Clark Connors feels BULLET CLUB War Dogs would run through Bullet Club Gold. 

Jay White and Juice Robinson have formed Bullet Club Gold in All Elite Wrestling and on the most recent episode of Dynamite, The Gunns (Austin & Colten Gunn) assisted White to victory over Ricky Starks in the main event. 

On the New Japan Pro-Wrestling front, BULLET CLUB War Dogs were unveiled as David Finlay is leading Clark Connors, Alex Coughlin, Dan Moloney and Gabriel Kidd. While Connors was speaking to Marie Shadows on the Squared Circle Podcast, he said he’s in the real BULLET CLUB. 

Connors stated that White and Robinson could not cut it in New Japan so they went to AEW. He mentioned The Gunns helping Jay on Dynamite and said any four members of War Dogs would destroy BULLET Club gold. Connors added that AEW consistently has ‘worse wrestlers’ than NJPW. 

I mean the fact that it’s called BULLET CLUB Gold means it’s not the original. It’s some knockoff of something. How they got the rights to — how they’re using BULLET CLUB? I don’t know. I think it’s bullsh*t. I think it’s an offense to what BULLET CLUB is and people might say, well, they’ve been in BULLET CLUB longer than you. It’s like, no, they have not. I’m in the real BULLET CLUB, they are not. They’re just making up their own thing over there and good for Jay White, that’s all I gotta say. Good for Juice Robinson. They couldn’t cut it in New Japan Pro-Wrestling so they had to go over to AEW and that’s it. AEW consistently has worse wrestlers than New Japan Pro-Wrestling. As much as I don’t love the company as it is, we have the best pro wrestlers in the world and BULLET CLUB’s the top faction in that company and therefore, I am one of the best pro wrestlers in the world. Better than Jay White, better than Juice Robinson. I just never had the chance to prove it and here it is, my chance is coming. So if they want any of the smoke and I just saw that they brought in ‘The Ass Kids’, good God, please. All four of them versus any four of the War Dogs, you kidding me? We’re gonna destroy them, mop the floor with them and like I said, Jay’s a great leader and Juice is a veteran but these two kids, these goofballs, good for them. I don’t know what the hell they’re doing but it isn’t BULLET CLUB.

Coming up on June 25th is AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2 and as of this writing, Bryan Danielson versus Kazuchika Okada along with Kenny Omega defending the IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Title against Will Ospreay is official for the pay-per-view
