Bo Dallas to feud with Wade Barrett:
After his appearance in last night’s Royal Rumble it looks like NXT star Bo Dallas will immediately be put in to a program with Wade Barrett.
Dallas, who won a tournament at Saturday’s Fan Fest to earn a spot in the match, shockingly eliminated Wade Barrett mid way through. Dallas was then pulled over the rope by Barret and given a clothesline.
On Twitter Barret gave the hint that the young star may be headed to Raw tonight:
“If @TheBoDallas has any sense left, he’ll stay well clear of Raw tomorrow night and bugger off back to NXT where he belongs. #DumbKid”
NXT trainer Bill DeMott had the following to say about Bo’s debut:
“We are very proud of @TheBoDallas for representing #nxt but you might have pissed off @WadeBarrett.”
“If you don’t teach these guys respect at NXT, i’ll do it for you.”
NXT Champ Big E. Langston was not happy that he was overlooked, writing on Twitter:
“Bo Dallas “earns” a spot in the #RoyalRumble but your #NXT Champ is in absentia?!? #PalmGreaser”
Dallas is of course the brother of Bray Wyatt (Husky Harris), son of Mike Rotunda (IRS), and nephew of Barry and Kendall Windham.
