In a surprising twist of events, SHO was recruited as the newest Bullet Club member on the first night of the NJPW Wrestle Grand Slam.
After his hard-fought victory against former tag team partner YOH in a special one-on-one match, SHO was greeted in the ring by members of the above group. People like EVIL, Dick Togo and Yujiro Takahashi made their way to the square circle and offered him a Bullet Club T-shirt.
SHO’s expression said it all, as he wasted no time receiving the t-shirt and finally putting it on to confirm his inclusion in the popular faction.
In the run-up to the Wrestle Grand Slam, SHO turned his back on tag team partner YOH.
As Roppongi 3K, the duo had won the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championships five times.
Bullet Club now has one of the largest faction lineups in all of pro wrestling
The Bullet Club now has a total of 16 members. The OGs Bad Luck Fale and Tama Tonga are still part of the group. While Jay White still leads from the front as NEVER Openweight Champion.
After recently showing up at IMPACT Wrestling, White recruited Chris Bey for the faction. The former IMPACT X-Division Champion will soon be joining the rest of the Bullet Club on NJPW Strong.
While the majority of the faction’s members are currently in the US, in Japan people like EVIL and Dick Togo have founded the House of Torture, a new sub-group.
SHO is currently part of the House of Torture and it remains to be seen how the Bullet Club will evolve with so many members in its lineup.
