Finn Balor Says Bullet Club in NJPW Was Not a ‘Storyline’

Finn Balor joined WWE in 2014, but that came after a great amount of success in different promotions, especially the widely popular Bullet Club.

The faction was formed by Balor and his friends in 2013 and has gone on to become a highly successful stable across several promotions.

Balor, who was known as Prince Devitt in Japan, formed the BC with Karl Anderson, Bad Luck Fale, and Tama Tonga. Tonga and Fale continue to be part of the group, but the faction has seen several changes across these years.

Balor spoke with Digital Spy recently and explained how the Bullet Club came in to being all those years ago.

The current NXT Champion said that he was quite frustrated with his booking in Japan, which ended up being the foundation for the villainous faction.

“Bullet Club’s a funny thing because obviously we created that in Japan and that was a moment in time and it really represented my personal feelings at the time.”

“I was disgruntled with how I was being treated by the office in New Japan and the bond that I had with Karl Anderson and Tama Tonga and Fale… it wasn’t a storyline that was a real moment in time and it was real emotions and real feelings.”

Bullet Club saw several members over the years, with current WWE stars like AJ Styles and Adam Cole also playing a part at some point in the group’s history.

Balor felt that despite all the changes in the group, the members had a bonding towards each other and will continue to do so forever.

Balor shared a ‘too-sweet’ moment with former Bullet Club member Adam Cole after their NXT Championship Match last week.
