Vince McMahon Reportedly Saw Hit Row's Top Dolla As A WWE Star

Hit Row were released earlier this month

Vince McMahon reportedly saw Top Dolla as a future star for WWE. 

Dolla, along with Hit Row teammates Isiah 'Swerve' Scott and Ashante 'Thee' Adonis, was released by WWE in the most recent round of budget cuts, amid reports that Dolla had heat on him backstage. 

According to Dave Meltzer, Dolla was the one that WWE Chairman McMahon had identified as the breakout star of the group and, when the decision came to release him, the rest of the stable was shown the door as well.

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer said: "I know it sounds really weird [to release all of Hit Row when Top Dolla was the only one with heat on him] but here's the thing, he's the one that Vince saw as a star. The other guys just came along with the package.

"Ashante Thee Adonis was just a guy that they put in the group. It's not like he's a great wrestler. He's just a guy, but he got put in the group and that's what could have made a career for him — because that's what Xavier Woods was.

"I mean not to say Xavier Woods isn't very good now, he is very good. When Xavier Woods came along, he was just a guy and the group became a big star and he became a big star in the group. That was the best possible thing for Ashante, except for unlike the New Day where they are around for years and years and years these guys got fired right away. But they thought AJ Francis was the star because he's the big guy and the big personality."
