NJPW News: Hulk Hogan says he wants to join the Bullet Club
What’s the story?
After receiving an ‘Open Invitation’ from the Bullet Club last month to join their ranks, Hulk Hogan revealed at an autograph signing this weekend that he would indeed love to. In a video from Pro Wrestling Sheet, Hogan was quoted as saying:
"I would love to be in The Bullet Club. I’d love to be the OG for The Bullet Club. Teach them boys how to really get corrupt!”
In case you didn’t know...
One of the most popular pro-wrestling factions in the business, Bullet Club comprised of several notable members such as AJ Styles, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Finn Balor, Adam Cole and Cody Hall among others.
The Japanese wrestling group is widely regarded as this generation’s New World Order, garnering worldwide notoriety owing to its dominance in NJPW (New Japan Pro Wrestling).
Also, apart from the Hulkster, Bullet club has shown interest in welcoming the current UFC novice CM Punk.
The heart of the matter
Even teasing to join New Japan’s popular stable, might just mean an incredible turnaround for Hulk Hogan’s career. Hogan is still seen as a huge star in Japan and even if he doesn’t wrestle, just having him as a part of an angle would do insane business.
Thus, it’s safe to assume that all the four stablemates of the Bullet Club would love to see either Punk or The Hulkster join them in their quest to dominate the world of sports entertainment.
There has been speculation for quite some time that Hulk Hogan might join the Bullet Club and with Hogan’s relationship with WWE still a little rocky, to say the least, the fans might just get what they’ve wished for!
If Hogan joins the Bullet Club, he would be the second nWo member to do so.
The WWE Hall of Famer has competed in New Japan Pro-Wrestling in the mid-1990s and even made a comeback in 2003. However, Bullet Club can do much better than Hogan, especially given the fact that today’s pro-wrestling fans are more inclined to see people who can actually wrestle rather than stars like Hogan who’ve been done for a long time.
