Fandango and Tyler Breeze had a very popular run within WWE, and the former has now discussed who was a big fan of the team backstage.
Having been given a prime spot, Fandango defeated Chris Jericho on his in-ring WWE debut at WrestleMania 29. However, this seemed to become a high point for his career with the company.
Speaking on Felger & Massarotti, Fandango seems to feel that the writing was on the wall for himself and Breeze once they were put together, being put together to try and save them from the “chopping block”.
Breeze and I, we weren’t really doing too much at the time on TV. So, I think they were actually making cuts, this was like 2015 or 2016, and I assume we were probably on the chopping block, and Vince didn’t think it was time to get rid of us quite yet. So what do you do and you got two floundering singles guys? You put them together.”
Despite his release, the man who is now known as Dirty Dango on the independent wrestling scene has discussed how one WWE producer was a fan of the pairing.
Road Dogg was a big advocate for us because he was kind of the same situation back in his day where he was a singles guy, and they put him and Billy together. Obviously, they had a little bit better run than Breezango. But he helped us out a lot and gave us a little life to our careers there in WWE.
In his early time with WWE, Road Dogg was teamed with Jeff Jarrett as ‘The Roadie’, with it soon being discovered that he was behind the lyrics of Jarrett’s theme song. He went on to make fame with Billy Gunn as a member of The New Age Outlaws and also joining D-Generation X. The pair would go on to be six-time WWE Tag Team Champions.
