Road Dogg’s Hall of Fame Career
Fans will remember Road Dogg most recently from when he and his team were inducted into the 2019 class of the WWE Hall of Fame. Going back to the 90s, fans of the WWF’s Attitude Era will recognize Road Dogg from The New Age Outlaws tandem with Billy Gun as part of D-Generation X. Some consider their stable the greatest tag-team champions in WWF history.
According to WWE. com, Road Dogg won multiple titles, including a handful as a tag-team with Billy Gun. He also won a WWF Intercontinental Championship. In the early 2000s, he moved on to compete in different wrestling networks.
His last WWE appearance came in 2014 when he “shocked the WWE Universe” by reappearing alongside Billy Gunn and winning the title at Royal Rumble Kickoff Match.
These days, Brian James works behind the scenes as a producer and writer for a number of WWE shows.
We wish him a full and fast recovery.
