Omega, Tama & Matt Jackson Comments on Recent Bullet Club Brawl
Monday, July 9, 2018
Last Saturday night at NJPW's G1 Special Event, IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega retained his IWGP Heavyweight Title via pinfall against Cody after hitting him with The One Winged Angel. After the match, Tama Tonga, Tonga Loa & King Haku came out to celebrate, but then attacked Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks from behind.
The rest of the Bullet Club (minus Bad Luck Fale and Bone Soldier) came down to the ring and also got beat up by Loa, Tonga & Haku. Cody eventually stumbled out and teased joining The Tongans, but remained with The Bullet Club and was also attacked.
After The Tongans left, Cody would help Omega up and it looked like they had buried the hatchet as the group recovered from the beat down. On Twitter, Omega said that he was proud of his first defense and his friendship with Cody, but the rest of it will be dealt with in due time, as seen below:
Loa, Tonga & Haku were all wearing "Firing Squad" shirts and Tonga had a simple, yet effective message to the rest of The Bullet Club, as seen below:
While surprising, Tonga's actions are not totally unexpected, as seen in the Being the Elite video below (from February) he looked to grow tired of the drama among the rest of the group. Near the end of the video, Rhodes and Omega had to be held apart from each other in the locker room while Tonga sat there basically motionless throughout the whole scene.
Matt Jackson also took to Twitter to comment about what took place at NJPW's G1 Special Event. Jackson wrote, "Licking our wounds. We're a family. We will overcome this. #BulletClubElite"
