D-Von Dudley (far right) with the Dudley Family

Devon Hughes (born on August 1, 1972 in New York) is an American professional wrestler, best known for his appearances with Extreme Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Entertainment as D-Von Dudley. He is currently under contract to TNA Wrestling under the new stage name of Brother Devon.

Hughes is one half of one of the most successful tag teams in wrestling history, Team 3D (formerly known as the Dudley Boyz), along with his storyline half-brother Brother Ray (formerly known as Bubba Ray Dudley).


Hughes started wrestling in 1992 in the East Coast independents as A-Train, feuding with the Latin Lover in most promotions.

He eventually ended up in ECW where he formed the most successful tag team ever in ECW with his "half brother" Bubba Ray Dudley. They won the Tag Titles on 8 occasions. They were known for inciting riots with their remarks toward the fans during interviews.

Upon arriving in the WWF in 1999, they feuded with The Hardy Boyz and Edge & Christian. They were part of The Alliance that tried to take over the WWF in 2001. Bubba and D-Von continued to wrestle in the WWE after The Invasion storyline ended, winning tag team gold on many occasions. When RAW and SmackDown! became seperate brands in 2002, D-Von was sent to SmackDown! while Bubba stayed on RAW following the Brand Extension. During his time there, he developed the character Reverend D-Von who was later managed by newcomer Deacon Batista. After several months on SmackDown!, he was reunited with Bubba at Survivor Series where they reformed their partnership and D-Von went back to RAW as a result. In the 2004 Draft Lottery, the Dudleys were traded to SmackDown! along with Booker T to keep Triple H on RAW after he was drafted to SmackDown! They won the WWE Tag Team Championship during this time. After being on hiatus for several months, the Dudleys returned to WWE to promote and perform at ECW One Night Stand.

On July 5, 2005 the WWE opted not to continue contract renewal negotiations with Hughes, as well as his partner Lamonica. In addition, fifteen other wrestlers were released by the WWE, which was decreasing its spending as a result of a fall in projected revenue. Later, WWE would go on to stop Hughes, Mark Lamonica (Bubba), and Matt Hyson (Spike) from using any aspect of the Dudley gimmick in any other promotion, claiming ownership of all Dudley Boyz trademarks dating back to 2003 despite the fact the gimmick predated their run in WWE.

On September 21, 2005, it was announced that Lamonica and Hughes had been signed to multi-year contracts by Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. The pair debuted on Spike TV on October 1 under the new name of Team 3D. Lamonica is now known as Brother Ray, while Hughes is known as Brother Devon. The name Deadly Death Drop was also copyrighted which is believed to be the new name for the Dudley Death Drop (3D).
