• Bubba Ray Dudley Reveals What Vince McMahon Said To Him After He Went 5 Minutes Over Allotted Time On LIVE SmackDown
During his appearance on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions, Bubba Ray Dudley talked about accountability in WWE.
He also recalled a match where The Dudley Boyz went 5 minutes over their allotted time on a LIVE episode of SmackDown and Vince McMahon’s reaction to it.
Below is what Bubba said:
“Here’s where the WWE differs from every other company. The accountability of coming back through the curtain. With somebody looking down at you over the edge of those glasses like this.
Vince is the ultimate accountability, and he’s right there when you come back through, and you know by that look whether you did a good job for him tonight or you didn’t do a good job for him tonight.
There were degrees of accountability in other companies, but never that type of accountability. I loved it. I enjoyed it. This is all personally I ever needed.
I don’t chase the hug. I don’t sit in the hallway and wait for Vince to pass just so he can say, ‘good job tonight, pal!’ so I have a good 300-mile drive from Sheboygan to Madison. He’s gonna let you know. If he’s not happy, he’ll call you over.
I’ll never forget one night, Dudleys-RTC (Right To Censor). Live SmackDown, Madison Square Garden, we went 5 minutes over on live TV. 5 Minutes. That’s grounds for – your bags are packed, they’re waiting for you. But we blew the roof off of The Garden. It went so well.
I don’t even get one foot through the curtain, and he’s right here, and he says, ‘if you ever go over on my LIVE TV again, it better be as good as that,’ and he walked away.”
