Bully Ray hints at a possible run with WWE NXT
After being in the WWE roster and ruling the Tag team division multiple times for close to six years as the Dudley Boyz, Bully Rae(then Bubba Ray Dudley) along with his kayfabe half brother D-Von jumped ship to Total Non Stop Action (TNA) Wrestling in 2005. Since then the Dudley Boyz have been missed by the fans of the Attitude Era due to the dearth of credible tag teams in the company.
On January 2015, at Royal Rumble Bully Ray (reprising his role as Bubba Ray Dudley) made a guest appearance and competed in the titular match as a surprise entrant. His stay was cut short by Bray Wyatt when he was eliminated by the latter. Since then speculations continue to rise regarding his return to the company’s fold. On a twitter Q&A session this weekend, Bully Ray strongly hinted at an appearance in NXT. He also answered questions about a possible return to the WWE and seemed very open to the prospect. Also regarding his return to Impact on Thursday last week, Bully confirmed via his twitter account that it was a one-time deal. According to reports he has not signed a new contract with the company. Following is what he posted in his twitter account:
Also if backstage rumours are to be believed Velvet Sky is reportedly back with TNA on a regular basis. Her character was written off when she was fired after opening the fired briefcase during the Feast or Fired match, after her contract had expired last January.
