Billy Gunn On Being Released From WWE In 2015

WWE
Former WWE star and trainer Billy Gunn recently spoke with Chris Featherstone for Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard website. Here are the highlights.

On being released from WWE in 2015 for reportedly using PEDs and not informing WWE of  powerlifting meets he was competing in:

“The first thing I want to make clear is the powerlifting meet that I went to. I wasn’t on it to win that powerlifting contest because it was me against me anyway. I popped on their test, because I was over their test limit. Let’s face it: I’m 52 years old. I have my [prescription] from the doctor, but it was the way it all came out is what they had to do. I don’t blame them at all, and I’m going to take every single bit of it because it wasn’t fair to NXT for what Hunter had done for the company. What he’s done with that brand is amazing. [WWE] had to do what they had to do. They did it, and I’m perfectly fine with it, and hopefully one day they’ll hire me back because I feel I was a pretty good coach. It’s just the way it all came out. It wasn’t anything that WWE did; they [had] to do what they did, and I feel like I let the NXT kids down. I never, ever wanted to do that. Ever. So I’ll take that.”

On being involved in the DX and NWO angle at WrestleMania 31

“You’re really looking for moments. It is a Sting moment, because it’s the first WrestleMania he’s ever been in and he’s wrestling Hunter. But then again, from a company standpoint, how do we get the most out of this because our fanbase is not really a Sting fanbase? Sting being there is a big moment, but when you have DX and nWo behind that, it makes a little bigger in the majority of the people’s eyes. I’m not meaning to downplay Sting in any moment, but the way I look at it, it was just a bigger moment at a WrestleMania, rather than just that single moment.”

    “because our fanbase is not really a Sting fanbase?” They truly do believe that no-one watches wrestling outside of WWE don’t they. How arrogant.

    See Chyna, this is how you apologise and stay in good standing after being fired. Take responsibility, be respectful. Do not call the head of the company a paedophile, a woman beater and sleep with his best friend on camera and sell the film and do more drugs than Kieth Richards and Jimi Hendrix.
