While the specific stipulations of these agreements still lurk in the shadows of speculation, the duo’s return to the Impact 1000 platform –alongside Bully’s active role in the wrestling circle– casts light on the liberty allotted to them to associate with promotions outside WWE’s ringside protocols.
The Dudley Boyz’s remarkable trajectory had last seen them combat the duo of Sami Zayn and Neville in the 2016 SummerSlam kickoff. Earning them respectable stripes, the duo was hailed into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2018 as part of an esteemed class.
Post-induction, DVon grappled with significant health concerns including back surgery and a stroke in 2020 which temporarily pacified his career’s momentum.
