Bubba Ray Dudley recently spoke with Channel Guide Magazine to promote Sunday’s Hell in a Cell, where he teams with Devon against the tag champs New Day. Some of the topics were if his real-life girlfriend Velvet Sky would become a WWE diva and how his return to the promotion started.
Velvey Sky 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.”
Returning To WWE
“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 its Philly, so he’ll get a nice little reaction.’ I didn’t think they were expecting anything like that.”
Other topics discussed include WWE now vs. 10 years ago, New Day, and his singles run.
