WWE fan could’ve witness a great moment at WWE TLC.
WWE announced on last week that due to medical concerns Roman Reigns had been removed from the scheduled 3-on-5 TLC match between The Shield and the team of The Miz, Sheamus, Cesaro, Braun Strowman, and Kane at the TLC PPV (pay-per-view) event at the Target Center in Minnesota, Minneapolis on the WWE Network.
Reigns was replaced by WWE Hall of Famer and Raw General Manager Kurt Angle. Also, Bray Wyatt was also been replaced by AJ Styles, who faced Finn Balor. Keep in WWE creative team learned about Reigns and Wyatt not being able to wrestle late in the week and came up with a plethora of replacement options.
Ryan Satin reported on the latest episode of Pro Wrestling Sheet Radio that once Wyatt went down, WWE creative team was pitching ideas for Balor at the event.
One of the ideas was for Balor to team up with Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, and Styles in an Eight-Man Tag Team match. However, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon was against the idea despite the fact that he knows how popular The Bullet Club is in New Japan Pro Wrestling.
It’s been reported that WWE was testing Raw Superstars for the mumps. WWE had apparently originally tested some talent for viral meningitis and discovered that the illness is believed to be the mumps.
The group was formed in May 2013 when Balor, known as Prince Devitt at the time, turned on his partner Ryusuke Taguchi and came together with Anderson and Bad Luck Fale and Tama Tonga. Before the end of the year, the stable was also joined by The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson) and Doc Gallows.
The stable marked a major turning point for the career of Balor who began his ascent out of the junior heavyweight division and into the IWGP Heavyweight Championship picture. Moving along to April of 2014, Balor left NJPW for WWE and was replaced in Bullet Club by AJ Styles, who then left NJPW for WWE in 2016.
The stable continued adding members, most notably Canadian Kenny Omega, who took over its leadership. Styles, Gallows, and Anderson have appeared in WWE as "The Club" in reference to the group.
