AEW hasn’t seen any official Bullet Club faction action, but that changed when Juice Robinson and Jay White showed up. Bullet Club Gold is now a thing in AEW, and the Gunns already joined them. It seems that move was not noticed in the right way back in NJPW.
Throughout the history of the Bullet Club, the faction has frequently spawned various sub-groups that have extended their influence across multiple wrestling promotions. Apparently, Clark Connors is not a fan of this new Bullet Club branch.
Right now, one of the prominent sub-groups within the Bullet Club, known as Bullet Club Gold, holds a significant position in AEW. This faction comprises of Jay White, Juice Robinson, and Austin & Colten Gunn.
In an exclusive interview with Fightful Select, Clark Connors didn’t hold back in his criticism of Jay White and Juice Robinson, suggesting that they are making concerted efforts to maintain their relevance within the AEW landscape.
I think, that one in particular, is Jay White doing everything he can to stay relevant going over to a new company. Same with Juice. Doing whatever they can to stay in the spotlight, taking up those Gunn boys, doing whatever that is. I don’t watch a lot of it, to tell you the truth. I think it’s kind of phony bologna bullshit, to tell you the truth. The only real Bullet Club is the one that’s in New Japan and it’s helmed by David Finlay. That’s the reason for the Bullet Club, the idea of the Bullet Club is pissed off foreigners who wanted to take over and make a mark for themselves in Japan and that’s exactly what we, the War Dogs, are.”
We will have to see if the Bullet Club from NJPW and Bullet Club Gold ever collide. Since we have to wait another year for Forbidden Door, only time will tell what happens while we wait.
Jay White and Juice Robinson are certainly taking a lot of spotlight in AEW. Their current war with Kenny Omega could result in a very fun match or two down the line as well. Obviously, their time is only beginning in AEW.
