Finn Balor on which WWE Superstars he would choose to create a new Bullet Club. The 2-time NXT Champion had a few names ready.
Finn Balor was recently crowned NXT Champion. This is his 2nd stint with the top title on the Black and Gold brand. This makes him only the 3rd person since Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura do so. Apart from being the top guy in NXT and the WWE, Balor also has a legacy in Japan.
During his time with New Japan Pro Wrestling, Balor formed the Bullet Club alongside Karl Anderson, Bad Luck Fale, and Tama Tonga. BC still exists with Tonga and Fale still a part of the group, but the faction has seen several changes across these years.

During a recent interview with ViBe and Wrestling, the former Bullet Clun leader was asked which WWE Stars would he recruit if he were to recreate the Bullet Club. Balor hinted that the first people he would have named were Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows if they were still in the promotion.
He then named AJ Styles, a former Bullet Club leader himself and Adam Cole, another former Bullet Club member and the person he beat to become NXT Champion, as the two guys he would have in his new Bullet Club.
“Well, to be honest I would have to tell you that without a doubt I would have chosen two Superstars who left the company just a month ago,” Balor said. “This is how things work and the nature of the business, but if you were to build a new Bullet Club, AJ Styles and Adam Cole would be the two people. We have a lot of history between us, we have a similar past. We have all been leaders of the Bullet Club, so getting together would be very special.”

Interestingly, Styles was asked a similar question a few days back and he chose the exact same members.
“Well certainly, Finn is one of those guys,” Styles told comicbook.com. “I’d have to throw Adam Cole in there as well. It’s hard to know which guys I’d put in there; that’s a tough question. It’s not just what guys would get along, it’s what guys you have stuff in common with. With Gallows and Anderson not there, that makes it really tough for me. I don’t know who else.”
During the same interview, Styles reiterated that he was never the leader of Bullet Club and Finn Balor was the one true leader of the faction.
Every time we talk about the Bullet Club, I have to say that I’m not the leader and never was…Apparently, people don’t want to hear that. Finn Balor was the guy that came up with the name for the group. So, if there’s a true leader, it has to be him. Not only did he come up with the name, he was the guy that was first in charge.”
