A week ago on Monday Night Raw, Finn Balor, Karl Anderson, and Luke Gallows joined forces for the first time in the WWE as The Balor Club, the first time the trio has joined forces since they together in NJPW.

Balor, Anderson, and Gallows joined forces on the first Raw of 2018 and successfully defeated Bo Dallas, Curtis Axel, and Elias in a six-man tag match. This past week on the show, they teamed up once more, defeating the team of the Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan and the Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns in another six-man tag.

This was the first time The Demon King had teamed up with Gallows and Anderson since their time before the WWE in NJPW as part of The Bullet Club. However, Gallows and Anderson had teamed up previously with another former Bullet Club member in the form of AJ Styles when they first arrived in WWE in 2016.

The Phenomenal One teamed up with Gallows and Anderson as The Club from May 2016 until they were broken up thanks to the WWE Draft when Gallows and Anderson were drafted to Raw while Styles was drafted to SmackDown. They wrestled their last match together as a trio in July 2016 at Battleground in a loss to John Cena, Enzo Amore, and Big Cass.

Recently, Styles spoke to IGN and gave his reaction to the Balor Club, and he also revealed the chances of him joining up with the trio in the future. The WWE Champion didn't feel too bothered by the reunion since he's doing his own thing on SmackDown while the trio is on Raw.

He said: "It is what it is, I guess, as far as the way things are supposed to happen. Even though I had my own reunion with them shortly after I arrived, and its in the story, I'm not even with those guys right now. They're on RAW and I'm on SmackDown and I'm kind of doing my own thing by myself.

"But those three guys being together is something special because, truth be told, those were the three guys who were originally together."


When Styles was asked if he would be joining up with the group in the future, he said he would like to at some point, but he doesn't know if it's going to happen. 

"If I could look into the future or try to predict things. I'd like to think that maybe we can all be together doing something. At some point. But you never know where things are going to lead, but right now I'm very interested in what I'm seeing."

It would be great to see Styles, Balor, Gallows, and Anderson all part of the same faction in the WWE in the near future, as perhaps this could lead to them all dominating in the WWE, before inevitably coming into conflict with one another.


It could lead to The Demon King and The Phenomenal One having another match against one another, just like they did at TLC in 2017.
