The Bullet Club is a legendary stable in pro wrestling at this point, but their members have changed a lot over the years. Now, it appears that NJPW has a different idea about who they place in that faction.
Bullet Club Gold is making waves in AEW as Jay White and Juice Robinson do their thing. Over in NJPW, the original Bullet Club stable has a lot of new faces, and there’s a reason for that.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that NJPW is taking younger wrestlers and giving them the Bullet Club moniker to elevate them at this point.
So basically they are taking a crew of younger wrestlers they have been training for years and using the Bullet Club name and group to elevate them from prelim guys to people that are to be taken seriously as stars.
It was also noted that, “The next major show is 6/9, called All Together Again, a joint show at Sumo Hall in Tokyo at 4:30 a.m. Eastern time. It’s the joint show with All Japan and NOAH.”
We will have to see what happens with the Bullet Club in the months and years to come. The stable still draws attention, so it’s not likely that NJPW will give up on that property yet. So, fans should expect some new members around to help elevate them and keep things fresh.
