IMPACT Wrestling’s Don Callis has given his thoughts on the reunion of former Bullet Club members Kenny Omega, the Good Brothers, and The Young Bucks which closed the latest episode of AEW Dynamite.
Speaking in-character to talkSPORT’s Alex McCarthy, Callis listed he and Kenny Omega’s achievements over the past few weeks on IMPACT. These have included Omega winning the AEW World Championship from Jon Moxley, as well as setting up an inter-promotional 6-man tag match at IMPACT’s Hard To Kill event between Omega and the Good Brothers, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson, and IMPACT World Champion Rich Swann and the Motor City Machine Guns, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin.
“Gallows and Anderson are the IMPACT Tag Team champions and they’re a tremendous team. It seems like people, for some reason, continue to be amazed by what Don Callis and Kenny Omega put together on a week-to-week basis. You thought it was over with Winter is Coming when Kenny and I took the world title from Jon Moxley.
“Then when we showed up on IMPACT Wrestling and subsequent appearances that we now have an inter-promotional match where Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers face Rich Swann and a legendary tag team in their own right, the Motor City Machine Guns, on an IMPACT pay-per-view. It’s huge.
‘The Hidden Hand’ went on to to talk about bringing the Good Brothers to AEW, reuniting them with The Young Bucks, and how only he and Omega could have brought the former Bullet Club members back together.
“Then, in one night, we not only beat Rey Fenix in what a lot of people are saying is an early Match of the Year contender, but we also rolled out the Good Brothers on AEW programming – another good lesson for Tony Khan to always keep his mind open to the opportunities that exist outside his bubble – and then The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega’s best friends, the AEW Tag Team champions.
“Who thought that group that could be put back together? Well there’s only one person that could do it, that’s me and Kenny Omega. It made Kenny happy to be back with the Bucks, so that makes me happy.”
Karl Anderson was an original member of NJPW’s Bullet Club in 2013 alongside Finn Balor, Bad Luck Fale, and Tama Tonga. Doc Gallows and The Young Bucks soon joined the group, and it became one of the most recognisable factions in professional wrestling. Kenny Omega joined the following year and ascended to the leadership position in 2016 after ousting AJ Styles. ‘The Cleaner’ remained as the head of the stable until he departed NJPW to join AEW as an Executive Vice President in 2019.
IMPACT Hard to Kill takes place on January 16th, check back at Inside the Ropes for coverage of the event.
