WWE: What Will It Take To Get The Current Members Of Bullet Club?
Could The Bullet Club be WWE bound? It’s a question every wrestling fan wants to know. With the recent Finn Balor/ A.J. Styles match, many are going to speculate whether names like Kenny Omega, Young Bucks, Marty Scurll, Hangman Page, and even a return of Cody Rhodes is in the cards.
Vince McMahon probably hates that the Bullet Club is the most popular faction in wrestling. The shirts, sold at Hot Topic and Pro Wrestling Tees, are among the best-selling merchandise at both stores. Hardcore wrestling marks have gravitated away from WWE in favor of New Japan, ROH, and other indie promotions. It’s obvious by just the merchandise sales alone.
The indie scene is full of Bullet Club shirts and merch, and it’s starting to pop up at WWE events as well. Ring of Honor is home to the Bullet Club in America and the promotion is thriving because of it. The Bullet Club floods New Japan and Defiant Wrestling. These are two of the top promotions outside of the USA.
What other option does the WWE have but to bring the Bullet Club into the company? Even if they wanted to, how do they get them to sign? It’s obvious guys like Kenny Omega who has made a living in Japan and is probably very comfortable with his current situation. The Young Bucks, Cody, Page, Scurll, they’ve got a nice setup in Ring of Honor, and are among the top wrestlers in the world.
Is money the real motivation with wrestlers? If so, McMahon would probably pony up the cash for any of these world-renowned stars, even for a returning Cody, who some may say is the most popular wrestler in America outside of the WWE. Of course, the booking team would need to improve for any consideration of the top indie guys on the roster.
We know McMahon and the WWE have tried to recreate the Bullet Club with Styles, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson, but it will never have the same effect. As long as WWE fights the Bullet Club, the more popular the faction gets. And with the wrestlers outside of the WWE being so popular, Vince McMahon is finding it tough to compete.
Will we see Bullet Club in WWE? Maybe. If you’re Omega, Young Bucks, Cody, Scurll, or Page, you ride the wave as long as you can. Finn Balor, A.J. Styles, Gallows and Anderson, and Adam Cole have all made the jump. Although, Bullet Club has never been more successful than it is now. A move to WWE isn’t needed at this time.
