Billy Gunn may no longer be with WWE, but he seems to be on good terms with the company, as he appeared on Raw a few months ago as part of the big 25th anniversary show.
It’s always good to see DX reunite on Raw, but with the show being simulcast from two different locations, Gunn explained to Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV why the segment felt rushed.
“Well you’re looking at the end of the show, they’re trying to go back and forth between two buildings. We’re in the Manhattan Center and of course everybody says they were getting mad but how do you spread all of that out? It’s the 25th anniversary, you want to go back to the place you started, but you can’t have all of the talent there, I don’t know if you’ve been there but it’s little. It was rushed a little bit, but it’s the end of the show and you’re trying to shove 200 talents into a 3 hour show. So yeah, a little rugged.”
Gunn also confirmed that he still gets paid royalties from WWE merchandise.
“I do. I do. Anything that has my name that I own on it. Yeah, I get a little bit. But I mean you’re talking like of a half a cent of a half of a cent but it’s still something.”
Billy Gunn has been part of some of WWE’s most successful tag teams, but he’s best known for his run with Road Dogg as the New Age Outlaws.
When asked when he thinks the duo will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, he noted that he thinks an induction is still a few years away.
“I think they’ll put me and Brian in as strictly tag stuff, then it will be a few years and they’ll induct Hunter. When they induct Hunter, the next year it’ll be the DX thing.”
