Karl Anderson: Ace Austin Joining Bullet Club Was Scott D'Amore's Idea
Ace Austin in Bullet Club? Thank Scott D'Amore
When you’re Bullet Club you’re Bullet Club for life. Alternatively, you can also be Bullet Club if someone in a position of power asks for your inclusion into the legendary group.
That partially is the case with Ace Austin, after the IMPACT X Division Champion joined BC at the recent Best of the Super Juniors tournament in New Japan, with Bullet Club co-founder Karl Anderson revealing on Talk’n Shop how Austin joined the Club:
"It's whatever booker wants to put the son b**** in,” started Anderson. “People will say, 'Why did you let this guy in?' Guys, listen, you have to understand. The person that makes the show gets to put the f****** person in the damn Club. Scott D'Amore wanted Ace Austin in there. That's not saying I didn't want him in there, it's a great shot for him. You can hate on the Bullet Club all you want, of course, anything that is done successfully is going to get hated on. You can't deny that it's going to help your career.”
Austin is the fourth member of the IMPACT roster to join Bullet Club, following Chris Bey, and OG members The Good Brothers, the latter of which rejoined the group in February 2022.
