“It really felt like we were losing our identity”- Bad Luck Fale opens up on Kenny Omega’s leadership of the Bullet Club after the departure of AJ Styles.
Finn Balor was the creator of the Bullet Club and AJ Styles helped establish them as top tier threat. However, it can be argued that Kenny Omega took the faction to international stardom. Him and the Elite played a major role in their expansion in the U.S.
However, Bullet Club OG, Bad Luck Fale, believes that Omega and his friends abandoned what was laid by his predecessors and instead went about in his own manner. In a recent interview with New Japan Pro Wrestling, The Rogue General admitted that the Elite seemed very interesting in the beginning but the BC soon began losing their identity under them.

“It was exciting at first,” Fale said. “Yeah, I thought this was our chance to take what we had built and bring it to the States, bring it to the world. It got us a lot of notoriety, as a brand, but…
“No. It wasn’t taking what we had built overseas, it was taking Kenny and the Elite’s vision overseas. We weren’t wrestling the way we did; we were wrestling the way they did. It really felt like we were losing our identity.”
Kenny Omega took over the group after AJ Styles moved to the WWE. Soon, him and the Young Bucks, created a sub-group within the faction called The Elite. Soon other wrestlers such as Cody Rhodes, Marty Scrull etc joined the Elite.
The Bullet Club OG and The Elite eventually parted ways with Kenny Omega and his friends forming a their very own wrestling promotion; All Elite Wrestling. The Bullet Club on the other hand are now under Jay White and have successfully rebuilt themselves.
