A crucial part of measuring the success of any superstar in the wrestling business can be considered wins and losses. A big match win can establish the foundation for the rise of a talented individual, while even a small loss can derail their momentum.
However, WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg has his own theory when it comes to this discussion. During the recent edition of his “Oh…You Didn’t Know” podcast, he mentioned that wins and losses do not matter at times in the industry.
He tried to back his point by emphasizing the fact that the match outcomes were scripted in the wrestling business as a part of being a televised soap opera with physicality and storytelling involved.
“This is my personal opinion. If so, and I’ve said it a million times, and this may get us trending. The other thing about Billy and crooners or, or this may be, wins and losses don’t matter. Jim Cornette will have a coronary, and you know, and he’ll say, my dad’s rolling over in his grave, and I’ll say no because I know him better than you do. And and, like, he’s just not gonna, you know what I mean?”
“Like, it doesn’t matter. If I got beat on Monday Night Raw when I was the Road Dog, and then the next Monday, the Road Dog came out, they still set every word with me; they’d say they wouldn’t like to be lost. Isa, I’m watching him again. You know what I mean? It doesn’t. And people kind of know it’s not real, too. So I don’t know. I don’t think I don’t think wins and losses matter. Thanks, stupid, for thinking that I know. Whatever you think, whatever you want to say about me. But, you know, Hunter never, I don’t know. It just doesn’t matter.”
Road Dogg himself has tasted his share of wins and losses in his WWE career. But that did not stop his rise as a popular attraction and multiple WWE tag team title reigns during the heights of the Attitude Era.
With the now WWE Executive bringing up a rather important discussion, it would surely attract a mixed reaction from the fan base due to their years of fandom and emotional involvement with the wrestling business.
