"The Bullet Club," best associated with New Japan World Wrestling (NJPW), caused quite a stir last Monday when key members invaded the parking lot of the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, Canada. What made it controversial is that it was staged just before WWE “Raw” went off the air.

“The Young Bucks” got their share of attention, rendering speeches and even handing out free merchandise. It called to mind a similar one done by "Degeneration X" (DX) back in the 90s and it didn’t take long for Vince McMahon and company to act on it.

A cease and desist order reached “The Young Bucks” following the event though some are toying with the idea of connecting the invasion to a possible WWE storyline.

Was the invasion part of the script?

In the WWE, anything is possible. McMahon can make it look like he is angry before it turns out that the whole thing is actually a storyline. Right now, that doesn’t seem the case but things could shed more light if “The Bullet Club” re-emerges once again.

That could be another invasion outside the arena where WWE shows are held.

However, things could get clearer if it comes to a point that Kenny Omega and/or Cody Rhodes suddenly make an appearance on any regular show the WWE offers.

Until that happens, the incident is considered nothing more than an effort to steal some thunder from the WWE. Present were Cody and Brandi Rhodes, Marty Scurll, Hangman Page and the Bucks (Matt and Nick Jason).

Too hot to ignore

Curiously, the faction didn’t really need to invade WWE “Raw” to gain attention. They are already getting plenty of exposure on YouTube with their latest skit titled “Being The Elite” viewed by 200,000 people in just 24 hours.

Legally, Wrestlingnews.co pointed out that “The Bullet Club” didn’t really do anything wrong. The WWE may have its hands tied for now unless they come up with something to prevent the “Young Bucks,” and other groups for that matter, from doing the same activity in the future.

Coincidence or fact?

Each time “The Bullet Club” is mentioned, the names of Finn Balor, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows and AJ Styles come to mind. Ironically, three of those names (Balor, Anderson and Gallows) are on “Raw.” So could there be a connection?

That would be hard to tell for now with a bigger picture likely to evolve moving forward.

The WWE has been notorious for pulling out scripts and this one seems to be no different compared to past shows.

Issuing a cease and desist order and hearing that Vince McMahon is unhappy about, it is also nothing new.Therefore, speculating that these incidents are part of the script, is not surprising, as it is something quite possible.
