d-von dudley

For decades The Dudley Boyz dominated the competition in tag team wrestling and they managed to win championships all over the world. But the team went their separate ways in 2016, and it doesn’t sound like a reunion will be happening anytime soon.

During a recent episode of The Cut Pro Wrestling Podcast WWE Hall of Famer D-Von explained that while there are no hard feelings between himself and Bubba Ray Dudley, they don’t do business anymore.

“I wish him nothing but the best. We do not do business anymore. There’s no hard feelings and I don’t have any animosity towards him. It’s just he’s doing his thing and I’m doing my thing. Bubba and I are not at odds with each other. We don’t hate one another. We just went different ways like most tag teams do. This is not a Marty Jannetty and Shawn Michaels thing where we hate each other. We don’t. We just had a difference of opinions at that time and we went our separate ways. Even the wrestling school, he has the wrestling school in Connecticut, I have the one in Winter Park over here. So we both individually own our wrestling schools but we just do things separate now. That’s all.”

D-Von also noted that he never wanted to stop wrestling, but after his run with Bubba came to an end WWE was only willing to give him a role as a producer, which he hated at first.

“I hated it at first, I didn’t like it. Now, I’ve grown into it. Working with guys like the Usos, the New Day, even Rey and Dominik, the Viking Raiders, The Bludgeon [Brothers], I had great matches with those guys in the ring with them as well as producing their matches. I felt that I was wrong again and not getting the opportunity to wrestle continuously, but you know it is what it is.”
