Back in 2012, Bushido Road purchased New Japan and put it under their corporate umbrella. It turned out to be a wise investment, as company president Takaaki Kidani has revealed that revenue has doubled in that time. That is good news for guys like AJ Styles, Young Bucks, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows and others because it means that the company will be able to continue to use them.

Earlier today, Jeff Jarrett revealed a couple of names that will be joining GFW. He managed to sign one of the most popular international acts in the Bullet Club. Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows are going to be a regular part of the roster. They are former IWGP tag team champions in New Japan. In the story line, Jarrett is actually a stablemate of Anderson and Gallows, so it will be interesting to see if that plays out in Global Force Wrestling.

During their first reign, the Bullet Club held the IWGP Tag Team Championship for an entire year. Their second reign wasn't nearly as successful. Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows were defeated by Matt Taven and Mike Bennett, who were accompanied by the lovely Maria Kanellis at Invasion Attack 2015 over the weekend. The ROH stars are making quite a name for themselves in New Japan and could opt to work more there than in the United States.

As some of you may already know, WWE is targeting the Bullet Club and trying to legally prevent them from doing their hand gesture. It looks like the gang is going to be just as defiant in real life as their characters are in New Japan. Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson already have heat with the company, so they have no issues defying them. Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows are expected to continue using the hand sign as well.

WWE is about to take on the Bullet Club, but it is not in the way that fans would hope for it to be. A pending legal issue is on the way, as the corporation has filed for trademark rights to the nWo hand gesture that AJ Styles, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, Nick Jackson and Matt Jackson have made popular again. They state that they are doing it for merchandising reasons, but some believe they are just hurting the popular New Japan stable.

For those of you that watched the ROH anniversary show, you already know that Luke Gallows was not there. It was a noticeable absence since Karl Anderson had to work the triple threat tag team match by himself. Officials opted to not utilize a replacement since it enabled them to have Anderson doing the job without looking weak. Gallows was forced to miss the event because he was snowed in at the airport in Detroit on Sunday night.
