The Dudley Boyz are one of the most iconic tag teams in history, revolutionizing the hardcore style of wrestling—but one member does not care if they get inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame. D-Von and Bubba Ray won 10 Tag Team Championships together in the WWE, plus eight ECW World Tag Team titles.
After spending time in TNA, The Dudley Boyz returned to WWE in late 2015, where they spent another year before leaving the company. Bubba Ray went on to compete in Ring of Honor before retiring earlier this year.
However, it's safe to assume this tag team will be inducted into the Hall of Fame someday. They were among the very best in the Attitude and Ruthless Aggression Eras and were driving forces promoting the tag team division.
Bubba Ray recently did an interview with Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV Entertainment and was asked about his thoughts on possibly being in the WWE Hall of Fame someday. Here's what Bubba Ray said:
"I don't care about the Hall of Fame. I get inducted into the Hall of Fame every single night I go through that curtain. This is my Hall of Fame. It's the fans. If they're cheering, if they're booing, if they're laughing, crying or throwing tomatoes at my head I don't care. That's the Hall of Fame to me. I don't need anything else and I've never really needed anything else."
That's a strong and confident response from Bubba Ray, who also added that it would be "cool" if they get inducted, otherwise he won't "lose an ounce of sleep over it." He and D-Von brought tremendous entertainment to the fans and often received roaring cheers from the crowd in their careers—even as heels.
Whether or not they get into the WWE Hall of Fame someday, The Dudley Boyz were a successful duo, and that'll never change. They dominated the wrestling world for nearly two decades, and it would be shocking if Vince McMahon didn't give them a call to the Hall.
But one thing is for sure, Bubba Ray simply won't care if the WWE chooses not to induct the men who best represent Dudleyville.
