Bo Dallas fala da sua personagem e de ter o seu irmão na WWE

Bo Dallas deu uma entrevista ao Ring Rust Radio. Eis os highlights:

Donald Wood: Sunday, July 20 is WWE’s Battleground Pay-Per-View on the WWE Network. You are scheduled to compete in the Battle Royal for the Intercontinental title. Do you Bo-lieve you’re going to walk out as the new champion?

Bo Dallas: Absolutely. You’ve got to look at any situation as the most positive that you can and the most positive is obviously me winning. So if I bo-lieve I can do it, then I can.

Mike Chiari: So many of the all-time greats took their first step toward the top in WWE by winning the Intercontinental Championship. Is that how you view the IC title? As a potential stepping stone to the main-event scene down the line?

Bo Dallas: Oh absolutely. Look at the Intercontinental Championship’s legacy. You’ve got Randy “Macho Man” Savage, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig. The Intercontinental Championship is a legacy, not only something I’ve strived to get in my life, but a big step in my career. Yes, it’s a dream, and if I could accomplish it, it would mean the world to me.

Brandon Galvin: Bo, is there any specific backstory as to how you developed your current character? Was there a certain life-changing moment or other inspiration? Or did happen to stumble on something completely different from the norm and run with it?

Bo Dallas: There was no one moment that I could look at that says, ‘this is what happened.' It was just a series of events. I got the opportunity to become NXT Champion down in the NXT developmental, and luckily I got 8 months as the champion and it just sort of developed. Things started happening and everything was clicking on all cylinders and working and it developed and morphed into its own monster. I just rolled with the punches, kept my eyes open and my ears sharp to everything that was coming in and took it and ran with it.

Donald Wood: Before your incredible winning streak on the main roster, you were the longest-reigning NXT Champion in history. With you experience in both WWE and NXT, what are some of the major difference between performing in NXT and the main roster and what advice would you give to a star making the transition?

Bo Dallas: The way the developmental system is these days is different than it has ever been. They do so much to prepare us for making that jump from NXT to the big stage that there’s not many differences. NXT is its own brand and has become bigger than I think ever thought was possible. But if I can give any inspirational advice to anyone coming up, really look at what you do and know that what works, works. It doesn’t matter the size of the stage, if it works at a smaller stage, it will work at a bigger stage and stay true to what you are and Bo-lieve in yourself.

Mike Chiari: Your brother is currently having a lot of success in WWE as Bray Wyatt and your dad works for the company as well. What’s it like for you to work so closely with your family? Do you think that it’s been beneficial to your career so far?

Bo Dallas: Absolutely. Road life is hard. You’re always traveling and you never get to go home, but when you have your family on the road, you always have someone you can trust to bounce ideas off of and know that the advice you get is in the best interest for you. It’s just a great feeling to know you can have someone like that on the road with you at the hardest times

Brandon Galvin: Not many have the opportunity to grow up in a wrestling family as successful as yours. Are there any memories that stand out to you that helped better prepare you to be a WWE Superstar?

Bo Dallas: Oh yeah, tons. Just being around WWE superstars throughout the past that I consider friends and family, and learning from them and watching them and having little memories growing up that help today and just having the comradery and seeing old friends and people I grew up with. Seeing their sons and their daughters and being together with them, it’s just like a family.

Donald Wood: You have dominated SmackDown as one of the most promising prospects of the last several years. WWE returns to Philadelphia on Tuesday, October 7, for a SmackDown taping. How do you think the hardcore wrestling fans of Philadelphia will react to you?

Bo Dallas: Oh they’re going to love me! I’ve got to look at any situation as a positive situation, and I know there are some Bo-lievers out there in Philadelphia somewhere. If they’re not, I’m going to make them one.

Mike Chiari: Early last year you had a brief run on the main roster when you entered the Royal Rumble and then beat Wade Barrett the next night on Raw. Do you feel like that taste of being a full-time WWE Superstar helped prepare you for your current stint?

Bo Dallas: Yes, absolutely. I got the taste which lit a fire under me. In this industry, you have to evolve to stay relevant, what I wanted, I felt. So I had that eight months to know that that’s what I wanted and just worked as hard as I could, nonstop, to get where I needed to be, develop this character and develop who I am today. So yes, it absolutely lit a fire under me.

Brandon Galvin: WWE Network has provided fans and wrestlers with the opportunity to rewatch and relive their favorite moments. Are there any wrestlers that you've gone back to study in order to help you continue to develop into one of the top WWE Superstars?

Bo Dallas: Oh yeah, constantly. I’m on the WWE Network all the time. If I have free time, if I wasn’t on the radio right now, I would be on the WWE Network. There’s tons. A lot of what I watch is Mr. Perfect. I am a diehard fan of Mr. Perfect and Curt Hennig and his work. If I could go back in time and be in the ring with him, I would do anything for it. But I watch a lot of Curt Hennig’s old matches.

