Let’s face it, the Cowboy thing back then wasn’t a hit. It’s a little more acceptable now. I don’t know if acceptable is the right word, but more over with the Bull Riding shows now, people are a little more into it. Back then whenever you saw Cowboys or I guess the “Texas Roughneck Guy” on TV, they always had black hats and would spit stuff and was just nasty; that was what Vince's [McMahon] vision was for me and Bart. Our thing was he never had any kind of like nice, good guy, Cowboy characters so when he saw us, of course we went out and bought everything new from hat to shoes, those were all his vision. It took some people a little while to accept us other than the South. When you look at WWE now and you look over at a wrestler, you say, oh, you’re a character, but people don’t know my background where I actually was a Cowboy my entire life before I got into wrestling. I went to college on a Rodeo scholarship. - @realbillygunn

Most of what we had done was little independent shows. Then we came to WWE and you have a sold out arena. Plus, it was a TV taping, so it was even crazier. We were actually hired on the spot. We met with Mr. McMahon and he liked our look and what we did. He hired us and the rest is history. - #BartGunn

I really enjoyed The Smoking Gunns, but Bart Gunn got overshadowed by Jesse James.
