WWE Legend Heading To IMPACT Wrestling?

A WWE Hall of Famer will be on their way to IMPACT pretty soon...

Road Dogg

Brian 'Road Dogg' James will be at IMPACT Wrestling's Emergence show on 12 August.

The WWE Hall of Famer confirmed this on a recent episode of his Oh You Didn't Know podcast. James stated that he would be "sitting with the IMPACT crew" for Emergence and a television taping, then do AdFreeShows.com's Top Guys Weekend in Chicago in September.

Said Road Dogg (h/t Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online):-

"I've got some future events I'm looking forward to. I'm going to fly to Chicago in a couple of weeks and just sit with the Impact crew as they do their pay-per-view and their television taping and then the next week I think in Chicago, the top guy weekend for Ads Free. So, I'm looking forward to some upcoming events."

The former D-Generation X member has been unemployed since being let go from his WWE Performance Center role in January, having previously served as a writer, producer, and in other jobs for the market leaders since 2011. Recently, James admitted to "begging" AEW founder and CEO Tony Khan for a job.

When asked about his AEW overtures on Busted Open Radio recently, James claimed he was switching tactics - but would still love to work there:-

"I'm going to change my tactic, watch this. I don't want a job, Tony. I'm good, thank you. Truth be told, I'd love to work there because I do think I could make his television show better for the viewer. Having said that, I'm having a really good time right now doing the podcast, doing other people's podcasts, doing stuff like this, doing the conventions and the signings and stuff. It's so much fun and I get to spend time with my family. I'm in a really good place."

Whether or not Road Dogg's IMPACT work next week could lead to a more regular role is currently unclear.
