• JBL Reveals How Much Money He Made From Brawl For All
On a recent episode of his own ‘Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw’ podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer JBL talked about the infamous ‘Brawl For All’ tournament that aired over several weeks on RAW IS WAR in 1998.
Here’s what JBL said:
“I loved The Brawl for All. I had fun in it. I won 3 fights. I got my first house because of The Brawl for All. I was able, in Athens, TX, to buy a house for $84,600 I think it was. My Brawl for All winnings were $40,000.
I was lucky, I think, that Bart knocked me out because Butterbean, we realized at that point the difference between professional fighters and just good, tough fighters.
Bart Gunn, great guy, and a really tough guy knocking out all the talent. It’s just the difference is when he stepped up to a trained professional.”
The Brawl For All tournament was featured on a season 2 episode of VICE’s Dark Side of the Ring last year.
