• Will the Dudley Boys reform?
Bully said: “There is not one thing left for me and Devon to do as a tag team. I don’t know why we would, why we should. We can’t top what we’ve done, and I’m having a blast doing what I’m doing right now. It’s new. It’s enjoyable. It’s like having a brand new girlfriend. Everything is cool.
“I’m definitely not retiring either. I’ve got too much left in me.
“You can’t stop rock-n-roll, and you can’t stop me.”
• TNA Impact Wrestling review
“As a student of pro wrestling and watching everything that’s going on, when I look at the TNA locker-room, I can honestly say it’s the best cross-section of pro wrestlers and entertainers and athletes that are out there,” Bully said.
“You’ve got icons like [Hulk] Hogan and Sting. You’ve got guys who have been doing it at a top level for a long time like myself and Kurt [Angle] and Jeff Hardy, and then you have the most important level, the work horses of the company, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode, [Cowboy James] Storm, Kaz, [Christopher] Daniels, [Austin] Aries. You have great X Division wrestlers. You got some of the hottest girls out there. Everything you can possibly want in pro wrestling company, you can find in TNA.”
