They actually considered themselves three brothers. Three lifelong friends of professional wrestling. It all started when the cousin introduced the brothers to the world of professional wrestling, specifically the WWF. An interest which became an obsession. Three lifelong friends, brothers..Three Dudes With Attitudes. October 25th, 2003 Bottom of the ninth. Two outs. Josh Beckett is on the mound with Jorge Posada at the plate. It's game six of the World Series. The Dude Donnie, Dude Tom and Dude Harry sit in the bleachers with all of the other creatures inside the old Yankee Stadium. The fans are on their feet in anticipation of a dramatic ending. A hopeful comeback as the Yankees are down two runs to zero to the Marlins. Florida controls the series three games to two. One more victory and they become World Series champions. One more out and it seals the deal. But The Dudes are from New York. The Dudes are Yankees fans. Although the Yankees are not their true passion. That true passion is professional wrestling. But in the world of baseball, the Dudes love their Yankees. Dude Harry: I told you they would blow it in the bottom of the ninth! Dude Donnie: Shut up Harry! The Dude Donnie knocks into Harry which causes him to spill his beer onto the Dude Tom. Dude Tom: Bro come on! Donnie and Harry chuckle as Tom has a Miller Lite all down his Big Red Evil sweatshirt. Dude Tom: Not cool man. Alcohol abuse. Screw it! The Dudes cheers and chug down their frosty beers. They had been salvaging these beers since the seventh inning stretch when beer was stopped being served. Dude Donnie: We've got this. Jorge bring us to the promise land. With that being said, the bat pops from the ball striking off it. A slow dribbler down the first base line. Beckett scoops it up and tags Posada out to end the game. We can hear it now. Joe Buck in all of his stupidity. Joe Buck: And the Florida Marlins are World Series Champions! Yankees fans pour out of the stadium quickly at the conclusion of the game. Dude Harry: We staying boys? Dude Donnie: Screw that. I'm out of here. Dude Tom: Told you Beckett was awesome. Dude Donnie: Chills bro. Be chill. Dude Harry: Josie's boys? The Dudes nod in approval. Josie's is a local bar the Dudes often visit while in town. Although they are native to New York they are from upstate. A short time later the Dudes are corralled around a sticky bar with a frosty mug in hand. FOX is on showing Josh Beckett being interviewed after his World Series win. Dude Tom: He'll play for Boston in no time. Guaranteed. Dude Donnie: Dudeee... You're making me sick. Dude Harry: Why the hell are we still watching this? We just paid hundreds of dollars to sit in bleachers which hurt my ass to see the Yankees lose. Put some god damn wrestling on! Dude Donnie: Josie! The bartender directs her attention to the Dudes. Dude Donnie: Can we get Spike TV on? The channel is flipped from FOX to Spike TV. No one in the bar seems to care as they are either too drunk or too pissed off from the World Series. WWE Velocity is halfway through their show. Brian Kendrick and Paul London just beat two local jobbers. Dude Tom: I love this show! Dude Donnie: We know Dude. You tell us this every Saturday night. Dude Harry: Good main event tonight boys. The FBI taking on Kidman, Mysterio and Ultimo Dragon. Dude Tom: Really? Wait.. You read the god damn spoilers again Harry, didn't you? Harry smirks and takes a sip of his brew. Don smacks him upside the head causing him to spit his beer. Dude Donnie: Don't ruin it for us Harry. Dude Tom: SmackDown and Velocity were taped in Albany this week. Was going to get tickets but once we blew our load on coming down for the Series I figured none of us had that kind of money. Dude Harry: Would've been closer to go to Albany than to drive down to the City tonight boys. Dude Donnie: We took the train dude. Don smacks Harry upside the head again. Dude Harry: Come on dude. Harry holds the back of his head as all three are laughing. His chest still hurting from the vigorous chops he received last Saturday when the three hung out. Suddenly a commercial comes across the station grabbing their attention. The commercial is a quick twenty second clip asking for anyone who thinks they are capable of becoming a WWE intern to send in information through the mail including sample writings and ideas. Velocity comes back on with FBI coming out to the ring. Dude Donnie: Boys.. you thinking what I'm thinking? Dude Tom: It'll never happen in a million years. Dude Harry: We can write! We've been watching forever. We know the talent. We know their product. We've got fresh ideas. Dude Tom: What could we possibly offer that they would actually want to hire the three of us? Dude Donnie: Dudes... This is an opportunity of a lifetime. Dude Tom: It's just interning. Dude Harry: Don't be cynical Tom! That's Don's job. Tom and Harry chuckle as Don looks pissed. Dude Donnie: What do you say? It's either all or none. We either all submit for this or none of us. Dude Harry: I'm in dude. Simultaneously Harry and Don say, “Tommmm?!”