The surprises keep coming at the Ring of Honor Manhattan Mayhem event tonight. Site reader Jonathan hit me with another email to pass along the following:
At the end of the show, Bubba Ray Dudley appeared. He ran out for the save when Bobby Fish was attacked by Bullet Club following the main event. Bubba cut a promo where said he was considering offers this week. He responded to the fans chanting “fuck TNA” with “that’s why I didn’t take their offer.” Bubba said ROH reminds him of a promotion that is special to him and the fans, and that drew ECW chants.
Bubba said if he came to ROH, it wouldn’t be because he wanted to be a tag team or world champion, or to be a veteran who steals from the company. “If I come to ROH, it’s because I genuinely want to. When I retire, I want to be able to say that I fought in Ring of Honor.” He asked the fans if they thought it was a good idea.
Bubba called for Joe Koff (ROH executive) and he didn’t come out. He wanted to ask him one question. “Do you know who I am?” He said his name, and said that as of now he is in Ring of Honor.
Bill Says: This was a hell of a night of surprises for the fans in attendance. If you were there, I’d love to hear from you – firstname.lastname@example.org. I wonder what else ROH has up their sleeve for the 15th Anniversary show.
