Bo Dallas was always tipped to replicate his success on the main roster. However, it was Bray who made it big in WWE. It’s been a while since we saw Bo Dallas on TV, and there continues to be a lot of speculation about the 30-year-old Superstar’s whereabouts. For years, why hasn’t WWE thought about pairing up the real-life brothers on TV. Well, the idea was pitched years ago by Arn Anderson. While reviewing the Fastlane 2016 PPV, Arn Anderson revealed a pitched storyline featuring Bo Dallas.
Arn Anderson said that Bo Dallas’ failure on the main roster came down to the Bolieve gimmick that was handed to him. Anderson had a better idea that involved adding Bo Dallas to The Wyatt Family as Bray Wyatt’s babyface brother.
Anderson gave a scenario wherein Bo& Bray’s father, would come out during one of the Wyatt matches. The plan would have been for Erick Rowan and Luke Harper to attack Mike Rotunda. But instead of joining in, Bray Wyatt would stop Harper and Rowan. It would then be revealed that Wyatt was indeed Rotunda’s son before Bo Dallas was introduced into the fold.
“Let’s just say, and at that time, I pitched a deal where you brought him in with the Wyatts, and you told him who he was.’ Now you’ve found out that he is the son of Mike Rotunda because I don’t think that it was 100 percent everybody knew that.”
It would have given him a better launching pad
Arn Anderson felt that having a babyface Bo Dallas in a group filled with giant monsters would have opened up different avenues. It would have been a more stable launchpad for Bo Dallas’ WWE career.
Bo Dallas still has age on his side but could a WWE return after a potential repackage salvage his WWE career?
