Billy Gunn wasted no time getting back on TV in the WWE. He was part of the DX reunion that kicked off the 1000th episode of Monday Night Raw. Not exactly a bad way to celebrate your one night return to the company.
Billy Gunn was a big part of DX in its heyday. He became a very big star during his time in the company before he took his talents to the other wrestling company in Florida. This return is nice to see because Gunn has been trying to get back in the company for a while. His former partner Road Dogg has been back for a bit so it was only a matter of time before Gunn came back.
This was just the first of many big returns to come on Monday. The company is going to go all out to celebrate its first 1000 episodes of existence. There are going to be huge returns and big moments. There are supposed to be a couple big angles that start Monday that will push the company through the summer and fall.
It is great as a wrestling fan who grew up in the 90s to see guys like this return. DX was part of the golden age of wrestling for that generation and Billy Gunn helped push the company into the Attitude Era.
The return of Billy Gunn was great, but a match down the road would be the perfect send off for the former champion.
