Hall of Famer Claims Vince McMahon Isn’t Completely Aware of Some WWE ‘Under’ Show Stars (Exclusive)
“Road Dogg” Brian James has claimed that Vince McMahon isn’t exactly familiar with a few superstars who work on WWE’s “underneath” shows.
Speaking on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s The Wrestling Outlaws, James noted that McMahon usually only meets a handful of NXT Superstars in the elevator. He wouldn’t know exactly who they were.
The brief interaction mostly sparked a conversation with McMahon who curiously wanted to know more about a certain superstar:
“Some of the guys that work on the shows below that show up in the elevator, going up to the fourth floor is the only time he sees people and he’ll see NXT people in there and go, ‘Hey, who’s this or that ?’ You see what I mean? And that’s a conversation starter, but the man works a lot,” Brian James said. [4:12-4:33]

“Bro, people find it hard to believe and Brian can support me here. They find it hard to believe, bro, he’s not looking at any other product. I guarantee you he didn’t know Surfer Sting, he didn’t I know young Sting, he didn’t know Crow Sting I guarantee my brother Sure he knew Sting’s name, but to really know his career I mean Brian, I guarantee Vince didn’t know.
