Ring of Honor (ROH)’s Global Wars Chicago internet pay-per-view (iPPV) on Sunday, Oct. 15 opened and closed with more shots fired in the battle between The Bullet Club and WWE.
Although he didn’t mention Raw’s Big Dog by name, Club member and ROH World champion Cody Rhodes opened the show with a promo responding to Roman Reigns’ tweet about his drawing ability. Before getting into the bulk of his promo, Rhodes took a shot at Reigns, saying he thought he wore a vest to hide his gut and failed drug tests, but now we know Roman is really hiding his envy.
At the end of the night, after a run-in filled main event between BC’s Kenny Omega and YOSHI-HASHI where Omega successfully defended his IWGP United States championship, Cody hit the ring along with The Young Bucks, Marty Scurll and Adam Page to celebrate. They decided to take a group selfie, but none of them had a camera.
LUCKILY, Jimmy Jacobs - fresh off allegedly being dismissed from WWE’s Creative team for posting a selfie with The Bullet Club from their appearance outside a Raw show to his Instagram - was in the audience with a camera...
Pleasant surprise to see old friends in lovely Chicago. pic.twitter.com/5ss05ryASW— jimmyjacobs.net (@JimmyJacobsX) October 16, 2017
And don’t think The Bucks would let this slide without directly referencing Jacobs’ former employer...
Apparently writers don’t have non-compete clauses in their contracts as it pertains to appearing on another promotion’s televised shows. The announce team of Ian Riccaboni and BJ Whitmer hinted Jacobs could be back, too.
Whether he is or not, this Bullet Club/WWE beef is definitely still a thing.
Is that good? You decide, Cagesiders.
