One WWE Hall of Famer is back on the market.

IMPACT Wrestling recently held tapings for the 1000th episode of its weekly TV show, becoming only the second wrestling promotion in the United States to reach that impressive milestone.

To celebrate, the company brought back some stars of its past to compete and IMPACT Hall of Famers Bully Ray and D-Von Dudley reunited for the first time in seven years to take part.

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that following that match, D-Von Dudley is now looking to get back in the ring and end his retirement:

“D-Von Dudley did an autograph thing yesterday and mentioned that he’s trying to get a deal going with IMPACT. He’s out of retirement, he was let go by WWE as a producer, you gotta pay the bills and I guess he wants to revive the Dudley brothers or feud with Bubba, he could do that too. The Dudleyz could be heels but I guess people want them as babyfaces at this stage of the game.

“He’s wanting to go back to wrestling, whether it’s indies, whether it’s IMPACT or whatever, he’s back on the market as a wrestler.”

When did D-Von Dudley leave WWE?

The Dudley Boyz had their final match in WWE back on the SummerSlam Kick Off show in 2016 where they lost to Neville and Sami Zayn in New York City. Bully Ray left the company after that returning to compete elsewhere while D-Von took up a producing role in WWE. He lasted just over six years in that role, announcing that he’d left WWE in January 2023.
