If you are a true Professional Wrestling fan then you must have heard about the Bullet Club.
The Bullet Club also known as BC is a Professional Wrestling group. It mostly appears on New Japan Pro Wrestling(NJPW) And Ring Of Honor(ROH).
Though the Bullet Club has wrestled in more promotions than any other stable. They have assaulted other Superstars and defeated the hell out of them in promotions like Professional Wrestling Guerrill and Westside Xtreme Wrestling,
Chikara Wrestling, Professional Wrestling Syndicate, Over The Top Wrestling, Revolution Professional Wrestling, What Culture Pro-Wrestling, Family Wrestling Entertainment, Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre and many more promotions.
Wherever they went, they made an immense impact. They used to call themselves ‘The Evils’.
The logo of the Bullet Club shows Bone Soldier having two guns crossed.
How Was It Formed ?
The group was formed in mid-2013, when Prince Devitt (known as ‘The Demon King’ Finn Balor in WWE) assailed his mate, Ryusuke Taguchi, and later joined Karl Anderson and Tama Tonga to form a nefarious group of wrestlers and they named it “The Bullet Club”. Their goal was to spread out destruction in the wrestling industry.
After a few months, American wrestlers Matt and Nick Jackson better known as The Young Bucks joined them. Later, Doc Gallows also joined them. Towards the end of the year, they held both the IWGP Junior Heavyweight and IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championships.
Till then they had conquered half of New Japan Pro-Wrestling. Joining the Bullet Club was a good decision for all of them.
In 2014, Prince Devitt left New Japan Pro-Wrestling. Later, AJ Styles replaced him.
In the following months, they would get their first-ever Japanese wrestler, Yujiro Takahashi. The Bullet Club was getting better and better day by day and were continuing their destruction.
When New Japan Pro-Wrestling added the Never Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Titles, they won it too. They won every single New Japan Pro-Wrestling title. They kept on making their group bigger and bigger.
Then Kenny Omega joined the Bullet Club. Who would later become the leader of the Bullet Club as the former leader left New Japan Pro-Wrestling and joined WWE? At New Japan Pro-Wrestling Wrestle Kingdom 12, Kota Ibushi defeated Cody Rhodes, and Cody Rhodes along with other members assaulted Kota Ibushi but Kenny Omega saved him from them.
During a promo between The Young Bucks, Kenny and Kota were going on, Kenny assaulted on one of the members of The Young Bucks.
A couple of weeks later, ‘The American Nightmare’ Cody Rhodes said: “Bullet Club is fine, Bullet Club is mine.” And the rest of the members made him the leader. Now Kenny and Ibushi are partners and are known as The Golden Lovers.
21. The Young BucksRead More
Let’s begin with an explosion. The Young Bucks are an American Professional Wrestling Tag Team that consists of Matthew and Nicholas Massie, better known by their in-ring names, Matt and Nick Jackson. They are currently working on both Ring Of Honor (ROH) and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, they are also working for various independent promotions like Pro-Wrestling Guerrilla.
They have also worked in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, under the names, Matt and Jeremy Buck. The Young Bucks are one of the best tag teams in the world right now. Even if you are only a WWE fan, you would still know the name, Young Bucks.
Authors note: The thing I personally love the most about them is their behavior and The Superkick Parties. The Young Bucks have spent a long time in The Bullet Club. They are a major part of it.
20. Kenny OmegaRead More
Tyson Smith better known by his in-ring name, Kenny Omega was the inaugural IWGP United States Champion, a one-time IWGP Intercontinental Champion, two-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion, one-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champion, and two-time Never Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Champion.
He is also a one-time grade one climax winner. His leadership skills have always been good for the Bullet Club and for himself.
Both Prince Devitt and AJ Styles did their jobs in a spectacular way and so did Omega. All the pressure was on Kenny Omega, but Omega controlled it in a good way. He is one of the best members of the Bullet Club. Though he is not the leader anymore.
Cody Rhodes took over and now, Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi are partners, known as The Golden Lovers.
19. Cody HallRead More
Scott Hall has always had the capability to make others his fans. Also, he supports new talents, so he did in the Bullet Club. Many people view the group as the second version of the New World Order in many aspects.
The idea of outsiders that join companies to take over the company and be the best there with an ambiance of coolness, is similar to the New World Order. Hall always supported the young guys in the Bullet Club by giving them his blessing and advice.
In return, they allowed his son Cody Hall to be in the Bullet Club in a small role, but that doesn’t mean that Cody is not talented. He is a great Professional Wrestler who always has a feedback from his dad. Even though he is a family made wrestler, he is also destined to be a Superstar in the Professional Wrestling industry.
18. El TerribleRead More

17. HakuRead More
If you are a true Professional Wrestling fan then you must have heard about King Haku. He literally helped in making good childhoods of the ’90s kids. Probably the toughest Professional Wrestler of his generation. Even Superstars were scared to step into the ring with him. He was a sensation then.

He has also worked in New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s partner promotion, Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre, where he has held the Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre World Tag Team Championship twice. He has worked so hard to make the Bullet Club reach the platform they are currently on.

His career was not as good as the others. He couldn’t entertain people as he was expected to do. Since 2011 he was known as Captain New Japan, which was a copy of Marvel Superhero, Captain America, created by Stan Lee.
But in 2016 he joined the most villainous stable in the industry and left ‘The Captain New Japan’ gimmick. His biggest rival is Yoshi Tatsu. His goal is to probably give him pain again and again. Whether it is legal or not. He doesn’t care about rules, neither does the Bullet Club.
Currently, he wears a bone mast and gets boos from the fans.

7. Doc GallowsRead More
Andrew William Hankinson is an American wrestler currently working for WWE on their flagship show, RAW, under the name, Luke Gallows. Doc Gallows’ size and strength could have given him a major place in the Bullet Club, but the Bullet Club already had Bad Luck Fale, who is stronger than Doc Gallows.
Later he joined Karl Anderson, and they are still tag team partners. His run was not too good in New Japan Pro-Wrestling as he was in a side picture. In WWE, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows’ run is can still be better, so in future, he may do better than ever.

Cody Rhodes followed them and became one. He formed a tag team with his brother, Goldust in WWE, though that wasn’t successful.
He was a great talent but WWE just wasted him. Then Cody signed a contract with Ring of Honor. They knew how to use a shining star. They started giving him push and he came out to be the best.
He is currently the leader of the Bullet Club as he and the rest of Bullet Club members assaulted Kota Ibushi and Kenny Omega. He is probably one of the best heels in the industry right now. He does what’s best for business.
