Road Dogg Recalls Being Detained After WCW Invasion By DX

Road Dogg cuts a promo

WWE Hall Of Famer Road Dogg has discussed the time he was detained following a skit during the Monday Night Wars.

The invasion of WCW by D-Generation X was one of the points where shots were officially fired at the competition. The most memorable moment of this in 1998 was when the faction drove a tank right up to The Norfolk Scope where WCW was holding Monday Nitro.

What many won’t remember is that two weeks later there was a similar invasion, with Road Dogg’s group pulling up with similar antics outside CNN Center in Atlanta, Georgia – the home of WCW’s parent company.

Speaking on his Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, Road Dogg has opened up on how this second attempt was rather more awkward than the first, with DX ending up being detained by police in a situation which could have escalated.

I didn’t know about that one until we were literally on a plane to get down there. I remember a lot of stuff about that because that one was scarier to me because there was a lot of law enforcement involved.

It wasn’t too long after [the Nitro invasion] that they sent us down there. I laugh at these stories because I was ridiculous. I don’t recommend anybody do this stuff. When we went to CNN Center, I had a bunch of marijuana on me so we had that hidden in the van.

The cops came. It was scary. I was scared at that time because I thought, ‘Now we’re poking the bear for real.’ They called the cops on us and they detained us momentarily. We were literally detained. Not in a prison or a county jail, but we were detained. It got heated for a second.

It felt like it was longer than 30 minutes, especially with the amount of weed I had tucked in the backseat of the charter van. I was immediately sweating, thinking, ‘this is it, I’m going to jail in Atlanta.’ It was fine. They cited us. I think there was a donation made to the policeman’s ball or something and we went away.

Road Dogg also recently opened up on why he thinks The New Age Outlaws will never be inducted in to the WWE Hall Of Fame.
