WWE has been known to bring back former big names in the past, whether it is for random WrestleMania appearances or simply to help elevate some younger talent. Each time, it has been cool to see the older stars return, but only when it was done correctly. The case of Batista should be something people see as an example for how to not book a return. This was not on Dave, but rather WWE for his booking. However, fans took booking issues out on Batista, which wasn’t fair. Now, it seems like a useful return could be coming.
According to Cageside Seats, it appears WWE may be bringing in The Dudley Boyz to have a program with Erick Rowan and Luke Harper. There is also a big chance they will have a big tag team run with WWE, which will most likely be a way to help WWE elevate their tag division and give The Dudley Boyz their one final run in WWE before they call it a career.
While Bubba Ray Dudley has had large success in TNA with his singles career and still feels like he has something to add as a performer in that realm, Devon is mostly retired at this point. However, both have expressed a desire to return to WWE over the last number of years. At the Royal Rumble this past year, Bubba made his return to a massive ovation. It was amazing to see, and there was a hope that WWE would find a way to bring him back in some way.
The Dudley Boyz would be an amazing addition to the road agent staff for the next year or so to help bring up the young tag team performers. Both are trainers as well, which puts them in a position where they can help train new talent as well as have a cool final run in WWE. People should treat this run similar to what we saw with The New Age Outlaws a while back.
A program with Rowan and Harper would be fun to see for sure as both tag teams are known for their brawling and hard-hitting tactics. All four guys are big guys, and each has a style that can be seen as stiff yet effective. The Dudley Boyz being back would be great for WWE. They are a legendary tag team that has won gold in every promotion they have taken part as a team. Whether they have a final run with the WWE Tag Titles or not, it would be great just to see them back again for sure.
