Ace Austin Joins Bullet Club At NJPW Best Of The Super Juniors 29 Final

Ace Austin in Bullet Club!

Bullet Club have another new member.

El Phantasmo, Chase Owens, and Bad Luck Fale were in action against The United Empire's Jeff Cobb, Great-O-Khan, and Aaron Henare at today's Best Of The Super Juniors 29 final from the Nippon Budokan. 

Henare had El Phantasmo on his shoulders down the stretch but IMPACT Wrestling's Ace Austin suddenly appeared on the apron, holding an ace of spades. The X-Division Champion then threw up the Too Sweet and ELP took advantage and decked a distracted Henare with a Sudden Death before he connected with CR2 for the victory. 

Austin then celebrated with Phantasmo, Owens, and Bad Luck Fale following the contest before he handed a Bullet Club ace of spades to ELP, confirming he was the latest member of the stable. 

Austin has been in Japan since mid-May competing in the Best Of The Super Juniors 29 tournament. 'Inevitable' finished with 10 points, meaning he did not advance to the final but he proved popular with the Japanese fans.

The X-Division Champion is now the second member of the IMPACT Wrestling roster in Bullet Club, joining Chris Bey. Bullet Club Leader Jay White has also been a regular performer in IMPACT Wrestling over the last 11 months.
