Road Dogg Explains How He Could Help AEW's TV Product, Expresses Interest In Color-Commentary (Video)


Road Dogg Brian James recently spoke with Dr. Chris Featherstone of Sportskeeda for an in-depth interview covering his legendary pro wrestling career.

During the discussion, the WWE Hall of Fame icon and former longtime behind-the-scenes executive for the company spoke about his interest in doing color-commentary, as well as how he could help AEW's television product.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on these topics with his thoughts.

On how he would love to do color-commentary in his career, revealing that he once asked Vince McMahon if he could give it a shot in WWE: "I’d also love to do color commentary on some show so if anybody out there is hiring, I’m not retired, I’m unemployed. Let me make that perfectly clear [Road Dogg laughed] and look, I’d love to be working somewhere and doing what I love to do and helping these young guys and helping the television product become better as well. Well it kind of goes hand-in-hand. When I first got released, I thought, I always wanted to do color commentary and Vince [McMahon] always said, ‘No. I need you back here helping to set up and construct and execute the show,’ you know what I mean? I thought, okay, that makes sense. That’s why I’m writing the show. You need me back here to kind of help execute it, but I thought, man, I’d love to try that. I wanted to try the podcast, I’m doing it now. I don’t think I’m doing it well but I will get better. We will hit our stride, but, it’s just fun and it’s a new challenge, you know what I mean? So I’m up for it."

On how he could help AEW’s television product: "I would love to go back and work behind the scenes. I think I could help with AEW’s television product and I think I could help with the creative consistency about some things, some unwritten rules that’ll just make their television show prettier and look, maybe that’s not what they want and I understand that too. But, I’m here if you need me."
