AEW Massive Offer To Triple H Revealed

Degeneration-X has been one of the legendary factions in WWE. The iconic faction celebrated its 25th anniversary with Triple H, Shawn Michaels, X-Pac, and Road Dogg all making appearances. However, another member of the group, Billy Gunn, was not present owing to his contract with AEW. The faction went on to close the October 10th edition of WWE Monday Night RAW. Reports have now emerged what AEW President Tony Khan has asked in return of Billy Gunn’s possible appearance in WWE.



Tony Khan mentioned his conditions

It was reported that WWE did toss around the idea of trying to get Gunn for the reunion, but that didn’t happen. Road Dogg, Gunn’s longtime tag team partner, stated on his podcast that Gunn wanted to make the appearance, and it broke both of their hearts that it didn’t happen. He added that Triple H, Michaels, and Waltman weren’t happy Gunn didn’t get to appear either.

In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that there were “meaningful talks” between WWE and AEW about having Gunn appear on the show. Money being exchanged wasn’t a factor, as WWE never offered money, nor did AEW President Tony Khan ask for it.

Instead, it was noted that:

“Khan agreed to let him do to the show, but on the air, they would have to mention he’s from AEW, or that AEW allowed him to appear or some wording, but there had to be one mention that in some form he works for AEW, just as WWE already did when they got Mickie James for the Royal Rumble this past year.”

The report added that WWE stalled when answering Khan and would not agree to the terms at the last minute. wrote, “WWE had went as far as to prepare travel in Billy Gunn’s name, thinking that it was a real possibility. One of the possible solutions we’re told was a lower third graphic with an AEW logo, but WWE didn’t seem too keen on making that a reality.”
