There has been a big presence missing in Bullet Club in the form of Hikuleo.
The Tongan big man has been out of action since March of last year with a knee injury, last competing alongside Kota Ibushi, Chase Owens and Yujiro Takahashi at a New Japan show in Nagoya. In his absence, there has been a major fracture in Bullet Club that hasn't seen him take part.
Hikuleo is the brother of Tonga Loa and Tama Tonga, and Fightful reached out to "The Good Guy" for an update on the big man, which he kindly obliged.
Very well, he’ll be returning next month— 'Good Guy' Tama Tonga (@Tama_Tonga) January 16, 2019
If the 6-foot-8 son of Haku does return next month, he'll have missed 11 months of action early in his career and will see a new look Bullet Club that features new members "Switchblade" Jay White, "Bone Soldier" Taiji Ishimori, Robbie Eagles, Jado and Gedo along with the familiar faces of Tonga Loa, Tama Tonga, Bad Luck Fale, Takahashi and Chase Owens.
