• “I literally was in Jail at that time” – Road Dogg Confirms A 2002 WWE Rumor

During an episode of his “Oh… You Didn’t Know?” podcast, WWF Legend Road Dogg Jesse James was asked if the rumors of WWE wanting to reunite DX in 2002 are true.

Below are the highlights:

If WWE wanted a D-Generation X reunion in 2002:

“Yep, true.

I literally was in Jail at that time 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.”

On Triple H & Shawn Michaels doing a mini-DX reunion in 2002, before HHH turned on HBK:

“Shawn and Triple H could never figure out, are they together? Are they separate? You know what I mean? So it’s awesome that they come together and they do this DX thing, but they’re so good at what they do. I hate to leave them together.

If I’m in charge of creative, you know what I mean? Those guys can be top guys on either side of the roster. Either one of them, and they are draws, and I could use that and so it’s hard to put them together and make sense of it all and qualify it anyway.”

• Old School WWF Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 60th birthday of Old School WWF Veteran Ludvig Borga (Real name: Tony Halme).

He wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation as an upper mid-carder in 1993 & early 1994 and was eventually going to be pushed to be a main eventer, but then got injured and left the company.

Borga’s biggest accomplishment during his time in the WWF, was ending Tatanka’s 2 year winning streak.

After his Professional Wrestling Career was over, he became an MMA fighter, losing to Randy “The Natural” Couture at ‘UFC 13: The Ultimate Force’ on May 30, 1997, before becoming a politician and even got elected into the Parliament of his home country Finland.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † R.I.P.

January 6, 1963 – January 8, 2010
