• WWE Came Real Close To Using TNA Gimmick
A fan wrote on Twitter that if WWE had used the “Bully Ray” character on their programming (Bubba Ray Dudley’s character in TNA), then the character would’ve gotten over big time and that Bubba could’ve been one of the biggest heels in WWE history with that character.
If only Bubba was able to use the "Bully Ray" Character in WWE god only knows how much bigger the bully ray persona could have been! When I see bully ray, I see a character who could have been one of the biggest heel WWE Champions. ugh if only WWE capitalized on it 🙁

Bubba Ray Dudley then noted on Twitter that WWE was real close to using that character:
As I’ve stated in the past, we came close…real close…48hrs away close.
It was suppose to happen on the night we said goodbye on Raw.
Oh well…their loss.
And I am having a blast destroying young boys @ringofhonor
