“Could Juice be Naito’s Partner? Disfunction in Bullet Club?”

There have been rumors about rebuilding NJPW’s foreign factions leading up to the World Tag League, which starts on Nov 18th.

In Bullet Club, Bad Luck Fale has been active on Twitter, hinting at a possible fresh start for the unit. He expresses his frustrations of the current Bullet Club, while appealing to Tama Tonga.


Indeed, compared with other NJPW’s groups such as Los Ingobernables de Japon, who are riding high, and Suzuki-gun who keep violating the tiles, Bullet Club has less presence, besides Kenny Omega. They definitely need a shot in the arm. Since Kenny Omega has announced his absence from the World Tag League, fans are talking about the group’s shift, a possible split-up, or somehow reinforcing new power.

Also, Juice Robinson’s drawing the fans attention. He recently deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts. The rumors about him joining Bullet Club or being Naito’s partner in World Tag League are spreading among fans.

Juice has had a big impact on NJPW this year, following with his IWGP Intercontinental Championship challenge against Naito and his upset win over Kenny Omega in the G1 Climax which led to his challenge for the US Heavyweight Championship in September.  For a bigger break in 2018, we can expect the possibility of a breakaway from his current image.

Naito revealed his plan for the World Tag League, backstage, after the Kourakuen Hall event on the 30th. 

This has been rumored many times before, as Juice’s first partner in NJPW was Naito, surprisingly. We will pay attention on Nov 18th, the first day of the World Tag League.
