WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg has explained what he thinks the differences are between former WWE boss Vince McMahon and the new man in charge, Triple H.
Road Dogg previously worked closely with Triple H as part of the backstage team that ran NXT. When Triple H was sidelined with heart issues in 2021, things began to change on the brand and NXT 2.0 was born. Many of Triple H’s key lieutenants on the brand including William Regal and Road Dogg were let go from their contracts in early 2022.
Now Triple H is in charge of the creative direction and the talent in WWE following the retirement of his father-in-law Vince McMahon. Changes are already afoot with former WWE stars such as Dakota Kai, Karrion Kross, Scarlett, Dexter Lumis, and Hit Row all returning to the company in recent weeks.
Speaking on his Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, Road Dogg discussed the key difference he sees between Vince McMahon and Triple H and says his old DX running buddy might know how to create a top star better than McMahon:
“I think the differences between the two are subtle. Look, this is, this is how I feel and I don’t think anybody can get mad at me for saying this no matter who you are. Hunter was a top guy. Hunter was a top guy and drew money in this industry.”
“Vince was a promoter. Now Vince has drawn money working with Austin and stuff because the storylines were awesome. However, he didn’t do that like a great wrestler does.”
“He did that like the boss working with the hottest thing going and, and it was, you know, lightning in a bottle. My point is, I think Hunter knows how to make a top guy better than Vince does, and I think that’s because of his experience being one. I don’t think it’s because he lacks anything, I just think Hunter had that experience of going up their chain of command and then being the guy for a little while.”
