When the legendary Scott Hall came back into the WWE and reunited with NWO, he pulled a rib on The Dudley Boyz. Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT today shared an excerpt from Chris Jericho’s second book Undisputed.

Chris Jericho mentioned that Scott Hall appeared backstage with fake smiles and hellos, but he knew that Hall was not showing his genuine character.

Jericho was eagerly waiting for Razor Ramon to emerge into his true self. Jericho wrote, “It didn’t take long for Jaws to attack as five minutes later he shook Bubba Ray Dudley’s hand and murmured in his deep voice, ‘I love the 3D.'”

The two-time WWE Hall of Famer words sounded like gold for The Dudley Boyz at first sight. However, the brothers did not see what was coming on their way as Hall then said, “What a great finishing move… can’t wait to kick out of it.”
