Bruce Prichard has praised an AEW star for never seeing him out of shape.
During his prime, Billy Gunn was considered a tag team specialist with his partnership with Road Dogg as The New Age Outlaws being one of the premier duos during the late 90s.
Besides his tag team proficiency, Gunn was also known for his imposing stature.
On a recent episode of “Something to Wrestle” podcast, Bruce Prichard discussed Billy Gunn’s size being undersold by fans. He said:
“Billy is probably one of the most deceptive big men in wrestling history. Go stand next to him, he’s huge! I’ve never even seen him out of shape.”
Despite his stature, Gunn never reached the main event level as a singles star in WWE. Prichard continued on to state that he felt his lack of singles success being a matter of circumstances, saying:
“Billy had asthma and he couldn’t go for a long period of time in a match … but I think he and Road Dogg were one of the greatest tag teams of all time. [in a tag team] Billy could come in spurts.”
Billy Gunn currently works for AEW and is associated with former AEW World Tag Team Champions Max Caster and Anthony Bowens of The Acclaimed.
