Billy Gunn Believes The AEW Era Will Be Similar To The Attitude Era


AEW producer, Billy Gunn recently spoke about the company and how he believes this era will be similar to the Attitude Era. Below are some highlights with a H/T to for the transcriptions.

On being in a similar role to Road Dogg:

“I’d like to say that he’s in a little bit higher position than I am because he’s running a whole division… But it’s cool how our paths crossed similarly but in different companies,” stated Gunn.

On the new era being similar to the Attitude Era:

“I think it’s gonna be just as good,” said Gunn. “At this stage of my career…it’s super neat to see a company like this come along that I get to be a part of. It’s gonna be so new and fresh and fun. You can’t really compare anything to the Attitude Era, I don’t think. Wrestling goes in phases – you had the 80s then the 90s. You had the Attitude Era now you have the undisputed/PG era.

“We’re not in that element – we’re in our own realm. It’s gonna be exciting, fun and refreshing. People are gonna dig it and love everything about it.”

On the importance of freedom:

“The key word will be freedom. You have freedom to do what you do. That’s what we had back in the day. I didn’t have people writing stuff for me. I didn’t have people telling me what I can and cannot do. Telling me which moves I can and cannot do.”
