WWE Legend Mike Rotunda recently spoke about WWE Chairman Vince McMahon not providing much of a chance to former WWE star Bo Dallas, who is Mike’s son. He believes that Bo Dallas should have been provided more chance on the main roster.
Mike Rotunda believes Vince McMahon didn’t give Bo Dallas a chance
Rotunda’s sons Taylor (Bo Dallas) and Windham (Bray Wyatt) worked for WWE for more than a decade before receiving their releases in 2021. While Wyatt achieved a lot of success on the main roster, Dallas regularly struggled for television time following his call-up from NXT.
Rotunda, known as I.R.S. during his days as an in-ring performer, spoke on Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw about his sons’ contrasting WWE fortunes. He lavished praise on both of his sons. He said that Dallas is a great worker, while he believes Bray Wyatt got over due to his promo skills:
“They were both successful. Vince I don’t think gave my younger son Taylor a chance, because Taylor’s a hell of a worker. He really is. You can’t teach that timing and stuff, and Windham had a great gimmick. He got over because he could talk. It was a unique situation, so I’m proud of them both.”
Bo Dallas held the NXT Championship for 260 days between May 2013 and February 2014. He then won 17 matches in a row on WWE’s main roster before finally losing to R-Truth on RAW in July 2014. Between 2014 and 2019, the former B-Team member’s only pay-per-view singles matches came against Kofi Kingston (Payback 2014) and Neville (Elimination Chamber 2015).
The former NXT Champion’s main-roster accomplishments include winning the RAW Tag Team Championship (w/ Curtis Axel) and the 24/7 Championship. His final WWE match ended in defeat in a six-man tag team encounter at a live event in November 2019.
