The creative department was then deftly able to slowly convert his character into a lovable underdog that could be a serious threat in the ring.

While the internet wrestling community has been yearning for some sort of interaction between the real life brothers, WWE has no plan for a program featuring both Bo Dallas and Bray Wyatt. An idea has been floated around since both characters have elements of mind control, but management feels that it is too much of a stretch for fans to believe.

Since he unintentionally upset the internet wrestling community, JBL decided to go on social media to provide an apology and an explanation. He stated the "zombie Eddie Guerrero" comment was done in jest and that he would never insult his good friend.
