Alex Rizzo, known to wrestling fans as Big Dick Dudley, will best be remembered for his run with ECW throughout the 90s. Big Dick was the original Dudley, which eventually transitioned into a faction.

D-Von and Bubby Ray may be the most well known Dudley’s after successfully moving over and enjoying long careers with the WWE; but Big Dick will always remain the original Dudley.
