Today’s news:

It was wrestle mania when the Dudley Boyz visited MCU Park

The Dudley Boyz threw down at MCU Park last week, but instead of tossing feeble opponents over the ropes, they tossed out the first pitch.

The vaunted pro wrestling tag team, noted for their brawling style, visited the Cyclones home field last Thursday to promote their “TNA Live!” event the next night.

It was a bit of a homecoming for both Bubba Ray Dudley, who grew up in Queens, and his on-stage “brother” D-Von, who lives nearby in Coney Island.

“When I was a little kid, I’d come [to Coney Island] and act it out like I was Hulk Hogan; now I’m here as the main attraction,” D-Von said. “To me, this is as big as performing at Madison Square Garden!”

Both Bubba Ray — who says he played some serious first base in grade school — and D-Von had trouble finding the plate with their pitch attempts, but they at least had enough muscle to reach the catcher’s glove.
