At the River City Wrestling Con last night, Teddy Long made a surprise appearance and introduced WWE Hall of Famer Billy Gunn’s son, Austin Gunn.
Austin arrived sporting a Ring of Honor t-shirt and reportedly declared that he has signed with the company. Fightful say they have been able to confirm that the company has indeed signed Austin.
Austin was seen at All In’s pre-show Zero Hour on 1 September, 2018 where he took part in the Over the Budget battle royal. The 24-year old has made appearances for MCW Pro, Ohio Valley Wrestling, etc since he started wrestling in 2017 after receiving training from his father, Bully Ray, and Devon Dudley.
It’s interesting that Austin has headed the other way instead of joining AEW where his father currently works. Billy Gunn is a coach and a producer for the new promotion, but ROH can be a great ground for gaining experience.
