WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg recently took to Busted Open Radio to give his thoughts on the ongoing issues between WWE and the duo of Sasha Banks and Naomi, whether it could be a work, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
His thoughts on the situation:
“All I’ve heard so far are the rumors. But when I see them publicly put it all out there like that, it just makes me feel like it’s a work, you know what I mean? It just makes me feel like, if that really happened, in my mind, they would just change the main event, and probably not even say anything. I’ve been in meetings where we’ve done worse than that.
So I just feel like, if they’re going to put it all out there – I know they do have a new leadership regime kinda in there a little bit, but it just makes me think Vince ain’t gonna put it all out there like that. He doesn’t have to air his dirty laundry like that, I don’t feel.
Again, that’s just my opinion. I don’t know, one way or the other, and what leads people to believe that is, you know, Sasha’s been around, she had complained in the past. She has had issues with her creative in the past, and so it makes you at least lean towards, ‘well maybe that did happen,’ and look, maybe it did.
The truth of it is, would you do that Bubba [Bully Ray Busted Open Radio host]? You know what I mean? You’re the tag champs. I think it is a publicity stunt to try and add some heat to the tag titles. But again, that’s just me, and I’m a cynical worker who’s been around the business my whole life, so I think everything’s a work.”
If the entire thing is a work:
“I feel like they used words like that [in the WWE statement released after RAW] to throw you and make you go like, ‘they would never use words like that. I just think that’s how cunning and baffling sometimes the creative direction up there is. So, I don’t know. I love the discussion because I don’t know if we’ll ever get an answer – well I guess we will if they show up on AEW, I guess we’ll have an answer.”
It being a risky move for Sasha Banks and Naomi:
“Yeah, risky as far as who she’s with, where they’re at, and all of that. But I do believe they would look at her as an individual talent and not lump her and [Jimmy] Uso together. But it is risky for her because what’s going to happen after this? Maybe she’s done. Maybe she don’t want to work no more. They’ve got to be doing well.”
