Following the main event of Wednesday night’s AEW Dynamite, which saw Kenny Omega and KENTA pick up the win over Jon Moxley and Lance Archer in a No DQ/Falls Count Anywhere Match, Don Callis made a bold attempt to respond to Jay White, Tama Tonga and other members of NJPW’s Bullet Club following their unflattering remarks on AEW’s version of the group.
Jay White from NJPW called the reunion “corny”. Here is what White had to say:
“It’s still my era! It is the real era. I’m still Bullet Club. I’m real Bullet Club. This is real Bullet Club right here! We’re not a cheap rip-off trying to recreate the past, to regain some relevance and doing corny reunions just so you can sell sh**ty t-shirts to you all, but of course, you all still buy them because you are you. This is real Bullet Club. Let me tell you what real Bullet Club is about. It’s about change. It’s about moving forward. It’s about progression. It’s not about living in the past. It’s not about going backwards.”
Don Callis responded to these remarks with the following statement:
“We take all that can be taken — and then we take a little more. But I actually feel a little bit bad because look — the bottom line is when the three brothers left the Bullet Club, it left an opportunity for some midcard guys to move up the chain and fly the flag.”
Callis would continue on, asking fans to buy the NJPW merchandise as a show of support:
“Those guys are good guys, but you don’t replace Michael Jordan. I think the Bullet Club guys in Japan are great, I’m not familiar with what the names are just yet, but they’re flying the flag. I would like to put a stop all of these bad feelings. You know, they called us corny? I don’t know how you get over using words like that, but listen, I’d like to encourage all the fans out there, please, buy the merch. Let’s get them back in the Top 40 on Pro Wrestling Tees.”
