Tama Tonga: Zero F**** Given….
That is the tagline from a new series of T-shirts at ProWrestlingTees featuring the member of Guerillas of Destiny. The popular Chicago based T-shirt store has been helping NJPW, ROH, and independent wrestlers earn additional revenue through merchandise since 2010.
Bad Luck Fale, Yujiro Takahashi, and other Bullet Club members also have merchandise available.
Pro Wrestling Tees
Pro Wrestling Tees has a unique creation story, one they detail on the About section of their website.
In the Summer of 2010, Ryan got an email from Scott Colton. He said, “Not sure if you’re familiar with me, but I’m a wrestler named Colt Cabana and I have a friend named CM Punk who is in WWE that needs a shirt to wear on tv that says, I Broke Big Show’s Hand.” They came by, had CM Punk sign a shirt, took some pics (above) and they left. Colt emailed Ryan some time after asking about printing up some “I Star Colt” t-shirts for him. He told Ryan he just started this new podcast (now known as “The Art of Wrestling”) and in exchange for making him some free shirts, he would make us “the go-to place for wrestling t-shirts”…..BOOM!
Bullet Club OGs in 2018
Tama Tonga and Bad Luck Fale are founding members of Bullet Club. Both are playing a large role in the expansion of the faction today. Not only do the Bullet Club OGs run Japan but also the Pacific Islands, Australia, and New Zealand. Fale runs a dojo in New Zealand and has even inducted Gino Gambino from Melbourne City Wrestling into the group.
4 members of the Bullet Club OG faction come from Tonga, the Polynesian state which produced the Barbarian and Haku. Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa, and Leo Tonga are Haku’s sons. Bad Luck Fale is cousins with the Guerillas of Destiny. He also grew up in Tonga but didn’t meet Tama Tonga or his brothers until he began training in the New Japan Dojo. He had been a pro rugby player in Japan before then.
