Monty Kip Sopp (b. 1963) is an American {{professional wrestl|ing}}er born in Orlando, UsefulNotes/{{Florida}} and residing in Austin, [[EverythingIsBigInTexas Texas]] who is best known for his work in Wrestling/{{WWE}} as Billy Gunn. After four years in the indies, Gunn debuted in the then-WWF as part of the TagTeam, The Smoking Gunns along with his "brother" Bart Gunn. The Gunns held the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-world-t.html WWF World Tag Team Titles]] 3 times. After Billy and Bart broke up, Billy briefly aligned himself with the Wrestling/HonkyTonkMan under the name Rockabilly. Rockabilly had a brief feud with "The Real Double J" Jesse James, which led both to realize that they should team up, and Rockabilly dropped Honky Tonk Man (by nailing him with an acoustic guitar). Both men renamed themselves, James becoming "Wrestling/RoadDogg" Jesse James and Rockabilly the "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn, together they were the New Age Outlaws. Together, the Outlaws won the WWF World Tag Team Titles 5 times, aligning themselves with and eventually joining Wrestling/DGenerationX. Gunn eventually left DX and broke up with the Road Dogg, renaming himself Mr. Ass, a wrestler who mooned opponents and briefly wore see-through tights. For a brief time he renamed himself "The One" Billy Gunn and teamed with Wrestling/TheBigShow and they became the Show Gunns.
