Five NXT Call Ups That Have Failed on the Main Roster

Bo Dallas

Of all the former NXT champions to have been called up to the WWE Bo Dallas is the only one not to have held any gold at all on the main roster. What makes this even more surprising is that Bo’s NXT title reign is the third longest in the company’s history- standing at an impressive 280 days.

Bo is the classic example of a character just failing to translate onto the main roster. Bo’s inspirational speeches were arrogance personified in NXT and the guy would draw heat in whatever arena he stepped in. Unfortunately, when he arrived on the big stage, his gimmick was tweaked ever so slightly and instead of arrogance we were given one of the most tedious and annoying characters the company has seen in a long time.

Despite going a lengthy unbeaten run after his debut, Bo could never get any sort of momentum going and eventually just became a jobber on the main roster. His inclusion in The Social Outcasts all but killed his career and he has not been seen on TV so far this year.
