Rumors? No way. The WWE have all but confirmed that they have indeed signed some of the biggest wrestling stars on the planet via social media and their very on corporate website. In a move that we called quite possibly the biggest talent coup of the WWE’s modern era, World Wrestling Entertainment have reportedly signed IWGP Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and Bullet Club members AJ Styles, Machine Gun Karl Anderson, Doc Gallows and Toma Tonga.
Instead of shying away from dirt sheet rumors, the WWE is stroking the flames of the rumors and rolling out the red carpet for the world-renown stars. NXT Champion Finn Balor, Sasha Banks, Asuka, Samoa Joe, Hulk Hogan, Jim Ross and more have already tweeted greetings and feelings on the impending arrivals of the wrestlers.

If that isn’t enough to add some fuel to the fire, the WWE wrote a story on their website that mentions the rumors about an NJPW invasion while not confirming or denying that the rumors with true. In addition to that, the WWE tweeted AJ Styles rarely-seen WWE debut on an episode of the now-defunct show “Jakked,” in which he took on Hurricane Helms.
AJ Styles is rumored to be a participant in the 2016 WWE Royal Rumble taking place on January 24th at Orlando’s Amway Center, while Nakamura’s debut might take a bit longer since he is New Japan Pro Wrestling’s current IWGP Intercontinental Champion.
