JBL Says He's Still A Part Of The WWE Family

John Bradshaw Layfield is one of the more controversial names in WWE history, with an alleged history of bullying, hazing, and other antics. 

JBL isn't without his bright side, however. He's been in Mumbai, India doing charity work, and spoke to reporters to promote it. During an interview with Sportskeeda, he was asked by the many tales of wrestler's court by Riju Gasgupta.

Ash Costello: If You Think This Is All You’re Going To See Of Me In Wrestling, You’re Sorely Mistaken

A funny Wrestler’s Court story? I’m not sure I can tell any of those to the media. There are so many. I had so many with Big Show in Iraq. Big Show was…we had a lot of fun. He didn’t fit in the latrines, he was so big.

So, I had to figure out a different way for him to go to the bathroom. At that time, he was 500 something lbs. He’s a true giant. Had a lot of fun with Big Show. One time we were playing golf and he had the old man putter. So he sneaks the putter into the hole and sucks the ball out. I’m like ‘What are you doing?’. He’s like my hand’s too big to fit in the hole. And it was. His hand was too big to fit in the golf hole.”

Despite leaving WWE over travel issues recently, JBL still very much considers himself a part of WWE's family and appears to be on good terms with the company.

I’m still part of the WWE family which I’m thrilled about. I’ve been there for twenty-one years. I’ll still be going back for WrestleMania and Tribute to the Troops.

I had no chance to come to places like India and visit Magic Bus, and do some things that I really wanted to do, as long as I was doing commentary every week. So, I got a chance to back off and do a few big events every year which I love doing. Love seeing Ron Simmons from the APA. He comes to all the big events too. But I love being able to come out here and visit with the kids and learning what people are doing, which to me is the most important work in the world.”
