Gerald Brisco Disputes JBL’s Reputation As A Bully


Gerald Brisco has defended his fellow WWE Hall Of Famer JBL from accusations that he is a bully and says a more kind-hearted man you’d be hard pushed to find.

JBL built a stellar career in WWE, going from tag team specialist to hated WWE Champion seemingly overnight in the mid-2000s. Over the years the Texan has garnered a reputation through run-ins with the likes of Public Enemy and even former Four Horseman, Tully Blanchard.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Gerald Brisco discussed his co-host on Stories With Brisco And Bradshaw and says there is a whole other side to JBL:

“JBL is one of those entertaining guys. John kind of gets categorized into this category of being a bit of a bully and all that. But he’s one of the most kind-hearted guys that you can ever come across.”

“The stuff that he did for rugby, he moved over to the island of Bermuda. He started a rugby league there and he actually had guys who started from when they were kids and now these guys are playing division one college rugby.”

“Now he’s gone into Memphis with the inner-city kids there and he does fundraising. He bought over 500 computers last year for these inner-city kids when everybody had to do this virtual learning. Not all these kids had access to computers and everything.”

“This club that he formed, he made sure through his fundraising ability that everybody had a computer. Everybody was on an equal basis. Not only did they have a computer, but they had people there that could instruct them on how to use it. John is just a wonderful person. We are both positive people, once you get to know John and know his kind heart.”

Gerald Brisco recently discussed his version of events that transpired during the infamous Montreal Screwjob, including if he threatened to fire referee Earl Hebner if he didn’t go through with the plan.
