Tension Within Bullet Club Rises Following NJPW Autumn Attack
Is another Bullet Club split on the horizon?
Bullet Club has very much been a divided force in recent months as the likes of Jay White, Chris Bey and Hikuleo have primarily performed in the United States while EVIL, Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa and Chase Owens have competed in Japan, representing the faction in G1 Climax 31.
White, who has been the leader of Bullet Club since Kenny Omega's exit in 2019, defeated IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Robbie Eagles on October 9 as the first matches from NJPW's Autumn Attack tapings aired on NJPW World.
Following the match, The Switchblade had some choice words for Bullet Club as he said: "It's almost like (Bullet Club) have forgotten who makes the decisions. It's almost like they've forgotten who's in charge! It's time to remind you all who I am!"
Tama Tonga then proclaimed himself to be the real leader of Bullet Club, though, replying to White's comments on social media with: "You should of been in this G1 so I can remind you who I am. Keep that Never belt warm while the rest of us go after the IWGP Heavy Weight Championship - The Real Leadership Position."
How tensions within Bullet Club will play out over the next few months ultimately remains to be seen. The faction does appear to be increasingly divided, though, as EVIL recently formed the House Of Torture subgroup with SHO, Dick Togo and Yujiro Takahashi. The King Of Darkness has also used his usual interference tactics to defeat his faction-mates in G1 Climax 31 matches, something Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa and Chase Owens have refrained from.
