Hit Row member Top Dolla transitioned from the world of football to professional wrestling. He adjusted to WWE’s way of pro wrestling pretty quick and the results spoke for themselves.

Top Dolla was seen as the leader of Hit Row due to his impressive mic skills and well-liked diss tracks. It was all in vain as Hit Row was released by WWE back in November last year.

However, Hit Row made their return on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown. They reintroduced themselves to the WWE Universe after their win over enhancement talents.

While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Top Dolla talked about his WWE release. Dolla revealed that he stopped watching pro wrestling following his release.


 “When we got released, Hit Row was hotter than anything in wrestling, period. I don’t care who you are. You can get your feelings hurt if you want to, but Hit Row was hotter than anything in wrestling, period. When we got released, I felt like I had something great and it just turned into ashes in my hand. It made me stop watching wrestling for the first time in my life. I’m 32 years old and I went eight months without watching wrestling, like at all, nothing. I saw the last 10 minutes of the Royal Rumble. That was it. That’s the only wrestling I saw for like nine months. What killed me was I felt like if I watched wrestling, I would just see that Hit Row should be in that spot right now. That’s what we should be doing right now, and it killed me.”

He (Triple H) knows the real me. He did Most Wanted Treasures with me. He saw me in a non-wrestling sense. He saw me in a non-the boys in the locker room sense. He’s seen me and knows how I really am. So he knows that all that talk about me being hard to work with, and being difficult, and all that was bullsh*t, and he knew that. So he was willing to put himself and his neck on the line to be like, ‘Nah, these guys are talented. I want them back.'”

Triple H also promised Hit Row clean slate after their WWE return. We will have to wait and see how Hit Row will be booked in the coming weeks. With Triple H in charge of WWE Creative, it is likely they will be given more focus from now on.
