– Bubba Ray Dudley recently spoke with Sky Sports to promote WWE’s WrestleMania 32. Below are highlights:
Are the Dudley Boyz the best tag-team in wrestling history?
Bubba Ray: When you talk about the best, it’s all subjective. Are we the greatest ever? Well, if you go by the amount of championships we’ve won, the answer is yes. I’m just glad people talk about D-Von and I in the same breath as they talk about the Road Warriors, the Steiners, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, the Midnight Express, the Wild Samoans and the Freebirds. The list goes on. They’re all great tag-teams so when people mention the Dudleyz, we’re flattered to be there.
The Hardyz and Edge & Christian, during their era, were two of the greatest. But they haven’t had the longevity that the Dudleyz have had. They weren’t together for nearly 20 years like D-Von and I. But the one thing is undeniable – it’s a fact – the Dudleyz are the most successful and the most decorated tag-team of all time. Period.
What are your plans for WrestleMania 32 in April? Perhaps a match against D-Von?
Bubba Ray: I don’t think me and D-Von have any interest in fighting each other. We’ve had our differences and fought each other in the past but everything is good in Dudleyville right now. What you should expect from us over the next few weeks is to do everything and anything we can do to make an impact in the WWE to give ourselves the best opportunity to be at WrestleMania.
WrestleMania is the Super Bowl and the World Series of the WWE so we’re all excited at this time of year, especially since we’re heading to Dallas, Texas, for the biggest WrestleMania of all time. For me, as a kid who grew up watching all the WrestleManias, I remember WrestleMania III in front of 93,000 people. Now this year will break that record.
Who would you have chosen to wrestle The Undertaker at WrestleMania?
Bubba Ray: If it were up to me, I’d love to see Undertaker against Sting. That’s an incredible spectacle. But I don’t know if that can happen anymore. Right now? I think the best match for the Undertaker would have been a handicap match against the Dudley Boyz. I fancy our chances pretty well. Whatever kind of match ‘The Deadman’ wants to have, we’d be happy to beat him in it.
