Road Dogg Names His Current Match Of The Year

WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg

WWE Hall Of Famer and Senior Vice President Of Live Events Road Dogg has named his favourite match of the year so far.

Speaking on his podcast, ‘Oh…Youd Didn’t Know‘, the former 6-time WWE Tag Team Champion named the Bloodline Civil War as the best bout he had seen this year.

The main event of a terrific Money In The Bank event held infront of a raucous sold-out crowd at the o2 Arena in London saw Roman Reigns pinned for the first time in three years as he and Solo Sikoa were defeating by The Usos. Road Dogg explained his reasons for the selection:

“I got to say, The Usos vs. Roman and Solo.

To me, it was the best story. It’s the best build to a story. I don’t know, I’m just all invested emotionally into that story. I think they paid it off in a big way where now you gotta see [what’s next].

Then, they hurt Jimmy [Uso], and so now Jay challenges Roman, right? Like, oh my God, we’re still going, and I’ve already seen what I felt was, again, speaking emotionally, what I thought was the match of the year.

My favourite match, again, because of my emotional investment into the story — it didn’t matter if they did five-star spots or took a big risk, or did all this because you risk yourself every time you go out there. It was just heart and soul, man.

Also, they’re in there with their brothers and their cousin, and they’re working on this huge [stage]. I can’t help but to feel that. I don’t even know what that is, but I feel it vicariously through them because I’d love to be able to work with my brothers, and I have worked with a couple of my brothers, and just to be in there on that grandest stage and just ruling the roost man I don’t know like they’re my heart’s in that ring with those guys.”

Road Dogg Hasn’t Seen Omega Vs Ospreay

Whilst many feel that honour should go to Kenny Omega and Will Ospreay after two incredible matches NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17 and AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2, the D-Generation X legend noted that he had not seen the matches:

“I know a lot of people love that match. I, for one, am not a fan of that style. I like the [Memphis style], to be quite honest with you. That’s why I was always a big Shawn [Michaels] guy instead of a Bret [Hart] guy, you know what I mean?”
