Road Dogg about Vader and how he confronted him!

Road Dogg was a guest on Road Dogg on Oh… You Didn’t Know? the podcast and one of the topics was Vader. Dogg talked about his relationship with him and the advice he received from his brother, Steve.
“Same as everybody else’s,” James said on his experience working with Vader, as quoted by wrestlinginc.

“It takes a good man to beat me but it doesn’t take long, Vader beat me in 90 seconds. I worked with Vader on a couple loops and finally I called my brother, Steve, who worked with him in Japan and I said ‘man, he’s beating my brains out.

“Every night, I just get beat up for six minutes.’ And he said ‘well, you’ve got to get his respect.’ I said ‘how do you do that? Carry his bag? What do you want me to do?’ He said ‘you’ve got to punch him in the head as hard as you can.’ I said ‘wait, what? Big Van Vader, you want me to punch him in the head as hard as I can?’ He said ‘yeah, I promise you, if you get his respect physically, it’ll be easy smooth sailing.’


Fight

After he confronted him things became different.

Truth be told, I’ll never forget it as long as I live, he got me back in the corner and he’d hit you with those fists, he hit me with like four or five of them that were good, good snug shots. I dugged out from under one and I just peppered him in the forehead with not my closed fist, but kind of my fist, and I hit him about six times really, really hard in the head.

“I backed all the way to the opposite turnbuckle and put my hands up and just looked at him and I was saying, ‘hey man, I’m sorry but if I’m getting my butt beat, I might as well get some punches in.’ My brother was not lying, it was smooth sailing from then on.

Every match, even later in that match, it was better. Every match after that it was, ‘hey man, what do you want to do?’ He was a good guy, he really was, but you just had to get to know him because he was a baby bull for sure”.
