Road Dogg, a WWE Hall of Famer Brian James returned recently to the WWE, taking over as Vice President of Live Events for his long-time friend Jeff Jarrett. Despite the fact that James had been out of the company since his release in January, he had previously worked as a writer on WWE SmackDown, with perhaps his most memorable contribution being the Kofi Mania story, which climaxed in Kofi Kingston coming out on top his first ever WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35.
Although James had many brilliant ideas, one that was rejected by his boss at the time, Vince McMahon, engaged Sami Zayn, who rose to prominence on the independent scene as the veiled El Generico. I tried to get him to wrestle on SmackDown and have El Generico wrestle on Monday Night Raw when I was writing for SmackDown, & Vince will not go for it. James said we were going to attempt to do that and have folks go, That’s you dude, and he was like, Sorry, I don’t understand what you’re discussing about.
We assumed it would be hilarious. It was Ezekiel before Ezekiel made his debut. Zayn is presently engulfed in a plotline with The Bloodline, the WWE’s hottest act, in which he is torn between his loyalty to his real-life best friend Kevin Owens and the group he so desperately wants to join. Owens has a rich history with Zayn in WWE, as well as with El Generico just on independent circuit, in which the two were tag team champions in both Ring of Honor and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla before engaging in a year-long blood feud.
Road Dogg Discussed Vince McMahon
WWE Hall of Fame member Road Dogg discussed Vince McMahon and the WWE’s current creative modifications. In one noteworthy exchange, Dogg described telling McMahon everybody was frightened of him. I tried to tell him, Everyone is terrified of you, sir, Dogg said. Noticeably, McMahon’s reaction to these words caused Dogg to rethink his opinion of the WWE CEO.
McMahon responded, Well, that’s on them because I’ve haven’t ever done anything at all to scare anybody, as per Dogg. Dogg considered the genuine truth in McMahon’s words as he absorbed McMahon’s response. I considered it, but he did not. He’s never beaten anyone. He never yelled or threw his phone at anyone, according to Dogg. He never threw anything or pushed anyone up against the wall, as far as I know.
Nonetheless, the truth in McMahon’s response caused Dogg to come to an even bigger realisation. So, I had to ask myself, Is his presence terrifying? and the answer to that is yes, Dogg says. As such, my point is that he was led by fear, but he didn’t mean to. He simply had a powerful aura. McMahon officially retired as WWE Chairman and CEO last month following a slew of harassment claims. Dogg worked as an NXT producer prior to his release in January.
