WWE Hall Of Famer D-Von Dudley recently revealed in an interview that a prominent WWE figure told him during his early days in WWE that he didn’t like him because he was black.

Speaking to PWInsider, Dudley gave details on how he dealt with that person, and shot down speculation about who it could be.

He said that it wasn’t Vince McMahon, JBL or Michael Hayes, as some fans speculated that it could be one of those three people. He added that he had a great working relationship with JBL and Hayes.

“I want people to stop guessing who it was because I’m not gonna say who it was. You want me to say it because now you want to run this person through the mud. And yes, does that person deserve it? Yes. But I’ve always said God has his way of getting back at these people that do things like that … Again, there were witnesses that were there. Bubba [Ray Dudley] was there for the first one. He was the one that actually grabbed me and stopped me from knocking the hell out of this person.

The second time, Bubba was there again, along with Paul Heyman, Tommy Dreamer, Spike Dudley. We were in Indianapolis, Indiana, sitting down in catering when that happened the second time.

Well, I was being very condescending to this individual afterwards. Because this person came to me and said, ‘Hey, D-Von, how’re you doing? How is everything?’ I was like, ‘Why are you saying hi to me? You don’t like me.’ But I would say this in front of the people. ‘What do you mean I don’t like you? Of course I like you.’ I go, ‘No, you don’t. Stop lying. Come on, you know you don’t like me. You’ve admitted it.’ ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about. Of course I do. Why would you think that? No, I’m there for you all the way.’

I would be very condescending with this person. I tried to embarrass him as much as I could in front of people, but without being disrespectful. And so then I realized [I] got underneath this person’s skin, and that person basically stopped talking to me after a while.”
