AEW WILL BE EXCITING JUST LIKE THE ATTITUDE ERA
Former WWE Superstar turned AEW producer Billy Gunn has predicted that the new promotion will be just as good as the Attitude Era.
Speaking to WINCLY, the former tag champion said how he is excited to be a part of the new promotion formed by Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks.
He said: "I think it's gonna be just as good [as the Attitude Era]... At this stage of my career…it's super neat to see a company like this come along that I get to be a part of.
"It's gonna be so new and fresh and fun."
Gunn, 55, is just one of several former WWE Superstars who have joined the new promotion, including Chris Jericho and Neville, now working under his pre-WWE name PAC.
Best known for his time in the New Age Outlaws and D-Generation X, Gunn also said how AEW aims to give as much focus to tag wrestling as it will to singles wrestling.
"They don't really care about the tag division there [WWE], but we will. That's the difference between us," he said.
"If we put a focus on it, and put some mainstream to it, then everybody will take it as a mainstream and not a sideshow."
Despite his comments on being as good as the Attitude Era, the former King of the Ring winner insisted that AEW will not be an Attitude Era throwback.
He said: "I don't wanna say that cause I don't wanna say we're going backwards... I wanna say we're going forward.
"We're bringing everything to light and we're gonna let these kids do what they do."
AEW will have their first major show, Double or Nothing, on May 25, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Tickets for Double or Nothing reportedly sold out in under five minutes.
