Road Dogg Calls Triple H “Moral Compass” Of WWE

Road Dogg has explained what it’s like to have Triple H as a boss.

At the height of the Attitude Era, Triple H and Road Dogg were causing nothing but trouble alongside Billy Gunn, X-Pac, and Chyna in D-Generation X. They even got their first sniff of power when DX reformed with Triple H as WWE Champion during the hated McMahon-Helmsley era as the group did everything in its power to keep The Game on top.

Times have changed and the in-ring careers have given way to suits and ties with Road Dogg working as WWE’s Senior Vice President of Live Events while Triple H – now best known as Paul Levesque – runs things day-to-day as the Chief Content Officer.

Speaking on his Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, Road Dogg was asked if Triple H has changed since trading in life in the ring for life in the boardroom and if he knows where to draw the line between being a boss and being a friend:

“It’s both. He’s the one that can balance the two. He’s the moral compass that balances how much it is that I do. I mean, I can take the hint, I can read the room — if it’s time to play, we play. If it’s time to be serious, we just play a little [laughs]. But we’re not gonna stop joking around … like, you could be totally dead serious and one of us says something, and all start laughing, and he [Triple H] will bring us back.”

Triple H’s future in WWE could be uncertain

Paul Levesque assumed creative control in WWE when Vince McMahon announced his retirement in July 2022, but that proved to be a short-lived retirement even for the wrestling business. McMahon returned at the beginning of 2023 and although all parties claim Levesque still runs things day-to-day, the belief is that McMahon is involved in creative again.

The impending takeover by Endeavor of WWE is set to go through on the 12th of September and no place has been found for Levesque on WWE’s new parent company TKO Group’s Board of Directors.
