Bullet Club IMPLODES!

Bullet Club IMPLODES!

It’s been a rocky year for the Bullet Club with tensions riding higher than Rob Van Dam on his weekend off. There has been a supposed war of the leaders between Kenny Omega and Cody, which flared up at New Year’s Dash and turned into a beat down at New Beginning in Sapporo. Omega was saved by his Golden Lovers tag team partner Kota Ibushi, which led many to speculate Bullet Club was heading for a NWO Hollywood and NWO Wolfpac split with Omega leading one team and Cody the other. Ring of Honor even announced that Cody vs. Omega will take place at Supercard of Honor this coming April, the day before WrestleMania 34.

Things got even more heated in the group at the first night of New Honor Rising over the weekend, where Cody, Marty Scurll and Hangman Page defeated The Golden Lovers and Chase Owens. After the match Omega and Cody continued their brawl, and Cody cut a promo where he announced, “Bullet Club is fine. And I’ll add one more thing. Bullet Club is mine.” On the second night, where The Golden Lovers took on Cody and Scurll, Cody wore the word “LEADER” on his gear and even kissed Kota Ibushi towards the end of the match, which he later told Kevin Kelly and Don Callis was all for the “look on Kenny’s face”.


During the post-show press conference in response to Cody’s mind-games, Kenny said that Cody had embarrassed himself and went so far as to call Cody a cast-off of a certain company. “This sounds like an evil project of a WWE reject. That’s what that sounds like.”

The question remains where The Young Bucks fit in all of this. We had previously seen that The Bucks welcomed the Golden Lovers into their dressing room following New Beginning on Being The Elite, but things aren’t quite so hunky dory.


At the conclusion of the second night of Honor Rising, Omega cut a promo say that not only was this the best weekend of his life but The Golden Lovers are the best tag team in the world. This of course brought out The Young Bucks who disagreed, and announced they were moving into the heavyweight division and challenged them to a match. It was officially announced by New Japan that the two teams will square off at Strong Style Evolved on March 25th – a card that will also see Hangman Page challenge for Jay White’s IWGP United States Championship and Jushin “Thunder” Liger face off against Rey Mysterio, and is rumoured to feature Chris Jericho vs. Tetsuya Naito.

Strong Style Evolved made headlines earlier this month when the show sold out it’s 5,000 seats in just twenty minutes – and that would have been quicker had the ticket systems not crashed due to demand. Matt Jackson channelled his inner Brody tweeting, “We should’ve ran a bigger building.”
