Bully Ray (a.k.a. Bubba Ray Dudley) recently revealed that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon had offered him a chance to become a WWE producer role in the past. The WWE Hall of Famer’s long-time tag team partner, D-Von Dudley, has worked for WWE as a producer since 2016. Brock Lesnar Offered WWE Rematch In UFC?
Bully Ray turned down the offer of Vince McMahon
Speaking on Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw, Bully Ray said he has also been approached about the backstage position. However, he turned down McMahon’s offer because he thinks the role is not what it used to be.
“Vince has offered me a position in the past. He has told me, ‘When you’re ready, I’d love to have you here as a producer.’ I don’t think the job is the same job it used to be when you [Gerald Brisco] were a producer or an agent. I believe the producers and agents now just kind of carry the marching orders of creative to the boys, and I don’t think the boys have as much input into things these days,” Bully Ray said.
Bully Ray had a stint in WWE as an in-ring competitor between 1999 and 2005. He later returned to the company for another one-year run alongside D-Von Dudley between 2015 and 2016.
