The Dudley Boyz was a professional wrestling tag team, consisting of Mark LoMonaco and Devon Hughes, who wrestled under the names Buh Buh Ray/Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley. The team would also be joined by various Dudley family members, notably Matt Hyson, who wrestled as their little brother Spike Dudley. Bubba and D-Von are widely known for their work in the World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWF/E) and Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) for their success as a tag team, being highly touted as the most decorated tag team in professional wrestling history. The team wrestled as the Dudley Boyz until joining Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, where due to WWE owning the rights to their names they became known as Brother Ray and Brother Devon of Team 3D (named after their finishing move the Dudley Death Drop). Hyson later signed with TNA and again sided with Team 3D as Brother Runt. While in TNA the team disbanded when Ray turned on Devon, and both are now singles competitors. LoMonaco currently wrestles as Bully Ray while Hughes simply wrestles as Devon.
LoMonaco and Hughes are officially recognized by TNA as 23 time World Tag Team Champions, making them the most decorated tag team in history. They are the only team to have held the WWE, World, ECW, WCW, NWA, TNA, and IWGP Tag Team Championships. They are also famously known for using tables in their matches, usually to drive their opponent through one with their finishing move. On May 21, 2007, Brother Ray and Devon opened the Team 3D Academy of Professional Wrestling and Sports Entertainment at the X-Cel Fitness Gym in Kissimmee, Florida.
