September 1, 2000 Dallas News article, by Cody Monk: The shakedown: Professional wrestling report Tip for fans: Keep an eye on the security guy 08/31/2000 By Cody Monk / Special Contributor to dallasnews.com For fans at WWF events, predicting what is about to happen in a match doesn't require any advance Internet surfing. Simply watch the big man in the hat. WWF Director of Protective Services Jim Dotson, a former Mr. Tennessee, provides security for all the company's performers. He is most closely associated with The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin. He is also a fan's best chance at figuring out where a match is headed. Dotson is always where the action is. Dotson, 6-0 and a chiseled 260 pounds, is involved in pre-match planning and stationed ringside at almost every event. He will work more than 300 WWF events a year. During Sunday's SummerSlam Triple Threat match with The Rock, HHH and Kurt Angle, Dotson's position in the arena signaled the three wrestlers' next move. "We take a lot of things into the crowd now, much more than we used to," said Dotson, who will play a lieutenant alongside The Rock in the upcoming "Mummy 2." "Our crowd is pretty good. But, then again, you'd probably be good too if you had a guy my size yelling at you to stay back."
