Bullet Club makes surprise WWE debut on Monday Night Raw

The New Day announced an eight-team tournament to decide the No. 1 contender for their tag titles Monday night on Raw, but new contenders emerged and made a long-awaited debut to beat up the Usos. Luke "Doc" Gallows and Karl Anderson, members of the Bullet Club stable that dominated in New Japan Pro Wrestling, were two of the four NJPW stars to leave Japan earlier this year (along with Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles), and they’ve finally arrived in WWE. 

Anderson comes to WWE as a four-time IWGP tag team champion, and has spent the past eight years wrestling for NJPW and Ring of Honor. Gallows is beginning his second stint with WWE. He wrestled for years as Festus, and later became a member of CM Punk’s Straight Edge Society as Luke Gallows. 

Gallows and Anderson making their debut means that NXT star Finn Balor will likely make the jump soon as well. Balor, another former Bullet Club member in Japan, is expected to join Gallows and Anderson to form the "Balor Club" in WWE. Balor teased the team’s arrival last week during an NXT house show when he held up a sign made by a fan.
