The Wyatt Family almost had a new member in Bo Dallas, but the decision to pair him with Bray Wyatt was nixed. Also, Dax Harwood shared a personal account about weight struggles and bulimia.
Bo Dallas – Bray Wyatt Angle
Bo Dallas and ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt are brothers, but WWE does not publicly acknowledge their relationship. Therefore, some have wondered about pairing the two together.
Well, when Arn Anderson was still a WWE producer, he did just that. He had a vision where Bray would protect his brother from the Wyatt Family and eventually the stable would grow.
“I pitched a deal where you brought [Bo Dallas] in with the Wyatts and you told him who he was,” said Anderson. “He was Bray Wyatt’s brother and he was Mike Rotunda’s [IRS] son.”
“And you know, do a deal where, let’s just say that Mike came down during one of Wyatt’s matches in his capacity as a producer was trying to break up a fight.”
“Big Red and Brodie Lee, they dropped Mike and for the first time you had Bray Wyatt, you know, who, other than join in what was going in with the other two Wyatts, he pulled them off and said, ‘Not him, not him.’ 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.”
“Now you have the Wyatts back off and Bo would be introduced like the babyface other brother. You put him there with that group and you’ve got all these monsters with these foot-long beards, and there you’ve got this babyface who is Bray Wyatt’s legitimate brother.”
“And you know, he’s standing over here, and it would just open up different avenues to give the kid a chance to get started and in the mix with top talent.”
