D-Von Dudley: I Have Not Talked To IMPACT About Returning

D-Von Dudley clarifies his thoughts on his future following his return to the ring at IMPACT 1000.

Dudley wrestled for the first time since 2016 at IMPACT 1000 on September 9. There, the WWE Hall of Famer reunited with his Team 3D partner Bully Ray.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer subsequently reported that Dudley told fans at an autographic signing that he was trying to land a deal with IMPACT Wrestling.

Speaking to Mike Johnson at PWInsider, Devon discussed the situation. (H/t Jeremy Lambert of Fightful for the transcription)

“There is no deal to be made,” D-Von Dudley said. “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.”

D-Von Dudley Will Take The Options That Might Come As They Come

D-Von Dudley continued by noting that he’s not sure what he’s doing at the moment. He stated that he will take the options as they come. The legend then made it clear that he has not talked about a deal with IMPACT.

“If they want to hope, and sit there and put my name in social media and give it life, have fun with it,” Dudley said. “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.”
