Is The Balor Club getting a real push?

Balor Club

Balor Club is the trio of Finn Balor, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson; who joined forces for the first time in the WWE. After the former Universal Champion finally revealed the group that is popular worldwide as The Bullet Club; will go under “The Balor Club” name in WWE.

Is the Reunion a Good Thing or a Bad Thing?

Since the demon king debuted on the main roster in 2016, fans have had high hopes for Finn; who was once reportedly in line for a Survivor Series or Royal Rumble match against Brock Lesnar. This was before WWE apparently “soured” on the idea of a potential feud between the two. We’d later find out why as Sports Illustrated reported that Vince McMahon felt Balor was too “bland” to be featured in such a high-profile match against “The Beast.”

That, of course, would explain the often baffling booking of Balor, who hasn’t done much of note since returning on the post-WrestleMania 33 edition of Raw last year. His two “biggest” feuds have come against Elias and Bray Wyatt, the latter of which was a complete disaster, and any momentum he’s picked up from a landmark major victory (like against AJ Styles at WWE TLC) has been immediately wasted, like it was when his win over Styles was instantly followed up by a squash match loss to Kane.

Some may think that his recent reunion with Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows as The Club can change that; but the way Raw creative team presents Gallows and Anderson, as a lower card comedy act for the last year or so, The Club reunion is probably just a way to please diehard fans (and possibly play off all the recent publicity for New Japan Pro-Wrestling) without truly elevating any of these three stars.

The Balor Club push is just a trick!

If you watched Raw, you probably notice that the trio is a complete afterthought in the main event segment, winning the match but ultimately used as a pawn to further Jason Jordan’s push and the return of The Miz.

But hoping Finn’s heel turn could seal the deal for him at the top of the food chain. And DX (mostly Triple H) acknowledging the stable on Raw25; it seems that 2018 will be the year for a Balor Club Invasion.

TSJ Writer’s View: The Balor Club’s push,

I didn’t like the way WWE did with the reunion between Finn & the Good Brothers, but that’s in the past now. For the future push, creative needs to turn them heel, but not the jobber type heel; more like a strong heel faction. And the faction should spread to SmackDown Live too; while fans hope for Aj Styles to be in it, but rather reveals that it’s Daniel Bryan, Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn who are in the Balor Club. This will create a better buzz and better storylines in both brands.

Making something unexpected is much more entertaining than something that is already predictable. Well, that’s my view! Leave your thoughts on how to push the stable in the comment below.
