Did Finn Balor get in trouble for flashing the “too sweet” sign with AJ Styles after their last-minute TLC match or didn’t he? No one in the WWE Universe knows for sure but when Balor then lost in a relative squash match to Kane the next night on Raw, it appeared maybe he’d angered WWE management.
Why would referencing a faction that is so popular be such an issue in the WWE? The speculation is that Vince McMahon and the WWE are trying to distance themselves from any reference to the Bullet Club as much as possible (since it’s not a WWE owned trademark) and that the “too sweet” symbol represents the sign by the original members of that faction — founding members who included Balor and Styles.
Since that day, fans have been buzzing about whether or not they’d get to see a reunion of sorts between Styles and Balor and potentially the other founding members of the group, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows. In a recent interview with Ringside Collectibles at Ringside Fest 2017, Balor didn’t shy away from answering questions about a possible faction and who he’d select to lead if he were ever in one.
Balor quickly acknowledged that he would select his closest friend in WWE, Karl Anderson. From there, he’d include who he considers being the most underrated big man in the game, Luke Gallows. Somewhat surprisingly, he also included NXT tag team The Authors of Pain. Balor then joked that no one, including Kane (whom he lost the squash match to), would mess with him then.
Did Balor’s joke about Kane suggest that he knew his loss was a punishment? Or, was he having a good time joking about losing the next night after winning a huge match against Styles? Either way, fans would likely love to see Balor lead a faction and he appears to have given it some real and genuine consideration.
