During a recent episode of the wrestling show "Oh You Didn't Know," WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg provided wrestling enthusiasts with a fascinating insight into his personal top five heels in the sport's history. Known for his impressive career in the ring, Road Dogg's choices shed light on some of the most formidable and captivating antagonists gracing the squared circle.
When asked about his favorite heel tag team, Road Dogg didn't hesitate to name Arn and Ole Anderson his top pick. He recalled being young and impressionable, but even then, he could recognize the sheer brilliance of the Anderson brothers working together as a dominant heel force.
To him, Arn and Ole looked like they could take on anyone and beat them to a pulp, leaving a lasting impact on the audience.
Road Dogg's Perception on Barry Windham
Another name that made Road Dogg's list was Barry Windham, whom he admired as a great heel and an exceptional babyface.
Windham's versatility in portraying hero and villain roles earned him a spot on Road Dogg's esteemed lineup. Expanding his selection beyond the mainstream, Road Dogg turned his attention to other territories in wrestling history.
He recalled the fear-inducing presence of legends like The Sheik and Abdullah The Butcher, who struck terror into the hearts of audiences. Their menacing personas and ruthless in-ring tactics made them unforgettable villains of their time.
Road Dogg's admiration for Orton went beyond his current achievements, as he revealed an unfulfilled wish. He wanted to see Orton face his late brother Brad Armstrong in a singles match. Both performers were incredibly smooth in the ring, and Road Dogg humorously remarked that they would have glided right off each other if they had clashed in the squared circle.
Sadly, Armstrong passed away in 2012 at the age of 50, leaving behind a legacy that continues to be remembered fondly by his peers. In sharing his favorites, Road Dogg's insights gave fans a glimpse into the rich tapestry of wrestling history.
From the golden era of Arn and Ole Anderson to the fear-instilling aura of The Sheik and Abdullah The Butcher and the modern brilliance of Randy Orton, each selection held a special place in the heart of this esteemed Hall of Famer.
As wrestling enthusiasts, we continue to celebrate the legacies left behind by these incredible performers who have shaped the industry we cherish today.
