In a remarkable display of defiance and confidence, Austin Gunn, one half of the dynamic wrestling duo The Gunns, openly declared that he had received a $500 fine for his controversial remarks towards fans during the November 8 episode of AEW Dynamite.

Despite the penalty, Gunn appeared unfazed, attributing his nonchalance to his financial status and his focused ambition for the upcoming AEW Full Gear event. The incident unfolded after The Gunns, comprising Austin and Colten Gunn, clinched a decisive victory against The Bollywood Boyz, Gurv Sihra and Harv Sihra.

Post-match, the Bullet Club Gold members seized the spotlight, with Colten proclaiming their status as generational talents. However, it was Austin's subsequent actions that ignited controversy. Grabbing the microphone, he initially hurled an expletive at the audience before turning his attention to MJF, the current champion.

Gunn brazenly criticized the fans, expressing hope that MJF would choose one of them as his partner for their tag team clash at AEW Full Gear.

Gunn's Defiant Response

Following the event, Austin Gunn took to Twitter, candidly addressing the fine imposed on him for his outspoken views about the AEW fans.

His tweet read, "Got fined $500 for speaking my mind about what I thought about the fans tonight. It’s ok, I’m rich. Plus, I’ll make it back when I get that POV bonus for stripping MJF of the ROH Tag Team Titles." This statement not only showcases Gunn's indifference towards the fine but also highlights his determination to triumph at the upcoming AEW Full Gear, where he aspires to capture the ROH World Tag Team Championship.

The professional wrestling community eagerly anticipates the outcome of this high-stakes confrontation at AEW Full Gear. Fans and analysts alike are keen to see if The Gunns can capitalize on their momentum and secure the coveted tag team titles.

Fightful is set to provide live coverage of the event on November 18, ensuring that enthusiasts don't miss a moment of what promises to be an electrifying showdown.
