AEW star and WWE Hall of Famer Billy Gunn was recently interviewed by the Highspots Virtual Gimmick Table as he spoke about working with his sons, Austin and Colten, as part of the Gunn Club. Billy referred to working with his boys as a “career highlight”.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On working with his sons in the Gunn Club: “This goes up there with anything that I’ve done. Like it out trumps everything. I mean, when you get to start with them, or when they get to start with me or however that wording goes, and watch them get better and better every time they get in the ring, and be around that and have some influence over that is amazing. Like that’s probably why I can retire now and be, not that I wouldn’t have been before, but now there’s nothing else I need to do in this business because that is the ultimate. If you get to work with your kids in a profession that I love to do, then it’s, that’s it. It’s over.”
On the teams who helped him when he was in the Smoking Gunns: “The Headshrinkers. Sam and Junior. They were amazing. They were so good to us. There were some (others), but they’re the ones I remember the most because they taught me and Bart the most when we were there because we had to work them so much when we first got there.
“We were young kids. Like I was a kid at one time, a swole kid. Then it was just sitting back, listening, keep your mouth shut, don’t get involved, and stuff, so it was just more than. But Sam and Junior have always been awesome. Headshrinkers, one of my top people. And Ron and Don Harris of course. They started me in. I just saw them and I love them to death. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be standing where I am today.”
