• WWE Hall Of Famer Recalls JBL Getting Beat Up Backstage In WWE & Everybody Being Happy
During a recent interview with Boston Wrestling, WWE Hall of Famer Tony Atlas talked about never liking former WWE Champion JBL and JBL having a habit of belittling people.
Below is what Tony said:
“One of the worst people didn’t like, if I had half a chance I would have whooped his a$$ going and coming and that is Bradshaw. What a prick, cause he’s a prick a first-f***ing class prick. The worst individual anybody would ever want to meet in their life.
He would take guys who were not on his standard and he would always try and put people down. He’s the type of guy who likes to belittle people, you know? One time he got his a$$ whooped by an office personnel. Joey Styles beat his butt.
I just watched the way he acted around other people. He always thought that he was better than all the guys in the dressing room. He’s very arrogant and sarcastic.
He’s not a likeable person if you worked the territory with him. That’s why when he got beat up by Joey Styles that everybody loved that. Everybody was cheering about it. I was hearing about it before the fight was over people was texting me.
They said, ‘He got what was coming to him.’ He just liked to belittle people, it’s his nature. He’s a nasty person, he can be very nasty. There’s nobody that I knew who liked him while I was there. He was not liked by anybody.
If he was sitting here right now, I’d tell him that he’s a prick. I’d tell him now because I can’t get fired. I put up with his sh*t while I was there but… there was a lot of times I just wanted to get up and punch him in the face. I mean just about every time he came into the dressing room I’d go, ‘Oh sh*t here he comes’.
He would make stuff like during my drug days, he would bring it up everytime he saw me. ‘Tony like Hoover, Hoover’ he would always bring up cocaine, always bring up sh*t like that.
I was trying to keep that under wraps because my job was to teach all the young kids like Sheamus, all the young kids who came in. Vince said, ‘Talk to them Tony, tell them where you made your mistake, so they don’t make the same mistakes.’
So that was primarily my job was to tell other kids and everytime I try to help some young kid, here comes Bradshaw putting me down in front of them.”
So he puts me down in front of kids, the kid would start laughing at you so now all the seriousness where maybe you could have reached this young man and guide him in the right direction, Bradshaw would just come in and destroy all that saying, ‘Ah you listening to that Tony, he’s all burnted out he’s all f***ing coked out.’
He was a nasty son of a gun. I got no respect for him.”
