WWE/NJPW News: Former WWE female superstar teases joining the Bullet Club
Could we see the Bullet Club get their first female member since 2015?
What’s the story?
Earlier this week, former WWE superstar Summer Rae took it to her official Twitter account and teased all her fans by stating the fact that she might be interested in joining legendary Japanese faction, the Bullet Club.
In case you didn’t know…
Summer Rae is a former WWE superstar, who was released from her WWE contract earlier this year, during the month of October alongside Emma and Darren Young as well.
Summer first signed for the WWE in 2011 as part of the company’s developmental territory. During her WWE career, she was part of several storylines which also involved various other superstars such as the likes of Rusev, Dolph Ziggler, and Fandango.
After working for the company for almost five years, Rae was released from her contract on 29th October, 2017.
The heart of the matter
Summer Rae is yet to wrestle for any wrestling promotion around the world, following her release from the WWE. There have been a few rumoured speculations that she might eventually retire from professional wrestling all-together, however, Summer has not hinted towards any sort of retirement plans just yet.
The former WWE superstar recently also took it to the social media (her personal Twitter account) and tweeted out the words “#Bullet Club” indicating towards the possibility of joining the Kenny Omega led faction.
The Bullet Club has previously worked with very few female wrestlers—two in total, one of them being Amber O’Neal who is also former member Luke Gallows’ wife. During her time with the Biz Cliz; Amber was known as “The Bullet Babe”. She also brought the NWA Women’s Championship to the faction.
The second female wrestler who was part of the Bullet Club was CMLL wrestler La Comandante, who joined the faction via the Bullet Club Latinoamerica -- the CMLL version of the stable which consisted of Mephisto, Rey Bucanero, Tama Tonga, El Terrible, and La Comandante herself.
It will now be interesting to note that if Summer Rae decides to continue her wrestling and eventually join the Bullet Club and become the group’s newest “Bullet Babe”.
NJPW may not have any female wrestlers, but one possible way for Summer to join the group would be to sign for Women of Honor (where ROH’s female talent are signed with) and then eventually join the Bullet Club.
I think Summer’s addition to the Women of Honor roster and the Bullet Club will add a different vibe to the group and we might also see the former WWE star accompany the likes of the Young Bucks or the Guerrillas of Destiny during their entrances, something that Amber Gallows used to do during her time with the stable.
