Royal Rumble Surprise Entrant Bubba Ray Dudley Says 'Great To Be Back' In WWE
Other guest appearances were made by Diamond Dallas Page and The Boogeyman... But there was no Randy Orton...
Bubba Ray Dudley has admitted it was "great to be back" in WWE after a surprise appearance in last night's Royal Rumble.
The Philadelphia crowd welcomed the Extreme alumnus - entering the 30-man battle royal at number three - back with 'E-C-W' chants as he tossed Miz and R-Truth from the ring.
And despite mounting an entertaining ruck, the former multiple-time tag team champion and TLC specialist was soon despatched by Luke Harper and Bray Wyatt, who reacquainted their relaxed Wyatt Family links.
The 43-year-old's showing proved popular with the live crowd and on social media - with the Dudley Boy even pulling off a 3D on Miz and ordering Truth to "fetch the tables".
The wrestler, most recently known as Bully Ray in TNA, thanked the crowd for their warm welcome.

Other guest appearances were made by Diamond Dallas Page and The Boogeyman.
DDP, 58, looked to be in tremendous shape and had a Diamond Cutter moment before being pitched out by Rusev.
The Boogeyman had a brief stare down with Bray Wyatt, brought to a conclusion with a spider walk and the ejection of the worm-swallower.
