History

Near the end of the Invasion storyline, Chuck Palumbo was kicked out of the WCW/ECW coalition. In response, he defected to the WWF, where he began teaming with Gunn in an affront to the Alliance. After the Invasion ended, the duo were turned heel.

A storyline began in which Palumbo and Gunn became increasingly affectionate toward each other, showing evidence of a homosexual relationship. The duo adopted matching red ring gear and bleached their hair with Chuck beginning to wear pigtails. Developmental talent Rico was placed in the role of their crafty "personal stylist". Billy and Chuck would win the World Tag Team Championships on two occasions, and primarily feud with the APA.

In September 2002, Chuck proposed marriage to Billy, and Billy accepted.[2] Their ceremony was aired on SmackDown!.[3] During the wedding, Gunn and Palumbo revealed that their homosexuality was merely a publicity stunt that had gone too far, and they admitted they were only friends.[3] Eric Bischoff, who had disguised himself as the priest officiating the wedding, and 3-Minute Warning from Raw then led an attack on Stephanie McMahon, the General Manager of SmackDown!.[3] Following this incident, Rico defected to Raw and managed 3-Minute Warning.[1] Billy and Chuck remained a team, turning face and dropping all facets of their homosexual gimmick.

Billy and Chuck's final match together occurred on SmackDown! in the first round of a tournament for the newly created WWE Tag Team Championship.[1] They lost the match to the team of Ron Simmons and Reverend D-Von.[4] Gunn received a shoulder injury during the match, and was taken off of television.[1] The team quietly separated with Chuck going into singles competition and Billy returned with his Mr. Ass gimmick.[1]
