• WWE Hall Of Famer Reveals How Owen Hart Stopped Him From Beating Up JBL

During a recent edition of the Jim Ross Report, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry recalled a story where he wanted to beat up JBL back during the WWF days.

Below is what Henry said:

“I was having a disagreement with a wrestler that we both know and love and I wanted to fight. And I think I told you (Jim Ross) that I wanted to fight him. I didn’t want to get fired. I was like, ‘I’m going to beat him up and don’t fire me.’ And you were like, ‘well, if you beat him up, I will have to fine you and I may have to fire you.’ And I’m like, ‘well, sh*t. I can’t win!’

Owen [Hart] came up to me and said, ‘listen, don’t get mad. You get very entertaining when you get angry. I like to see you angry too as long as you aren’t angry at me.’

I realized I was putting a show on and me fighting somebody that’s my peer would not be good. It wasn’t going to look good anyway. And this guy, by the way, was the artist formerly known as Justin ‘Hawk’ Bradshaw and I just wanted to whoop him and Owen said, ‘don’t do it.’

He said, ‘the next time you see John by himself, just walk up to him and say, ‘John, I don’t appreciate you picking on me and I wish you would stop.’ And if he says he won’t stop, then you just tell him, ‘well, the next time that I see you by yourself like this, nobody’s around, I’m not going to be screaming and yelling. I’m just going to take the opportunity to let you know that I don’t particularly like it and it might not be with words.”

He taught me how to communicate and I love that dude. He was my brother because he helped me keep my job, one. He taught me how to relate to people in the locker room and nobody got hurt. That’s a lost art and there needs to be more Owen Harts in the locker room.”
