WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray has been part of the pro wrestling industry for decades now. Being a true veteran, Bully Ray is well aware of pro wrestling’s method of putting over younger talent. That being said, Bully Ray doesn’t exactly subscribe to the passing of the torch moments in pro wrestling.
The former multi-time tag team champion has spent numerous years in various pro wrestling companies. This includes ECW, where he and D-Von Dudley became one of the highlights of the company.
After debuting in WWE, The Dudleyz ended up competing against The Hardy Boyz and Edge & Chrisitan in the all-time classic TLC matches. Bully Ray eventually made his way to Impact Wrestling and became a huge star there, especially breaking away from tag team action and becoming the Impact World Champion.
While speaking to Darren Paltrowitz on the Paltrocast this week, Bully Ray talked about the current Impact Wrestling locker room. Ray made it clear that he has no intention of passing down the torch and will instead take the torch for himself.
“The locker room is what impresses me the most. Very, very aggressive, hard-working locker room of men and women who are going out there and really trying to carve out their spot, find the spotlight, get themselves over, earn themselves opportunities at gold, earn themselves opportunities at more lucrative contracts. I’m not here to pass down a torch. I’m here to grab Josh Alexander’s gold. I’m not a fan of that whole passing down the torch. If you can take the torch, then take the torch. But if you can’t, f*ck you.”
At Impact Hard to Kill, Bully Ray will challenge Josh Alexander for the Impact World Championship on January 13th. We will have to wait and see whether Bully Ray will be able to win the title.
