Former WWE alumnus and D-Generation X member known as "Daddy A--" for AEW Singee Billy Gunn also has a very interesting chapter in TNA. Ironically, during his Transformers stint from 2005 to 2009 he had transitioned through identities such as The Outlaw and Kip James before more intriguingly becoming the only male member of TNA's Body Beautiful faction known as The Beautiful People.

The Beautiful People - Angelina Love Velvet Sky Madison Rayne. Gunn discussed his years in TNA during an interview on "Insight with Chris Van Vliet," shedding light into what was a difficult chapter of life for him. There were some really bad things happening to me between the ages of 19 and 22 that meant I didn't appreciate it.

The Wonderful folks released this time, albeit not with no challenges was particularly Peppe said he'd never pull over that the pretty People. He attributed his improved run with the combination of wrestlers in "Dark Order," which is not dissimilar from his prevailing life philosophy while performing in AEW: to have fun above all else.

Gunn Praises Beautiful People

"I love the girls," Gunn said of his co-stars. First of all, The Beautiful People ROCKED!! They made it so much fun. "He was looking to recapture the magic he had with Brian 'Road Dogg' James, but it was his interaction with females that set him apart.

The only male in the group, at first thought I was just an add on but there WAS a reason for that. The girls trusted me full-on," he said. He stressed the bond in how respectful his group was, considering one another and working together for a better future.

They knew they could ask me anything or talk to me about something. It was never on me (I made f----g sure of that). Gunn continued, "That is appropriate for our team and us in the ring."
