Update on Jeff Jarrett, Omega/NJPW News, New Bullet Club Member
Sunday, November 12, 2017
Jeff Jarrett has gone through a rather turbulent few months as he has lost his job in Impact Wrestling, and he also recently checked himself into rehab for alcohol abuse. He checked into rehab after a wrestling promoter informed news outlets that Jarrett insisted on wrestling even though he was drunk. Jeff Jarrett has remained silent over the past couple of weeks, but Karen Jarrett recently posted a new photo of herself and her husband on her Instagram account. Visitation is allowed during treatment, so it is possible that the photo could be showing the first time that Karen and Jeff have seen each other since Jeff checked in a few weeks ago.
Not only is Kenny Omega one of the biggest stars in New Japan Pro Wrestling at the moment, but he is also one of the greatest talents in all of professional wrestling right now. He has put on several outstanding matches this year, he's continued leading the Bullet Club to victory, he is currently the IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion, and he will be facing Chris Jericho at Wrestle Kingdom 12. It does not look like Omega is going to be joining WWE next year though, because the Wrestling Observer Newsletter now claims that Omega will be re-signing with NJPW. His current contract currently expires on January 31st, 2018.
The Bullet Club has continued to reinvent themselves over the past couple years to keep the act fresh. They have mainly done so by bringing in new members after others have left the group. At a recent Melbourne City Wrestling event in Australia, the Bullet Club inducted a new member into the group. Bullet Club member Bad Luck Fale teamed up with “Mr. Juicy” Gino Gambino to defeat the team of Helter Skelter (Ali and Jake Andrewartha). After the match, Fale offered a Bullet Club t-shirt to Gambino. He accepted the shirt from Fale and Gambino is now officially the first Australian wrestler to join the popular faction.
