• “JBL just tortured me the whole trip” – Former WWE Wrestler On JBL Bullying Him During Tribute To The Troops
Former WWE wrestler Chris Masters recently spoke to Hannibal TV, where he recalled WWE Hall Of Fame 2020 inductee, JBL, bullying him during WWE’s Tribute To The Troops tour in Afghanistan.
Below is what he said:
“Oh yeah, big time. And coincidentally we were talking about the Tribute To The Troops show. My first year going there we went to Afghanistan and they put us into different groups, you know, like whoever they decide is going on the group goes and then the whole group is separated into three or four different groups.
So in my group, I had Mick Foley, Trish Stratus, Carlito, JBL and Fit Finlay was with us. JBL just tortured me the whole trip. He really just bullied me and trash-talked me and was really just all up in my head.
Yeah, it was difficult. It was difficult because again I’m 20 years old at this point and I’m getting angry with him and I want to do something. But also, when is the right point to do something? You know what I mean? He’s a veteran. He’s been with the company, at that point I think for like a decade.”

• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 73rd birthday of Old School WWF Legend Nikolai Volkoff (Real name: Josip Peruzovic).
Volkoff wrestled for the World Wide Wrestling Federation, later the World Wrestling Federation during the 70s, 80s & 90s, with winning the WWF World Tag Team titles with The Iron Sheik at the first ever WrestleMania event by defeating the U.S. Express being his biggest accomplishment.
After Sheik was suspended in 1987, Boris Zhukov became Volkoff’s new Tag Team Partner and together they were known as ‘The Bolsheviks’, a team that lasted from 1987 till Nikolai turned babyface in 1990.
In 2005, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by legendary announcer “Good Ol’ J.R.” Jim Ross.
