D-Von Dudley initially hated his ‘Whassup?’ headbutt spot.
Speaking to Chris Van Vliet for his “Insight” podcast, the Dudley Boyz member revealed that Vince McMahon insisted on doing the spot after Bubba Ray originally convinced him to do it, and Vince eventually overruled him despite his hatred for it. D-Von said,
“He [Vince] goes, ‘Tell me something, D-Von. What’s this thing where you go up to the top rope, and someone told me you guys call it the ‘Whassup?”’ I was like, ‘Oh, that thing. Vince, it’s the dumbest thing in the world. I hate it, I don’t like it. I’m not doing it…’”
He continued, “He goes ‘Oh no, you are going to do the ‘Whassup.’ Cause I actually like it.’ I was like, ‘That’s what I mean…I’m going to do it exactly as you said it. I’m going to go up there, ‘Whassup!” And from that point on, a vision was made.”
