We’ve never been to Dudleyville, but if Bubba Ray & D-Von are any indication of its populace, we won’t be vacationing there anytime soon. With unnerving, faraway stares behind their taped, thick-rimmed glasses, the brothers from different mothers ventured from ECW in South Philadelphia to WWE in 2000. With the Dudleys came the savage, hardcore tendencies that made them the most dangerous tag team in The Land of the Extreme — namely their penchant for driving their opponents through tables.
Despite their heinous behavior, the take-no-prisoners duo would eventually become fan favorites, sending the WWE Universe to its feet in anticipation whenever Bubba would exclaim, “D-Von, get the tables!” The pine-splintering impact that followed would send crowds around the world into a frenzy.
Not long after debuting in WWE, the Dudleys found themselves at the center of a tag team renaissance in WWE, clashing with Edge & Christian and the Hardys in the first-ever Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match at SummerSlam 2000 and an explosive rematch at WrestleMania X-Seven.
