The Road Dogg Recalls Seth Rollins’ Bad Habits In WWE NXT


Upon arrival in WWE NXT, multiple-time WWE Champion Seth Rollins had some bad habits to break, according to Road Dogg.

During a live Q&A session for Ad Free Shows about some of the bad habits that independent talent had picked up prior to their arrival in NXT, The Road Dogg cited Seth Rollins as an example.

You can check out some highlights from the Q&A below:

On giving advice to Rollins early on in NXT: “He used to do this thing in the corner where he would jump up and down, and jump up and down, and run like he was in a mosh pit, and then just run and hit the guy with a forearm. And I thought, ‘that’s so anti-climatic.’ It seemed like the build-up to it was bigger than the finish of it. So I went to him and told him that, and he said ‘No, that’s what I do. I’m not changing it. That’s what I do.’ And I went to [Triple H] and I said, ‘Well, that kid, I’ll never talk to him again.'”

On Rollins; bad habits in NXT: “His bad habit was not saying, ‘Okay, thank you, sir,’ or whatever and being respectful and then not doing what I said like every other young wrestler. At least pretend to respect what I’m telling you, you know what I mean? And what I was telling him was right. He did change it, and he did come up something that was more of a bigger pop than the set-up to it.”

On NXT management setting Rollins straight: “They had a ‘come to Jesus’ speech with him down there. And he changed his whole philosophy and perspective on how he was looking at stuff, and look at him now, man. On top of the world, and doing some of his best work too, I might add.”

On NXT building around college athletes now, more than independent wrestlers: “I think they want to build their own athletes and I don’t know how many more out there there are. But I still think they’ll hire people from the independent scene. I think it will just be younger talent that hadn’t been out there for ten years.”
