• DX Member Returns To WWE Under A New Position
Earlier this year, D-Generation X Member Road Dogg, who was a part of Triple H’s backstage team in NXT, was released from WWE.
Now that Vince McMahon has retired and Triple H is in charge of the Creative Department, and his wife Stephanie McMahon is the co-CEO of WWE along with Nick Khan, Road Dogg has been brought back to the company.
According to PWInsider, Road Dogg is now the Vice President of Live Events in WWE.
However, Road Dogg isn’t a replacement for Jeff Jarrett, who was the Senior Vice President of Live Events and left the company last week.
There are talks going on to bring back more members of Triple H’s NXT management team that were released from the company.
