In mid-February, rumored reports of King Barrett not signing a contract extension with WWE hit the Internet, seemingly counting down his remaining days with the company.

“I unexpectedly received a lot of very nice messages from people today. Thank you to everyone who took the time to write some kind words,” Barrett took to his Twitter account to write to fans at the time. “I’ll comment further at a more appropriate time, but for now I’m 100 percent focused on doing my job for @WWE.”

With that, Barrett kept on chugging, appearing at Fastlane that month, Roadblock in March, WrestleMania 32 this past Sunday night and every Monday Night Raw in between.

However, perhaps his League of Nations brethren kicking him out of the faction last night marked the beginning of the end of his WWE career.

If this is truly it, the question is: where is Barrett headed to next if he’s going to continue his pro-wrestling career?

Well, WrestlingInc.com spotted a suggestion for the King’s next landing spot.

The Young Bucks are a tag team in the Bullet Club of New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW). What’s the Bullet Club, you ask? It’s a faction within NJPW that keeps its ears close to what’s happening overseas in pro-wrestling in the United States. In fact, early into its conception just three years ago, members of the Bullet Club clique even emulated the New World Order’s “too sweet” hand gesture. Cody Hall, the son of nWo member and WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall, is even a current member of the Bullet Club.

Want more connecting the dots from the Japanese faction to WWE? Well, AJ Styles, who was just declared the No. 1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight championship, joined the Bullet Club two years ago in NJPW before leaving the promotion to sign with the leader in sports entertainment.

Would Barrett consider the Young Bucks’ offer? Well, if he would consider NJPW over Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling, then the Japanese promotion would be getting a wrestler with seemingly all the tools to take over, whether it’s his in-ring acumen, brash temperament or microphone swagger.

Barrett has that “it” factor. Let’s see if he takes “it” to the Bullet Club.
