Tonight’s edition of WWE Raw takes place in Ontario, CA, and while crowds of fans waiting outside the arena is nothing new, there are some surprising faces outside the arena tonight: Bullet Club.
Bullet Club, New Japan Pro Wrestling’s millennial version of nWo and D-Generation X, has pulled another trick out of their forefathers’ playbook: invading the competition’s show. Cody Rhodes, the Young Bucks and Adam “Hangman” Page are storming the front lines of WWE’s show, cracking jokes about papered tickets and low interest much like Triple H did all those years ago.

While this is more than likely a stunt for the Young Bucks’ popular YouTube show, Being the Elite, and will have no bearing on WWE programming, it does add an extra level of interest to an episode of Raw that will try to make sense of a deflating pay-per-view event in No Mercy.
