So, could Val have fit in with the group? I could see it going either way. On paper it makes a kind of sense, but the Val character was at times so much of a character I don't know if he could interact with the group well unless they tweaked it some.https://www.si.com/extra-mustard/2017/05/24/sean-waltman-bullet-club-cm-punk-val-venis
Waltman was a firsthand witness to the over-expansion of the NWO, and he learned from that experience. He recalled a situation in WWE when head writer Vince Russo wanted to add Val Venis into DX, yet the group steadfastly refused.
“Russo wanted to put Val Venis in DX, but we said no,” said Waltman. “We stuck to our guns because he wasn’t right for DX. So, for Bullet Club, if New Japan or Ring of Honor wants Bullet Club to do something they don’t want to do, Bullet Club needs to remember this is their creation and their baby. Stick to your guns. If you feel like someone is not right, then don’t let it be done.”
