Bullet Club’s Firing Squad have recently been scheduled for two upcoming title matches in NJPW. Although NJPW President, Harold Meij, threatened the group with suspensions due to their repeated interference during the G1, the faction is once again back on the promotion’s tours for September.

The Firing Squad won the NEVER 6-Man tag-team Championships on the final day of the G1 Climax tour. They then threw the belts down in front of Harold Meij. Now, Meij has scheduled for the group to defend the titles on the September 15th show from Hiroshima.
The Firing Squad will defend their titles against Juice Robinson, David Finlay, and Ryusuke Taguchi.
The Firing Squad Confirm New Member
A year ago today was the first ever NJPW AUS tryout. Since then we’ve had the best NJPW has to offer come down under, had the first ever Aus member of BC, had a NJPW Aus tour and countless tryouts and seminars. Tonight #mcw100 is a celebration of all the hard work we have done! pic.twitter.com/FYJbi9to2t

Since their original attack following the G1 Special in San Francisco, the group has added a few wrestlers. The original names confirmed were Haku, Tama Tonga, and Tanga Loa but quickly it would be confirmed that Bad Luck Fale and HIKULEO were both aligned with the faction as well.
The group then added Taiji Ishimori on the final days of the G1 tour. They have now added Gino Gambino from Melbourne City Wrestling. The faction, Fale most notably, spend a lot of time on the continent. Fale has a dojo in New Zealand and has worked with Gambino often. Gambino frequently tags with Bullet Club members when they tour the territory.
