David Finlay Declares He Is The New Leader Of Bullet Club
David Finlay proclaims himself as the new leader of Bullet Club
He has yet to be accepted by the wider faction but David Finlay has declared he is the new leader of Bullet Club.
Speaking after his New Japan Cup second-round win over Great-O-Khan on Wednesday, March 15, Finlay stated:
"Look at me. My talent, my potential. You know that O-Khan can't compete with me. How many generations am I? It's a masterpiece born from the bloodline of the strongest and greatest wrestlers of each era. Even the strongest man in the world needs numbers to win a war. But we've all seen what a career without taking risks would look like, so whether others like it or not, I'm the leader. But BC's job is not to follow me, it's to push me forward. And I'll turn the era into gold. I came in because BC was waiting for me to lead. No. I entered because BC was a weapon waiting to be used by me," Finlay said.
Finlay was unveiled as the latest member of Bullet Club by Gedo earlier this month during NJPW's 51st Anniversary Show. Finlay will next face Shota Umino in the quarter-finals of the New Japan Cup as he looks to earn a match for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at Sakura Genesis on April 8.
Jay White had been the leader of Bullet Club but he left NJPW following his loss to Eddie Kingston in a Loser Leaves New Japan Match at Battle in the Valley on February 18. White was then laid out by Finlay following the match.
Other previous leaders of Bullet Club include Prince Devitt (Finn Balor), AJ Styles, Karl Anderson, and Kenny Omega.
