Billy Gunn talks about his dismissal from WWE

Speaking with Sports Illustrated, former WWE Performance Center coach Billy Gunn explained his dismissal from WWE, which happened in mid November of last year.

Unbeknownst to WWE, Gunn was participating in powerlifting competitions and it was then revealed that Gunn failed one of their drug tests after he went over their limit.

“Let’s face it: I’m 52 years old. I have my [prescription] from the doctor, but it was the way it all came out is what they had to do. I don’t blame them at all, and I’m going to take every single bit of it because it wasn’t fair to NXT for what Hunter had done for the company,” Gunn said.

He called Triple H’s work with NXT as amazing and is perfectly fine with the decision the company took against him because it was his fault. However, he hopes that one day they hire him back.

“I feel I was a pretty good coach. It’s just the way it all came out. It wasn’t anything that WWE did; they [had] to do what they did, and I feel like I let the NXT kids down. I never, ever wanted to do that. Ever. So I’ll take that,” Gunn concluded.
