Tama Tonga Hints at Recruiting PAC to Bullet Club
Tama Tonga was one of the founding members of Bullet Club. Originally started by Prince Devitt (known now as Finn Balor), “Machine Gun” Karl Anderson, “Bad Luck” Fale, and Tama Tonga, Bullet Club was born in New Japan Pro Wrestling.
In recent months, there has been a split between members of Bullet Club: Kenny Omega and his The Elite versus Tama Tonga and his Firing Squad.
According to Tonga, his side of Bullet Club is the true stable.
“You have their side—the ROH side—against the Japan side of me, [Bad Luck] Fale, and [Tanga] Loa. Bullet Club was born in New Japan, but the Young Bucks ain’t signed in New Japan. Cody ain’t signed in New Japan. Adam Page and Marty Scurll ain’t signed with New Japan. From my understanding, a lot of them are becoming free agents at the end of this year. So, let’s see, who really is Bullet Club?” quote courtesy of WrestlingInc and Sports Illustrated
Tonga was asked how he would improve Bullet Club. After a call out from Kenny Omega, Tonga replied:
“I love always love a challenge. Kenny Omega did a promo during the G1 and said, ‘Tama, you think you can do better than me? You think you can push Bullet Club to new levels, higher ones than I did? Go ahead and prove it.’ Challenge accepted.” quote courtesy of WrestlingInc and Sports Illustrated
[regarding Neville/PAC and a part in Bullet Club] “”I know Neville and I’ve followed his work. He’s a phenomenal worker and he’s been here in New Japan before, I watched him in the Super Juniors in 2012. I love his work.” quote courtesy of WrestlingInc and Sports Illustrated
The civil war within Bullet Club has heated up in recent months. Tonga and his Firing Squad look to rid NJPW and Bullet Club of Kenny Omega and his The Elite squad.
Will Tama Tonga recruit PAC to Bullet Club? Will this help him in his war against The Elite? Only time will tell.
