After leaving WWE in 2005, the Dudley Boyz made their long-awaited return to “WWE Raw” on Monday, Aug. 24. The team, Bubba Ray and D-Von, quickly inserted themselves into the hunt for the Tag Team Championships with an attack on New Day, which included putting Xavier Woods through a table with their patented Dudley Death Drop.
During their initial WWE stay, the Dudleys became Tag Team Champions on 10 different occasions. They then went to TNA, winning that company’s Tag Team Championships three times. In 2010, the Dudleys decided to split up and pursue careers as singles wrestlers.
Now they return to a revitalized WWE tag team division, loaded with new teams they can have matches against, including New Day, Los Luchas and the Prime Time Players..
Prior to the team’s reunion on “Raw,” Bubba Ray made a one-night appearance as a surprise entrant in the “Royal Rumble” in January.
