Vince McMahon was the CEO of WWE before he had to step down following allegations of sexual misconduct and allegedly having paid $12 million in hush money in a huge scandal. He eventually retired from WWE for good and was replaced by his daughter Stephanie McMahon as the CEO of WWE. His son-in-law Triple H is now the Executive Vice President of Talent and Relations as well. Vince McMahon also lied about quitting WWE recently but ended up being real in the end.
On the latest episode of the Oh… You Didn’t Know? Podcast Road Dogg was asked if was any truth to the rumors that WWE wanted to bring him back for a D-Generation X reunion in 2002. The WWE Hall of Famer confirmed the story but said he was in jail at the time, so there it was never going to happen.
“Yep, true,” Road Dogg confirmed. “I literally was like in jail or something when they went — there’s a funny story I should have told about on the other podcast that we did about Russo going, ‘Look, I’m trying to get DX back together, bro. Road Dogg’s in jail. Chyna’s over here; she’s doing this. I’m gonna bring in X-Pac, and he’s gonna come in.’
“That was a shoot conversation that was had. Like it was that WWA deal. I had a contract, and they were promoting me, and I was supposed to be in Vegas for the pay-per-view, and I’m in jail in Milton, Florida. And like, people are looking at me like, ‘You’re supposed to be there, right?’ It’s not gonna happen. I’m not gonna have the match for the world title.”
