Dudley Boyz Not Planning To Go Back To WWE
Dudley Boyz not intending on making a WWE return
The Dudley Boyz recently reunited for the first time in seven years, with the influential tag team returning to the ring as part of IMPACT Wrestling’s IMPACT 1000 celebrations under the Team 3D moniker.
Recent news also revealed that Bubba Ray and D-Von have signed new WWE legends deals, with D-Von later revealing that he was open to return to in-ring competition. However, during an interview with PWInsider’s Mike Johnson, D-Von revealed that the team aren’t looking to return to WWE in an active capacity:
“We did sign legends deals. It was a few months back, so I was very shocked when I saw reports that we had signed a legends deal because it made it seem like we had signed it that day or that we had just signed it, and we didn't. We signed it, and the Dudley Boyz will now be new action figures, in video games, it's more merchandise. That, I'm happy to say, we did sign a legends deal, and we'll see what happens from there.
“I don’t have any plans on going back to WWE. I don't think WWE has any plans on bringing me back, which is fine. I had a good run there. My run was longer than I ever expected, and I'm very grateful and happy with everything I accomplished there. I have no ill feelings for anyone there. I wasn't happy on how things transpired towards the end because, in my opinion, it should have never been done, but it is what it is, and it happens. I'm happy we can still do some business in terms of a legends deal and we can go from there and see what it's all about," D-Von said.
D-Von exited WWE in January 2023, having worked for the company as a backstage producer since 2016.
