According to sources, very few people knew that Bubba Ray Dudley/Bully Ray and The Hardy Boys would be appearing at Saturday night’s ROH “Manhattan Mayhem” event from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. According to reports, Joe Koff (COO), Delirious (Head Of Creative), Greg Gilliand (Creative) and possibly The Young Bucks were the only exceptions. ROH staff members were told to be ready for autograph sessions at the intermission and after the event but were not told who would be appearing.
It should also be noted that ROH kept Bubba Ray and The Hardy Boys in a secret area prior to their appearances so nobody would find out they were there.
