Bully Ray appeared on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio to discuss a variety of topics. The most noteworthy news to come out of the interview was his thoughts on why A.J. Styles v Daniel Bryan was happening at Crown Jewel:
Remember when Rusev was supposed to wrestle The Undertaker [at Greatest Royal Rumble] and then Rusev got taken out of the match? Then it was going to be Jericho vs. Undertaker, and then Rusev was back in the match. You know why that happened? Because the Prince wanted Rusev in the match.
He was adamant, he was a Rusev fan. He said, ‘no I want Rusev vs. Undertaker.’ So, maybe he wants AJ vs. Daniel Bryan. When you’re dealing with a bought show in wrestling, you’re purchasing the show.
Hypothetically, [the Prince] said ‘This is the match I want’ and Vince is going to accommodate him because it’s an ungodly amount of money,” stated Bully Ray. “So you give them the show that they want to see, you wrap it around a network special and you turn it into something. And that’s what it really is.
