Bully Ray And Tommy Dreamer Discuss The Working Relationship Between WWE And TNA

WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray (Bubba Ray Dudley) and ECW original Tommy Dreamer recently appeared on an episode of Busted Open Radio, where they talked about a number of topics including the working relationship between WWE and TNA Wrestling.

Ray said, “60-40 in ‘NXT’s favor.” “And I think that’s good for TNA. Because it’s ‘NXT,’ the bigger company, allowing TNA, the smaller company, to play in their sandbox. And if you can play in their sandbox, and you’re getting 40% of the shine, I think that’s really good. Because it would be very easy for TNA to come into ‘NXT’ territory and ‘NXT’ basically say, ‘Hey, this is the way we’re doing it whether you like it or not.’ … but I think ‘NXT,’ I think Triple H, the powers-that-be, are being very gracious.”

Dreamer added, “These are different ways of taking care of your talent. Because you’re not gonna say, ‘Hey, we lost the Super Bowl’ … when they review the losers, what do they do? ‘Man, when we landed, we had 40,000 people at the airport celebrating us, celebrating what a game we had….I pay no attention to that stuff … but I know networks do.”
