"Road Dogg" BG James recently spoke with The Miami Herald to promote WWE's January 31st live event in Miami. Here are some highlights:
WWE putting focus on tag teams again:
"The credit goes to the stars themselves for sure. I think it can also be attributed to the fact we focus a little more on the tag division. We have spent a little more energy and time in developing the tag team division. I think it was sorely missed when there weren't prominent tag teams on the landscape. I think it's been really appreciated now that their back. We got a lot of great teams that have stepped up in the last year and think will continue to step up this year. I think there are many things it can be attributed to, but just the fact that it's thriving and successful is awesome, especially for me to watch, because I was a tag team wrestler and love tag team wrestling."
Giving advice to the new Superstars:
"I tell them to not party too much, especially nowadays. You know, back when I was living life crazy, cell phones were just coming out. Now everybody has got one and is filming you. When you are on top of the world, there ain't nowhere to go but down. So I tell them to keep their head on their shoulders. I say if they want to live a long life and be prosperous and reap what they sow and live off the rewards, then they have to keep a good head on their shoulders and be smart about it. It's not just a party. This is a career. I wish I would have looked at it as such 15-20 years ago, but I'm looking at it that way now. That's what I tell them, and I ain't afraid to tell them. Don't party too hard and think about this as your career. This is your job."
2014 being WWE's best year:
"The creative writing team is on point now. Everybody is working hard to get these guys to superstardom. I think you've seen 2013 look up. Business has picked up as J.R. [Jim Ross] would say. I just think 2014 is going to be on the upswing. I'm looking forward to it and think the WWE Universe will look forward to it as well."
