WWE Launches Master Anti-Ass Plan For Next Week's Raw

WWE is determined not to let any rogue butts get in the way of next week's special Raw episode.

Triple H Billy Gunn Mr. Ass

WWE has launched a plan to combat unwanted "Daddy Ass" chants at next week's episode of Raw, reports Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

A special 25th-anniversary celebration for the iconic D-Generation X stable is billed for the 10 October Raw. Core members Paul 'Triple H' Levesque, Shawn Michaels, and Brian 'Road Dogg' James already work for WWE, and are therefore safe bets to be involved, while Sean 'X-Pac' Waltman is a free agent and could appear as well.

Billy Gunn, however, is the odd one out. Contracted to AEW since 2019, Meltzer wrote that where once Tony Khan might have consented to one of his talents appearing in a one-off capacity, given Chris Jericho and Bryan Danielson's recent cameos on John Cena's anniversary show, this is unlikely now.


Fortunately, WWE has apparently made specific plans for how to deal with any "Daddy Ass" chants should they break out in Gunn's absence. Billy's new monicker is one of the most over things in AEW at the moment, so it stands to reason that this could happen if the Brooklyn crowd gets restless.

WWE is also billing the 10 October Raw as its Season Premiere on USA Network. SmackDown's Bloodline stable, including Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, has already been confirmed for it.
