During the lastest episode of X-Pac 1-2-360, Road Dogg was a guest on the show and while he and X-Pac answered questions live from the WWE Performance Center, Road Dogg made some interesting comments.
Beyond saying the current crop of WWE and NXT talent is among the best in wrestling history, when asked how today’s landscape compared to the Attitude Era, Road Dogg insinuated it’s not close.
“If you go back and watch the Attitude Era, to be quite honest with you, it was a freaking mess. I can’t even go back, like I’ll watch our matches every now and then, I will, but there would be a match going on and all of a sudden two other guys would fight out on the stage and they would go down and fight the guy on commentary it was just like, ‘what is going on here?'”
From there, Road Dogg went onto talk about his tag team history with X-Pac and Billy Gunn, his writing work with WWE and among other things, the topic of NXT performers trying to top themselves each and every time out.
Road Dogg suggested that by the time NXT Takeover 26 rolls around, talent will still be stepping up their game and calling upon each wrestler to outdo the one that wrestled before them.
Dividing Wrestling Fans
This will obviously be a comment that divides wrestling fans. Some are still stuck on the idea that the Attitude Era was the best in wrestling history. There’s an argument there that if you are a fan of the pure entertainment aspect of the business, such a statement is true.
Other fans will say the work-rate of today’s performers is incomparable. Talents like Ricochet, Aleister Black, Johnny Gargano, Adam Cole and others are offering up some amazing matches.
