The Bullet Club is perhaps the most popular non-WWE group going today. While there are names who have come and gone from the stable, members such as Bad Luck Fale, The Young Bucks, and Kenny Omega have remained faithful for quite some time. Other faithful such as Cody Rhodes, Marty Scurll, and Adam Page further adds to the depth of the group and strengthens its international flare.
While the group is quite popular, Nick and Matt Jackson were asked by Rolling Stone about former WWE Champion CM Punk possibly joining the group. Here is what they had to say.
Nick: “Matt and I have been saying this a lot lately: We would love to work with CM Punk. I think it’s just a matter of time for him to realize that he’s missed so much. I don’t think he realizes that the fans would just be so happy to see him back. To be able to work with him would help business even more, wherever that would be. It would be huge if we could get him over at Ring of Honor or New Japan and work something out. That would be one of my main goals, to get him back into wrestling.”
Matt: “I talk to him a lot. I bugged him for like, I don’t know, a year or two? I was really aggressive and at one point I realized that I should probably let him make his own decisions. He knows that there’s an offer there and he knows that I’m the first phone call that he should make if he decides to get back into the business. He’s told me that, he says when or if or ever he does decide to possibly get back into it, I’ll be the first guy he calls. It’ll be interesting. Whether or not he plays on our team or an opposing team, it’d be fun. When we’re talking about guys, another guy would be Bryan Danielson [WWE’s Daniel Bryan]. I don’t see him necessarily joining Bullet Club, but he’d be a fun guy to wrestle or to work with or whatever. Just to have him in the ring with us would be incredible.”
The team also said that, while there was a cease and desist order from WWE over the “too sweet” hand gesture, they know that WWE would probably be interested in talking after they finish out their current contract. They added that the reason why they are not in the WWE is that there “hasn’t been a right situation” for them to sign with the company.
Matt stated, “What’s so funny is that, only in pro wrestling, can a company threaten legal action on you, but then probably offer you a job a year later. Of course [the WWE] is interested. They’d be interested in just taking us just so New Japan and ROH doesn’t have us. In no other business would that be a thing.” Nick noted that they have 13 months on their current contract.
