The History Of The Golden Lovers: Explaining The Tag Team Reunion That Could Break The Bullet Club

New Japan Pro Wrestling

The last weekend of January 2018 was huge for pro wrestling, with NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia and the Royal Rumble for WWE, and New Beginning in Sapporo for New Japan Pro Wrestling. The WWE stuff was awesome and thoroughly covered by With Spandex, but there’s something else important we need to tell you about:

Kota Ibushi and Kenny Omega, formerly the tag team known as Golden☆Lovers, have reunited, and love is real! This beautiful, angsty, confetti-ful moment may fit in a GIF, but it has over a decade of history. A rich history full of friendship, betrayal, and 450 splashes.
