During all the excitement regarding All Elite Wrestling and their upcoming ‘Double Or Nothing’ event, a big name was attached to the company. Billy Gunn.
It was announced that he would be joining AEW as their first and, for now, only producer. Cody announced the news via a video uploaded to AEW’s official Twitter account.
Since then, Gunn has made an appearance on Busted Open Radio. During his discussion on the show, he commented on his role within AEW, and what he hopes he can achieve and do for the company.
“I Might Be Talent Too, Which Is OK With Me”
“I don’t know a lot about what’s going on,” he admitted. “I know I’m the only producer they have right now, so my role as of right now is just agent. I might work a little bit, also. I might be talent too, which is OK with me.
I work everywhere else; I might as well work [wrestle] for the company that I work for. I wish I could answer that. I really don’t know because, like I said, this literally just happened this week. We’re still in the process of trying to get things together, so as soon as I know more, I’ll be able to speak on that a little bit more.”
Billy Gunn competing inside of an AEW ring? It’s not out of the realms of possibility. Both Billy and his son, Austin Gunn, were a part of the Over Budget Battle Royal at the historic ‘All In’ event last August, after all.
But is Billy Gunn competing in AEW what you would want to see, or do you feel he will bring more to the company within his producer role?
