Gunn recently had the following to say to Wrestling Inc. Managing Editor Nick Hausman on The Wrestling Inc. Daily about his involvement in an upcoming WWE – A&E DX documentary, possibly for the Legends series.
“I don’t know if I can plug it, but there’s a DX documentary coming out. I don’t know if I am supposed to say that, but I guess it’s too late now. Tony is really good about that, he’s not that kind of guy, he really isn’t. He’s a great guy to work for,” Billy stated. “They approached me, and of course, I went straight to him and everything that they did, it was okay.
“It’s an A&E thing, not really a WWE thing, so I don’t say it’s that, it’s for A&E because that was what they told me. It was all run through us so it’s not like I did anything behind anyone’s back. But, it’ll be pretty cool, I think it’s more of a look into what we are doing now. Of course, they’re going to talk about what we did.
“But they literally spent all day, they came and filmed me and the boys working out. Everything I do is for the boys, it’s more about getting them TV exposure. So we did that and did a sit-down interview, and it was more about what my life is now and stuff like that. So, it’ll be pretty interesting.”
