Brian "Road Dogg" James Discusses His New Role With NXT
Posted By: WrestlingNewsSource.com on Jun 12, 2019
SEAN 'X-PAC' WALTMAN WELCOMES BRIAN "ROAD DOGG" JAMES FROM THE WWE PERFORMANCE CENTER TO TALK ABOUT HIS NEW ROLE AT NXT, NXT TAKEOVER AND MORE.
Brian "Road Dogg" James On Why He Likes Working On NXT
For me to get to work with the guys and build a relationship with them and have that camaraderie because it is something I missed as the lead writer .... For Smackdown I wouldn't even go out there and do rehearsals anymore. I very rarely talked to the talent because I was just in the writers room or in with Vince going over the show or you know whatever we were doing. I was kind of isolated away on the creative side of the railroad tracks so this is a disconnect. And then the talent calls me on a Wednesday when I'm in prepping for a meeting to go in to pitch a show or whatever ...
Brian "Road Dogg" James On The NXT Takeover Formula
What I love so much about it is and I think it's part of the formula that people like is; look there's five matches. You go to the live event you can probably get six or eight matches but you tune in for Takeover you get five matches, six tops. And all the titles are on the line and it's not every month, so the titles and the story can build a little longer...revenue is great for the for the Takeovers and this last one proved that it doesn't necessarily have to coattail or piggyback a bigger event so it stood on its own, in a town that we don't run a whole bunch anymore and so it did really well.
Brian "Road Dogg" James On Producing The Roderick Strong/Matt Riddle Match at NXT TAKEOVER 25
So I was the producer on that match and I don't think I'm telling stories out of school here. But they came to me and I said 'Guys I'm 50 years old and I got over by ducking a clotheslines and wiggling my knees. I don't dare put my foot into your wrestling ring today because I'm just gonna screw you up. So y'all do your thing and let me wrap my head around all the things you're doing so that I can make sure cameras are in the right place so we can shoot it.'
