There have been rumors spreading from a Twitter user regarding Bo Dallas getting kicked off of a plane for being intoxicated, as seen by this article on Fansided. It states that Dallas was being unruly on the flight, and was singing Lion King songs loudly while on the phone with his wife. He apparently told the pilot - and everyone else - to "f-ck themselves" before walking off. Airport police were allegedly called, but he was not arrested. Bo was scheduled to wrestle at tonight's WWE live event in Puebla. We were holding off on reporting anything until we received comment from WWE, however the story has been picking up steam and is appearing on many websites, all sourcing the original Twitter account. We will let you know if we receive word from WWE.
More Details On Bo Dallas Being Kicked Off Plane, Seth Rollins Heat With Airport Gate Agents
As noted, there was an incident with Bo Dallas at the Dallas Fort Worth airport this past Friday. The details were first posted on Twitter by Steven Bell, who hosts The Late Shift podcast.

I spoke to Bell last night, who told me that his wife called him from the airport to tell him that there were a bunch of wrestlers at the airport, like Roman Reigns, Bayley and Rusev. While he was talking to her, she told him that Charlotte, Bo Dallas and one of the Usos were hanging out at an airport restaurant. She said that their flight was delayed, so they were there for a few hours. In the background while talking to his wife, he could hear Bo Dallas singing a song from The Lion King as the wrestlers were leaving the restaurant to go board.
Bell said that his wife was not on the same plane as the wrestlers, but she saw Bo Dallas being escorted off the plane by the pilot. A flight attendant told Dallas that he couldn't board because of his condition. Bo was trying to get back on and was denied, and he told the pilot to "f--k themselves." He also told gate agents to "f--k themselves" before walking off.
Steven @stevenfnbell Staff were apparently attempting to book him on a later flight when he blew up on them. Wife said he was being really loud and belligerent 7:11 PM - 26 Aug 2016 7 7 Retweets 6 6 likes
I asked Bell about his tweet about Seth Rollins being "a d-ck." He said that his wife overheard gate agents saying that Rollins was a d-ck.
Steven @stevenfnbell Confirmation from boarding staff that Bo was booted for being drunk. And apparently Rollins is a dick. 6:53 PM - 26 Aug 2016 48 48 Retweets 37 37 likes
UndertakerFreak1127 @utf1127 @stevenfnbell What made Rollins a dick? Curious Follow Steven @stevenfnbell @utf1127 He was apparently rude to airport staff. My wife overheard them saying he was a dick. Bo didn't say it despite many sites saying so 3:05 AM - 27 Aug 2016 Retweets 1 1 like
Police arrived at the scene, but his wife had to board the plane so she doesn't know if Bo actually got arrested. Bo was arrested for drunk driving in 2013, however there are no arrest records for him from over the weekend.
Steven @stevenfnbell Oh excrement. Police have arrived at the terminal and are going off with the managers to look for the very disruptive Bo Dallas. 6:55 PM - 26 Aug 2016 30 30 Retweets 10 10 likes
As noted, Bo was scheduled to compete at last night's WWE live event in Puebla, where he was slated to team with Curtis Axel to face The Usos. Bo was not at the event, and Jey Uso faced Axel in a singles match instead, with Jimmy Uso in Jey's corner.
BO DALLAS ARRESTED FOR PUBLIC INTOXICATION LAST FRIDAY BY DAVE MELTZER | @davemeltzerwon | AUG 29, 2016 3:07 PM
Taylor Rotunda (Bo Dallas) was arrested on Friday at DFW Airport. Rotunda was charged with public intoxication and drunkenness at 7:15 p.m. local time. Officers came after he was taken off the connecting plane that a number of WWE stars were on, headed to Mexico for the two-day tour.
Rotunda didn't fly to Mexico for the first or second show. Police were called after Rotunda was singing a song from the Lion King and allegedly said some expletives to crew members and was kicked off the flight. Airport police found him six gates away and the arrest report said he smelled of alcohol and admitted he had been drinking a little as well as slurring his words.
Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel were scheduled to face the Usos on both nights of the tour, but instead Axel worked singles matches on it. WWE has not made any statement about the incident.
