AEW personality Mark Henry has said that WWE’s roster launched a “negative propaganda” campaign following the release of Hit Row’s Top Dolla.
Top Dolla, aka AJ Francis, was cut from WWE in November 2021 along with the rest of his stable.
It was reported shortly after his release that Dolla had been a “heat magnet” backstage which contributed to his and Hit Row’s departure.
On a recent edition of the Busted Open podcast, Mark Henry said some in WWE had sabotaged Dolla with false stories about him.
“He [Top Dolla] spoke on the fact that, they, there was a lot of chatter in the locker room about them [Hit Row] not being humble, them not being team players or them not agreeing to kind of the status quo of what the WWE locker room was like.
“And he said, ‘Mark, have you ever known me to be unprofessional? Have you ever known me to be a bully? No. Triple H, same thing. No.’ When people feel like their spots are threatened, they start putting out negative propaganda if they can’t fix it.”
Top Dolla, alongside Ashante ‘Thee’ Adonis and B-Fab, returned to WWE on SmackDown earlier this month.
The trio’s return comes after Karrion Kross, Scarlett and Dexter Lumis were all rehired by the promotion’s new Head of Talent Relations Triple H.
