Chase Owens of The Bullet Club has re-signed with NJPW!
In case you missed it, earlier today it was reported that the reigning IWGP United States Champion Juice Robinson has re-signed with New Japan Pro Wrestling, reportedly on a three year contract (see the story here).
Of course this comes after the promotion lost out on Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks and ‘Hangman’ Adam Page to the upstart All Elite Wrestling, as well as the news that KUSHIDA will be moving on “overseas” and Kenny Omega officially announcing his departure from the company (find more on that here). However it does look like New Japan Pro Wrestling has locked down another one of their talents today.
Via Twitter, The Bullet Club’s Chase Owens announced the following:
Happy to announce I have signed contract with njpw. #packagedrivereveryone2019

Owens has been seemingly on the outs with Bullet Club since the group was taken over by The Guerrillas Of Destiny and then ‘Switchblade’ Jay White, but reaffirmed his alliance with the group at New Year Dash!! this past weekend. The 28-year old, 11-year veteran has been with New Japan Pro Wrestling since 2014, joining Bullet Club in October 2015.
Lastly, it should be noted that details on the deal are not known at this time.
