Billy & Chuck

What did you guys think of their tag team in early 2000?

I may be one of the few, but I actually really loved these guys as a tag team. At the time, I was younger so I'm not sure I totally understood the whole gay thing.... but regardless looking back I just think they were an awesome unique tag team.

What do you guys think?

They were awesome until they admitted they faked it on the wedding.

Re: Billy & Chuck

I enjoyed it, but it really was offensive and shouldn't be tolerated. Its right up there with Eugene Dinsmore's mentally challenged gimmick as something really offensive WWE shouldn't have done. WWE does a lot of things that are "offensive" but really just harmless, but gays and the mentally challenged are actually made fun of everyday in hurtful ways, particularly by children (and adults with the maturity of children who insult ppl/things as "gay" or "fag" in these forums). WWE, by showing those gimmmicks, ACTUALLY increased the chance of middle schoolers the next day saying offensive and hurtful things. So, yeah, it was just offensive.

And I know both Eugene and Billy & Chuck were good guys, but that doesn't change the fact that it was silly shock value about controversial kinds of ppl. If there was a gimmick and there was just an irrelevant detail as to their being gay, it would be one thing. But to make their entire gimmick homosexuality? Even if they're good guys that's still objectifying gays and asking the audience to see them as "the gay wrestlers," rather than wrestlers who happen to be gay. Acting like homosexuality dominates every action and mannerism of a gay person is inherently offensive.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
NJPW: Okada, Nakamura, Styles ROH: Briscoes, Fish and O'Reilly, Young Bucks
All-Time: Rock, Punk, Lesnar, Angle

Re: Billy & Chuck

I mean to say early 2000's** lol

What was up with the wedding being pulled anyways? I read on their wiki that the wedding was actually supposed to happen, and WWE was actually apparently working with gay alliances on the story line to make it appeal to people.

I'm glad to see a few of you enjoyed it, I'm sure some people will get all homophobic but I thought it was great stuff.

Billy Gunn even said in an interview that he would have taken that story line however far they wanted to take it, which is also cool I think. I think ironically there was certainly a chemistry between Billy and Chuck.

And how's this for a match ahaha



BROCK LESNAR jobbing too BILLY AND CHUCK!

What are you rambling about? Lol. The Gay Alliance not only promoted Billy and Chuck, they consulted WWE on the story line. Nobody was being made fun of.

Was it not comic relief based on stereotypes? Were they not reduced to JUST gay ppl, with no other significant character traits? I say the same about Scotty Goldman's Jewish gimmick, Eugene's mentally challenged gimmick, Cryme Tyme's CRYME TYME gimmick, and Eddie Guerrero's "lie, cheat, and steal" catchphrase. Good guys with stereotypes is still the perpetuation of stereotypes. And GLAAD isn't the moral authority on gays and lesbians, we can use our own brains to judge this.

Re: Billy & Chuck

The downfall of Billy Gunn is all I am saying, alot of people liked them but I hated them with a passion
