Report: ‘Road Dogg’ Brian James Returns To WWE As Senior Vice President Of Live Events

Road Dogg” Brian James has reportedly returned to WWE in an executive position.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider first reported the news on August 22. As of this writing, it’s unclear what the position is and when he will start it. James is not at Monday’s episode of WWE RAW, but word is making the rounds that he’s back. Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful subsequently confirmed the news in a tweet.

Update: Johnson later specified that James will be the company’s new Senior Vice President of Live Events. Jeff Jarrett previously held the role until he departed the position this past week.

James previously spent several years with the company, and he was on Triple H’s team throughout the black-and-gold era of WWE NXT. James, among other officials, was released in January 2022. Before that, he had been a producer, and he was the co-head writer of WWE SmackDown at one point until he left the position and shifted to NXT. He also taught classes about promos and character development at the WWE Performance Center.

WWE remains in the early stages of a substantial regime change. Vince McMahon retired on July 22, and Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan were subsequently named co-CEOs. Triple H was named as the head of creative on July 25, and James’ return marks the first member of his inner circle to be brought back to the company as part of this new era.
