The Dudley Boyz are going into this year's WWE Hall of Fame, and for them, it's about celebrating the last great tag team.
That's how Bubba Ray Dudley feels, anyway. Speaking to CBS Sports, Bubba Ray feels that no other team will be able to do what they have accomplished.
"The legacy of the Dudley Boyz is really the last of the Mohicans," Bubba Ray said. "We are the last, legitimate, great tag team that you most likely will ever see; the most old school tag team that there is. I don't think you will ever see a tag team go on to accomplish what we have accomplished, whether that's in the WWE or any place else. We really are the last of many, many generations of great tag teams."
"The great thing about us is we didn't take no for an answer," D-Von added. "We just went out there and did it when nobody thought we could. That was the biggest thing that Bubba and I had to face in our career because, back in ECW, we weren't really supposed to be an act to be reckoned with"
One of the more interesting tidbits stemming from the Dudley Boyz' entry in the Hall of Fame is that they'll be the first ECW homegrown talent to be inducted. For Bubba Ray, they feel their inclusion is a testament to ECW's enduring legacy compared to other promotions that had longer and more established runs.
"It probably means more to me than anything else," Bubba Ray said. "Yes, going into the WWE Hall of Fame is cool, but being the first original act ever created in ECW is really a big deal. ECW meant so much to us and it meant so much to wrestling fans. To me, it's a great honor to represent a company that revolutionized and changed the wrestling business."
The Dudley Boyz will join Goldberg in being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame April 6, the Friday before WrestleMania.
