X-Pac 1, 2, 360 Recap w/ Road Dogg – Leaving Smackdown Head Writer Position, Working With NXT Talents on Their Entrances, R-Truth’s Golden Touch, More!
X-Pac points out that talents have to be creating their own content now and Road Dogg agrees, noting that the rise in social media allows talent to create their own content, as long as they adhere to WWE’s policies of course. This in turn helps WWE’s creative team, because a talent may bring out a different side of their character on their own and give the creative team some fresh ideas.
Road Dogg says it feels great to be a WWE Hall of Famer. He always thought that maybe he and Billy Gunn would be inducted as the New Age Outlaws some day, but he doesn’t even care about that now that all of DX has been inducted. He says his favourite part of the entire thing was being on that stage with all of his friends.
Road Dogg admits that it frustrates him when people speak of DX and only mention Triple H and Shawn Michaels. X-Pac agrees, adding that he and the New Age Outlaws really added something important to that group.
Getting back to his new position in NXT, Road Dogg says he really missed being involved with talent on a day-to-day basis while he was Head Writer of Smackdown Live. In the Head Writer position, he was busy in the writer’s room all day, as well as in meetings with Vince McMahon. Now he gets to interact with talent again and he enjoys that.
