Billy Gunn is a legend in the professional wrestling industry. I doubt if anyone negates that. He had an incredible run in WWE, especially as part of the tag team the New Age Outlaws, alongside the “Road Dogg” Jesse James, and together, they were undoubtedly integral parts of the DX faction, and of course, both are now Hall of Fame members, and because of their involvement in said faction.
Billy Gunn joined up with AEW after a few years of being released from his contract with WWE…and not one to steer clear of up-start wrestling promotions, as it was in the 2000s, that he had a pretty good run with TNA, but now his sons, who look so much like him, both decided to give professional wrestling a go, and what a go it has certainly been so far.
We haven’t seen all that much of the perfectly-named Gunn Club on Dynamite or Rampage, but they recently turned heel – they turning on Paul Wight in glorious heel fashion and very reminiscent of the Billy Gunn of old – and QT Marshall believes that this may be the best thing for the sons of legend, Billy Gunn. QT Marshall gave his thoughts on the faction and what fans can expect moving forward. It was as he spoke with Wrestling Inc Daily that he talked about this topic amongst other interesting points of importance. On the Gunn Club and what fans can expect, he said:
“I’ve seen them as heels. They just turned heel. I think fans are in for a real treat when they actually start going…They have a lot of personality, especially Austin. And Colten is a natural athlete. It’s in the blood.”via Wrestling Inc
So he most definitely has high hopes for the offspring of the legendary Billy Gunn (as do I), and as he states, it’s in their blood for sure.
Bryan Danielson is Daniel Garcia’s Dream Opponent
It would seem that the young and talented Daniel Garcia has many reasons to be excited these days. His signing with AEW officially has finally come to light and the plethora of in-ring legends he can now face has risen considerably since the acquisitions of CM Punk, Adam Cole and particularly Bryan Danielson. He already got to face Punk, and now he has his sights set on yet another legend of the squared circle.
It was while speaking to Ron Alba of One-On-One, that Garcia laid it all bare…
“He’s maybe my favorite wrestler of all-time, at least top three. He’s somebody who I’ve studied for years, even before I knew that I was studying wrestling, just by watching him. I would pick up little nuances that he does. I feel like our wrestling styles aren’t as similar as some people like to say they are, but I feel like our… the little things that we do, are a lot more similar than a lot of people would like to notice…I feel like you see a lot of technical wrestlers and a lot of meat and potato wrestlers on TV when you grow up, and they’re all presented in a very specific way. And they’re all kind of portrayed the same. And I wanted to portray that in a different way. In a more way that’s personable to a wider audience, and something that’s not so robotic. Something that feels very real, and just happens to be a technical wrestler.”via One-On-One /cultaholic.com (Transcription)
This is definitely a match worth waiting for and will be something very special to see for sure.
