WWE's Bo Dallas Still Missing From TV, Reportedly Getting In To Real Estate
There's apparently a reason for Dallas being gone, and it's because creative has nothing for him.
"Creative has nothing for you" isn't just a Highspots Wrestling Network comedy series, it's also what wrestler Bo Dallas has been hearing from WWE writers for more than a year. The former NXT and 24/7 Champion hasn't been seen on WWE programming since 2019's Crown Jewel show, as he prepares for life after wrestling working in real estate.
Recently, Dave Meltzer spoke about the situation on Wrestling Observer Radio. "You know how they say creative has nothing for him,' Meltzer said (via WrestleTalk). "In his case, that's actually true. Usually when people say that, it's something else. I don't know why he's never been cut, they never use him. But, they didn't cut him, and they cut all of those guys that they cut in April. He's still there, still got a job. No idea what or why or anything. Big mystery."
Additionally, Meltzer reported that Dallas and fellow WWE wrestler Liv Morgan live on a farm together and have been studying and starting a family real estate business. However, he's still reportedly getting paid by WWE.
In April 2020, WWE had what is referred to as Black Wednesday, a day that saw the release of more than 20 wrestlers--many of which ended up in AEW and Impact. At that time, Dallas was partnered with Curtis Axel, and Axel was one of the stars who lost his job.
Dallas last wrestled at Crown Jewel in October 2019, teaming with Curtis Axel against New Day members Big E and Kofi Kingston. This came after a long string of losses stemming back to March of that year. Six months prior to the start of the losing streak, the duo were the Raw Tag Team Champions.
