Yesterday at the Royal Rumble Fan Fest held inside the lobby of the U.S. Airways Center, Bo Dallas defeated Leo Krueger in the finals of the 8-man NXT Tournament and won a spot in the 2013 Royal Rumble match tonight on Pay Per View. Dallas the son of WWE veteran Mike Rotunda, has been moving up the ranks on WWE NXT, which is WWE's developmental camp in Florida. Dallas has been fortunate enough to get in the ring recently with some top level WWE talent including the Big Show, but has never had a huge victory to his credit until yesterday. You can watch a brief video of Dallas winning the tournament including a post-match interview with WWE announcer Justin Roberts.
It will be intriguing to see how this young prospective WWE recruit can make an impact in the 30 man Rumble match with main roster superstars like John Cena, Randy Orton, and others. Read a full preview tonight's Rumble with a full list of confirmed names for the big match.
