Billy Gunn was recently inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as a member of D-Generation X.
The current All Elite Wrestling Producer recently spoke with Sportskeeda about his entire career and whether or not we will see him wrestle for AEW. Below are some highlights:
Billy Gunn on finding out about DX’s Hall of Fame induction:
“Well, one, I was in the middle of the ocean on a boat enjoying myself. Then they called said that. No, haha it was cool. I mean, my youngest son was with me, my Wife was with me, and some of my friends. We were literally out in the middle of the ocean. We went on a cruise for my Wife’s birthday. They had to tell me on Sunday because when I go on vacation the phone is the last thing I have. It’s buried in my bag somewhere. We have animals in our house, so my Wife keeps hers on in case something happens they need to get a hold of her.
Road Dogg was trying to call her to tell me because it was Sunday and they wanted to announce it Monday, so they wanted to make sure I knew before they announced it. It was a mad scramble to get me to know that they were doing it. It’s really cool, and it will be even cooler once we’re there. Just to hear the people erupt when we come out it’s going to be the coolest part.”
Billy Gunn on his 2014 comeback alongside the Road Dogg:
“Yeah, that was crazy. Really, our job there was to help the Usos and help the tag team division there. It seemed like it very lulled. One, they don’t put any effort into them. They put zero efforts in tags. We tried to change that. I thought we did. Then it kind of got into a lull again.
Really we were just brought back as a feel-good moment. Then for some unknown Godly reason, somebody thought it was a good idea to put the tag titles on us, and then it was just to push The Usos. They were already good, but they just needed a little bit of a shove. The Road Warriors did it for us, and then we did it for them (The Usos). When you know your role and go in and do your job like your supposed to everything works out great.”
Billy Gunn on whether or not he will wrestle for AEW:
“Yeah, I’ll probably do a little something. I’ll just crack out at the big shows. So when I work for them, I’ll just work the big shows.”
