The founding fathers of Bullet Club

What’s the story?

The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling recently spoke with one of the founding fathers of Bullet Club Bad Luck Fale, to discuss the original formation of the now world renowned faction. Fale also shared his thoughts on Kevin Nash using the ‘too sweet’ gesture and being amongst the few men to defeat Shinsuke Nakamura.

Here is a video of Bad Luck Fale discussing the formation of Bullet Club:

In case you didn’t know...

On May 3rd Fale along with Karl Anderson Tama Tonga and Finn Balor (then known as Prince Devitt) formed a stable dubbed as the Bullet Club. The faction is now perhaps one of the most prominent factions of modern professional wrestling.

While the faction originally operated in NJPW, it now has a wing across various Indy promotions such as ROH, Chikara and WCPW amongst others. WWE also has its own spin-off on Bullet Club in The Club.

The heart of the matter

When asked about how the Bullet Club first came to life, Fale said the following:

We were enjoying our matches and we were just doing whatever we wanted to unless the office stepped in and said you cannot do that. Just playing around I think it was Prince Devitt (Finn Balor) and Karl Anderson even before we started the Bullet Club maybe one tour before I got there they threw up the "too sweet" sign after one of their matches. When we all got together we got Tama (Tonga) and Anderson to join me and Devitt in the ring and we all looked at each other and said let's throw it up and it just blew up from there. 

Fale also praised Nakamura and said that his kickboxing and grappling abilities made him one of the most influential guys in the NJPW dojo. 

What’s next?

Bullet Club leader Kenny Omega will make his in-ring return on NJPW’s HONOR RISING tour, that is co-produced with ROH. Omega would challenge Kazuchika Okada for his IJPW Heavyweight Championship.

Sportskeeda’s take

The stable that started as the means to get Prince Devitt over as a heel turned into this worldwide phenomenon that has truly taken over the professional wrestling world.
