Terrence and Terrell Hughes, sons of WWE Hall of Famer D-Von Dudley, have provided updates on their in-ring futures.
While D-Von was working as an NXT coach, the former tag team champion indicated that he was training his sons ahead of potential WWE runs.
Following D-Von’s departure in January 2023, the Hall of Famer noted that he warned his sons about ‘turmoil’ within the company.
Speaking on Straight Talk Wrestling, the brothers noted that they’ve stayed in contact with current WWE coaches.
Hoping to make the next step in 2023, Terrell and Terrence said:
Terrell: “I mean, no matter what, we always stay in contact with some of the coaches there (at WWE). I send matches to them via email.
“So we’ve had a couple tryouts, we’ve gotten feedback. Now, me and my brother are approaching the age where this is the age where Bubba and D-Von (Dudley) got into WWE.
“So now this the point in time where me and my brother are looking at, hey, where can we go? What can we do? I’m hoping, looking at 2023 as a year that we take that next step.
“But there is communication as of right now.”
Terrence: “Looking back, I look back at some of my older first matches or even four or five years in and I don’t think I would’ve been ready then and my dad always points that out so I’m glad.
“I think right now, we’re at a perfect age, a perfect spot in our career where it would be a good time now. So I mean, you never know.
“Like he said, all the coaches, we’ve known since we were four years old, five years old so we see ‘em in passing.
“My dad talks to them so that relationship with us is always there so we’re always in talks so I don’t know, we’ll see, we’ll see what happens.”
