Bo Dallas was in a 'test match' at WrestleMania 37, did he play The Fiend before WWE release?

Bo Dallas's 13-year stint with the WWE ended as he was one of ten superstars recently released by the company. Fans had not seen Bo on WWE TV since 2019, and his departure from the company was widely expected sooner rather than later.

Fightful Select has now published several backstage notes on Bo Dallas's WWE release.

Bo was present backstage during some of the recent SmackDown episodes, and Fightful's report added that WWE had no creative plans for the former NXT Champion.

As we reported yesterday in the daily WWE Rumor Roundup, Bo was also spotted exiting the Raymond James Stadium after night one of WrestleMania 37.

Fightful believes Bo Dallas was part of the WrestleMania festivities on Friday. He even 'participated in a test match' for a few minutes at WrestleMania to help the crew with the ring setup and its testing.

Did Bo Dallas wear The Fiend's mask at WrestleMania 37?

The answer is a simple 'no,' as Fightful revealed. The Fiend returned at WrestleMania 37 and surprisingly lost to Randy Orton in a bizarre six-minute match.

While the match's finish created buzz online, another big piece of speculation started doing the rounds on social media. Fans believed that Bray Wyatt was never at WrestleMania and that it was Bo Dallas who played The Fiend's gimmick.

All the rumors can now be squashed for good as Bo Dallas never portrayed The Fiend at any given time in the WWE. He has already laid the groundwork for his life after the WWE release as he is reportedly looking into 'additional business ventures.'

It was revealed in February that Bo Dallas had established a real estate company with Liv Morgan. Bo is still 30 years old and can embark on a potentially fulfilling in-ring run if he wishes to have one. However, the younger brother of Bray Wyatt seems to have found avenues outside the squared circle.

All of us here at Sportskeeda Wrestling send our best wishes to Bo Dallas for all his future endeavors.

One year after his passing, we at Sportskeeda paid tribute to our very own Road Warrior Animal here.
