• WWF Star Says He Almost Broke Triple H’s Nose In A Backstage Altercation
In this flashback article, we take a look at an old shoot interview featuring former WWF Tag Team Champions The New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg & Billy Gunn) talking about fellow D-Generation X member Triple H.
Below are the highlights:
Road Dogg: I used to ride with Hunter and Chyna and they kind of snucked their nose at me because I did drugs and stuff you know. And now you see Chyna on that show, just blast out of your mind. It’s just like: how dare you. But Hunter was always a d*ck. I almost broke his nose one time.
Billy Gunn: It’s kind of, for me personally, was to get along with him (Hunter) because whipping his a$$ would get me fired. That would have got me fired. You beat him up, you get fired. And I wasn’t about to sacrifice the career that I had and taking care of my kids and my family at the time for whipping his a$$. So we just kind of just let it blow off. But I promise you if you were to come up to me and say, I’d beat his f*cking brains in because he’s a no-good motherf*cker.
I’ll say this just to kind of level now, he’s got talent. I don’t take any of that away. He does have talent and he can work. But when you can do that, why not you bring other guys with you and bring other guys to that point to make the whole company better. Why would you not do that?
When you have somebody, us for example, who want to get up to that next level, but he was always f*cking jerking sh*t. He’d sit there and talk to you, “Hey, you guys are doing a great.” Turn around and he is like, “Them guys are shooting sh*t and they’re f*cking smoking.”
WHY? Why wouldn’t you let your talent speak for you? Why do you f*cking do that? Because he wants to sit on top alone.
Host: Did you guys butt heads with Triple H?
Road Dogg: I butted heads with him one time. It was actually me and you (Billy Gunn) broke up and I was doing a lot of drugs and he came. He wanted to have an intervention with me and and he said, “Hey man, you just got that Armstrong curse.” And I’m a redneck man. Don’t talk about my family.
And that’s the time I almost broke his nose. I said I’ll break your big f*cking nose all over his face. I ain’t scared to do it. And X-Pac got in between us and that was the only time I really butted heads with him.
Host: Do you think DX helped the Outlaws or could you have been as just successful on your own?
Road Dogg: We would have been just as successful on our own. I don’t think they helped us. We helped them. All of a sudden we would get more over because we were doing cooler things than they were. We were just going. We had no agenda. We just went out and had fun and that’s what the people wanted to see. We just went to have fun. That’s all we ever wanted to do is just have fun, do our job, make a little money and do whatever we do.
Then as soon as they saw that we were getting over more… And I mean that’s how you get over. The people see it and everybody just sees that you’re having fun and they love seeing you. And then all of a sudden they go, “Oh, we’re gonna get washed out here. So let’s join everybody together and call them DX.”
