The Dudley Boyz were 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 their little brother Spike Dudley. Bubba and D-Von are widely known for their tenure with 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. LoMonaco currently uses the ring name Bully Ray while Hughes wrestles as Devon. Both Devon and Bully are apart of the villianous faction Aces & Eights, where Ray is the reigning TNA World Heavyweight Champion while Devon is the reigning TNA Television Champion.
LoMonaco and Hughes are officially recognized by TNA as 24 time World Tag Team Champions, making them the most decorated tag team in history. They are the only team to have held the WWE, WWF, 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.
Famous quotes containing the word team:
“Is my team ploughing,
That I was used to drive
And hear the harness jingle
When I was man alive?”
