AJ Styles: The Phenomenal one will team up with The Club for one last ride at WWE’s tour to Japan next month.
WWE will embark on their annual Japanese tour next week. The dates will obviously feature their Japanese superstars. There are also some big names for the events such as AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman, Becky Lynch and many more.
The event will also see the in-ring return of Alexa Bliss who was pulled out of the Money in the Bank Ladder match for medical reasons. She has technically had a match since in a tag team match but wasn’t tagged in.
The most interesting aspect of the card is the reunion of ‘The Club’. AJ Styles, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows were all part of the famous Bullet Club back when they were in NJPW. All three of them made the move to WWE around the same time. WWE grouped the three veterans together and dubbed them ‘The Club’.
While AJ Styles has since reached new heights by becoming the WWE Champion twice, Gallows and Anderson have floundered in the Tag Team division. This is one of the reasons why the duo plan to exit WWE when their current deals expire in September. AJ Styles has also revealed that his current contract with the WWE is the last contract of his career. Therefore, their match at Japan could probably be the last time the fans will get to see the three of them in a ring together.
The advertised matches for the Japan tour are:
- Seth Rollins vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the Universal championship
- Becky Lynch vs. Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s title
- AJ Styles, Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows vs. Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin & Bobby Lashley
- Samoa Joe vs. Ricochet vs. Cesaro
- Braun Strowman vs. Robert Roode
- The IIconics vs. Kabuki Warriors for the WWE Women’s Tag Team championship
- Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins vs. The Revival for the Raw Tag Team titles
- Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman & AJ Styles vs. Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin & Bobby Lashley
- Becky Lynch vs. Asuka vs. Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s championship
- Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Robert Roode
- Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins vs. The Revival vs. Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows for the Raw Tag Team titles
- Ricochet vs. Cesaro
The card, as always, remains subject to change.
