As we reported earlier here on eWn, Billy Gunn was not part of the recent DX reunion that took place on RAW. Of course, Gunn is under contract with All Elite Wrestling (AEW).

It was reported by Dave Meltzer that AEW President Tony Khan had agreed to let Gunn appear on the show but requested that WWE mention Gunn working for AEW live on the air, which WWE ultimately denied. He wrote,

“Khan agreed to let him do to the show but on the air they would have to mention he’s from AEW, or that AEW allowed him to appear or some wording, but there had to be one mention that in some form he works for AEW, just as WWE already did when they got Mickie James for the Royal Rumble this past year. WWE stalled on the yes or no, and then at the last minute would not agree to it.”

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Mr. Ass revealed that he would love to have been a part of it, but he also understands that he works for a different company these days and knows why it didn’t come to fruition.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On the ‘Scissor Me, Daddy’ catchphrase: “Who knew this would become a phenomenon? This scissoring thing, that’s the wrestling business. You can’t pick and choose what people are going to be into. The ‘Scissor Me Daddy Ass’ shirt, at first people didn’t want them to be made. Now we can’t stop selling them.”

On his dynamic with The Acclaimed: “We jell so well together. We’re not trying to fight each other. DX was so good because everybody knew their spot and none of us were trying to jockey for position. It’s the same here. We fit together in The Acclaimed, and we’re focused on doing the best thing collectively for the group. The goal is to make this the best this can be, and I’m here to help them be the best they can be. I want them to have the same success I had.”

On not being part of the DX reunion on RAW: “Of course, I would have liked to have been there, but I understand that I work for another company. It was a collective decision. I’m not putting it on anyone. I’m not sour about it. We’re two separate companies, and it just didn’t work out.”

On his sons’ progress in AEW: “I get to train with my boys, work with them, and watch them grow — I can’t put into words how cool that is. I love where they’re going now and what they’re doing. They need this time away from me to separate and grow. And they always ask my opinion. I like to hear their side of it first, then share mine. For me, it’s amazing.”
