• Billy Gunn Comments On When He Thinks New Age Outlaws Will Get Inducted Into The WWE Hall of Fame

During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, Old School WWF Veteran Billy Gunn talked about the DX reunion at RAW 25 being rushed, if he still gets royalties from DX merchandise, when he thinks the New Age Outlaws (himself and Road Dogg) will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and more.

Below are the highlights:

On the DX reunion at RAW 25 being rushed:

“Well you’re looking at the end of the show, they’re trying to go back and forth between two buildings. We’re in the Manhattan Center and of course everybody says they were getting mad but how do you spread all of that out? It’s the 25th anniversary, you want to go back to the place you started, but you can’t have all of the talent there, I don’t know if you’ve been there but it’s little. It was rushed a little bit, but it’s the end of the show and you’re trying to shove 200 talents into a 3 hour show. So yeah, a little rugged.”

On if he still gets royalties from DX merchandise:

“I do. I do. Anything that has my name that I own on it. Yeah, I get a little bit. But I mean you’re talking like of a half a cent of a half of a cent but it’s still something.”

On when he thinks the New Age Outlaws will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame:

“I think they’ll put me and Brian in as strictly tag stuff, then it will be a few years and they’ll induct Hunter. When they induct Hunter, the next year it’ll be the DX thing.”

• Title Match Announced For This Week’s SmackDown Live

WWE announced the following:

Jeff Hardy to defend the United States Title against Shinsuke Nakamura on SmackDown LIVE

“The United States Championship will be contested this Tuesday night on SmackDown LIVE.

After exchanging verbal blows over social media two weeks ago, the first-ever showdown between Jeff Hardy and Shinsuke Nakamura ended with The Artist getting himself disqualified and delivering a fierce post-match assault on his war torn opponent.

In the wake of the contest, both Superstars continued their war of words.

Now, by order of SmackDown General Manager Paige, the extreme titleholder will defend the U.S Title against his underhanded adversary.

Will Hardy see through Nakamura’s blistering offense and underhanded tactics? Or will The King of Strong Style close his eyes and take the star-spangled title? Find out Tuesday night at 8/7 C on SmackDown LIVE on the USA.”

• Big WWE Title Match Planned For SummerSlam 2018

According to DirtySheets.net, the current plan for SummerSlam 2018 is for “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles to defend the WWE Championship against “The Destroyer” Samoa Joe.

This would mean that Styles will defeat Rusev to retain the WWE Title at next month’s Extreme Rules 2018 PPV.
