being soon into all of their WWE careers, it is clear there is some form of divide between The Bullet Club members.
As such, it should be seen as a likely option that Gallows and Anderson could be the reason AJ Styles loses his match with Reigns at Payback on May 1.
The Bullet Club is in need of a leader and with Finn Balor still the current holder of the NXT Championship, it is unlikely he will make his WWE debut any time soon.
The most obvious option therefore if this Bullet Club allegiance is indeed a swerve by the company, would be for Roman Reigns to take over as the leader of the popular faction.
For the time being, however, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson will surely continue to string AJ Styles along and have him believe that they are still firmly on his side.
It is for reasons such as this that WWE have done right in introducing new and exciting talent to the roster, as they are able to produce intriguing story lines and carry them through to pay-per-view events.
