Hall of Famer Road Dogg recently said that Vince McMahon had high hopes for former WWE star Lars Sullivan.
Lars would go on to be known as one of the most controversial WWE Superstars of the modern era. He made his television debut on the April 12, 2017 episode of NXT. His short-lived main roster tenure came to an end when the company released him in January 2021.
Oh you didn’t know? podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg extensively praised Lars Sullivan’s incredible physique. She also added that the 34-year-old star used to respect her when they met.
“To be honest I didn’t know Lars that well. I thought Lars was going to be something special in this industry, a nice guy when I met him, respected. I don’t want to use the word derogatorily wanted, but freak of nature as he is, he has, I don’t know what it’s called, but gigantism or whatever. But so he’s maybe six, two or three, but like a man 320 pounds The muscles were, you know what I mean? Like it was unbelievable.”
Road Dogg stated that Vince McMahon thought Lars was destined for greatness in the distant future. According to Doug, Vince McMahon’s expectations put “too much pressure” on Sullivan and eventually forced him to leave pro wrestling.
“And so I thought oh, this guy’s going to be somebody, Vince thought the same thing. I think it put a lot of pressure on the kid and he just backed out of it all. You know what I mean? ? And so I don’t know but I thought, I thought it would be someone. And the other kid is the one who beat The Miz, and won about 12 grand that night in a ladder match on Monday Night Raw,” he said.
