Former TNA World Champion and WWE star Bully Ray, also known as Bubba Ray Dudley debuted for ROH at Manhattan Mayhem this weekend.
Fightful.com has confirmed a PWInsider report that Ray had been negotiating with Ring of Honor for several weeks. The deal wasn't a one-off as many suspected, and he'll be with the company moving forward.
Bully Ray has been without a home since leaving WWE last year, while longtime tag team partner D-Von Dudley remained with WWE behind the scenes.
Joe Koff told me in an interview last week that ROH would be a player in free agency. Fightful.com will run that exclusive interview later this week. A reminder, Fightful Wrestling will have full, live coverage of ROH 15th Anniversary this Friday night.
