Billy Gunn doesn't see why he couldn't work for AEW in both roles.
At the All Elite Wrestling press conference earlier this month, a plethora of news concerning the start-up company was unveiled to the wrestling world and after two weeks having gone by, mainstream media outlets such as the New York Post and ESPN are covering the story that is All Elite Wrestling. A list of talents have been announced to be a part of the All Elite Wrestling roster and also, former WWF Intercontinental Champion Billy Gunn was assigned to a producer role.
Billy Gunn joined Busted Open Radio a few days after the All Elite Wrestling press conference and was asked about his role. Billy shared that he did not know how to explain what his role is because there was no certain definition of it at the time of the interview but he did state that he would not mind working for AEW as a talent on top of being a producer.
"This kind of thing is why I got into this business in the first place" @RealBillyGunn talks to @TheMattCamp & @bullyray5150 about Tuesday's @AEWrestling rally & what his role with #AEW will be pic.twitter.com/dKhgfNT2VS— SiriusXM Busted Open (@BustedOpenRadio) January 11, 2019
“I don’t know a lot of what’s going on. I know I’m the only producer that they have right now so my role as of right now is just agent." Billy said. "I might work a little bit. Also I might be talent too which is okay with me. I mean I work everywhere else, I might as well work for the company that I work for." Billy continued, "I wish I could answer that [What his role is]. I really don’t know, because like I said, this literally just happened this week. So we’re still in a process of trying to get things together so as soon as I know more then I’ll be able to speak on that a little bit more.”
