Brian Girard James (May 20, 1969) better known by his ring name Road Dogg, a American professional wrestler and a former United States Marine.

James is best known for his initial tenure with the World Wrestling Federation as The Roadie from 1994 to 1995 and as "Road Dogg" Jesse James from 1996 to 2001. He is also known for his appearances for several other promotions such as Smoky Mountain Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling, the United States Wrestling Association, the Catch Wrestling Association, and World Wrestling All-Stars.

James has held numerous championships over the course of his three-decade career. In the WWF/E, he found his greatest success as a tag team wrestler and is a six time Tag Team Champion, having won the World Tag Team Championship five-times and the WWE Tag Team Championship once with Billy Gunn as The New Age Outlaws (who became part of D-Generation X). Additionally, James found success in singles competition by becoming a one-times Intercontinental Champion and a one-times Hardcore Champion.

WWE commentator John Layfield charted James's transition from "a cornerstone of the Attitude Era; one of its greatest stars and one of its architects", to "one of the prime creative forces behind WWE". James is a second generation wrestler; his father Bob wrestled, as did his brothers Scott, Brad, and Steve.
