The Grapevine (1/28/16): Catching Bullets



Good morning everyone, and welcome to the Grapevine! This is our daily post rounding up all the interesting rumors from the wild, wild world of pro wrestling that you may have missed over the evening.

After the titanic news of Shinsuke Nakamura debuting at TakeOver: Dallas (watch out for the NXT Grapevine later today), we have news on the rest of the Bullet Club:



  • It seems like Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows are headed straight for the main roster. It was previously rumored that they'd be headed to NXT, possibly to support Finn Balor in a Balor Club. They have not signed deals yet, but it seems to be a sure thing that those deals would be for the main show. (Source: PWInsider)

We say: Seems like a damned fine idea, seeing as the New Day has already run out of challengers in their division. Between Shinsuke coming to NXT and this, we can't wait!


  • Regarding Triple H's involvement in EVOLVE, apparently the two sides are still talking and negotiating as to what the partnership will be. Triple H was present backstage at the last EVOLVE shows (where William Regal and American Alpha were scheduled to appear), and EVOLVE representatives were present at Royal Rumble. Triple H's visit apparently drove morale up at the EVOLVE locker room. (Source: PWInsider)

We say: We're also pretty excited for this, but what's taking them so long? Even though we're already getting some of the talent-sharing, we're just afraid that the more this drags, the less likely it happens for real.


  • Lana apparently has some more backstage heat. This was what led to the Rock's line about her last Monday on RAW. There are no details disclosed, but it was just something she said that got people talking about her. (Source: Wrestling Observer Radio)

We say: We get it, you guys don't like her. If this is indeed true and it was something that people are making a bigger deal of, maybe it's time to start toning down the pettiness?

What do you think? Are you excited for the Bullet Club turning up at the main roster? Who from EVOLVE do you want to see on NXT, and vice versa? Let us know what you think in the comments!
