• Val Venis Reveals Who The Biggest Locker Room Bully Was During The Attitude Era
WWF Attitude Era Veteran Val Venis was recently interviewed on the ‘Wrestling Shoot Interviews’ channel and was asked who the biggest locker room bully was back in the day.
The answer comes as no surprise to anyone, as it’s pretty common knowledge that Bradshaw (now known as JBL) used to be a big bully backstage during the Attitude Era.
Here’s what Val Venis said:
“JBL. I always considered JBL to be a walking home entertainment center. There were times, because he never had a filter, things that would come out of his mouth were incredible. I don’t know how he didn’t get fired for some of the things that would come out of his mouth.
But it was funny. There were times where you could tell it was one of those days that JBL was spot on. He’s in that mood. He’s in that mode. And I would literally get my black coffee and just follow him around the arena, just tag along and just follow him around to see what he’s gonna say next.”
Val Venis wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation (later WWE) for 10 years from 1998 until 2008 and was eventually fired in January 2009.
John Layfield (JBL) was also on the WWF/WWE roster for pretty much all those years.
