So i got to thinking (a dangerous past time lol) and during the Dudleys match tonite I really couldn't see how people preferred Buuba over D-von......I know we had a simular threed already about which Dudley is better. But When it came down to the Dudley split only one Dudley changed. DeVon took on a whole new gimmick, and I personally think that he did very well with what he had to work with. He was a heel and he did draw heat as Rev. D-Von. While on Raw which is the major show for WWE, Bubba Ray Dudley took the gimmick of Bubba Ray Dudley. I was wondering if the roles were flipped would Bubba be able to be so versitile. Devon has always more or less been the voice of the group ever since coming to WWE, and his mic skills were good as hell when he was the Reverend. Bubba's were sub-par....Devon is a mobile wrestler who is able to do what Bubba does and then on top of that go to the top rope, and bring intense energy in the ring.....Just wandering if Bubba had to be something else would he make it........

Remember during Bubba Ray's singles run when he had that mini-feud with HHH. I thought if this was the 1980s, the man could have main evented, he kinda reminded me of Dusty Rhodes. I think he could make it, but just be a mid carder.

Neither of them can really get over without the other. It's that whole tables thing, and since Bubba is the one that puts them through it, he's the one that the fans seem to want to see more. I think they're both tired, but splitting them is about as bad as firing them. I don't know what you do with them anymore, but the Bubba gimmick can't really stand on it's own. I guess D-von might do ok again, he'd be midcard for life, but he got over at least a little bit with the Rev gimmick. I don't know, I don't even really care anymore.

Well being that I watched ECW years before they got on tnn and had ppvs before then, I had seen both men wrestle for months on end in singles and didn't think either one had the charisma to get over alone. The only reason the rev. dvon deal worked was he had batista then farooq with him, again he needed someone with him to make it work.

Outside of the hardcore division, bubba can't pull off singles matches that well imo.

Bubba has one option for his career, and that is Bubba.....he was actually a lot better as "stuttering" Bubba.....i enjoy watching the Dudley's at times, but DVon is the better of the two by himself by far.....

Bubba is out of the Nasty Boys, PE image.....DVon could cut it as a singles guy just because he is really powerful, he works the mic a little better, and i could see him becoming a Booker T type if they were to split.....

Bubba could make it on his own, but I think he'll need DVon in the longrun. As far as DVon goes he could make it solo too. He is great on the mic and is a great wrestler, so I think it would be ok for both of them if they would splitup

Neither of them could make it ALONE in the WWE they need to get the tables. SO either Bubbas not smart enough to get a table or D'Vons not smart enough to think of it himself.

Peace My Dudes.

bubba can take nasty bumps and has a few good power moves, but he looks too silly to be a main event face. as a heel i think thered be more chance for him.
