Posted By James Walsh on 11/24/21


AEW star Billy Gunn recently appeared on the Z100 program with host Josh Martinez to discuss a number of different topics, including how much heís enjoying working with his sons (Austin & Colten) in the promotion, stating that they help keep him young. Highlights from the interview can be found below.

Says itís amazing to continue working with his sons:

Itís amazing [working with Austin & Colten Gunn in AEW], it really is. Iím lucky enough to have an awesome career and I figured by now, maybe Iíd be retired and be able just to coach and do my thing and there they go, they drag me right back in. But itís been amazing, it really has and I enjoy what I do and you know, the funny thing is me and the boys always have this thing, if they graduate college, they can do whatever they want, you know? I would help them with that so our deal was always they had to graduate from college first, they both did that and then all of a sudden, they both wanted to wrestle and I knew Austin would always wanna do it because heís me, just amplified 100 if you can believe that and Colten has his thing that he does but itís been amazing and itís a great way to cap an awesome career that Iíve had.

Details his battle with asthma:

I donít know if itís that [asthma having an affect on his singles career] because I can manage it. You know, Iíve been able to manage it okay. Itís not something that I really think about or really hark about. Itís just something I have and you either deal with it or you just quit. I mean I do have preventive inhalers and stuff and I know how to manage my energy level so of course thereís gonna be times where itís gonna grab me and I just gotta be able to settle down and kind of grab it under control and then keep going. Itís not something that I let stop me or keep me from doing what I do.
