Erick Rowan Reveals There Were Really No Plans Of Having Bo Dallas In The Wyatt Family

The Wyatt Family faction was made up of Bray Wyatt, former WWE talents Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman and the late Brodie Lee (Luke Harper), but there were rumors and speculations of Bo Dallas, the real-life brother of Bray Wyatt to be part of the faction as well, especially after his “Bo-lieve” gimmick was discontinued on WWE TV.

Former WWE Star Erick Rowan [Erick Redbeard] recently spoke with Sportskeeda and revealed that it was not really in the plans of Bo Dallas being put in the Wyatt Family.

Erick Rowan said:

“No [there were never any such plans].” “Because it’s a character, not real life.”

Rowan then talked about the origins of the Wyatt Family and their first video vignettes on NXT.

Erick Rowan said:

“It started with the characters that Bray Wyatt had with the white shirts, stuff like that.” “Then he did some sort of vignettes with Dusty [Rhodes], and it was completely kind of a different thing, and then, when they finally decided to kind of go with it, I know Brodie was going to be like the first son of, you know, Bray. He was just called the first son, and he was on NXT for a couple of weeks, and NXT had started separating itself from main roster stuff to being its own entity and show.”

Rowan then discussed finding it funny to be playing the roles of Bray Wyatt's followers as he and the late Luke Harper (Brodie Lee) were older then him.

Erick Rowan said:

“Then like, maybe three days before because we had done things backstage, like, I tried different promos with them, but like I would wear different masks, no masks, jammer bottoms, I didn’t know what I was going to wear. It was like two days before one of the NXT tapings; they were like, ‘Okay, you are going to be the second son of Bray, which was funny because we were older than him. But it’s funny, and it just kind of evolved from there with the rocking chairs and all that stuff.”
