15. “WWE is not going to allow creations that got over someplace else to come in and rule their world” – Bubba Ray Dudley On The BROKEN Gimmick

During a recent interview with USA Today, Bubba Ray Dudley discussed the possibility of WWE using the “BROKEN” gimmick, his Bully Ray gimmick in TNA & more. Below are the highlights:

How his character has evolved from Bubba in ECW, WWF/E to Bully Ray in TNA:

“Bully Ray is Bad Guy 101. I did not reinvent the wheel. I just stuck to the plan of being an effective bad guy and I just put my own little twists on it. …I became that heel that I knew I could be. I got myself in the best shape that I’ve ever been in because I knew that was going to get people to sit up and take notice immediately. I’ve had this speaking ability that I’ve had my entire career that nobody really remembered since the days of ECW. For six years in WWE, I didn’t really get to talk too much and then six years as a tag team in TNA, I didn’t get to talk that much. Now here comes Bully Ray cutting some of the best heel promos in the business.”

Possibility of WWE using the “BROKEN” gimmick:

“I think that they will get the best of both worlds. They can milk this Hardy run for every dime it’s worth and then they can evolve into a version of the Broken Universe that the WWE sees fits. WWE is not going to allow creations that got over someplace else to come in and rule their world. It’s not going to happen. It didn’t happen with the Bullet Club and it’s not going to happen with Matt Hardy’s Broken Universe. They are going to have to put their stamp of approval on it and have their creative input.”
