SPOILER: Newest member of the Bullet Club confirmed and it’s a big name



A few days back, Bullet Club Japan leader Kenny Omega tweeted that his crew will be ready to announce a ‘Monster’ of a new member soon. To be exact, Omega said that the new member will be a “monster that devours all competition.” Speculation began to run rampant, as it always does when big news like this is announced. Many were led many to believe that the new member would be none other than the ‘Big Hungry’ himself, Ryback, due to the wording of the tweet. Fortunately, for the sanctity of the Bullet Club, this will not be the case. PWInsider has confirmed that the newest member will be…. we’ll let you know a little further down. This is your last chance to leave now so you can enjoy the surprise on December 10th during the New Japan World Tag League Final. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Over the years, since their formation in 2013, many great talents have come and gone in regards to the wildly popular and internationally revered faction known as the Bullet Club. One thing we can all agree on is that the leaders of the group and the members near the top of the pecking order, have always been better for it.

The first leader of the Club, Prince Devitt (Finn Balor), immediately received a monster push after departing for Orlando from Japan. His time spent with NXT, all though a bit too long for my liking, helped him a great deal in becoming an immediate fixture on Monday Night RAW, where he was the 3rd competitor drafted for the brand ahead of the likes of Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar and other superstars. 

AJ Styles underwent a career resurgence as a BC member. The time he spent in NJPW as the leader of the faction likely helped double, maybe even triple his worth to WWE, where he now resides as their World Champion. Then you have Kenny Omega, who has been the “it” wrestler of 2016 since taking over for Styles in early January.

When Styles and Nakamura left NJPW for WWE at the beginning of the year, Omega quickly established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the Heavyweight division. He’d go on to win the G1 Climax later in the year which would ultimately result in him earning a title shot against the company “Ace,” Kazuchika Okada, in the main event of the biggest show of the year on January 4th inside of the Tokyo Dome.

The Young Bucks have become even more popular since joining the Bullet Club and continue to be a fixture for the faction in both Japan and the States on the Ring of Honor side alongside Adam Cole. Cole’s star has only gotten brighter since joining the faction earlier this year at Global Wars. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson (one of the Club’s founding fathers) were also brought to WWE after saying goodbye to the group. 

As seen with nWo in the past, you definitely run the risk of a faction losing its allure with so many members coming and going. This certainly could happen with BC in the future and in the eyes of same fans – it already has. When they announce Cody Rhodes as their newest member on December 10th, I believe it will only strengthen the group and help extend their popularity. 

Rhodes made an unexpected (and vulgar) heel turn last Friday night when he took on Jay Lethal at ROH’s year end Final Battle PPV. Aligning himself with the hottest stable in pro wrestling and potentially even becoming their leader stateside (rumor has it Adam Cole is bound for NXT/WWE when his contract runs out in April) will only add the legacy of the “Grandson of a Plumber,” who still has plenty left in the tank at only 31 years of age. Another thing I think we can all agree on is that he’ll be better served as a key piece of the Bullet Club than he would’ve been as Stardust.
