Update: The Dudley Boyz Set For WWE SmackDown


The Dudley Boys’ return on RAW was not a one-shot deal. WWE announced during the show that the returning team will have their first match back in WWE on Thursday’s episode of SmackDown. The episode tapes tomorrow night from Providence, Rhode Island.

The team also appeared in a Fallout video and some photos on social media, in which they say they’re “back”:

ORIGINAL: WWE pulled a surprise out of their hat that rocked the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York during the post-SummerSlam edition of RAW on Monday night.

After a tag-team match between The New Day and The Lucha Dragons, out of nowhere, The Dudley Boyz’ music hit and out came Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley.

After taking out The New Day with tables and a 3-D, The Dudley Boyz squared off with The Prime Time Players, who were on commentary during the match. The announce team noted that the tag-team division just got a lot more exciting, indicating that The Dudley Boyz aren’t back for a single-shot like when Bubba Ray Dudley returned as a surprise in the Royal Rumble match.

The Dudley Boyz’ WWE return looks to be full-time as the announcers later reference that they “were back” to compete in the WWE tag-team division.

Bubba Ray Dudley also tweeted the following:
