Billy Gunn has been cleared to return.

http://www.wwe.com/news/headlines/1214171

All is well again, I can see the ratings spike already.

Now, what to do with him?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Not Monty f'n Sopp!!??!?! I thought for sure he was done for good and was gonna become a road agent or something?

I'm sorry. I loved the Smoking Gunns growing up. I marked and copied the New Age Outlaws in my earlier teen years but then after that, that was it. I really think Billy's run his course and he should just hang it up. He's gone from being entertaining to being really annoying.

    Swiped from wwe.com article
    Gunn said he still may end up becoming an agent one day, but that’ll have to wait because he has unfinished business in the ring.
Like what...the honeymoon?!?

A quote from the article:

“When I come back, I’m going to be World Champ in about six months,” he said.

I'm sorry - I think Billy Gunn sucks so much that, much like Test's promos, he actually loops around and becomes cool once again. I personally am happy to hear this, and hope for the imminent return of X-Pac.

Thinking over my love of Billy Gunn, I did think of some good things (I think) about him.
He always has good or funny theme music. Ass Man is great fun, One and Only had a great guitar riff, even BillyChuck's music was good.
He can normally make a tag team click with anyone.
He was in the NAO.
His punches are unique.
He's good at selling.
He might not be Benoit by any means, but I think when need be he can pull out a decent match.
He has a pretty big moveset for the WWE (various neckbreakers, powerslam, tilt-a-whirl slam, Fameasser, One and Only, good dropkick, bodyslam, Jackhammer, DDTs, etc.)

IF Nash gets the title away from Trip, I can see Billy hitting the fameasser already for the 1, 2, 3. heh.

Looks like Billy's got new "Generic" theme music, as well as a new titan tron.

Click Here (wwe.com)

Toss that into your Windows Media Player.

Maybe they can fued him with Chuck and the FBI?

It could be worse. They could have been announcing the return of Bradshaw and his 'locker room leadership'.

well the APA are set to come back soon. They're the Southern Tag Champs in OVW and are feuding with Lance Cade and Rene Dupre at the moment.

As for the titantron, I think that's the one Billy used briefly after the whole Billy and Chuck fiasco blew off but since he was injured, he didn't get to use it too much.

Like him or not... at least the guy has got a job, right? I mean, he's trying to pay the bills (and get on www.thesmokinggun.com ) just like you and me.

Man, if only Tough Enough was still around...

Seriously, I wish him well on his comeback, but I never cared much for him. I throw him in the same pile as the Hollys, APA, Rikishi, etc. (aka the "time to cut bait with these guys" pile)

Why do you hate to say this? You like him, so why being ashamed of it?

I like Billy when he isn't nearly dropping Chris Benoit on his head on consecutive nights.

I say, bring him back and give him the RAW title. I serious. Do a whole "dX days" thing and make Billy the one guy that'll stand with Trips against Nash and Michaels (who are old men that shouldn't be much of a problem) and then do a big turn, give him the old dX shit, call him Bad Ass again, give him the belt, have him lose to Booker T, and then put him in a best of seven with Steiner.

I meant everything except that last part.

I'm smelling another tag team title reign for Mr. Gunn. The question is, which lucky stiff is going to get pleasure to team with him?

It's off topic but why did my sig pic spread out when I entered it in? Is there a way I can correct this.
