must go it alone in the WWE. Following the release of Styles’
ex-Bullet Club partners, the “Phenomenal One” spoke during a
gaming stream about feeling “hurt” over the duo’s departure.
“The only way I can explain it is that these guys are my family and I couldn’t take care of my little brothers,” Styles explained. “I didn’t manage to do that and I feel responsible for them being released. It’s devastating.”
