December 13, 2013

December 10, 2013
Randy Orton

Many within WWE are expecting Randy Orton to beat John Cena to capture both belts at the TLC pay per view. The belief is that management will allow Cena to lose the match since it can be done without a pin fall or submission.

The top candidates to work the kickoff match at the TLC pay per view right now are Xavier Woods, R Truth, Brodus Clay and Tensai. There's also a chance that WWE could opt to do a singles match between Woods and Clay as well.

Ron Simmons
"There is a lot of truth to that, absolutely. There were guys that came there from other organizations that perhaps they thought they should just skip everybody else and skip right to the top and have things right away the way they wanted. I mean, hey, there are rules and things that you have to abide by as far as this business goes. and you have to respect those. But, when you don't respect those, then hey, we have got a problem. So, yes, we had a lot of guys who came in with that attitude, and John and I would have to be called upon to let them know 'hey, that is not how it works here'." - Ron Simmons on how he and JBL handled backstage politics in WWE

JBL
When word spread earlier this week that JBL was the one behind the Twitter account that mocks Vince McMahon, it bothered the former WWE heavyweight champion enough that he felt compelled to release a statement of denial. It has even gotten to the point where JBL has now started blocking fans on Twitter who are harassing him about it.
March 23, 2014
Vince McMahon
Yesterday, speculations arose that JBL was the man that was behind a Twitter account which frequently mocked Vince McMahon with backstage information that only people within the company would be aware of. The WWE commentator took to Facebook to post a long message, denying that he is involved in such a thing. Some still think it may be JBL.

JBL
For the longest time, people backstage in WWE have been trying to figure out who was behind a Vince McMahon parody account on Twitter, as a lot of the stuff being said was insider information. Speculations have arisen that JBL might be the culprit. If proven to be true, there could be massive backstage heat between the two, as McMahon is said to hate the account.
March 19, 2014
Vince McMahon
Even though they both participated in the public bashing of Jim Ross on Monday Night Raw, there is said to be no backstage heat towards JBL and Jerry Lawler because everyone is aware that they were only following orders from a vengeful Vince McMahon. Both JBL and Lawler really enjoy their jobs, so it made sense for them to do what McMahon demanded.
March 15, 2014
Jerry Lawler
The relationship between Jim Ross and Vince McMahon has gotten worse. A lot of fans noticed recently that JBL and Jerry Lawler participated in a segment that bashed Ross. That was done because McMahon was upset with Ross for telling an embarrassing story about him that ended up being covered by TMZ. The jabs may continue in the coming weeks, depending on how McMahon feels.
March 14, 2014
CM Punk
"I don't know any facts on CM Punk. I had the honor of wrestling Punk in his first main events in WWE, including a cage match in Madison Square Garden. I have always enjoyed Punk and being around him. I certainly wish him the best. Hope he comes back, but whatever happens, my best to him." - JBL discussing the backstage heat situation involving CM Punk
March 8, 2014
Jerry Lawler
On Monday Night Raw, the commentators were instructed to take a few verbal jabs at Jim Ross. Rather than being upset at his former cohorts, Ross took to Twitter to tell fans to ease up on JBL, Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler. He stated that they were simply doing their jobs and saying what they were told to say. The belief is that the orders came from Vince McMahon.
March 4, 2014
Michael Cole
The friendship and business relationship between JBL and Michael Cole continues to grow, as the WWE commentators are now scheduled to compete in a fishing competition. On July 4, in Bermuda, where JBL has a residence, the two of them will be contestants in the world marlin championship. A television deal is being rumored for the event as well.
February 21, 2014
Michael Cole
While fans across the country are trying to voice their opinions on the situation, JBL, Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler find it annoying. The commentating trio were heard on Monday Night Raw being agitated with a group of fans that were trying to get the chants going. They were basically telling those people to go away.
February 12, 2014
Chavo Guerrero
Over the weekend, several wrestlers, including Chris Jericho, Howar Finkel, Jim Ross, MVP, Diamond Dallas Page, Mason Ryan, Chavo Guerrero, Michelle McCool, Vickie Guerrero, JBL and others, noted the passing of Frank Bullock, a WWE employee who did audio for the company. He had been battling cancer before his death.

February 9, 2014
Michael Cole
As part of his weight loss challenge with Michael Cole, JBL needs to lose another two pounds by Sunday, or else he has to pay a fine by donating money to charity. The former WWE champion has lost 17 pounds thus far, and he needs to lose another 37 pounds before climbing another mountain.
February 7, 2014
JBL

Scott Armstrong, former WWE referee and the older brother of Road Dogg, provided some laughs today on Twitter when he posted this Tweet to mock referee and good friend Charles Robinson. It even got a rise out of JBL, who quickly retweeted the message on his own account.

Xavier Woods

Some last minute replacements were added to Royal Rumble 2014.
