The Dudley Boyz have done it all in the wrestling business as they held multiple championships in several different promotions, including WWE, TNA Wrestling, and ECW.

D-Von Dudley and Bubba Ray Dudley went their separate ways in 2016 as D-Von stayed with WWE to transition into being a producer while Bubba Ray went to ROH.

D-Von noted in an interview last year that WWE tried to re-sign them in 2016 after returning in 2015, but Bubba Ray thought they were not being treated fairly in terms of their position.

D-Von wanted to end his career in WWE while Bubbawanted to do his Bully Ray character instead of staying as a tag team, but Vince McMahon didn’t want to do that. D-von stated that he and Bubba Ray no longer did business, leading some to believe that the pair were no longer on good terms.

While speaking to the A2TheK Wrestling show, D-Von Dudley talked about the rumored heat between them.

“Yeah, actually, we just spoke yesterday about another autograph signing we’re going to do together. A lot of people thought that me and Bubba were at odds, and we weren’t at odds. It was just that him and I needed a break. He and I were together for 20 years. I saw him more than I saw my first two wives, which wasn’t a bad idea, trust me. Sometimes, you just need a break, and that’s what we did. We took a break, and now we’re reunited again.”

Bubba Ray will take on Matt Cardona in December, and D-Von will be in his long-time partner’s corner. Click below for the entire interview:
