• WWE Hall Of Famer Set To Appear On Next Several RAWs
Old School WWF/WWE Legend JBL (fka Bradshaw) last appeared on a September 2022 episode of SmackDown, where he pulled over in his famous limousine and basically teased adopting sort of a manager type role for Happy Corbin (Baron Corbin), who was rumored to go through yet another character change in the process.
PWInsider is reporting that there are plans for the 2020 WWE Hall of Famer to be seen on the next few episodes of Monday Night RAW, thus suggesting that Corbin will also jump ship from SmackDown to the RAW brand, probably starting as soon as tonight.
Here’s what they wrote:
“There was talk at SmackDown on Friday night that WWE Hall of Famer JBL would be at the next several RAWs in some capacity.”
John Layfield officially joined the World Wrestling Federation in January 1996 as Justin ‘Hawk’ Bradshaw and wrestled for them until April 2009.
During his WWF/WWE career, he had several character changes, becoming Blackjack Bradshaw & teaming with Blackjack Windham (Barry Windham) as The New Black Jacks (1997-1998), going solo by just ‘Bradshaw’ (1998) and teaming with Faarooq (Ron Simmons) as the Acolytes, and later the Acolytes Protection Agency (APA) from 1998 until 2004.
As soon as the APA split up in the spring of 2004, John appeared as JBL, a gimmick similar to The Million Dollar Man, based on his real-life persona, who made millions of dollars from the stock exchange years earlier.
