All Elite Wrestling wrestler, billy gunnwas undoubtedly the great absence of the meeting that D-Generation X starred in the premiere of the new season of Raw on October 10, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the faction. Gunn spoke to Sports Illustrated on the subject, and assured that he would have loved to participate but that he understood AEW’s position.
“Of course, I would have liked to be there, but I understand that I work for another companyGunn said. “It was a collective decision. I don’t hold it against anyone. I’m not mad about it. We are two separate companies and it just couldn’t be done.”
Gunn also had time to talk about The AcclaimedMax Caster and Anthony Bowens, a team with whom he works at AEW and with whom considers having a similar connection to the one he had with the members of DX:
“We hit it off really well. We didn’t try to fight each other. DX was so good because everyone knew their place and none of us were trying to ‘steal’ someone else’s position. It’s the same here. We fit in really well on The Acclaimed and we’re focused on doing what’s best for the team. The goal is to make this the best it can be, and I’m here to help you be the best you can be. I want them to be as successful as I was.“.

Although Meltzer also pointed out that for a moment the negotiations seemed to be on the right track and WWE came to prepare some issues so that Gunn could travel to New York, where Monday Night Raw took place.
