WWE Superstars have a tough job that involves a lot of travel. Some of those stars keep themselves occupied by imbibing in some medicinal marijuana. It wasn’t always legal, but that didn’t stop Spike Dudley from enjoying his weed.
While chatting with Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw, Bully Ray recalled catching Spike Dudley in the act of smoking up in the bathroom. He then realized that marijuana gave Spike his secret ability to take so much punishment in the ring.
“I was looking for him and I couldn’t find him. I walked into the men’s room and I see his little boots in one of the stalls, he used to spray paint them with polka dots, and I was like, ‘Spike, you in here?’ All I heard was, ‘[Coughs repeatedly]’ and this big cloud of smoke came out of the stall. I was like, ‘Oh, that’s how you’re able to do it every night.'”
Bully Ray then re-told a classic story about traveling with Shane McMahon. Apparently, Vince McMahon’s son thought it was a good idea to call up his dad at 3 in the morning. This was a decision that Spike Dudley thought was a joke, but he soon learned the hard way that Vince McMahon was really on the phone.
“Me, Shane, [Tommy] Dreamer, and Spike – This is when Shane was on the road with us. We’re probably driving at three in the morning, have no business being on the road but we were. Shane looks over at me and he goes, ‘Come on, let’s call Pop.’ I’m like, ‘Horrible idea. Do not.’ He’s like, ‘No, no, come on, let’s call him.’ I’m like, ‘He’s probably sleeping. He’s like, ‘He never sleeps.'”
“Before I could say anything else, he’s dialling the phone, and he’s like, ‘Pop, yeah, yeah, no, no, Bubba wants to talk to you,’ and he hands me the phone. [I nervously say] ‘Vince.’ He’s like, ‘Why are you corrupting my son, Bubba?’ I was like, ‘You know it’s the other way around.’ [Vince replies] ‘Ha ha ha. Don’t do anything stupid, and make sure you get home safe.'”
“I hand it back to Shane and Shane goes, ‘Hey Spike, you want to say hello to Vince?’ Spike doesn’t think Vince is on the phone. Spike takes the phone, he goes, ‘Hey, Vinny, you got any good pot?’ [After hearing Vince reply] Spike threw the phone at the windshield. Shane’s phone exploded. Spike was terrified. The next day of TV, he did everything he possibly could to avoid Vince.”
Shane McMahon’s phone really took the punishment that night as it shattered into pieces after it hit the windshield. You can check out the video from WWE Story Time below where they animated this tale for all to see.
