WWE Hall of Famer and DX member Road Dogg has commented on the recent reunion of the iconic faction, including the absence of Billy Gunn.
D-Generation X reunited to celebrate 25 years of the group on the October 10th edition of WWE Raw. The reunion featured members Triple H, Shawn Michaels, X-Pac and Road Dogg. Noticeable by his absence was Billy Gunn, who is currently signed to All Elite Wrestling.
In regards to the reunion, Road Dogg said the following on the Oh… You Didn’t Know podcast:
“It broke my heart, and I believe it broke his too. In all actuality, Hunter [Triple H] was not happy about it either. Shawn and X-Pac weren’t either. We wanted the band, all that we could get back together. Chyna is there in spirit. That didn’t happen.
From what I understand, and I’m not in those inner circles anymore, and for my sanity rightfully so and thankful. I don’t know the exact reason, but I was told everything that we could do was done, and we couldn’t come together.
During the day prior, I texted him, ‘Hey, are you going to be able to make it? Have you found out any answers yet?’ He said, ‘Yes, I’m in.’ I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s awesome.’ Literally, before I landed at home, I found out he was not in. I texted him back and he wasn’t happy either. It just didn’t work, no matter what. I understand. Whatever.
Road Dogg would also reference the rivalry between WWE and AEW, stating that Billy Gunn not being able to attend felt like a ripoff.
I understand we’re [AEW and WWE] not huge fans of each other from a business standpoint. It was a big deal, and I feel like he got ripped off and didn’t live it with us. I’m sorry for that. I know he is too,”
