Billy Gunn Explains Why The New Age Outlaws Didn't Do Ladder Matches

WWE's beloved "Attitude Era" of programming during the late 90s and early 2000s delivered some of the best tag team wrestling fans will ever see. It felt as though there were different styles each team excelled at, whether it be their in-ring, technical prowess, their sneaky, underhanded tactics to score victories, or their tendency to get extreme with daredevil leaps and using weapons. Brian "Road Dogg" James and Billy Gunn excelled in this era's tag team division as The New Age Outlaws, two outspoken brawlers that backed up their trash-talking with a total of six tag team title reigns during their run together. Road Dogg and Gunn weren't afraid to take things to an extreme level on numerous occasions throughout their career, but there was one gimmick match, in particular, they avoided at all costs.

Billy Gunn On How New Age Outlaws Vs. The Outsiders Would've Played Out

Billy Gunn has a bold idea about the outcome of a feud that never was between two of the most popular pro wrestling factions of the 1990s. During a recent appearance on the Facebook Live interview show "Captain's Corner," the current AEW star took questions from fans and opened up about his time wrestling for the WWF during the Attitude Era, as well as his most recent resurgence with The Acclaimed in AEW. Late in the interview, the WWE Hall of Famer was asked what it would've been like if his old WWF tag team, The New Age Outlaws, had ever faced off against Scott Hall and Kevin Nash's WCW group, The Outsiders. The tag teams were two of the most popular units of their era, which has long left fans wondering who would've won had they ever shared a ring together.
