Can Bo Dallas still make a "bo-liever" out of you?
Is it too little, too late for WWE to start prominently pushing Bo Dallas again?
Several Superstars have stood to benefit from the return of WWE's Brand Split earlier this summer, as it has presented a number of names with opportunities to break out on their own in the absence of others. AJ Styles has since become the WWE World champion, Becky Lynch has ruled SmackDown's women's division, and even Darren Young and Titus O'Neil are getting more television time than they ever were before (despite how atrocious their current feud is).
Jobbers have been no exception to this as well. After many months away from WWE TV, Bo Dallas recently resurfaced on Raw, carrying a sign that read “Bo-lieve in Bo” down to the ring with him before promptly squashing a local athlete.
He seemed to have a new aggressiveness about him, which is the complete opposite from what we've been accustomed to seeing from him throughout his tenure in WWE.
In fact, the last we saw of Dallas on the flagship show, he was parading around with the rest of The Social Outcasts, Heath Slater and Curtis Axel. They were an entertaining tandem, but it was obvious that they were never meant to be anything more than an undercard comedy act.
Regardless, Dallas thrived in the role simply because his humor has always been universally appealing for audiences, whether he's been escorted out of Full Sail University by security or spitting rhymes with Flo Rida on Raw.
But did WWE miss their prime opportunity to push Bo Dallas two years ago when he initially arrived on the WWE scene?
