D-Von Dudley’s sons Terrence & Terrell Hughes, known as TNT, are trying to find their way in the pro wrestling business.
Although they made appearances in AEW, TNT wasn’t destined to stay there, according to their father. TNT broke into the business in 2015 and worked for various indy promotions.
TNT first made an appearance on AEW programming in November 2020 where they worked on an episode of Dark. Their last AEW appearance came in July when they lost to The Varsity Blonds (Brian Pillman Jr. & Griff Garrison).
While speaking to the A2TheK Wrestling show, D-Von Dudley talked about his sons no longer working for AEW as he feels WWE would be a better spot for them now that Triple H is in charge of creative. However, they’ve yet to sign contracts with WWE.
“Well, right now, they’re no longer doing things with AEW. We’re trying to get them to maybe come to NXT and start doing their thing over here now, which would be great. I’m very excited about it. They just need to polish up on a couple of things, and we’re bringing them in. You know, we would love to bring them in. I think they’ll be ready when the time comes, when the opportunity is given. I think they’ll be ready. Again, we got to polish up a few things and make sure they’ll be NXT-ready. That’s the thing. There’s no rush. They’re 27 years old. Let them take all the time in the world to polish up and get ready.
I just don’t think AEW will be the right fit for them. I think they know that. We’re all on the same page. I think WWE will be the right fit for them, especially with Paul being in charge and his vision with Shawn Michaels and Matt Bloom. I feel a lot better where I can trust my sons in the business under the Paul Levesque regime. I’m happy they would be under the Triple H regime because I love the way things are running here now, and there’s nothing but positive vibes here in NXT and on the main roster.”
