Ron Simmons gives a possible reason why WWE broke up The Nation of Domination

WWE Hall Of Famer Ron Simmons did an interview with Wrestling Shoots to talk about several professional wrestling topics. One such topic was the success of The Nation Of Domination. Believe it or not, The Rock was once a member of that faction.

Of course, “The Great One” went on to win several World Title before going on to become one of the world’s biggest movie stars of all time. Simmons reacted to the amount of success The Rock has seen after their time working together:

“My hat off to him,” Simmons said. “I mean if that’s the way things go down, some get to go on and do other things — some don’t, but I’m glad I had a good part in helping him do what he had to do.

“When things weren’t going well for him in the beginning, when they couldn’t get him to where they wanted to get him, I’m glad that I had a good solid position for him to come in where I had a good profound effect on where he is and coming into professional wrestling and then going on to doing what he’s doing now.”

Simmons then discussed his reaction to The Nation Of Domination breaking up. He suggested that some guys “flipping out” might have been the reason WWE made the move:

“I was shocked when it was ending so soon,” Simmons said. “It could have been some of the guys — you know we had some guys in the group that started going crazy, flipping out. Maybe it had something to do with them and their contracts or something. I was shocked when it did end.

“So I don’t know exactly what profound reason why and pinpoint why they did it but you know, I was just shocked when it did end.”
