At NJPW’s King Of Pro-Wrestling show the Bullet Club comprised of Bad Luck Fale, Doc Gallows, Karl Anderosn, Tama Tonga, The Young Bucks, Yujiro Takahashi and AJ Styles were all set to wrestle. Some in tag matches and others defending their titles.
AJ Styles defended his IWGP Heavyweight Championship and Takahashi as well defended his NEVER Openweight Championship. Setting up small chance that some how the Bullet Club would lose it’s two top single titles.
While The Young Bucks challenged the Time Splitters, the team of Alex Shelley and Kushida for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship. However it was a three way match for the titles as Forever Hooligans of Alex Koslov and Rocky Romero were also involved. But sadly the hottest tag team in the business today just couldn’t pull off the victory and failed to win.
As for Bad Luck Fale, Doc Dallows, Karl Anderson and Tama Tonga they were set to face off against Kota Ibushi, Togi Makabe, Tomoaki Honma, Yuji Nagata in a eight man tag match. Yes, that’s former WCW superstar Yuji Nagata. And well, his WCW fame was just too much for the Bullet Club members as they lost the opening match of the night.
This just left the two champions left to over come victory and well, we previously reported at AJ Styles lost the IWGP Heavyweight Championshp to Hiroshi Tanahashi. So this ultimately just left Takahashi and his NEVER Openweight Championship match against Tomohiro Ishii.
Ishii, who was described as Dave Meltzer as the “probably [one of the] most underrated guys in the business.” Ishii was looking to recapture the title for the second time and after a nearly 18 minute match he was successful. Thus sending another Bullet Club member to lose.
As it would finally end the Bullet Club had a total of 4 matches at King Of Pro-Wrestling and ended up losing each and every one of them. Going 0 and 4. What does this mean for the Bullet Club? Will they blame each other or will they blame the returning Jeff Jarrett?
