Career History and Evolution

D-Von Dudley started his professional wrestling career in 1995, joining the Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) promotion. Here, he paired with Bubba Ray Dudley, and the two formed the Dudley Boyz.
The Dudley Boyz moved to the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) in 1999, where they became key players in the iconic tag team division of the late ’90s and early 2000s. They later performed in Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling and made a return to WWE in 2015 before retiring.
Throughout his career, D-Von occasionally wrestled as a singles competitor but primarily achieved success in the tag team division.

Titles Won and Biggest Matches

D-Von Dudley is a multi-time tag team champion, having held the WWF/WWE Tag Team Championships, WCW Tag Team Championships, ECW Tag Team Championships, and TNA Tag Team Championships.
Some of his biggest matches include the triangle ladder match at WrestleMania 2000 and the TLC matches at SummerSlam 2000 and WrestleMania X-Seven, against the Hardy Boyz and Edge & Christian.

Biggest Rivalries and Tag Team Partners

D-Von’s most significant rivalries were with other tag teams, including the Hardy Boyz, Edge & Christian, and The New Age Outlaws. He also had memorable rivalries in TNA with teams like Beer Money and The Motor City Machine Guns.
Though he’s had other tag team partners, D-Von’s primary and most successful partnership was with Bubba Ray Dudley.

Family Life

D-Von is a devoted family man, married with several children. His twin sons, Terrence and Terrell Hughes, are also professional wrestlers, known as TNT.

Finishing Move, Clothing, and Entrance Music

D-Von’s finishing move, when teaming with Bubba Ray, is the “3D – Dudley Death Drop,” a flapjack/cutter combination.
His ring attire typically consisted of camo pants and taped glasses, contributing to the Dudley Boyz’s recognizable look.
The Dudley Boyz used “We’re Comin’ Down” by Pete Blast as their entrance music in the WWE.


D-Von Dudley, along with Bubba Ray, left a lasting legacy in professional wrestling as one of the greatest tag teams of all time. Known for their hardcore style and innovative table spots, the Dudley Boyz were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2018. After retiring, D-Von remained with WWE as a producer, continuing to influence the business.
