Former WWE Superstar Billy Gunn is going on a new venture with AEW (All Elite Wrestling). This is a company spearheaded by President Tony Khan, and he has big plans for the promotion.
AEW’s first-ever show is set to take place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 25th. The pay-per-view event will be called “Double Or Nothing.”
Currently under contract with the promotion includes Cody, Brandi Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Chris Jericho, PAC (formerly known as Neville in WWE), Britt Baker, MJF, Joey Janela, Penelope Ford, Frankie Kazarian, Christopher Daniels, and Scorpio Sky.
Gunn was a recent guest on Busted Open Radio where he opened up about his new role with the upstart All Elite Wrestling.
“I don’t know a lot about what’s going on. 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 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.”
