In April 2018, vignettes began to air on New Japan programming proclaiming that the infamous Bone Soldier would be returning to the promotion. For those that don’t know, Bone Soldier, portrayed by the man formerly known as Captain New Japan, was a pointless addition to the incredibly popular Bullet Club faction, who lasted all of five months in the stable, being voted as the Worst Gimmick of 2016 by WON, and described as an “intergalactic disaster” by BC’s own Kenny Omega.
Bullet Club is the most popular stable in the wrestling world. Not since the late 90s have we seen a group completely take over the sport quite like this. Bullet Club shirts are the new NWO shirts, and too sweet is the new…too sweet.
