Bullet Club – Killing the Business #BCINVASION
If you are any sort of wrestling fan you at this point have heard of the Bullet Club, if you haven't for some strange reason, you've at least seen their shirts taking over at any arena WWE comes to lately.
Originally starting in New Japan Pro-Wrestling, the bullet club has always had a few members competing in the North American market but within the last year have really expanding their North American presence. The Young Bucks have been heading this North American expansion and have brought on Cody (don't call him Rhodes), Hangman Page and "The Villian" Marty Scrull to the Bullet Club's North American team. In addition to these 5 their Japan team includes: Bad Luck Fale, Chase Owens, Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa, Yujiro Takahashi and the group's current leader Kenny Omega. The group can mainly been seen in NJPW and ROH, as well as various independents throughout North America.
The Young Bucks started a YouTube show over a year ago, called "Being The Elite," chronicles their travels along the road and provides a lot of tongue-in-cheek jokes at other wrestlers and the industry as they go. The Bullet Club announced this spring they signed a clothing with Hot Topic to start selling their shirts in stores, the first deal of its kind for anyone outside of the WWE. And now their shirts are everywhere you look at wrestling shows, with many Hot Topics constantly running out of stock. The pairing of these two things, plus WWE current flunk have really elevated the Bullet Club and its members to new heights unseen before on the independent circuit.
Yesterday the members of Bullet Club had an appearance at a Hot Topic in Ontario, California and just down the road at the Citizen's Bank Arena was where WWE was hosting RAW for that night. So the group decided to stage a Bullet Club Invasion, rallying fans outside the arena like they were DX in 1998 invading WCW.
There were cheers, chants and speeches but as expected, nothing ended coming from it. It was still a very entertaining piece to follow along with on Twitter and cannot wait to see how they cut the footage for "Being the Elite."
