The Good Brothers Return To NJPW At Wrestling Dontaku

The Good Brothers are back in NJPW

For the first time since 2016, The Good Brothers stepped inside an NJPW ring in Japan at today's Wrestling Dontaku event from Fukuoaka's PayPay Dome. 

Immediately after Tama Tonga defeated EVIL to win the NEVER Openweight Title with a Gun Stun, the former Bullet Club member was assaulted from behind by the returning Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows.

The Good Brothers wiped out Jado with a Magic Killer moments later before they prevented Tanga Loa from making the save. Anderson then turned his attention to the NEVER Openweight Title and he lifted up the gold, revealing that he plans to challenge his former Bullet Club faction-mate for the championship. 

Anderson then put an exclamation point on his attack, decking Tonga with a Gun Stun on the NEVER Openweight Title.

The Good Brothers' return to NJPW is just the latest chapter in the feud between Bullet Club and Guerrillas Of Destiny that began back in February when Jay White turned on G.O.D. and invited Anderson and Gallows back into the NJPW stable. Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa initially hoped to convince Bullet Club to side with them during the New Japan Cup but BC's Japanese contingent ultimately sided with Jay White. 

Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows both have a long history in NJPW and they are four-time IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions together. Anderson also had another reign with the gold with Giant Bernard as Bad Intentions. 

The Good Brothers left New Japan in 2016 to join WWE but were released by Vince McMahon's company in 2020. The Good Brothers then signed with IMPACT Wrestling and they have made sporadic appearances on NJPW's United States shows, last competing at Windy City Riot on April 16 in a Bullet Club vs. United Empire 12-man tag.
