The Bullet Club, or more specifically, the cast of the hit YouTube show ‘Being the Elite’ (Cody, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, Marty Scurll & Adam Page) have recently announced they plan to run a self funded show September 1st, 2018, and details up until this point have been hard to come by, but we’ve finally got something to talk about. No, it’s not a venue (fingers crossed for Chicago so we can see the return of that famous wrestler guy from there), but it’s the first competitor announced outside of the Bullet Club, and it is 2nd generation star, Tessa Blanchard.
Blanchard has become big around the world by putting on great performances in promotions such as Impact, WCPW and even the WWE during the first ever Mae Young Classic. After her partner Ricochet signed with WWE, there was some level of expectation that she may follow suit. But that’s not to be, as she has announced her intentions of being ‘All In’, September 1st on Instagram, and I for one am very excited. We don’t know her opponent, we don’t know literally anything else about the show other than a date, but it finally seems that the show is coming together, and we may be seeing more performers do the same in the near future.
As for the location of the show, Matt and Nick Jackson have promised that all will be revealed in an upcoming episode of Being the Elite, and with California, Toronto, London and Chicago all being in the mix, it will be a huge announcement. As far as other performers go, we can assume the likes of Joey Ryan, Will Ospreay, Dalton Castle and other big names will be there. But in order to sell out their goal of 10,000 seats, they will need to pull out some HUGE names. Until that point, all we can do is sit around, wait and fantasy book some dream matches for the show, but for now, at least we have one bit of information to continue the hype for what is shaping up to be one of the biggest independent wrestling shows of all time.
So what do you guys think? Are you excited to see Blanchard on yet another big stage? Were you looking forward to her following Candice LeRae and Ricochet to WWE? Do you even care about Bullet Club's upcoming show? Let us know all your thoughts in the comments below.
