The drama within Bullet Club continued during NJPW Fallout Down Under, when Kenny Omega addressed the situation (albeit briefly) following his first match of the tour on Friday February 16 in Adelaide, South Australia. Normally teaming with fellow Elite members The Young Bucks, Omega’s first match saw him teaming up with Bad Luck Fale and Gino “Mr. Juicy” Gambino in a match against Juice Robinson, KUSHIDA and Toa Henare, which Bullet Club won. Following the match, Omega had some words for the Adelaide crowd and he slid in his comment on the Cody/Omega situation – “Bullet Club is NOT fine”.
The following night in Melbourne, things got a little more “complicated”. Cody Rhodes teamed up with the Young Bucks (ironically, against the same trio that Omega, Fale and Gambino faced the night before in Juice Robinson, KUSHIDA, and Toa Henare) and throughout the match, Cody teased stealing several of Omega’s spots and poses, much to the dismay of the crowd.
Following the match, Cody took the mic to address the crowd and assure everyone, that despite Omega’s words the previous night, Bullet Club was still “fine”, before attempting to announce that the Young Bucks were moving up to the Heavyweight division of the IWGP Tag Team (Bucks didn’t exactly confirm nor deny). But when he handed the mic over to the Young Bucks, Matt Jackson had some things to say:
“(Cody) has been saying ‘Bullet Club is fine’. Codeman, I love you, but things aren’t fine. In fact, things are a bit complicated…but Cody, things won’t be fine, because things in the Bullet Club are only fine when we have Kenny Omega. So, until then, we’ll come out here and have fun, we’ll have the party, we’ll steal the show, ’cause that’s what we do. But you’re gonna have to make it right, bro.”
Later in the evening, Kenny Omega partnered with Guerrillas of Destiny (Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa) to face the CHAOS team of IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada, Tomohiro Ishii and Rocky Romero, and during the match Omega used the CrossRhodes on Romero, stealing Cody’s move, as payback for Cody’s mocking use of Omega’s moves earlier in the card.
The tension continues to mount for Bullet Club, as the Young Bucks have firmly told Cody they stand with Kenny Omega and that the two have to work it out between themselves, putting more of an emphasis on the Supercard of Honor XII match up between the two this WrestleMania weekend.
Meanwhile, “The Villain” Marty Scurll – who was not a part of the Down Under tour – seems to be the most distraught over the situation, even hinting on Twitter that maybe it was time for him to start his own group.
