JBL was one of the most successful heel characters in modern WWE history. Layfield began his career in professional wrestling in the early 1990s, eventually signing a contract with the then World Wrestling Federation in January 1996.
During his long stint serving Vince McMahon, John won the WWE Championship once, the Intercontinental belt once, and the tag team title three times. He turns out to be the 10th all-time wrestler to have completed the Grand Slam in its original format.
Also for this reason, in 2021 he was inducted into the Hall of Fame. The highlight of his career was undoubtedly his 280 days as WWE Champion between June 2004 and April 2005. During a recent interview with Talking Tough, Bradshaw silenced the rumors of his possible return to the ring.
The 54-year-old, who hasn't played a match since 2009, worked for WWE as a commentator and analyst during PPV pre-shows. JBL said:"“I strongly rule out my return to the ring, but I could re-enter the world of wrestling in a new way.
If I was offered to help some guy emerge, I would think about it very carefully and maybe I would accept. As for the possibility of seeing myself in the ring again, I have to answer with a sharp no, since the body does not allow me.
At the same time, I have always loved working with young talents. I really like to pass on my experience and my philosophy to superstars on the launch pad. If it were a heel character, it would fit perfectly. The role of manager would be problematic for John:"“I'm too tall to be a manager.
My height is higher than that of most wrestlers, so I could make my client look excessively small and run the risk of scaling him down." WWE is trying hard to put the huge crisis generated by the pandemic behind it.
Here's the backstage thought on Becky Lynch at SmackDown
The match for the women's title between Friday Night Smackdown champion Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair was staged at Extreme Rules 2021.
The two staged a very interesting match but ended with a No Contest and disqualification due to the intervention of the returning Sasha Banks who attacked both contenders and gave an important signal for the belt. Becky Lynch in turn returned to SummerSlam by surprise after Sasha was deemed medically unfit to play a match.
The surprise return of The Boss saw her win the match titled in that Pay per View in a few seconds and from that moment she is the undisputed champion of Smackdown. Becky has arrived at SmackDown as a last-minute substitute, but now that as Wrestling Inc says Sasha is ready there is curiosity about how the Stamford company will handle the situation and the storyline between the three.
Becky Lynch, also known for being Seth Rollins' real-life wife, is one of WWE's leading female stars and latest rumors say WWE is happy with Becky's work so far. In particular, according to what Fightful Select reports, the WWE and the whole backstage are very satisfied with the storyline that has involved Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair in recent weeks and above all Lynch has fully impressed the leaders since the day of her return to WWE.
As for Sasha Banks, it was reported that the wrestler had been ready to return to the ring for several weeks but she still had to return as the Friday Night Smackdown creative team had no plans for her. The feud between Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks never ended due to the forfeit of the latter at SummerSlam, while Banks had nothing pending against Becky except that belt that could soon lead the three contenders to compete.
From today on there is a third inconvenience in the titled round of the blue show and she is back in the ring hungrier than ever.
