‘The Elite’ Officially Confirms They Are No Longer a Part of Bullet Club

Published

All Elite Wrestling

In a major branding move that has perhaps been a long time in the making, Matt Jackson of the Young Bucks has officially confirmed that “The Elite” – a subgroup made up of himself, his brother Nick, Kenny Omega, Hangman Page, Cody Rhodes and Marty Scurll – are no longer a part of the Bullet Club family.

Jackson made the announcement at a live recording of the Talk is Jericho podcast, which took place onboard the Chris Jericho Rock ‘n’ Wresting Rager at Sea, currently on its way back to the coast of Florida from the Bahamas.

Matt told the story of their YouTube channel Being The Elite, which started as a simple travel vlog featuring the Young Bucks, and later expanded to feature more characters from the Bullet Club, largely due to the fact that they were all traveling together constantly.

As time went on The Elite spiraled into its own giant brand and began distancing itself from Bullet Club proper. With many of their contracts coming due at the end of the year (and technically Cody isn’t contracted to NJPW and his ROH deal is already up) the decision was made to stick with The Elite branding because the group owns the rights to the name, allowing them to control their own destiny if they leave NJPW or ROH.

Kanemaru Pulled From NJPW Best Of The Super Jr. Due To Injury, Replacement Announced

Published

NJPW World Tag League

New Japan Pro-Wrestling has just announced that Suzuki-Gun star Yoshinobu Kanemaru has been pulled from the upcoming Best of the Super Jr. tournament due to a knee injury.

With the annual tournament just days away from opening night, NJPW will look to stand-out Young Lion Yuya Uemura to fill the void. With the bracket shortened to just ten competitors this year, Uemura has a major opportunity to wrestle top names in the junior heavyweight division every single night of the month-long round robin.

Uemura gave the following statement translated by NJPW’s English website:

‘I know that my entry is as a result of Kanemaru’s injury, so I can’t say I’m delighted, but when I heard the news, I did get fired up.

Last year I was able to enter the Super Jr. Tag League, and unfortunately I ended on zero points. That was a real let down, and I know it was a disappointment for my partner Tiger Mask. I won’t ever live that down. In a league like this, everybody is trying to win. That’s what I learned last year in the tag league; I have to be aiming for the top the whole time.

I’ve been saying for months now that I want to make it into BoSJ, get results, and then maybe be able to challenge for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship. Well, I just about achieved the first goal. Now just to get results!
