WWE COO Triple H is close friends with Road Dogg and Billy Gunn. The three stars were part of D-Generation X in WWE along with Shawn Michaels and X-Pac. A long time back, however, The Game had animosity with Road Dogg and Billy Gunn during a time when they weren’t working for WWE. Ostensibly, things got so heated that Triple H hired Trevor Murdoch and Lance Cade to protect him from the duo.
During his recent appearance on Cultaholic, Trevor Murdoch shared that the former WWE Champion approached him and his partner Cade during a house show and asked them to be on the lookout for Road Dogg and Billy Gunn during his match. Triple H then told the two former WWE stars to beat them up if they showed up and tried to ambush him.
“There was a time period when there was a lot of animosity between Hunter and Road Dogg and Billy Gunn,” said Trevor. “We were in a town wrestling, doing a house show, but it so happened to be the same town that Road Dogg and Billy were doing an autograph signing in, which seemed suspicious in of itself. Lance and I had a reputation in the locker room where, if you’ve seen one, the other one wasn’t that far behind. Cade and I were tight and there were a couple of times we got into a couple of fights, because one guy got into a fight and the other one had come in. So Hunter tracks me down and goes: ‘Where’s that partner of yours? I need to talk to you both’.”
“We’re expecting some kind of grand advice about our match but he goes: ‘Are you two watching my match tonight?’ he added. “We’re young guys so we’re telling him of course we’re watching his match, we watch him every night. And he goes: ‘Yeah quit with this’ and then explains to us the situation and what he’d heard, that Billy and Road Dogg were going to jump into the ring and beat him up. He goes: ‘I want you guys at the curtain and I want you watching my whole match. The minute you see those guys, you hit that f**king ring, and you proceed to start kicking their f**king ass’ This was very serious. He was very adamant, and we know this is coming from the very top.”
Trevor Murdoch and Lance Cade agreed to do it, and fortunately for them, The New Age Outlaws didn’t show up. The three of them managed to sort things out, as they were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2019 as members of D-Generation X.
