Bo Dallas Talks About His Undefeated Streak Ending, Working In WWE NXT, His Lineage

– Bo Dallas recently spoke with Jim Varsallone of The Miami Herald. Below are some highlights:

Working in NXT:
“The NXT today is a developmental system unlike anything that has ever been done before. It’s a great platform for someone to grow. I had the opportunity to do that and live through it. I wouldn’t be the same performer if I didn’t get the chance to go down to NXT and perform in front of a crowd like that. It really helped me hone my craft and character unlike I ever thought possible.”

Not resting on his lineage:
“Obviously, you have the big shoes to fill and having people wondering if you will ever compare up to your family members. I got into this business to make it as myself, whatever that was. I don’t think you look at me and say, ‘Wow, he took a lot from his father or grandfather or uncles.’ I think I’m a completely different entity. I think I do a good job distancing myself from that.”

His streak ending to R-Truth on RAW:
“The undefeated streak was great, but you are forever changing to keep yourself relevant and driven. No matter what happens, you’re going to come out okay…You never know where the character is going to go. I never knew I was going to get to this point. If I can say anything, I have my eyes set on the Intercontinental championship. So whoever is holding that at any point, that is where I’m going now…Bret “The Hitman” Hart, Shawn Michaels, Randy “Macho Man” Savage, the Intercontinental title needs to be put on that pedestal it was when I was growing up. Hopefully, I can strive to do that one day.”
