Fans loved last week's "shoot" edition of "The Gunn Show" with former WWE and TNA superstar Billy Gunn and it's time for round two! If you missed part one, visit youtube.com/vegasfueltv to find it. In this week's episode, Billy continues to pull no punches on issues like TNA and how it compares to WWE, whether fans consider the NAO when they think of D-Generation X, why they were so good at putting others over (ex: The Rock) and much more. Check out some of these highlights:
On who fans think of when they remember DX: "Honestly, I think it's Shawn and Hunter...yeah, you're right, me, Bryan [Road Dogg], X-Pac, we were complete degenerates, to the word...but I think when you think of it all around, from a fan's perspective, DX is Shawn and Hunter because we were short-lived...every time they bring DX back around, which is helping, it's always Shawn and Hunter. It's never us. Even the book ["Unauthorized History of DX"] just kind of mentioned us in there..it was like a two-paragraph, 'Oh yeah, Brian and Billy, they were in there too', so...I get it. They kind of started it, we made it really good, and then they still finish it off."
On putting over so many stars, like The Rock and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin: "The reason me and Brian put all these guys over, and took their finishes...one, we loved it. Two, we were very good at it. Three, we were probably the best in the whole locker room that could get it done. You know, it wouldn't do any good if Barry Horowitz and whoever came out and did it...the New Age Outlaws, by themselves, were over, and I don't mean to say all this just because I was a part of that..I'm just stating what I feel is right."
Billy talks more about the tag team division and the fact WWE just doesn't care about it, and of course, bringing back the New Age Outlaws. He also gives his thoughts on the Internet Wrestling Community, the difference between working for WWE versus TNA, and more!