Vince Russo revela o que mais se arrepende no wrestling

O mais recente artigo de Vince Russo para o What Culture indica os seus dez maiores arrependimentos no wrestling. Na nona posição é citado ter posto Vince McMahon com maior prioridade que a sua família. Russo disse:

"This was a huge mistake for me. Something I wish that I could take back every day—but, can’t. My wife raised my kids on her own without me being there—it’s that simple. Rather than put my time and effort into the only thing that should have mattered to me—I was out chasing ratings that in the big scheme of things meant absolutely nothing. I put Vince McMahon and the WWE before my own family, and just writing that sickens me.

I missed my son hitting his first home run—to this very day that still haunts me. And, for what, somebody who, went it came down to it, didn’t give a s**t about me? He only cared when I was the cash cow delivering him numbers. For that, I gave up my family. That’s just about as sad as it gets."

Russo's #2 regret was that he should have stood up to Eric Bischoff in TNA. He wrote:

"From the time Jeff Jarrett was taken from power due to the Kurt/Karen Angle incident, I was put in charge of creative and was working with Matt Conway. During that time, Matt and I were making a concerted effort to build the younger guys on the TNA roster. When Eric Bischoff came in, he literally ripped up our format, and attempted to start over. If you look back, many veterans were brought into TNA at that time—and, they became the core of our roster.

I felt that was a huge mistake. At that time I thought it was vital to the future success of TNA, that we build a much younger roster. But, I didn’t stand up to Eric. I chose not to debate him because I felt that it was clear that I was just not going to win. So—I tapped out. Again—looking back—I should have put up more of a fight because deep down inside—I knew I was right."

Russo's biggest regret was that he should have made wrestling a better place. He wrote:

"I had 23 years to make an impact on the wrestling business—and, I don’t feel like I accomplished that. No, I’m not talking about what you see on your television screen every week; I’m talking about what goes on behind the scenes. There are many things about the wrestling business I don’t care for—many things. It is ego driven, it is selfish, and for the most part—nobody cares –REALLY CARES—about anybody else. It’s each man and woman for themselves and that doesn’t make for a very pleasant working environment. I wish I would have worked harder on improving that—I really do. Unfortunately, most of the time I was concerned with watching my own back."

Jim Ross comenta o que aconteceu no RAW

O WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross fez uso do seu blog para comentar o que aconteceu no RAW. Ross disse:

- Stephanie McMahon arguably stole the show with her interaction with Brie Bella and subsequently Steph getting 'arrested.' Her facials were priceless as was her timing and her natural ability to be a heel. The acorn doesn't fall far from the tree. Steph wrestling at Summer Slam is a gimme as it should be.

- Enjoyed Paige's heel turn on AJ Lee but it was a week late as Sunday's Divas Title bout had no identity. Nonetheless, I like the pairing.

- It's somewhat insane for some fans to think that Bray Wyatt losing at Battle Ground to Chris Jericho was disastrous to Bray's career which is actually laughable. Working with Jericho, who arguably should be the heel in this marriage, will do nothing but help Wyatt improve and Bray will undoubtedly win the blow off down the road.

- The IC Title is ice cold and the way the championship is being booked is a head scratcher. The IC and US title holders the past year have likely had some of the worse won-loss records on the broadcasts of any talents on the roster. That's no way to build a title. Why there is no long term, thought out program for both the IC and the US Champions is an unacceptable mystery.

- It makes perfect sense for Brock Lesnar to challenge John Cena for the WWE Title at Summer Slam and for Lesnar, as I've outlined on the Ross Report podcast the past couple of months, to win the title and then lose it to Roman Reigns at WM31. I love Lesnar as champion and his infrequent, in person schedule of making Monday Night Raw shows doesn't bother me at all especially if the creative team has their thinking caps on and the booking is territory-like as in where the world champion was never on regular, weekly TV.

Paul Heyman @HeymanHustle promo to close RAW was one of the best that I have heard in years. Even though I am WAY out of the WWE loop, I am still proud that I was able to help Paul early in his career and hope that his DVD that's released soon will be a huge hit. Listen to Heyman's promo again and see how he covered every base and will have the Summer Slam crowd in LA loudly cheering for the 'Angry Viking' vs. ' The Dr. of Thugonomics' as Paul described Cena. In other worlds, the main event at S'Slam will be loaded with emotion especially if Cena takes it dead serious in his promos between now and then.

- Enjoyed Xavier Woods, Big E, and Kofi Kingston seemingly attempting to form a faction. Lots of Nation of Domination references on Twitter @JRsBBQ on this one but that doesn't bother me. All three talents, and who knows if they don't add another member, have potential and perhaps this will get them quality TV time and get all involved in the game. It's main event or bust for all three who should look at this as crunch time as it relates to getting to the next level.