. And he replies with a sigh. Dude Tom: Fine. Dude Donnie: Josie! Three fresh ones! The Dudes all slam their mugs down. And the rest is history. Just under a week later the Dudes were hired by WWE as interns. The Dudes decided to stick to their roots and remain in Upstate New York. They all piled in Don's apartment in Poughkeepsie, New York. A one bedroom apartment. The Dude Tom and Harry shared a bunk bed that they had purchased at K-Mart while the Dude Don enjoyed his King size bed. Of course they wanted to move but because of being too poor to relocate to affluent Stamford, Connecticut where WWE Headquarters is located they decided to take the long drive to work everyday. Within the first week Shane McMahon, Senior VP of Creative Writing, took notice of them. This lead to nights out at the bar in Connecticut. He still had time to do this as his son Declan wasn't due until February 2004. These nights out lead to their creative side being expressed to Shane. He would often listen for hours on end before calling a cab to go home. The Dudes would end up sleeping in Don's 1989 Oldsmobile. They saw their first big break when they were invited to the live Monday Night RAW on November 10, 2003 in Boston, Massachusetts. The following day they were invited to the SmackDown tapings in East Rutherford, New Jersey. At both tapings Shane asked the three to sit in on the writing team sessions. Shane then invited them to Survivor Series pay-per-view. <br> <img src="https://i.imgur.com/lhHhQwM.jpg"> WWE Survivor Series 2003 - November 16, 2003 <font color="red">Live from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas</font> <font color="green">Sponsored by Xbox</font> Official Theme: “Build A Bridge” by Limp Bizkit <font color="orange">Sunday Night HeAT Pre-Show</font> WWE Cruiserweight Title Match Tajiri © defeated Jamie Noble <font color="c92a23">Main Show</font> Five on Five | Traditional Survivor Series Match Team Angle (Bradshaw, Chris Benoit, John Cena, Hardcore Holly and Kurt Angle defeated Team Lesnar (A-Train, Big Show, Brock Lesnar, Matt Morgan and Nathan Jones) WWE Women's Championship Molly Holly © defeated Lita Ambulance Match Kane defeated Shane McMahon WWE Tag Team Championship The Basham Brothers © defeated Los Guerreros.

Which lead to another pay-per-view. <img src="https://i.imgur.com/x6fwADW.jpg"> WWE Armageddon 2003 – December 14, 2003 <font color="red">Live from the TD Waterhouse Centre in Orlando, Florida</font> <font color="407eeb">Sponsored by Final Fantasy X-2</font> Tag Line: Evolution Of The Game <font color="orange">Sunday Night HeAT Pre-Show</font> Singles Match Rico defeated Jon Heidenreich <font color="c92a23">Main Show</font> Single Match Booker T defeated Mark Henry WWE Intercontinental Championship Special Guest Referee - Mick Foley Randy Orton defeated Rob Van Dam © Battle Of The Sexes Chris Jericho and Christian defeated Lita & Trish Stratus Single Match Batista defeated Shawn Michaels WWE World Tag Team Championship Tag Team Turmoil Match Ric Flair and Batista defeated The Dudleyz © vs. Garrison Cade & Mark Jindrak vs. Val Venis & Lance Storm vs. La Resistance vs. Rosey & Hurricane vs. Scott Steiner & Test WWE Women's Championship Molly Holly © defeated Ivory WWE World Heavyweight Championship – Triple Threat Triple H defeated Kane and Goldberg © <hr> And that's when it happened. We officially met the man. The man who created it all. The man who created WrestleMania. Who changed the landscape of professional wrestling. We met the Chairman of the Board himself, Vincent Kennedy McMahon. This wasn't just any meeting. Shane McMahon set is up. After a couple of months we went from interns, to being invited to tour on the road with the guys, to being able to sit in on the writing team. We eventually were able to give input through Shane during writing team sessions. But it evolved. Ever so quickly. It evolved into Shane O' Mac introducing us to his father. We couldn't believe it. What are the chances? It was San Antonio, Texas at the SBC Center. It was late morning and we had just left the RAW writing team meeting. Vince left pissed off. A short time later Shane was advising us we were going to meet the man himself. We were scared that his anger and being pissed off would reflect on our meeting him. But it was quite the opposite. Shane McMahon: Dad.. These are the three guys I was telling you about. We could see Vince sizing us up and down. Vince McMahon: Gentlemen.. Vince McMahon. We each extended our hands out in extreme gratitude just to meet him. Vince McMahon: God damn his hands are sweaty! The Dude Harry tried wiping them on his pant legs just a second prior. Vince McMahon: Anyway, Shane speaks very highly of the three of you. He mentioned you have a great idea to capitalize on our brand split and take it to the next level. Dude Tom: We want to capitalize on the brand split of course and the success of ECW. Vince McMahon: ECW? I hate that god forsaken company. I dismantled it during the Invasion. Dude Donnie: But did you actually sir? Have you not heard the endless EC Dub chants in the crowds across the WWE shows anytime a “hardcore moment” or a former ECW performs. Dude Harry: This brand still exists. And we can capitalize by making ECW a third brand. Vince McMahon: And why the hell would I want to do that? Dude Tom: Money. Dude Donnie: Expansion. Dude Harry: DVD sales! More talent! More t-shirt sales. Shane McMahon: They've got a point pop. I've been sold on this idea since they told me back in early November. Mr. McMahon pauses. Vince McMahon: Even if I wanted to do this ECW idea. Where would we even start? Dude Tom: It's simple. We start out on next week's RAW with Paul Heyman immediately coming out. He snatches the microphone from Lilian and says he has an announcement. This is when... Dude Donnie: ...Eric Bichoff comes out and is pissed Heyman is using up his airtime. He tells Heyman to back to