Team 3D doesn't understand why WWE isn't bringing them back

The most decorated tag team in history still wants another run in the WWE.

In a good, lengthy interview with Sports Illustrated, Devon Hughes (D-Von Dudley) and Mark LoMonaco (Bubba Ray Dudley) insisted that they could revolutionize WWE's tag team division and said they can't fathom why the company hasn't brought them back yet.​

D-Von begins by speaking on the matter:

"For us not to be back there, knowing that we're in the best shape we've ever been in, I don't understand it," said Hughes. "We're better now than we were ten or fifteen years ago.

"I understand that they want the future. But without the older generation that paved the way for these young guys to come, you're not going to have it. Wrestling is a lost art, so you need the older guys like us to help show the younger guys how it's done. I don't understand it, though I know it needs to be on their terms."

And Bubba Ray, as per usual, doesn't mince words:

"Take the Dudley Boyz and put them back in WWE, and you'd add instant credibility to the tag division," said LoMonaco. "The great thing about the Dudleys is we can work with any team and we can work any style. Not only will we help one team get over and learn and get better, but we can help all of them. It seems pretty simple to me - having the Dudleys back in the WWE is best for business, so I don't have a really great answer for why we are not there. Only they know."

The whole interview is worth your time, so head on over to Sports Illustrated to check that out.
