Following a match at NJPW Wrestle Grand Slam night one, SHO was revealed to be the latest addition to the Bullet Club faction.
At the event, SHO faced YOH in singles action, following the Roppongi 3K tag team’s split last month. Ultimately, SHO was victorious, forcing YOH to submit.
After the bout, EVIL, Yujiro Takahashi and Dick Togo congratulated SHO, presenting him with Bullet Club House of Torture sub-faction shirt.
NJPW World shared the moment on Twitter:

Bullet Club member Tama Tonga seems optimistic about the future of the group, retweeting the gif, saying:
Before SHO, IMPACT’s Chris Bey was the latest star to join the faction, aligning with Jay White in July.
On tomorrow’s Wrestle Grand Slam show, Taiji Ishimori and El Phantasmo of Bullet Club will defend their IWGP Jr Heavyweight Tag Team Championship against El Desperado and Yoshinobu Kanemaru.
Also at the event, EVIL will challenge Shingo Takagi for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship.
