JBL Speaks – Former WWE ring announcer Justin Roberts recently had an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit. He spoke about JBL being a bully backstage in WWE and that JBL had a crew of guys that terrorized people. Roberts spoke about having his passport stolen on an overseas trip…
He had a group. He was like the leader, and he pretty much had a cabinet, just like on TV. They followed him and did what he asked. It was him vs. ‘the new guys’ He had taken my passport out of my bag, and the next tour I guarded it with my life. On the flight back, Orlando Jordan told me he would watch my back and I should go to the gift shop. I didn’t take his advice. I also remember being told I had to bring beer to the guys on the plane, but I got out of that, luckily.”
JBL then took to Twitter to state that he didn’t take his passport and that it could have been anyone, because according to JBL, he was hated by the whole crew. Well it sounds very much like JBL but he says it wasn’t him for once. And anyone who has listened to his interviews, he always likes to take pride in the bullying he did, so maybe this he didn’t do.
JBL Speaks…Again – The news just don’t end for Johnny Boy today. JBL was asked on Twitter about the reports of bullying and allegedly being responsible for Mauro’s condition that led to his current absence. He had the following to say about it on Twitter…
“No Joe, and I won’t-I shouldn’t commenting on Internet stuff. I play a heel. I sincerely wish Mauro nothing but the absolute best.”
However, while JBL plays a heel, his history of bullying, violence and misconduct is reported, reiterated and backed up by multiple accounts.
Bullet Club Reuniting – The current rumor going around is that Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows are being moved to SmackDown to possibly reunite The Club and AJ Styles.
