JBL Speaks On His Agent Role
It took a little time for him to become a renowned star but he actually became quite a famous during the famous Attitude era of WWE. He was famously known as Bradshaw during the time. He teamed up with Ron Simmons aka Farooq and together they were known as the Acolytes Protection Agency aka APA.
Their Tag Team became quite famous during the time of Attitude era but during the Transition Era they split up from their tag team before teaming up again in SmackDown in 2003. In 2004 WWE came out with something big for Bradshaw renaming him as JBL and giving him a million dollar man gimmick.
At the Great American Bash pay per view event of 2004, he defeated Eddie Guerrero to win his first and only WWE Championship. He kept on retaining the Championship for almost a year before finally dropping the Championship at WrestleMania 21 to John Cena.
It was the first ever WWE championship win for John Cena. After dropping the title he could never win WWE World Championship ever again, but he won other Championship. In 2020 WWE inducted him into the class of Hall of Fame.
John Bradshaw Layfield aka JBL who is also a former one time WWE World Champion recently spoke on a recent edition of Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw where he talked about his agent role in WWE and he revealed that he did not like his agent role in WWE at all. He said;
“I tried it for a few months and I didn’t really enjoy it. You try to explain things in the best way that you feel is in the interest of the performers, and they have so many different ideas. The ones that I dealt with, some of them were awesome.
“I think who was awesome was Roman Reigns. He got everything. That was before he main-evented all those WrestleManias. I thought, ‘This guy is really smart.’ Some of them, you would tell them something, and they would go running and try to change it. Guys, just tell me if you don’t like it. I’m not going to take it personally.”
