Top Dolla: “There Was No Leader In The Shield, There Is No Leader In Hit Row”

Last updated

WWE SmackDown Superstar Top Dolla recently appeared on WWE’s After The Bell podcast w/Corey Graves. The Hit Row member discussed several topics during the episode, including how some fans are not happy that he is the ‘leader’ of the group.

“A lot of people get mad saying, ‘Swerve was the leader of Hit Row in NXT and now Hit Row sucks because Top Dolla is the leader on SmackDown.’ There is no leader in Hit Row” Top Dolla began.

“Just like there is no leader in the Shield, there is no leader in Hit Row. We all are leaders because we all feel like we’re stars. We all feel like we were waiting for our opportunity and it just so happened that it all came at the same time” the SmackDown Superstar continued.

“If Swerve is in a storyline like the NXT North American Title and he gets to be the focal point, then we shift. We all have his back. If it’s me and [Adonis] going after the Tag Titles, we shift” Dolla added.

“If it’s me doing a solo thing, we shift. There is no leader, we’re all leaders. That’s what makes our crew cool because there are no egos involved. Do we gain anything from bickering over who should shine more when we could all just shine?” the Hit Row member concluded.
