Billy Gunn on a Possible WWE Return, Joining NJPW, Shaving X-Pac’s Eyebrows

Former WWE Superstar Billy Gun recently joined former fellow DX member X-Pac’s podcast X-Pac 1,2,360, and you can check out the highlights here:

X-Pac on Scott Hall’s recent relapse incident:

“Here’s the thing. The more time you have behind you of being healthy, and I don’t like to use the word clean, but you know of just being healthy and doing the right thing, the easier it is when you fall to pick yourself back up. Scott, myself, guys like Billy [Gunn], we know how to pick ourselves back up. So that’s what Scott did and everything will be fine.”

Billy Gunn on his WWE tryout:

“They watched us work, we went into the office and this is when Vince would still kind of talk to you when you’re getting hired. Me and Bart went in there and Vince said, hey we liked what we saw, we’d like to bring you in, and I said to Vince, well Vince I have a job during the week. Can I just do this on the weekend? And he laughed at me and then goes, no I think you’ll be alright.”

On who shaved X-Pac’s eyebrows:

“Alright so we’re gonna let the cat out of the bag here on your podcast. I feel that this is the time and place, and I’m not by any means disrespecting him, but Curt [Hennig] did it. But the thing was that he was such a master at stuff that he literally did it, looked at us and goes, hey I’m gonna put this on you and you guys take it, OK? OK!”

On talks with New Japan Pro Wrestling:

“Let’s just put it this way. I am in talks with New Japan. They have this big tag tournament every year, from the middle of November to the middle of December. So they called me and asked if I would like to do it, and of course I jumped at it because there’s not a lot of stuff that I haven’t done in 27 years of working in this industry, most of them in WWE.”

On a possible WWE return:

“Well I don’t know about that. I started with WWE, I got fired once and came back, got fired, came back, so now I’m fired again. So if you’re asking me, would I like to? Yes, I would love to, because I love to coach. And I love being at the Performance Center.”
