Bo Dallas Talks Brother Bray Wyatt, Joey Styles Speaks To Shelly Martinez (Video), Birthdays

- Shelly Martinez chronicles her recent appearance at the New England Fanfest in her latest video. Shelly's former WWE peers, Joey Styles, Simon Dean and Kenny Dykstra, appear. Styles in particular recalls his time working with Shelly in WWE's version of ECW.

- Bo Dallas and Bray Wyatt are part of one of the greatest wrestling families in history; their grandfather is WWE Hall of Famer Blackjack Mulligan, their father is Mike "I.R.S." Rotunda and uncles are WWE Hall of Famer Barry Windham and former WCW World Tag Team Champion Kendall Windham. Despite their great family heritage, the two prefer to carve out their own identity.

"We both came into this with the same mindset, that we are going to be our identities. We wanted our success to be for ourselves. As much as we respect and love our father, grandfather and uncles, we didn't want to become molds of them. We wanted this path to be our own. So far I think we accomplished that," Dallas said in an interview with ChicagoNow.com promoting Raw in Chicago on September 29.

"I don't think you look at myself or my brother and say, "Oh, that's the sons of former wrestler IRS". To have the family on the road with you it's great to have somebody bounce ideas off of and help you critique you. You can trust those people and you can't buy that relationship; it's a beautiful thing."

Bray also addressed the possibility of facing brother Bray, "Right now I think Bray is doing that quite well and I have my own agenda. But you never know maybe one day down the road maybe Bo Dallas will cross paths with Bray Wyatt. Maybe our differences will come to a head in the future. With the WWE you just don't know."

Dallas also discussed his character, transitioning from NXT to WWE's main roster, his father's involvement in his career, and more. The full interview is available here.

- Celebrating birthdays on Monday are Nick Jackson (known as Jeremy Buck in TNA Wrestling), who turns 25, and Lindsay Hayward, the giant women's wrestler who was dismissed by WWE before she could appear on NXT in 2010. She turns 27.
