The sometimes slowed but never ending Bullet Club expansion continued at Night One of New Japan’s Wrestle Grand Slam in Saitama’s Met Life Dome this morning (Sept. 4). Switchblade Jay White inducted Chris Bey on Impact last month, and now the Japanese wing had grown by one.
After winning three straight Super Junior Tag League tournaments, Roppongi 3K went winless in this year’s edition. At Summer Struggle, that was enough for SHO to turn on YOH. That led to their singles match at today’s event, where the fresh heel beat his former partner via referee stoppage when YOH passed out in a gogoplata.
Afterwards, SHO kept anyone from assisting YOH. That was the icing on the villainous cake for Bullet Club’s EVIL, Yujiro Takahashi and Dick Togo, who made their way to the ring and offered SHO a new shirt.
As you can see in that GIF, there is a twist/new merch. The shirts the trio were wearing read “House of Torture” on the front, with the familiar Bullet Club logo on the sleeve. This could be a new sub-faction within the larger Biz Cliz.
As Roppongi 3K, SHO had been a member of CHAOS. No more.
