While JBL has often been labeled as a “bully” in the world of professional wrestling, Maven says that’s not the case.
The former WWE Tough Enough winner recently took to his YouTube page to recall his memories of working with JBL and defended the WWE Hall of Famer in regard to being called a bully.
You can check out some highlights from the video below:
On his memories of working with JBL: “I could stand to learn a lot about the financial industry from this guy. Of course, I’m talking about Hall of Famer, JBL, one of the toughest SOBs. I still remember a match he had at a pay-per-view and after the match, he comes back and his whole entire face is just bloody and just battered. Never heard any complaining, you never heard any type of him being upset in any way. Man knew how to do business.”
On JBL’s reputation as a bully: “Now the dirt sheets will always say that JBL was a bully backstage. To be honest with you, JBL is just loud. JBL is boisterous. JBL is jovial. John’s not afraid to tell you what he wants and he’s not afraid to tell you how he’s gonna get to what he wants. A lot of people might view that as being a bully. John is also a pretty stiff wrestler, from what I’ve heard. That means when John hits you with a clothesline, you’re gonna feel that clothesline, but that’s the business. I never knew him as a bully, but sometimes when people are loud, it might rub people the wrong way. Trust me, one of the nicest guys in the world.”
