Adam Cole fired, Marty Scurll hired by Bullet Club at War of the Worlds.

On May 12th. At Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling’s War of the Worlds event. After Adam Cole had an amazing match with New Japan star, Hiroshi Tanahashi. He was greeted by his fellow Bullet Club members and best friends, Matt and Nick Jackson.

Hugs and a too sweet were provided, that was until the lights went out and Bullet Club’s leader, Kenny Omega appeared on the titantron and spoke about Cole’s tenure in not only the Bullet Club, but in professional wrestling.

Omega called it long, fruitful and storied. Omega also stated that Cole was not only fired. But, that all fairy tales must come to an end and that every fairy tale has a hero and has a villain.

That made every fan know what was happening when the “Villain” Marty Scurll appeared in the video, dressed in black and  a black steampunk plague doctor mask and the video then cut off.

The lights would come on and Scurll would stand there, Matt and Nick did good on acting shocked alongside Cole, until Scurll opened his umbrella to reveal the Bullet Club logo on it, once that happened, Matt and Nick would hit a stereo Superkick to Cole and Scurll hit Cole with his umbrella.

The pro wrestling world  stood shocked with the firing of Adam Cole and hiring of Marty Scurll by the Bullet Club’s leader, Kenny Omega and the future of Bullet Club will be nothing less of villainous for New Japan and Ring of Honor.

Is Adam Cole NXT Bound?

In as little as one month,  Adam Cole’s contract with Ring of Honor will be coming to an end. 

This has led everyone with speculations that he’ll be signing with WWE’S developmental company,  NXT.  Cole is a huge name in the independent scene, from being the longest reigning PWG World Champion to ROH’S three time World Champion.

Last May he joined the Bullet Club, later on went to New Japan Pro Wrestling and defended the ROH World Championship numerous times while also winning it back to start his third reign.

Recently, after losing the ROH World Championship to Christopher Daniels at the 15th Anniversary of ROH,  He attempted to fire Matt and Nick Jackson from the Bullet Club.

Ultimately that failed and so recently, he has tried keeping good between both himself and members of Bullet Club,  but another rumor has speculated that the leader of Bullet Club, Kenny Omega is out to rid Cole after both men have been having heat between the both of them.

If this happens and Cole does leave the Indies for NXT.  It could be very huge for the Panama Playboy, many starts develop themselves more in NXT,  From Finn Balor to Sami Zayn to Kevin Owens with teams as well,  DIY to The Revival to American Alpha.

Cole has the skills to promo and wrestle, build anything from nothing to something and could definitely have revived feuds with many stars once making it to either Raw or Smackdown.

Cole is great anywhere he goes,  staying with ROH or going to NXT is the big question at the moment. All we can say is the rest of April will be anything but predictable.

Kenny Omega: From Nothing to Main Eventing the Tokyo Dome.

From anyone who has watched Kenny Omega and his matches,  promos and in general, his career. They have seen what he is actually capable of doing from making a match into a match to remember.

Starting off in independent companies such as PCW, PWS, ROH, DDT,  JAPW and PWG, Omega has practiced and perfected his craft and proven that even an Otaku gamer gimmick like his can be put into a great thing for a show.

After being released by the WWE in 2006, Omega would embark on a mission to prove all the naysayers wrong, by getting more noticed in the Indy scenes which he did to later on get an opportunity to wrestle for New Japan Pro Wrestling.

In his first match he teamed with long time friend,  Kota Ibushi.
They faced off against a legendary team known as No Respect which consisted of Gedo and Jedo.  Being victorious in the match,  they would later win the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Titles,  only to lose them a few months later and stop teaming afterwards due to Omega turning Heel and joining the gajiin stable,  Bullet Club.

In Omega’s first PPV singles match in NJPW at Wrestle Kingdom 9.
He defeated another legendary Japanese wrestler known as Rysuke Taguchi for the IWGP Jr, Heavyweight Championship. which he would hold for a few months before losing and regaining it from Kushida only to lose it a year after his huge singles win at Wrestle Kingdom 10.

The day after Omega’s loss,
He would attack and fire Bullet Club’s leader,  AJ Styles who was leaving NJPW to sign with the WWE. Omega would announce he was taking over as the new leader of Bullet Club,  and going from a Jr. Heavyweight to a Heavyweight wrestler to compete for many more championship titles and takeover NJPW.

In Omega’s first PPV now as a Heavyweight wrestler,  he defeated the “Ace” of NJPW,  Hiroshi Tanahashi for the vacant Intercontinental Championship in a huge main event that would be the start of Omega’s rise to the top. 

Months later,  Omega lost the Intercontinental Championship and decided to instead compete in the 26th annual G1 Climax tournament which is a 2 week event where the A block with the most wins faces the B block and the winner gets a IWGP Heavyweight or NEVER Openweight Championship match in the main event  at Wrestle Kingdom 11.

After a long and grueling 2 weeks, Omega would make it to the finals facing off against Hirooki Goto and defeating him to not only win the G1 but to be the first gajiin to do so.

After 5 months,  Omega had already set the challenge to face off against reigning and defending IWGP Heavyweight Champion,  Kazuchika Okada in what would be leader vs leader,
Bullet Club VS Chaos.

Throughout the whole match, 
You can tell that no matter what anyone has said bad about Omega,  they were all wrong,
because he proved that someone who people said would never make it, can make it and compete in the main event at Wrestle Kingdom 11, at the Tokyo Dome. and mark the first ever 6 star match in Pro Wrestling history.

Omega is still young,  he can still compete in more huge matches.
If he still stays with NJPW next year or if he decides to go to WWE,Everyone knows that he can and will prove the naysayers wrong all the time, with every match he’s in and that is an already proven promise.
