Billy Gunn doesn’t believe D-Generation X got good until he and Road Dogg joined the group in 1999.
“Daddy Ass” Billy Gunn was a recent guest on AEW Unrestricted with Tony Schiavone and Aubrey Edwards to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about his time in D-Generation X, Gunn made a bold claim about the faction as a whole and the importance of The New Age Outlaws in it.
“When the first two — I hate saying their names. I just hate saying their names. When Hunter and Shawn [Michaels] did it, it was something different,” Billy Gunn said. “It was something new. It was something not wrestling, but it’s on a wrestling show, but it caught on because of the personalities that those two had. Those two did the same thing.
“They fed off each other did some silly stuff. And were — oh, this is gonna hurt, but they were pretty good. I know, that hurts so bad. I’m gonna need a lot of counseling after this show. But I think when Shawn went away, and I’m gonna hold to this to this day, DX did not get good until me and Brian got on there till we were in it.
“Because now you have five people, and it’s a whole different dynamic. Now you have everybody and anybody that could do everything and anything. And everybody played their parts so good. And as a unit, we were just unstoppable and still doing the entertaining stuff. And just doing more wrestling stuff.”
