Bully Ray Talks AEW On Busted Open Radio

Bully Ray On AEW Being The Facebook Of Pro Wrestling, Having “Coolness” Factor

During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio on Sirius XM, WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray (Bubba Ray Dudley) gave his thoughts on the new upstart All Elite Wrestling promotion having a “coolness” factor and talks about why he feels it is like the Facebook of pro wrestling. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On AEW having a “coolness” factor: “The guys are doing something different. They’re doing something cool. They’re doing something special. I’m gonna put a lot of emphasis on the word, ‘cool.’ Cody, The Bucks, [Chris] Jericho], and Kenny [Omega]—everybody there associated there has a coolness factor attached to them. I always said that ECW was the ‘Napster’ of pro wrestling business. I believe that AEW is the ‘Facebook’ of the pro wrestling business, right now.”

On AEW being the Facebook of pro wrestling: “When Facebook first was invented, one of the guys within Facebook wanted to do advertising on Facebook, and they decided not to because—they don’t even know what they had with Facebook, yet, they just knew have something cool. I don’t know if AEW even knows what they have yet. It’s just cool. You can tell how cool it is by how quickly All In sold out. You can tell how cool it is by how great of an event All In was. You can tell how cool it is when people show up to a ticket release party. You can tell how cool it is when they sell out 14,000 seats in four minutes. To me, that’s cool.”
