Meet Bullet Club Recruit Robbie Eagles

On October 8th, Bullet Club OG member, Bad Luck Fale, announced that the group had been scouting around the world, and had found their newest recruit – the Australian indie star, Robbie Eagles, who will debut in the NJPW Super Junior Tag League alongside Taiji Ishimori, starting October 16th.

Why He’s a Great Addition to BC OG

  • Tag team partner for Ishimori during Super Junior Tag League, and possibly beyond that
  • Can represent the group outside of New Japan both in Australia and in certain American indies
  • Some new blood to the group – he’s pretty much an unknown to most New Japan viewers, especially their domestic audience, so bringing Robbie in would give them the mystery advantage in Junior Tag League and a chance to mould him into a proper representative of the group
  • Simply put, he could have some great matches if given the chance
  • He doesn’t have to be there full time, he can be brought him on occasions that require him

What You Can Expect From Him in New Japan

  • Some fantastic matches, especially with the CMLL stars in Junior Tag League who would have great chemistry with
  • If they ever allow him to have a match with Ospreay, it will tear down the house down
  • You can expect him to always keep his headband and bandana around his neck throughout every match
  • Unfortunately, you probably won’t see him too often in New Japan (at least not yet). He will most likely just be brought in for tournaments and certain events, much like fellow BC OG member, Gino Gambino
  • Robbie will hopefully help New Japan expand into Australia more, which will open the door up for more Australian stars to get global exposure
  • Eagles and Ishimori will most likely finish in the top half of the Junior Tag League
