Professional wrestler Bo Dallas, who burst onto the WWE scene in early 2013 — then burst off it again, still in early 2013 — has set a world record for the shortest “push” in history.
“I’m honored, I guess,” said Dallas, a bright-eyed upstart whom most WWE fans have already about due to WWE’s abrupt lack of interest in promoting him.
The son of Irwin R. Schyster and grandson of Blackjack Mulligan, Dallas seemed destined for great things in professional wrestling. And, for several minutes in late February of this year, he achieved a few things.
After a strong showing at the Royal Rumble and an upset victory over Wade Barrett, however, Dallas disappeared from mainstream wrestling television, and was thus honored by the Guinness Book of World Records for his blink-and-you’ll-miss it push.
Dallas said it was an honor just to be nominated for the distinction among such peers as Sin Cara, Mordecai and Tensai.
