In an interview with This Is Infamous, Bo Dallas revealed that Kurt Angle's early character is the one that's the most similar to his own. Here are highlights:

On which superstars he has learned from: "Yes, Kurt Angle is the #1 when it comes to who is most similar to what I'm doing and that's who I've looked up to a lot, and learned many things from. Honestly the other WWE Superstar that I can say I've learned from was John Cena, taking his messages and taking them to the fullest with complete positivity. Never back down, never give up, and Bo-lieving in that and not straying from that and believing John Cena's messages to the fullest."

On doing better with his main roster call-up than Adam Rose or Paige: "Well I can't speak for them, but for me, in NXT the Bo Dallas character is so developed. You know everything about him, and I need people around the world to get to know me from where I started before they can… It's like any relationship. You just start talking about the important things… You get to know them, and once you get to know them you get to know a little bit more and a little bit more, so I've gotta start back. It's a new relationship. It's a whole new world. So I start at the beginning, and once they get to know more about me they get to know more about me, and that continues it all. And then at the end, they all Bo-lieve."

On if he thinks he was ready when he originally came up in 2013: "I do feel that I was ready at that point in time, but looking back, after going through what I've gone through, I have so many more experiences to have. Luckily I got the opportunity. So yeah, I felt more than ready, but looking back, I'm glad that I got the opportunity to go through what I went through because I want to be where I am today, and as comfortable and positive as I am today."
