Earlier today New Japan Pro Wrestling hosted the finals of the New Japan Cup where EVIL took on Kazuchika Okada. Bullet Club members shockingly helped EVIL get the win but many thought nothing of it and assumed it was BC continuing their beef with Okada.
Evil joining BC, what a swerve. #njcup

Post-match EVIL called double champion and his LIJ (Los Ingobernables De Japon) faction leader Tetsuya Naito down to the ring. Naito went to fist bump his comrade but instead, EVIL turned it into a Two Sweet (Bullet Club’s signature taunt) and hit his Everything Is EVIL finisher and was joined by the Bullet Club members in the ring.
EVIL, now a member of the Bullet Club will take on Naito in just 24 hours at Dominion following the biggest angle of the year for NJPW. The move does make sense as Bullet Club’s main leaders KENTA and Jay White may not be able to return fo Japan for some time so Bullet Club needed a new star and EVIL was their man.
