Again this show had far far to many mult man tag matches but the two co main event matches and what happened after made it worth sitting through 3 hours of wrestling. It was one of the worst nights in Bullet Club history as The Bucks lost the IWGP Junior Tag Titles and Omega lost the US title but it was the shocking sciences after the main event that had left every fan speechless. Please check out the video clip below to find out what happened. All I will say is so Kenny is out of the Bullet Club, What is next for The Cleaner, many fans are praying that he turns up in WWE at the Rumble tonight (with this being very similar to the way AJ Styles, Finn Balor and Adam Cole were kicked out then turned up in WWE) but with him having singed a contract with NJPW till 2019 I doubt that will happen although the Mark inside me would freak out if he did appear. It seems as though he will form an alliance with Ibushi once again as these former partners had a very emotional embrace to end the show. What about the rest of The Bullet Club that were not involved in this, did they know and let  it happen or are they as surprised as us and will they have to decide to follow Cody or go out on their own ? I have never wanted to see the next episode of Being The Elite more than I do right now so we can find out more as to what the story is with this whole ordeal.

This did overshadow the fact two titles changed hands and that this was a far better show than the night previously while I would of still preferred less tag matches it was very good.
