Kenny Omega successfully defends the IWGP title against Cody but Bullet Club drama never ends

The main event of the G1 Special at the Cow Palace in San Francisco tonight (July 7) was Kenny Omega defending his IWGP heavyweight title against Cody.

It’s no secret that these two self-proclaimed leaders of the Bullet Club hate each other. And they proved that by what they were willing to do to each other tonight.

As the Young Bucks and Brandi Rhodes apprehensively watched at ringside, Omega and Cody did things like this to each other:

Or this:

In the end the IWGP champion retained with the One Winged Angel.

For Kenny, this was enough to get out his aggressions and put all of this behind him. After the match, Omega clasped the hand of Cody when checking on him. Then as Cody and Brandi left, Kenny gave him a thumbs up. In his closing statements, the champion talked about giving Cody another chance.

The Jacksons and Kenny walked up to the stage, and Tama Tonga, Tonga Loa, and their father Haku joined them. Finally, after all this time, Bullet Club was finally healed.

Just kidding!

The Tongans viciously attacked the Bucks and Kenny Omega, dragging them down to the ring and beating the hell out of them with chairs. Marty Scurll and Hangman Page tried to save them, but they were met with the same fate.

Cody eventually limped his way to the ring and Tama Tonga gave him a chair with the chance to finish off Kenny, who was already down and out.

Cody took the chair... but he attacked Tama Tonga instead! Unfortunately, he was soon laid out himself. Tama Tonga, Tonga Loa, and Haku left shouting that they were the real Bullet Club.

In the ring, a beaten Cody and Kenny shared an embrace. Their issues are finally behind them. But the Bullet Club issues are far from over.
