They’re back. Retirement is a weird thing in wrestling as you never know when you are going to see wrestlers officially hang up their boots and wrap up their careers. It makes for an interesting situation as you might see a wrestler make a comeback later on, which can offer quite the special moment. That was the case again recently, as one of the biggest teams ever returned to the ring.

The Dudley Boyz returned to the ring over the weekend, teaming with Elijah (formerly known as Elias) to defeat Cannon Kristopher/Derek Dillinger/Wes Barkley in an Extreme Rules tables match at at IWC Superstar Showdown V. This was the team’s second match of the month, as they had previously reunited over WrestleMania Weekend at an independent event. This is only the team’s third match together since retiring as a full time team in 2016.

They’ve still got it. Check out some of the match, plus the team in their full time together:

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that you do not get to see very often but it still makes for a fun moment. The Dudley Boyz are one of the most popular and successful tag teams in history and getting to see them reunite, even for a one off match like this, is a special treat. While I’m not sure I can imagine them having one last run, just getting to see them do this kind of a thing was a nice surprise.

What did you think of the reunion? What is the best span of their career? Let us know in the comments below.
