A top NJPW star has commented on Bullet Club Gold.
After signing with All Elite Wrestling in April, Switchblade Jay White aligned himself with Juice Robinson to form Bullet Club Gold.
On the June 7 edition of AEW Dynamite, former AEW World Tag Team Champions Austin and Colten Gunn helped White defeat Ricky Starks in the main event.
On the New Japan Pro Wrestling side, Bullet Club has taken on a whole new look with David Finlay at the helm since White’s departure. Now known as Bullet Club War Dogs, Clark Connors, Alex Coughlin, Dan Moloney and Gabriel Kidd have joined Finlay’s group.
Speaking with Marie Shadows on the Squared Circle Podcast, Connors stated that he is in the real Bullet Club. Stating that White and Robinson couldn’t cut it in New Japan so they went to AEW, Connors said:
“I mean the fact that it’s called BULLET CLUB Gold means it’s not the original. It’s some knockoff of something. How they got the rights to — how they’re using BULLET CLUB? I don’t know. I think it’s bulls**t.”
“I think it’s an offense to what BULLET CLUB is and people might say, well, they’ve been in BULLET CLUB longer than you. It’s like, no, they have not.”
“I’m in the real BULLET CLUB, they are not. They’re just making up their own thing over there and good for Jay White, that’s all I gotta say. Good for Juice Robinson.”
“They couldn’t cut it in New Japan Pro-Wrestling so they had to go over to AEW and that’s it. AEW consistently has worse wrestlers than New Japan Pro-Wrestling.”
Clark Connors continued on to credit NJPW for having the best pro wrestlers in the world, saying:
“As much as I don’t love the company as it is, we have the best pro wrestlers in the world and BULLET CLUB’s the top faction in that company and therefore, I am one of the best pro wrestlers in the world.”
“Better than Jay White, better than Juice Robinson. I just never had the chance to prove it and here it is, my chance is coming. So if they want any of the smoke and I just saw that they brought in ‘The Ass Kids’, good God, please.”
“All four of them versus any four of the War Dogs, you kidding me? We’re gonna destroy them, mop the floor with them and like I said, Jay’s a great leader and Juice is a veteran but these two kids, these goofballs, good for them. I don’t know what the hell they’re doing but it isn’t BULLET CLUB.”
AEW and NJPW will present Forbidden Door on Sunday, June 25 from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The two companies have already announced that Kazuchika Okada will face Bryan Danielson and Kenny Omega will defend the IWGP United States Championship against Will Ospreay in a Wrestle Kingdom 17 rematch.
