WWE Hall Of Famer Says Newly Debuting Stars Are ‘Like My Sons’

WWE Hall Of Famer Says Newly Debuting Stars Are ‘Like My Sons’ WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray of The Dudley Boys says newly debuting stars Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa are “like my sons.”

At WWE Backlash 2024, The Bloodline’s Solo Sikoa and Tama Tonga defeated Kevin Owens and Randy Orton in a Street Fight thanks to the debuting Tanga Loa.

Loa, Tama Tonga’s brother, was a member of the NJPW roster until January 2024. He was a former seven-time IWGP Tag Team Champion and member of the Bullet Club stable.

Tonga and Loa, better known as the Guerrillas of Destiny in NJPW, were trained by WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray during the early part of their careers.

On the latest episode of Busted Open Radio, Bully Ray discussed his relationship with the Guerrillas of Destiny and the potential he sees in the duo. Recalling a conversation with Haku, Bully said:

“These [Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa] are like my … between Jessika Carr [WWE referee], Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa, these are like my kids.”

“I’ll never forget the day when Haku came in to me and D-Von’s wrestling school and he said, ‘Guys, will you please train my sons?'”

“That’s Haku! It’s a big deal to have a veteran like that of our industry [trust you],” 

“Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa, like I said, Haku brought them to me and D-Von, he trusted us to train them, we trusted Haku, we gave him the keys to our wrestling school because Haku wanted to come in on Sundays and work just with his sons on his own.”

Tama Tonga debuted for WWE on the SmackDown following WrestleMania 40 where he aligned with Solo Sikoa and Paul Heyman in The Bloodline.
