Bo Dallas' Reevaluation (2015)

His name is Bo Dallas and Cageside Seats readers have reported back on what they love and loathe about the former NXT Champion. Here's the full evaluation.

What you loved:

  1. The Gif - You know the one, it's possibly the best gif from 2014.
  2. Heel - So many of you want to punch him in the face, and absolutely love that's the reaction he gets out of you. His heel work is unique, and hopefully in 2015 it gets over with the masses.
  3. Gimmick - So much smiling and giving thumbs up to everybody! Why is he in all white? I can't stand him!
  4. Mic - The big stage didn't hurt him, he was given the mic right off the bat and did great.
  5. "Butterfingers" - He's a great example of his work.

Best comment comes via DylanGeorge:

"I’m a heel fan, me and Dallas have always clicked. His unwarranted arrogance and belief that he has many 'Bo-lievers' is early Jericho-like."


What you loathed:

  1. Creative - His streak was a great idea, but after that, it's been completely downhill with no direction. Also, many of you are concerned with his somewhat low ceiling.
  2. Streak Ending - It wasn't going to last forever, but R-Truth ends it? Really? There was hardly a feud born out of his first loss, what a waste.
  3. In-Ring - Much like last year, still not the best in the ring, finisher is still disliked, as well. Hopefully with more time this will improve.
  4. Injury - Out with a foot injury since November, could we see him at the Royal Rumble?
  5. Physique - Not that everyone needs to look like Reigns, but some time in the gym wouldn't hurt. Coming out mad wet doesn't help things either.

Best comment comes via awakeasaurusrex:

"He’s been horribly booked. I honestly thought his streak was going to go to 21 and BO, at which point Paul Heyman would show up, make a BO-ROCK LESNAR pun, and have Lesnar smash the upstart. I don’t mind that they didn’t go with that conclusion to it – what I mind is the fact that they pointlessly threw away the end of the streak with no apparent repercussions whatsoever, not even a feud."

On to the poll! With 283 votes, Bo Dallas' average score is 3.4, last year he received a 2.8.

Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow's pick embodies everything that is right in pro wrestling.

Until then!
