Billy Gunn On Working With The Acclaimed, Kevin Nash Compares Kenny Omega To Sean Waltman


On a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, Billy Gunn discussed the experiences he’s had as part of The Acclaimed.

Gunn stated that he is at a point in his career where watching and having fun with Anthony Bowens and Max Caster is entirely satisfactory. He said,


“I think the whole buzz was created when we all got together. It wasn’t something that I just jumped into. My enjoyment now, I’ve had an awesome career, I have no complaints, no nothing, is just to watch them. I get to sit on the ring or next to it and just watch how excited they get or how much fun they’re having. I get to pretty much be player-coach on the side. Not that I need to coach them that much, but it’s just fun for me. That’s my enjoyment. From doing stuff with my kids to doing stuff with…my kids. Me and my wife have this thing, her kids are my real kids and my kids are my kids. It’s just having fun. During the show, you see so much wrestling and so many things that you can’t follow. You know when you hear their music, the place goes ballistic, and it’s because they know that they are about to interact, they’re about to have some fun, and they’re going to watch us do our thing, and they all get to participate. That’s the beauty about wrestling. If you catch that niche, and I’ve had a couple of them being as I’m a parent’s worst nightmare, is that it’s so electric, and people emotionally dig what we do. They get to interact, and when you get to interact with stars, how much better is it than that?”

On a recent edition of his “Kliq This” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash evaluated how Kenny Omega reminds him of his former nWo stablemate, Sean “X-Pac” Waltman. He said,

“Has anybody seen the match that Kenny Omega had with an 8-year-old Japanese girl? I watched it last night, and some of that s–t looked stiff. Kenny reminds me of Sean Waltman — where he can just have a match with anybody. I’ve always been a huge fan of Kenny’s because of the fact that Kenny would even do that match. [It] was another notch in why he’s my favorite [wrestler].”
