Was The Bully Ray/House Of Hardcore Drama A Work?

Partial Source: Pwinsider.com

UPDATE: According to sources, the announcement of Bully Ray being pulled from House of Hardocre was not an angle. Tommy Dreamer was reportedly told that Ray had been pulled from the weekend shows at the last minute. Ray working the shows was part of a deal where Dreamer’s House of Hardcore helped TNA fill the house when they ran a One Night Only taping in Poughkeepsie.

Dreamer was said to have been pissed off with having to change the advertised main event at the last minute. This led to Dreamer cutting a promo on Friday about Dixie Carter, saying it was not part of the show and calling Dixie Carter a “b*tch” among other things. He told all the fans to tweet her as she was a “Twitter mark.” Bully Ray followed up with similar tweets.

As of now, Dreamer is still said to be working for TNA as an agent. Ray working in House of Hardcore was something Ray, not TNA, offered, but TNA did approve it well in advance.

ORIGINAL: Bully Ray was pulled from Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore event last night. During the opening segment, Dreamer told the fans around 11:30 that he was told by TNA that Bully had to attend a SpikeTV event instead. Dreamer was followed by Abyss and Devon to the ring.

At first, Dreamer talked about a nationally syndicated TV show that would film tonight, but he couldn’t reveal what it was due to legal reasons. He added that the audience would know when it’s happen and can react then. That’s when he revealed the news about Bully, claiming he is always “100% honest with the fans” and said Bully was pulled by Dixie Carter. He said Carter is a “mark for Twitter” and told fans to tweet her and let her know how they felt about Bully’s absence. He promised revenge on Dixie and said he’s tired of people like her abusing him and the fans. He added: “B***h, I will get you for this.” He also reportedly called Dixie a “C*nt”.

It then turned into an angle (if it wasn’t already) as Abyss attacked Dreamer and Devon. He said Dixie kept him employed over the years and he defended TNA. Rhino came out but then turned on Dreamer, leading to Dreamer and Devon vs. Abyss and Rhino in the main event.

Bully Ray also commented on the situation on his Twitter:

We’ll keep you posted as we hear more. There is another House of Hardcore event scheduled for tonight in Philadelphia, PA so we’ll see what happens there.

REPORT: Bully Ray Legitimately *QUITS* TNA Wrestling – HE’S EXTREMELY PISSED OFF!!!
