A WWE Hall of Famer has admitted that he’s been begging Tony Khan for a job in AEW.
Road Dogg worked with WWE for over a decade as a producer and writer. He eventually worked his way up to head writer of WWE SmackDown before heading to NXT to be a coach and producer.
The former D-Generation X member was eventually released from the company in January 2022.
With Vince McMahon retired and Triple H taking over as Head of Creative for WWE, many fans have wondered if Road Dogg could return to the promotion.
Appearing on Busted Open Radio, the WWE Hall of Famer discussed potentially returning and his desire to work for All Elite Wrestling.
“For a while there, it was hands off and I could write the SmackDown I wanted to write, with help, of course. Then, it got back to the old corporate ways. I would love to go back to NXT. I don’t think I want to go to the main roster. I would love to go somewhere where I have something to offer. What I have to offer is making the television show sweet. I got a couple of ideas about wrestling. I feel like WWE has that. They have everything I have to offer. I don’t know if they’d hire me back. Of course, I’d love to go back to NXT. It’s really cool down there. Shawn (Michaels) and a couple of writers I worked with on SmackDown, got a great rapport with those guys. I don’t know if I’m ready to do the ol’ Windsor nod and fit back into the suits I bought.”
In regards to wanting a job with AEW, Road Dogg admitted to “begging” Tony Khan for a role.
“I’m not retired, I’m unemployed. I see things on Tony Khan’s TV show that appall me. I could help with that. I have been begging him for a job on every platform I can and I want to know the reason why he won’t hire me.”
Road Dogg worked closely with Triple H and Shawn Michaels dating back to their days in D-Generation X during the Attitude Era.
The former WWE Intercontinental Champion also had a long standing partnership with AEW star Billy Gunn as the New Age Outlaws. The two have since reunited for conventions and appearances.
Road Dogg has not been shy to criticize AEW and their product, including recent comments about last Wednesday’s Barbed Wire Everywhere Death Match between Eddie Kingston and Chris Jericho.
