New Japan Pro Wrestling's version of WrestleMania - Wrestle Kingdom 12 - is now in the books and some spectacular action was on show.

For UK and U.S. fans not overly familiar with the product, names like Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, the UK's Marty Scurll and Will Ospreay and Cody Rhodes all featured on the pay-per-view.

The Alpha Vs Omega match between Jericho and Omega drew a lot of the headlines and after the Winnipeg natives did battle for just shy of 35 minutes, it was the Bullet Club member Omega who came out on top in a match full of special moments.

However, one man that could be argued as the leader of the Bullet Club right now is Rhodes, a man that has truly rebuilt his name since leaving the WWE.

The son of the famous American Dream, Dusty Rhodes, had a match with NJPW favourite Kota Ibushi on the show and they had a very entertaining 15-minute dual.

However, there was one moment in the match has really got Twitter talking.

Rhodes had Ibushi on the apron late in the match and in what looks a spectacular move, Rhodes delivered his finishing move 'Cross-Rhodes' to the floor and Ibushi took a seriously nasty bump. Take a look at the video below:

Many fans have been pining for Rhodes to return to the WWE now that he has become a global star outside the company and he has fully shaken the Stardust gimmick.

However, the man himself remains cautious on the idea, saying: "I'm always been told that the revolving door - you know, it's a tricky question because there were a lot of genuinely large issues for me personally that it would be hypocritical for me to just go back, they would need to be fixed."


However, while he enjoys the way the company honours his late father - like they have with the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic - he says it's disappointing he cannot be apart of it.

“It's not just strange for me, it's strange for them. Believe me, they're various texts back and forth about it. I think one of the things that were so disappointing for me at the end of the time in WWE was simply that people had forgotten what I was doing prior to Stardust."
