Bully Ray Reveals Last-Minute WWE WrestleMania 40 Appearance

One Big Thing

Bully Ray, formerly known as Bubba Ray Dudley, made a surprise appearance as the special guest referee for the Philadelphia Street Fight between The Pride and The Final Testament at WrestleMania 40.

How It Happened

Bully Ray detailed how his shocking appearance came about:

  • It was a last-minute decision, just a couple of days before the event.
  • WWE called him with the idea, and he thought it was a no-brainer, especially with the event taking place in Philadelphia, where he honed his craft at the infamous ECW arena.

Why It Matters

Bully Ray’s appearance at WrestleMania 40 adds to his collection of memorable WrestleMania moments. Being a surprise referee in his hometown of Philadelphia made this experience stand out from his previous appearances:

  • He described it as the most fun he’s ever had at WrestleMania.
  • Without the pressure of performing as a wrestler, he was able to enjoy the moment more.
  • If this was his last time walking down the ramp at WrestleMania, he’s content with it happening in Philadelphia.

Comparing to Royal Rumble 2015

Bully Ray compared his WrestleMania 40 appearance to his surprise entry in the 2015 Royal Rumble:

  • The wall of sound from the crowd’s reaction was overwhelming.
  • In an arena, the sound comes right at you, as opposed to a stadium where it goes up.
  • The pop from the crowd was so intense that he blacked out and doesn’t remember what happened.
