Former NXT champion Bo Dallas recently talked to ChicagoNow.com’s MMA Undisputed where he revealed the secret behind his success. Here are some highlights;
Your brother Bray Wyatt is also in the WWE right now and both of you started your careers in the NXT. How much of that bonding experience helped get you to the main WWE roster?
We both came into this with the same mindset, that we are going to be our identities. We wanted our success to be for ourselves. As much as we respect and love our father, grandfather and uncles, we didn’t want to become molds of them. We wanted this path to be our own. So far I think we accomplished that.
I don’t think you look at myself or my brother and say, “Oh, that’s the sons of former wrestler IRS”. To have the family on the road with you it’s great to have somebody bounce ideas off of and help you critique you. You can trust those people and you can’t buy that relationship; it’s a beautiful thing.
Currently your father is a road agent for the WWE. How much involvement does your Dad have with helping you progress your wrestling career?
He has helped tremendously. My Dad has seen so much wrestling through his years, he knows more than my brother and I combined. It’s always great to have a base with him and the critiques he gives me I take them to heart and apply them immediately.
The gimmick bolieve has been going on for a few months now and everyday more and more fans are responding. How do you take the more boos than cheers when you come out to a WWE crowd and preach bolieve?
I take every situation as a positive. Bolieving is definitely a positive. If you are having a rough day, sitting in traffic, late to work you have to take a step back and realize this day could be better. All you have to do is bolieve. It’s something that I take to heart and every time I’m out in the public, I get nothing but positive reactions.
Bolieve is something that is great to use and think about because it will make somebody’s day better.
Your brother has the dark side of your two gimmicks down, while you have the cocky, chip on the shoulder persona. Have you ever thought about changing your role into more of a dark person character?
HA! Right now I think Bray is doing that quite well and I have my own agenda. But you never know maybe one day down the road maybe Bo Dallas will cross paths with Bray Wyatt. Maybe our differences will come to a head in the future. With the WWE you just don’t know.
