Young Bucks Promoting Another Epic Invasion

Young Bucks, who are members of the Bullet Club, signed to both New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) and Ring of Honor (ROH).
They are currently in their first reign as the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions as part of Bullet Club.

What’s Old is New Again…
One of the most iconic moments in WWF/E Attitude Era has to be, undoubtedly, when D-Generation X invaded WCW Monday Nitro, which brings amusement to Vince Mcmahon himself.

Is karma being served? Because the table is now turning.

On “Being the Elite” episode
On the 25th September, the duo, along with fellow Bullet Club members Marty Scurll, Hangman Page, Cody and Brandi Rhodes, invaded WWE Raw. They also decided to crash the parking lot of the arena before Raw.

During the invasion, Cody Rhodes was stating his mission is to get his family name back. By far the best part is when they get close to the arena, the invaders began yelling out for former members. They yelled out the names of Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson and Finn Bálor earnestly pleading:

“We’re here to rescue you!”

Cody Rhodes kept his Twitter updated on all the action, of course:

Cease And Desist T-Shirts

The YB revealed that they received a cease and desist letter from WWE after staging a Bullet Club “invasion.”

Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that in the letter, WWE claimed that the Young Bucks are using their purchase of WCW’s intellectual property. More specifically, they wanted them to stop using the “Too Sweet” hand gesture, which is owned by WWE. The WWE threatened that if they don’t, the YB will be hit with $150,000 in damages.

But the Young Bucks managed to turn their legal woes into MONEY, by making t-shirts.

Young Bucks & The Bullet Club’s Next Move…

WWE/NXT is pulling out all of the stops for the upcoming NXT house show in San Antonio. The first announcement made was that Shawn Michaels would be returning to the ring in order to referee a title match between Adam Cole and Drew McIntyre.

But the real reason NXT is trying very hard for people to buy tickets? Well, because there will be another high-profile wrestling show going on across town.

ROH is holding a mini-tour in Texas on November 17th and 18th. They plan to roll into Dallas on November 18th, but they’ll be in San Antonio on the same night as NXT’s house show. And Bullet Club is promoting this San Antonio show as “Bullet Club Invades San Antonio” which really adds another level of intrigue to the situation.

Therefore, fans can only imagine what The Bullet Club might have on the drawing board to execute the next time they’re so close to a WWE event. After all, the last time they “invaded” Raw it made plenty of headlines and rocked the pro wrestling world.

Regardless of that, WWE isn’t a fan of it happening to them. With Monday night and now possibly NXT, the Bullet Club invasion isn’t pleasing Vince McMahon one bit.

Writer’s View

If I were Triple H, I would make a deal with ROH and bring them to the NXT: War Games PPV. It would be for a one-time event run-in. This would benefit both parties, and they can bring many more fresh matches between ROH & NXT. But every fan knows that if it’s not Meekmahon’s idea, it will never happen in a WWE ring.

We can only dream.
