Why did Bullet Club member Chase Owens decide to re-sign with New Japan Pro Wrestling?
Who better to ask than the man himself?
The pro wrestling veteran addressed this subject, as well as his thoughts on the Bullet Club controversy in AEW and IMPACT Wrestling, during a recent appearance on The Straight Talk Wrestling podcast.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On re-signing with NJPW because they are the best wrestling company in the world: "It’s just the way New Japan takes care of you. Making good money and like I said earlier, they’re the best wrestling in the world so, how are you gonna become the best wrestler if you’re not competing night in, night out with the absolute best?"
On the Bullet Club controversy from AEW/IMPACT Wrestling: "Yeah, I’d rather not get into that. I don’t fully agree with them trying to be Bullet Club but I don’t think they’ve actually, like, said they were Bullet Club, you know what I mean? I don’t know. Who knows? This might be something for AEW and IMPACT, New Japan to work together. I don’t know, I don’t hear nothing. But who knows? The only reason I don’t like commenting on it because you know, I’m friends with Tama [Tonga], I’m friends with [Bad Luck] Fale, I’m friends with [Doc] Gallows and [Karl] Anderson and Kenny [Omega] so, and I don’t have a bone in the fight so."
