Road Dogg Reveals Why He Was Very Jealous Of WWE Legend The Rock

WWE Senior Vice President of Live Events and pro wrestling legend Road Dogg took to an episode of his “Oh… You Didn’t Know?” podcast, where he talked about a variety of topics such as how he took it upon himself to keep WWE legend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s feet on the ground and how doing that was very important to him because he was very jealous of The Rock for being able to do everything and also for being the total package and he did that by verbally abusing him and taking shots at him in the ring.

Road Dogg said:

“It felt very important to me to keep his feet on the ground. And I did so because I was jealous of him and I didn’t like him and Boo on you. But look, he could cut a promo, he could wrestle, he looked great, you know what I mean? He’s the total package on the reel. And I wasn’t that, and so I was very jealous of him. And I’ve told him that and apologised since but it still doesn’t take away the fact that I took it upon myself to keep his feet on the ground. And I did that with verbal abuse and potshots in the ring too, you know what I mean?”

“Like he knew that when they were there and he would bring it back and we would, you know, kind of do you and left it all out in the ring for sure. But I took it upon myself to keep his feet on the ground, and that was not my place, and I’ll forever apologise for that to him. But it was just, we were just in the ring wrestling, and I’m in the ring with you, dude, so you’re equal to me, You know what I mean?”

“And look, and like I said, in retrospect, I see we’re not equal. We’re not equal as far as intellectual properties are concerned, you know what I mean? In the eyes of God, you and I are the same, but in the eyes of the consumer, of the almighty consumer we are not. And I understand that.”
