Speaking with Chris Van Vliet on "Insight," Gunn spoke about the new talent that's appeared on AEW television throughout 2024 thus far, and named Will Ospreay as the man he wants to retire him in his final match. 


"I don't know what it is about that kid I love him, I tell everybody that's my retirement match," Gunn declared. "When I retire it's me and Will and he just said on some media scrum that he's in AEW to retire me, like his work really isn't me right, it's so opposite of me but I love him, he's good, he's very energetic, just the stuff he does is amazing he's so athletic and can do so much stuff but he has charisma with it and he and he's very good at that and I don't know, I just love that kid."
