On the most recent episode of Table Talk, D-Von Dudley gave Triple H credit for offering him a producer role in WWE.
“Well, one of the things I like to say is Triple H knew what he was doing. What he did for NXT was truly amazing. So at the Hall of Fame this year, when Triple H came out to sit down, and the fans were saying ‘Thank you Hunter’, I thought it was great. I kind of got goosebumps because when Bubba and I were no longer going to be with WWE, Hunter gave me the opportunity to be a producer backstage. Listen, I could have left and gone elsewhere. Me and Bubba could have still probably been together, maybe went to ROH and wrestled there, but I didn’t want to wrestle anywhere else but WWE. But still, Hunter knew that, and Hunter came to me right before me and Bubba went out and said, ‘Listen, I have an opportunity for you to be a producer.’ At first, I didn’t want to do it because I wanted to wrestle. He said, ‘Well, we have this opportunity. What would you like to do’, and I said, ‘Well, I have no other choice.’ I don’t want to go to Japan because I have some things going on in my personal life at that time that needed to be taken care of here in the States, so I couldn’t possibly leave. So I said, ‘I’ll take it.’ I say thank you so much for the opportunity because if it wasn’t for Hunter, I would not have been a producer.”
During this same interview, Konnor spoke about quitting drinking during the pandemic.
“I did a lot of soul searching for myself, I guess you could say. There was a point I think during my life that I used to drink a lot and I used to let myself go. Sometimes I didn’t know how to say no,” he revealed.
“So what I ended up doing was I realized that I might have had an issue. So what I ended up doing was I took a year of sobriety. I said I have to prove to myself that I’m not an alcoholic, and so for a whole year, I never touched a drink in that year. I was like, ok, because I was like, I did it to myself, I need to fix this myself. That was my mentality and I did it. That was one of my biggest things I did over the course of that first year off.”
“I started drinking in 11th grade and so that’s really terrible to talk about, but I think sometimes it needs to be known and I drank quite a bit. I just was like, dammit, enough’s enough. Even my wife said something to me, and she was like, ‘You know, you’re an alcoholic’ and I was like, ‘No, or am I?’, and then once I questioned it, the moment I questioned that, I said, ‘You son of a b*tch. You just might be an alcoholic. Now, you’ve got to make sure that you’re not.’ It was hard, but it was done and it was attainable.”
