Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows – The Bullet Club – are scheduled to be at this week’s WWE TV Tapings, PWInsider.com has confirmed with multiple sources. It’s expected they will be at Wrestlemania, at least backstage at the event, as well.

The pair were expected to debut on the main WWE roster, bypassing NXT, in late March/early April. .

The belief is that the team will be using The Balor Club name.

The word making the rounds within WWE is that John Cena is just about ready to return to the ring and is expected to be cleared anytime, if he hasn’t been cleared already. He’s absolutely expected to appear in some form at Wrestlemania this weekend.

Cena has been out of action since tearing a rotator cuff in December and undergoing surgery. He’s been intensely rehabbing the injury since.

WWE® NETWORK TO PREMIERE HOLY FOLEY THIS AUGUST

Docu-Series Produced by Trooper Entertainment in association with Lionsgate

STAMFORD, Conn., March 31, 2016 – WWE Network continues to add to its robust slate of original programming with the newly green-lit show, Holy Foley, which will offer viewers a comedic, behind-the-scenes look into the life of WWE Hall of Famer, husband and father Mick Foley and his unique relationship with his daughter Noelle. Produced by Trooper Entertainment in association with Lionsgate, this 10-episode, 30-minute family reality series is slated to premiere in August 2016.

“I am excited to give fans a behind-the-scenes look into the Foley family life,” said Mick Foley. “Holy Foley will be filled with surprises, lots of drama and moments that will make you laugh out loud.”

“It’s an honor to be working with WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, and I’m very happy to be collaborating with WWE on this series,” said Executive Producer Dave Caplan.

“As a leader in supplying premium content to digital platforms, we are very pleased to once again partner with WWE and bring this fun family series to WWE Network,” said Jennifer O’Connell, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Lionsgate Television. “Holy Foley is an exciting way to give the WWE Universe a unique behind-the-scenes look into the Foley family.”

Show Synopsis:

At the Foley household on suburban Long Island, Mick Foley simply sees himself as a stand-up comedian and Santa-loving dad to his family of five, including wife Colette, sons Dewey, Mickey and Hughie, and daughter Noelle, with whom he shares a picture-perfect, father-daughter relationship.

However, unbeknownst to Mick, Noelle has decided she wants to follow in her father’s footsteps, and has been secretly training to join WWE. Just when Mick thought he was out of the ring, Noelle is leading the charge to pull him back in.

As if Noelle’s aspirations weren’t enough, Dewey, Mick’s oldest son, recently landed his dream job as a writer’s assistant on the WWE creative team.

In Holy Foley, real-life antics and laugh-out-loud moments will unfold as cameras follow two generations of Foleys trying to make it in life – and at WWE.

Regal was observed behind the curtains at EVOLVE the next night, too, scouting talent. According to EVOLVE, many members of its roster are petitioning to be included in the qualifying matches, the dates and locations of which have not yet been made public.
