D Von Dudley On His Producer Role
After having an amazing spell of six years in WWE the legendary duo went to the Total Nonstop Action and spent nine years in the promotion. They had a small three are run on the independent circuit after they left the Total Nonstop Action.

D Von Dudley who is also a former ten times Tag Team champion recently spoke to Cut Pro Wrestling where he talked about his recent role as a wrestling producer. He is out of in ring action for quite a time. He said;
“I never wanted to stop. I even went to them and said, ‘Hey, listen. I’m not ready to become a producer, there’s still a lot left in me,’ and they said, ‘Well you know the old man, you know how he is. He wanted the Dudleys and Bubba didn’t play fair, so we’re gonna give you this opportunity to stay with the company’.
“So I looked at it, and it was Triple H, and I said, ‘Do I have a choice?’ and he said, ‘No, not really.’ At that point I was going through a divorce and I would have loved to have gone back to Japan to finish my career, but going through a divorce at the time and having to travel 17 or 18 hours on a plane to Japan every week was not what I wanted to do. So I had to weigh my options and say, okay, here we go.
“I guess I’ll stay here and become a producer. I hated it at first, I didn’t like it. Now, I’ve grown into it. Working with guys like the Usos, the New Day, even Rey and Dominik, the Viking Raiders, The Bludgeon [Brothers], I had great matches with those guys in the ring with them as well as producing their matches. I felt that I was wrong again and not getting the opportunity to wrestle continuously, but you know it is what it is.”
