Devon Dudley Comments on His Impact In-Ring Return at Impact 1000
This past Thursday’s Impact 1000 show for Impact Wrestling featuring Devon and Bully Ray reuniting as Team 3D for a match against the Desi Hit Squad on the show.
PWInsider Elite held a recent interview with Devon. One of the topics discussed included Devon’s thoughts about his recent in-ring appearance at Impact 1000 and if he has had talks with Impact for a potential in-ring return from retirement.
“There is no deal to be made. Nothing was talked about with IMPACT. Bubba and I talked about maybe continuing this. Again, I told him I would speak it over with my wife and family. That’s something I’ll talk about with them and see if that’s something I would want to do. I don’t see it being a problem if they said ‘no.’ If IMPACT said, ‘Devon, we would like you to come back and do more dates,’ I’d be a fool not to if I’m lucky enough to do it. If the fans wanted me and Bubba to be back, and I think they expressed that they were happy that we were back and wanted to see more. If that’s the case, I wouldn’t mind touching ground on it, but nothing has been said. It was something me and Bubba have said on social media and all the boys and the fans, ‘It’s time to Testify,’ let’s do it. Some people are taking it the wrong way. If they want to hope, and sit there and put my name in social media and give it life, have fun with it. I’m telling you, for the record, I’m not sure what I’m doing right now. I’m going to take the options that might come, if they do come, and I’ll make my decision then. As far as having a deal or talking things with IMPACT, that’s not true, I’m not doing that. The only people I’m talking to are my family, my wife, my kids, and Bubba. At the end of the day, he and I have to tag together. Unless you hear something from me or Bubba personally, the rumors are just rumors and people need to stop.”
