Bo Dallas Confirms In-Ring Return Is Coming Soon

Bo Dallas

Former WWE Superstar Bo Dallas has revealed that he plans to return to wrestling within the next two or three months.

Bo Dallas, real name Taylor Rotunda, hasn’t wrestled since appearing at a WWE live event in Switzerland in November 2019. Shortly after this he took some time off, while also dealing with a neck injury.

Dallas remained with the company until April 2021 when he was released, but never returned to television.

Since leaving WWE the former Tag Team Champion is yet to return to wrestling in any capacity, leading some to wonder whether he is done with the industry altogether. However, speaking during a Q&A session during an event with For The Love of Wrestling, Dallas said that his in-ring career is far from over.

The former NXT Champion explained that he had taken a break from wrestling to work on some other projects but would be getting back in the ring in two or three months.

“Absolutely not,” Rotunda said. “I’m not – I’m the furthest from ‘done with wrestling’ that you can possibly be. I spent the past year diving into a bunch of different ventures outside of wrestling. But wrestling has never left my heart, not for one second.

“I just wanted to get a couple things done before I dive back in and do something that I really cared about. And now that I got everything kinda wrapped up and working on, um, within the next 2-3 months you’ll see me back in the ring somewhere very soon because the love of wrestling has never left me and I’ve always known I was coming back to it soon. But I just needed to get some other stuff done. But I’ll be back in the ring really, really soon. I promise.”

The star also seemingly offered a hint as to where he might end up next. The third generation wrestler said that his match in NXT with Adrian Neville was his favourite to date, and hopes to wrestle him again soon. Neville currently appears in AEW under the name PAC.

“My favourite match of my career up to this point was with Adrian Neville at (NXT) Arrival, the ladder match with Adrian Neville; every match I ever had with him,” Rotunda recalled. “He’s, up to this point, my favourite opponent I’ve ever been in the ring with and I’m looking forward to possibly getting back in the ring with him sometime really soon.”

Rotunda’s brother Windham, formerly known as Bray Wyatt, recently got engaged to his long-time partner JoJo Offerman.
