This war between Cody and Kenny is getting out of hand!
Capping off a busy week of pushing and shoving and apologizing and delivering ironic hipster burns, Cody Rhodes is teasing a major branding move which would clearly differentiate his Bullet Club from those lead by Kenny Omega, AJ Styles and Finn Bálor/Prince Devitt:
THE CLASSIC BULLET CLUB LOGO IS BEING RETIRED...— Cody Rhodes (@CodyRhodes) March 30, 2018
I will be unveiling the new logo next week! pic.twitter.com/U4Z1F3nriT
Would he really move away from one of the most iconic designs in recent (and possibly all of) wrestling history? It’s not like New Japan and their licensing partners have to stop selling the old logo, so they’re probably... fine... with a change, even if Bullet Club isn’t. The American Nightmare has a pretty good explanation, too, as he responded to a fan with a not-safe-for-work Twitter handle thusly:
“I’m sorry you feel that way. The orginal logo is indeed iconic and I was so proud/lucky to wear it. But the group has grown to be so much more and represent so much more. Bullet Club is 4 life (just not that logo). I hope you’ll be open-minded to the new look!”
#TeamCody guys are predictably supporting the move:

But there’s still no word from Marty Scurll or The Young Bucks (or Tama Tonga). Cody’s opponent for Sat., April 7’s Supercard of Honor XII show is unsurprisingly saying “not so fast”...
Um...A new logo...?! Everyone please have patience, this guy is on borrowed time and will be dealt with. pic.twitter.com/TFBxTiCpfC— Kenny Omega (@KennyOmegamanX) March 30, 2018
Are you fine with this?
