Hit Row were one of the more surprising addiions to the 2021 WWE Draft, when the group of Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott, Ashante ‘Thee’ Adonis, Top Dolla and B-FAB made their way from NXT to SmackDown.
Top Dolla (AJ Francis) recently spoke on the Jobbing Out podcast, where he spoke about the possibility of wrestling Roman Reigns on the blue brand. Francis explained that he would happily lose to Reigns, as being in the ring with him is enough of a victory.
“People are like, ‘I want to see Top Dolla vs. Roman Reigns’ and then they’re like, ‘Yeah, but they’re going to job him out.’ I’m like, ‘I’ll job for Roman Reigns,’ what the hell? Somebody else is like, ‘I want to see Top Dolla vs. John Cena for the promos leading up to it. The match would be great too, but he’d just put John Cena over.’ Let’s be 100% honest, if you’re in the ring with Roman Reigns, you’re winning. Even if you’re not winning, you’re winning if you’re in the ring with Roman Reigns,”
Top Dolla was then asked about other people he hopes to mix it up with on the blue brand, where he named two stars. He said:
“The first person that’s on the SmackDown roster is Sami Zayn. I’ve been a Sami Zayn fan forever, before he was Sami Zayn. There was another guy who had a similar moveset. He was like a generic luchador. Sami Zayn first because when you talk about the best people on the mic in WWE today, he’s at the top of that list. I would love to be able to go back and forth with him on the mic. I’ve already had multiple matches with this person in the Performance Center and he’s like me in the instance where he can do a lot of cool stuff in the ring, but his character stuff is what really makes him shine. Rick Boogs. I would love to face Rick Roogs on SmackDown. We’ve had a lot of cool matches in the PC because he’s one of those people who is actually strong enough to, without my assistance, do a move on me,”
It was reported after the WWE Draft that WWE planned on using Top Dolla as the singles star of Hit Row, so a match with Roman Reigns may not be so farfetched.
