Matt Hardy has a very good understanding of the world of professional wrestling. Due to his vast knowledge of the industry, Hardy’s opinion when it comes to the business has value to it. He also shared an interesting story about Vince McMahon.
The Bullet Club took the world by storm during the early months of 2013. Founded in NJPW by Finn Balor, it remains one of the most successful factions in the history of professional wrestling.
Even now, fans continue to wear Bully Club t-shirts all over the world. While speaking on “The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy Podcast,” Matt Hardy revealed how Vince McMahon reacted to always seeing fans wearing Bully Club t-shirts during WWE shows.
“When this Bullet Club phenomenon was happening, and they were selling all this merch, I mean, obviously, it was on Vince’s radar,” Hardy said. “There was one point where Vince said, ‘All these shirts, they keep showing up at our shows, these Bullet Club shirts, who are these people? Who are these people? Where are they from?’ ‘It’s this real hot act. They’re from New Japan; sometimes they come over and do Ring of Honor stuff,’ and Vince said, ‘I want them. I want them all.’”… He got a lot of the Bullet Club, but he didn’t get them all.”
Vince McMahon managed to get Adam Cole, AJ Styles, Finn Balor, The Good Brothers, but he was never able to get the remaining members such as Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks and more. Regardless, Bullet Club remains strong and that’s what matters now.
