Road Dogg Recalls Not Being Happy With Seth Rollins Ignoring His Advice In NXT

Rollins ignored Road Dogg’s advice and Road Dogg was not pleased.

It has been practically a decade since Seth Rollins was a member of the NXT roster and being the first NXT Champion. Seth has been consistently one of the best performers in the WWE since then, with runs as a singles star along with his time with The Shield producing many memorable matches.

While speaking during an AdFreeShows Q&A session, Road Dogg revealed that he told Rollins to stop doing Rollins’ forearm strike, which had a long windup. Rollins refused Dogg’s advice to change it.

“He used to do this thing in the corner where he would jump up and down, jump up and down and run like he was in a mosh pit, and then run and hit the guy with a forearm. And I thought, ‘Oh, man, that’s so anticlimactic. Like if you jump up and down and you’re really warming up, and then you run and hit the guy with a flipper.”

“I don’t know; it didn’t seem right; it seemed like the build-up was bigger than the finish-up,” opined Road Dogg. “So I went up 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.’ I went to Hunter and said, ‘Well, that kid, I’ll never talk to him again.’ You know what I mean?”

Of course, Seth has since dropped this move from his arsenal, as he has grew as a performer in the company, you can see that he started to wean out these kind of moves as a WWE superstar.
