Brian “The Road Dogg” James has returned to WWE and is working full-time with the NXT brand. James, who stepped down as the head writer of WWE SmackDown! Live last month, was at the WWE Performance Center this weekend. He appeared at the WWE Performance Center Combine special on the WWE Network on Sunday.
James’ official NXT title and role has yet to be confirmed but we know he took a break from WWE due to his frustration with Vince McMahon’s regular changes to the SmackDown! Live script after it was completed. He was also being forced to fly from his home in Pensacola, FL to Stamford, CT multiple days during the month to meet with Vince McMahon and other WWE higher-ups.
