WNS Column: Bo Knows Wrestling

WNS Column: Bo Knows Wrestling

*Warning, this article includes fantasy booking, so if you don't like that sort of thing, stop reading*

 

Don't stop Bo-lieving! 

Bo Dallas' re-debut has been much better than last year's. Granted, in 2013 Bo enterred the Royal Rumble, eliminated the Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett, and he even pulled off an upset victory pin on him the next night on Raw. But the lack of character and charisma was apparent, so back to the drawing board he was sent.

The resurgence of Dallas has been phenomenal, and is truly becoming one of the top highlights for me on television week in and week out.

Everything Bo has done since be called back up to the main shows has been spot on. His promos, his ring work and even the appearance.

I realize Dallas does not look at good as Randy Orton, but the average “skinny-fat” body is perfect for his character. Dallas is not supposed to come off as a big, intimidating, hard-body, like John Cena, but instead, an average looking guy that believes, excuse me BOLIEVES, in himself so much that he can defeat anyone!

Another one of my favorite parts of his look is how he comes to the ring looking like he just swam in a pool. The typical-wrestler look is to add some moisture to the hair, but Bo, wow, he looks like he dumps a gallon of water on himself before coming through the curtain. If you love Bo, you love this aspect; if you hate Bo, this is another annoyance.

Bo's in-ring performances have not been put to the test, but I'm liking what I've seen since his second call up. The Bo-dog feels so right. Much better than the spear he used in NXT. The Bo-dog plays up to Bo not being intimidating or powerful, but the move is filled with so much inspiration and determination than no mortal could EVER kick out of it. I've read internet rumblings suggesting Bo incorporates a submission hold, which he encourages the opponent not to give up. Please, let's make this happen immediately. 

Pretty much every thing that I like about Dallas in ring can be summed up in his match against Titus O'Neil. From showboating then immediately jumping into position for back breakers, to the screams he does when he is thrown over the top rope, I cannot get enough of Bo Dallas.

Speaking of that Titus O'Neil match, the best part? The promo work. Building up Titus, to break him down, to only build him up again-phenomenal. Then the butterfingers comment after O'Neil slaps the mic out of his hand, don't worry Titus that one was on Bo. Dallas is legitimately funny.

 

And don't get me started on the actual sixty seconds of silence Bo gave Daniel Bryan and Wade Barrett on Monday Night Raw. Bravo. Not only to Bo for sticking to the full minute, but also WWE for not cutting him off. (Shame on Jerry Lawler for being blatantly disrespectful and continually interrupting Bo's moment, I was DISGUSTED.)

Where does Bo go from here though?

Dallas flashed his true side during the Money in the Bank pre-show. The fans finally saw Bo lose the hard smile, that is overly done to perfection, when Daniel Bryan rudely called him a Bo-ner. He quickly regained the grin, and being the bigger man that he is, did not retaliate with a disrespectful comment of his own. A part of meet wants this to be a slow build to a  Wrestlmania 31 match. Crazy, right?

Where does this begin?

Let's give Dallas the Intercontinental Championship at Battleground. I know it looks like Cesaro or Dolph Ziggler (I wouldn't complain about either of those two winning the title) are being primed to win the title in the battle royal, but this is MY fantasy booking, and I can do what I want.

So Bo continues on his epic winning streak, the best streak in all of sports entertainment, until Survivor Series. Say Bo wins two matches every week until November 23, 2014, Bo would be 50 and Bo. During this time, Dallas keeps telling the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion to "keep Bo-lieving" and he'll eventually return. This continues until Survivor Series, where Dallas is included in the 5 on 5 classic tag match. The match could potentially be Daniel Bryan's reutrning match from injury, and with the latest reports related to the surgery, this is not too far fetched. Anyways, the last two competitors left in the ring are Bryan and Dallas, and after sending a flying knee to the giant grin on Dallas' face, 50 and Bo is no mo'.

The next night on Raw, the Bo-ner chants rise again. They continue for the next few months, eating away at Bo. How can't Bryan Bo-lieve? Everyone Bo-lieves, at least Bo thinks.

Dallas finally assembles a group of Bo-lievers, a young tag team recently called up from NXT. Who? I don't know, I'm not going to delve too deeply into this. The two would kind of operate like Zach Ryder and Curt Hawkins did for Edge in 2007-2008 though. This cult of Bo-lievers reek havoc through the match, eliminating everyone who enters.

Until, Daniel Bryan hits the ring and says goodbye to all three members.

The next time night on Raw, Bo tries to occupy Raw, kind of like his attempt to take over NXT in June. Of course he is going to fail, and of course it is going to create entertaining TV.

Elimination Chamber is the next pay-per-view, where Dallas is set to face a mystery opponent for the IC title.

*GOD SAVE THE QUEEN*

Bad News Barrett returns at last, reclaiming his prize for the fifth time in his career. During the match, more Bo-ner chants starts, and Dallas is too distracted by the crowd to notice the red elbow sleeve is showing and BOOM! New champ.

What happened? Bo was at the top, and now he fell flat on his face. He just needs to get back up on his horse and ride again. But he can't continue on until he seeks revenge on Bryan.

So at last, he challenges the fan favorite Daniel Bryan, or as Booker T used to call him, Dee Bry, to a match at the granddaddy of them all, Wrestlemania. He eventually hits the Bo-dog, and has his moment at 'Mania 31, one year after Bryan has his 'mania moment.

I know this is gonna russle a lot of people's jimmies, Bo Dallas beating Daniel Bryan, am I insane? Well, yes, I am indeed. And just think, this all came from a simple Bo-ner comment made in June, very WWE type storyline indeed.

What do you guys think? Are you Bo-lievers or are you Bo-leavers? Also, where do you think creative should go with Bo Dallas? Let me know in the comments below. Also, don't forget to follow me on the twittersphere, or tweet despairing things at me (@ttrill_).
