Bully Ray returns to drop some 411 on the Ring of Honor/New Japan G1 Supercard event taking place tomorrow (Saturday 4/6) at New York’s Madison Square Garden. How the heck did that happen (in the house that the McMahons built)? Bully’s got that story, along with the reason why he signed with ROH, what his last days were like at Impact, and why things didn’t work out for him and D-Von at WWE. He’s also speaking to the evolution of the Bully Ray character, and giving a full behind-the-scenes, deep-dive look at the Dudley Boyz induction into the WWE Hall of Fame last year!
