During an interview with Chris Van Vliet, 2018 WWE Hall of Famer D-Von Dudley revealed that he currently isn’t interested in returning to WWE any time soon, after he was released earlier this year.
Here’s what the ECW/WWF Tag Team Legend had to say:
“I don’t have any ill feelings, but I’m done. I think I’m finished. I’m not gonna say never. Because in this business, you never say never.
I do know that. But at the same token, the way I feel right now, there’s no reason for me to go back. There’s nothing there for me anymore.
Everybody who I came up in the business with talent-wise is pretty much almost gone.
But, you know, again, that shouldn’t matter because you’re not there for friends. They have to make money and to have a job.
Vince McMahon, I thank Triple H, Stephanie, and the whole McMahon family for allowing me to come in there. And to do what I did, I have no hard feelings.
I have none whatsoever. We agreed to disagree towards the end. And that was when I knew that it was time to leave.”
After the end of The Dudley Boyz, a legendary ECW/WWF/WWE/TNA Tag Team, in 2016, both members went their separate ways. While D-Von stayed with WWE behind the scenes, Bubba Ray returned to the independent scene (Ring of Honor, …) and IMPACT Wrestling to continue wrestling, using his former TNA gimmick ‘Bully Ray’.
D-Von worked for WWE – mostly as a backstage producer – until they parted ways in January 2023.
