All In Starts All Out War

All In Starts All Out War

It has been the most successful twelve months of the Bullet Club’s existence. The current incarnation of the faction features the Young Bucks, the greatest entertainer and in-ring performer in the world today – Kenny Omega, Hangman Page, Marty Scurll and of course, second-generation superstar, ‘The American Nightmare’ Cody Rhodes. I won’t dive too much into the past and ruminate on the original Bullet Club, because they’re just not as memorable.

We heard this week that the anxiously anticipated Bullet Club self-funded show, All In will emanate September 1st from the Sears Centre Arena in Chicago, Illinois. The arena holds a maximum capacity of a little under 12,000 and Bullet Club plans to sell at least 10,000 tickets. If this happens, which I believe it will, then All In will be the largest non-WWE show on U.S. soil since the closing of WCW. Coincidentally, these days WWE is lucky if they are able to sell 6,000 tickets for weekly TV shows. In fact, Elimination Chamber 2018 in Vegas last month wasn’t even sold out.

Every long-time wrestling fan knows that when WCW was in operation the wrestling world was hotter than ever. Each week on TV Networks a war of competition ensued between the two giant global powerhouses. Admittedly, WCW took a turn down a beaten path by employing Vince Russo to take over their creative direction and alas, WCW was beaten by Vince McMahon. It was a sad day for professional wrestling and many feel wrestling hasn’t been the same since. But with the All In show, there is a new hope.

Speculations were made this week that Bullet Club members the Young Bucks may appear at WrestleMania 34. Let me just remind all of you that the Bucks have created their own success. They make a small fortune selling merchandise, have their own successful YouTube series, and will be the “producers” of their own supercard. I highly doubt that these wrestling wiz-kids would jeopardize their success with a move to WWE.

All In will be a show to remember. Stephen Amell (TV show Arrow star) will be there as well as potentially C.M. Punk . . . You might even see disgruntled ex-WWE superstars there –  and there are plenty.

Strap on your seat belts as we head towards a new era in professional wrestling and a war to perhaps end all wars. The Club has the Bullets, so watch out WWE, your days could be numbered.
