Bubba Ray Dudley On WWE Return, Velvet Sky Possibly Joining WWE, What Aspiring Wrestlers Should Not Do

WWE star Bubba Ray Dudley recently spoke with Channel Guide Magazine, here are some highlights:

On how his WWE return at the Royal Rumble happened:

“The very first person I spoke to was Road Dogg. He was the one who reached out saying, ‘Hey Bubba, would you be interested in coming to the Royal Rumble? I told him yes. I always had a great working relationship with him in the ring and a good working relationship outside of the ring. Me and D-Von won our first WWE tag team championship from the New Age Outlaws. He got in touch with me. That’s how it all started. It was pretty funny because I think a lot of people within WWE were shocked by the reaction. I think they all thought, ‘Oh it’s Philly, so he’ll get a nice little reaction.’ I didn’t think they were expecting anything like that.”

On Velvet Sky possibly joining WWE:

“It’s no secret that me and Velvet [Sky] are together. If you go on Twitter I think the entire Twitter-verse would like to see that. She is probably the most over female wrestler out there that has never been in WWE. She looks phenomenal. I think the fans and the WWE Universe would love to see her in a WWE ring. Who knows? Maybe it will happen one day.”

On aspiring wrestlers starting GoFundMe campaigns:

“I think a wrestler that goes out there and asks people for money so they can chase their dream is pathetic. There is something within the wrestling industry called ‘paying your dues.’ Paying your dues doesn’t just mean financially with money. It’s about living in the back of your car, eating bologna sandwiches. You have to learn how to lose before you learn how to win. You have to have it rough in this industry first. Then you can appreciate it more when you make it.”
