Orphaned references in Bullet Club[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Bullet Club's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "DDT":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 16:24, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Comments[edit]

  1. "professional wrestling stable" the term stable should not be used in the lead as it is jargon.
  2. Same with "promotion", the lead should be for people who don't know anything about professional wrestling and should not have jargon.
  3. the storyline was tweaked to them coming together "tweaked" is unencyclopedic, and the sentence is slightly confusing.
  4. The acronym "nWo" needs to be defined, as do all the three letter acronyms in "(like former NJPW stables C.T.U., G.B.H. and nWo)".
  5. though most of his matches featured outside interference from the rest of the Bullet Club.[36][37][38][39][40][41] WP:OVERCITE and possibly WP:OR as I'm guessing the large number of sources is to support the use of "most".
  6. I feel similarly about this sentence: On June 9, Devitt advanced to the finals of the tournament after defeating Kenny Omega in his semifinal match, again with help from Bullet Club.[42][43][44] though it seems less like WP:OR but this whole section could benefit from citation bundling.
  7. The "Under Prince Devitt's leadership (2013–2014)" section is far too long and could be summarized more. It does not need to be an exhaustive list of every match, just the most notable ones.
  8. The same for "Rebirth and championship dominance (2014–present)". The sections are far too large. If you don't think you can remove anything, breaking them up into subsections would help, but as it stands it's just two large intimidating blocks of text. I guess the question to be asking is, what do these events have to do with "bullet club" rather then the individual wrestlers or pairings? I mean, I know nothing about Pro Wrestling so maybe it's more than I know, but I'm not sure how much the events are aspects of the stable rather than aspects of the wrestlers, especially when it lists X wrestler won/defended Y title at Z time. Where the only connection is that X is part of bullet club.
  9. I don't know what the section "In wrestling" is. The title should be more clear as it doesn't give me an idea of what the content will be.
  10. The "In wrestling" section text also suffers from WP:OVERCITE but it's an optional thing to be dealt with as in this instance it doesn't harm readability.
  • Most of the sources are in Japanese, so I'm going to assume good faith and trust they are reliable.
  • I also am unsure of how writing about fiction applies in this case because most (all?) of this seems to be, as the article said, a storyline. I guess it would be similar to coverage of reality shows as the events invariably happened but they were part of storylines. I'll ask a couple people for input on this issue.
  • @Wugapodes: - as a member of WP:PW, I assure you it's utterly natural for the majority of this article to be about the group's storylines. starship.paint ~ KO 02:02, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
  • That's what I thought. I looked through a couple other articles and the project's style guide before passing and realized that it was more common than I expected. Good to know for next time, and for other reviewers who ever ask about it. Thanks for the input! Wugapodes (talk) 02:26, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Results[edit]

On Hold for 7 days pending changes with possible extensions depending on progress. Wugapodes (talk) 04:02, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Listed I think that the biggest hurdle for the article is the number of citations. I'd recommend a thorough look through to see what citations can be bundled, which ones are truly necessary per WP:CITE. Also, while the images are in line with WP:WIAGA, I think that a number of images could be cut down. Further, if you plan to seek FA status, I think the prose will need to be tightened up a lot. While it's clear, concise, and focused, I think that the quality of it could be enhanced. I would recommend a WP:Peer review. Congrats, and happy editing! Wugapodes (talk) 21:56, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

House of Bullets[edit]

Has this phrase used as an alternate name for BC turned up enough to warrant mention? Heard it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZstehrfaxvI&t=1m5s by the announcer and it's catchy but I haven't watched much NJPW so I don't know if it has appeared at other times. 184.145.18.50 (talk) 15:00, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Haven't seen/heard it outside of that one mention. Don't think it's enough. リボン・サルミネン (Ribbon Salminen)(ZOOM) 15:54, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Bullet League and Bullet Parade[edit]

Should we mention this in the background as a tentative name for the group Prince Devitt considered? He mentions this as Finn Balor in an interview with Chris Jericho at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e62jah03ehs&t=3m5s "there was Bullet Parade, Bullet League and bullet club" and Jericho quips "Bullet Boys" in response. 184.145.18.50 (talk) 15:29, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Added. リボン・サルミネン (Ribbon Salminen)(ZOOM) 15:54, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Gallows & Anderson in WWE[edit]

It should not be mentionned that they are Bullet Club if they are not named this way in WWE, for the moment.207.253.179.213 (talk) 04:44, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Their WWE stuff doesn't belong on this article at all. They're not Bullet Club anymore. リボン・サルミネン (Ribbon Salminen)(ZOOM) 13:17, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Then I believe the Gallows and Gun redirect to the Bullet Club page should be removed for a separate history of Gallows and Anderson's tag team career across New Japan, independent scene, and now WWE.--Brody's Ghost (talk) 04:45, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
Done. See Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows. リボン・サルミネン (Ribbon Salminen)(ZOOM) 14:34, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

The cross by Tanga Roa's name[edit]

I have seen this numerous times. What is it for? Should we remove it? Kirantheray (talk) 02:29, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

It's a dagger. It's used to indicate a footnote. リボン・サルミネン (Ribbon Salminen)(ZOOM) 11:47, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
