Bubba Ray Dudley Talks Up WWE Return After Royal Rumble Appearance
Brother D-Von is "fetching the tables", apparently...
Royal Rumble surprise Bubba Ray Dudley is keen on returning to WWE - and believes the fans want to see him back in the ring, too.
The tag team specialist told WWE.com he was hopeful an extended run with the company he considers 'home' may be on the cards.
"If the WWE Universe and the WWE higher-ups want to see us here, then yes, hopefully there is a future," said the 43-year-old, most recently known as Bully Ray during a stint with TNA.
"I really say it’s up to the fans. By the reaction tonight, I’d say the fans would love to see us back. And hopefully we can do it."
Adding that partner D-Von was "getting the tables", the star - who entered the 30-man battle royal at number three - was welcomed back with 'E-C-W' chants from the Philadelphia crowd as he tossed Miz and R-Truth from the ring and added he has accumulated a wealth of wrestling experience.
"I’ve always been Bubba Ray Dudley," he said.
"That’s who I am. Throughout the course of your career, sometimes you have to reinvent yourself.
"I’ve always considered WWE my home and where I belong. Sometimes you have to leave a place to truly appreciate what you had.
"Being away from here for so long made me appreciate what I had here. I’m more mature as a person, I’m more mature in the business, and this was a great night for me.
"More importantly, it was a great night for the WWE Universe. I think they had a great time for the five or 10 minutes I was out there.
"If tonight was the only night, great. If it could go on longer, that’s great, too. Hopefully it can."