Thursday nights with that crap. That's when Heyman announces he is through with being the General Manager of SmackDown... Dude Harry: ...And he announces he is the new General Manager of WWE's third brand. The ECW brand. Vince McMahon: ECW? As a separate brand? Continue. Dude Harry: From there Heyman announces that he used his status as General Manager to change Saturday Night Velocity time slot on Spike TV into ECW's show. And that he has let various SmackDown contracts expire to come join the new ECW. Vince McMahon: And we can have one night only on Monday Night open season on RAW superstar contracts. Any men that wants to join Heyman's new ECW can! Mr. McMahon smirks and another pause. He stares at Shane. Vince McMahon: These are the three that wrote your storyline with you and Kane? Shane nods. Vince McMahon: And helped write in Evolution and my storyline with Undertaker? Shane McMahon: That they are. Vince McMahon: I like the idea. No I LOVE THE IDEA! And by god we are going to do it. Write me up Monday Night RAW's segment and get it back to me by the end of the night. You're hired. Separate them Shane. I want them each on a show. I can see they each and their own indivdual minds have ideas. Put them each on a brand and let's move towards WrestleMania. The three are excited and exclaim thank you's to Mr. McMahon. Vince McMahon: Shane, get me Shawn and Steve. We've got to work on tonight's ending segment. Boys good luck. Don't disappoint me. You have a lot of work to do. Mr. McMahon walks off. Shane McMahon: Don.. I'm putting you on RAW working with Triple H and Steph. Tom.. you'll be working with Bruce Prichard and Michael Hayes and I on SmackDown. And Harry you'll be working with Paul Heyman and his team on ECW. Paul is already aware of what's going on. He felt he should take a step back on this so it actually went through. He and my father don't always see eye to eye. December 31, 2003 <font color="5540eb">Stamford, Connecticut - WWE Headquarters</font> The 3 Dudes are at the WWE Headquarters for their first official meeting with their respective writing crews for RAW, Smackdown, and ECW. Vince McMahon, Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and Shane McMahon are the first people that walk through the doors, 30 minutes earlier than the meeting which was set for at 9AM. A few moments later Bruce Pritchard, and Michael Hayes come strolling through the door. 9AM comes and goes with all of the above mentioned names excluding The Dudes are located inside the Office of Vince McMahon. The clock reads 9:15AM, when suddenly the Office door opens and Bruce Pritchard waves The 3 Dudes in. Bruce Pritchard: Come on in boys. Per usual it seems as if Paul Heyman will be late for the meeting. The 3 Dudes enter the Office and take a seat around a large oak table in Vince McMahons Office. Vince McMahon: God dammit!!! I told that fat bastard 9AM... and I meant 9 AM!! Harry is it? What kind of name is that? Bruce, Michael, Shane, Paul, dammit those are good names. Harry? For Christ sakes. Bruce I need some damn protein, I had a heavy workout this morning and need my protein. Bruce exits the office and tells one of the interns to grab a steak sandwich with ketchup for Vince McMahon now. Bruce Prichard: All set Mr McMahon. Anything else or should we just get started? Triple H: Screw him, he doesn’t want to be on time. Not our fault he isn’t in the conversation. Besides it’s not his control right now anyways. Vince McMahon: That’s right. I have invited you all here because... Suddenly the door flies open and a disheveled Paul Heyman comes walking through the door. Paul Heyman: Sorry, Vince. The traffic to get here from the city was brutal. I know you said 9, but I made it. Plus I just got off the phone with someone you may want to hear from sooner rather than later. Let’s talk business! Shance McMahon then takes over the meeting after Vince begins to look like he is losing interest and growing frustrated. Shane McMahon: Well everyone, I have invited you all here to introduce you to the three men that came up with an idea that could rejuvenate our product. As you may know we have been starting to level off with our numbers, and we need something to jump start our revenue. And these three guys will now be working with us. Going around the table, that is Donnie, he will be working with you, Paul and Steph, on the RAW end. Right there is Tom, who will be working with, Bruce and Michael, on the Smackdown end. And Paul, you will be reviving, ECW, no thanks in part to these three guys, and you will be working with that guy over there, Harry. Now everyone get acquainted and let’s start the Road to WrestleMania process today! Vince McMahon: Paul and Steph, you know my baby is RAW. Make sure you teach that Donnie kid the ropes of the way. Bruce and Michael make sure you show Tom how to structure that show like only you guys know how to. And Paul. Well good luck guys. Make me some damn money. And keep it light with the blood please. And with that the room starts to separate as all three separate brands start meeting and each other respectively. Before they all take off Triple H pulls Dude Donnie to the side. Triple H: if your going to write this show, you are going to realize who your franchise player is. And you’re looking at him. Just remember that pal. Now let’s get to work. Oh and tomorrow morning, 6AM, you will be at the gym with Vince and I. Let’s go. With that The Dudes all seperate and the journey has now officially begun.
