IMPACT Wrestling’s Chris Bey was officially welcomed into the Bullet Club by Jay White on this past week’s edition of IMPACT TV.
The working relationship between New Japan Pro Wrestling and IMPACT appears to have been fully crystallised with IMPACT roster member Bey now a part of the infamous NJPW stable.
White seemingly has had his eye on Bey since arriving in IMPACT at Slammiversary, approaching the former X-Division Champion backstage with the offer of working together.
Bey was able to pick up the win for his team, pinning Robinson with ‘The Art of Finesse’ and affording his partner further momentum ahead of his NEVER Openweight Championship defence later in the month.
After the match, White presented Bey with a Bullet Club t-shirt and officially welcomed him into the legendary stable.

Inside the Ropes can certainly appreciate White’s rationale for recruiting Bey, having included him within our 30 Under 30 feature, which recognises some of the top young stars in the wrestling industry today.
This is yet another exciting development between the two promotions and in particular for Bey, who would make a welcome addition to New Japan’s Junior Heavyweight division, if afforded the opportunity.
