TNA star teases WWE return with new corporate role in Triple H’s creative team

Despite the recent controversies surrounding the WWE, the company continues to captivate fans with its inventive storylines. One of the main reasons is the presence of highly experienced and creative individuals who work behind the scenes. The WWE creative is also responsible for creating and developing the stories, characters, and matches for the WWE.

It is unusual for WWE to publicly advertise job openings, as they typically prioritize former WWE wrestlers and Hall of Famers for such roles. However, there has been a recent announcement of a job posting for a position within the WWE creative team and a TNA superstar has disclosed that he has submitted an application for this opportunity.

Bully Ray applies for WWE corporate job

WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray, also known as Bubba Ray Dudley, has recently revealed that he has applied for a vacant position in the WWE creative team. Ray is a former eight-time WWE Tag Team Champion and is currently signed with TNA as an in-ring performer.

The job listing for the position of writer/producer was posted on the official WWE Careers website and stated that the role requires an understanding of World Wrestling Entertainment and that the position is based out of the company headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut.

The job listing went viral on social media, with many fans and wrestling personalities commenting on it. Ray tweeted that he had applied for the job, adding a fingers crossed and a smiling face emoji.

Ray is also the co-host of a famous podcast, Busted Open Radio, known for his outspoken opinions and critiques of the WWE product, where he analyzes the booking decisions and the creative direction of the company.

He has also expressed his interest in working behind the scenes in wrestling and has praised the work of Paul Heyman, the former boss of ECW, who is currently the on-screen advocate of Roman Reigns.

When did Bully Ray last appear on WWE?

Bully Ray is no stranger to the WWE, having worked for the company from 1999 to 2005 as part of the legendary tag team The Dudley Boyz, along with his partner D-Von Dudley.

They moved to WWE in 1999 as Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley and continued their dominance in the tag team division. They won the WWE Tag Team Championship once and the WCW World Tag Team Championship once, and they also held the WWE Hardcore Championship 10 times between them.

Their last appearance in WWE was on August 24, 2015, where they made a surprise appearance on a RAW episode after leaving WWE in 2005. They competed for the WWE Tag Team Championship against The New Day but failed to win it. Both left WWE again and joined ROH as Bully Ray and D-Von Dudley and they were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2018.

Ray also had a successful solo career in TNA, where he became a two-time world champion and a leader of the Aces & Eights faction. Ray’s application for the WWE creative team is certainly an intriguing and surprising move, and it remains to be seen if he will get the job and what impact he will have on the WWE product.
