Sports Illustrated posted an article featuring Billy Gunn who talked about about his recent work in New Japan Pro Wrestling and shared that Hiroshi Tanahashi asked to work with him for the G1 Special.
“It was a huge honor to work for New Japan in that match,” says Gunn. “We went out there and did our thing, and Tanahashi is just awesome. That was the greatest experience I’ve had in a long time. Tanahashi asked for me, which was very flattering, and I thought I wouldn’t have those opportunities to be in a high-profile match like that at this point in my career. It was so good to see Jim Ross broadcasting the match, and I love it when he calls my stuff.”
Gunn also commented on the infamous promo featuring DX's Nation of Domination parody: “How can you forget it? It’s the funniest thing we ever did. DX did a lot of crazy stuff, and a lot of stuff off-script, but that was awesome. Most people remember me and Brian [Road Dogg] doing the dumpster match, as well as the parody against Nation of Domination. We were having some fun, everyone took it like that, and it was one of the funniest things we ever did.”
