Bullet Club continues to divide into factions within the larger group. While much attention has been given recently to dissension between Cody and Kenny Omega, another clique of Bullet Club wrestlers is continuing to show signs they could fracture from the larger faction.
Bad Luck Fale, Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa, Leo Tonga, and “the Honorary Tongan” Chase Owens have begun to establish themselves as a sub-faction of the larger group. Yoshihiro Takahashi is also included in this group.
The Pacific Islanders have been actively recruiting members in both Australia and New Zeland, with Fale even opening up his own dojo. This group of Bullet Club wrestlers will most likely play a key role when NJPW tours Australia in mid-February.
Tama Tonga and Kenny Omega Dispute During G125
During the G1 last summer, Tama Tonga and Kenny Omega shared a few heated moments leading up to their round-robin match. Tonga expressed to Omega he was not in favor of how he places “the Elite” above the rest of Bullet Club.
When Omega wore a “the Elite” t-shirt to the ring for this match, Tama ripped it off him to start the match.
Considering both Tama Tonga and Bad Luck Fale have been members of the faction since its creation, Tonga might resent Omega for referring to any members of the faction as “Being Elite”.
Guerrillas Voyage to the Kingdom
Similar to the “Being the Elite” YouTube series, the Guerillas of Destiny have launched their own YouTube channel. They released a video early this morning which documents their voyage to Wrestle Kingdom.
With Tama Tonga taking the lead on another Bullet Club sub-faction YouTube channel, you have to wonder if there is a budding rivalry between his clique and “the Elite”. It also isn’t yet clear what they think of Cody’s planned “All In” event targetted for September.
One has to wonder if 2018 is the year we finally see a split in the faction.
Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa, and Bad Luck Fale are the current NEVER Openweight 6-Man Champions. They regained the titles at New Years Dash on January 5th, 2018.
