During an appearance on “The Cut Pro Wrestling Podcast”, D-Von revealed that the two men had parted ways in 2016 after Bully Ray delayed signing a WWE contract extension, which eventually led to the deal being taken off the table. He said,
“I wish him nothing but the best. We do not do business anymore. There’s no hard feelings and I don’t have any animosity towards him. It’s just he’s doing his thing and I’m doing my thing. Bubba and I are not at odds with each other. We don’t hate one another. We just went different ways like most tag teams do. This is not a Marty Jannetty and Shawn Michaels thing where we hate each other. We don’t. We just had a difference of opinions at that time and we went our separate ways. Even the wrestling school, he has the wrestling school in Connecticut, I have the one in Winter Park over here. So we both individually own our wrestling schools but we just do things separate now. That’s all.”
As many of you know, D-Von currently works as a backstage producer in WWE.
Bully Ray’s fiancée, Velvet Sky, took to Twitter today and clearly wasn’t a fan of D-Von’s comments and disputed that he was telling the truth. In a now-deleted tweet, she said,
“Fiction can be fun…. lol if ya’ll only knew the truth. Cuz this ain’t it.”
