John Bradshaw Layfield was a huge part of WWE for a very long time. He recently stepped down in his role as SmackDown Live announcer in order to focus more on his charity work.
JBL spoke to Riju at Sportskeeda and covered several subjects. But one of the more interesting portions was how Layfield expertly skirted around the subject when asked if he could tell any stories concerning the legendary “wrestler’s court.”
“A funny Wrestler’s Court story?” John Bradshaw Layfield asked. “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.”
Bradshaw was also asked about his future with WWE. While he might not be appearing on WWE television as often as he used to, JBL is still very much a part of the family.
“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.”
“[Simmons] 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.”
