A member of the WWE family since 1995, the urban legends indicate that JBL has been a member of the underground WWE society for more than a decade. He worked as a tag wrestler to start off his career but would later make a mysterious upper-card run as the company’s Champion. Today, he isn’t doing too shabby either serving as the WWE’s color commentator for SmackDown Live.
According to conspiracy theories, JBL was planted by the WWE higher ups to serve as an enforcer behind the scenes, weeding the weak out of the company.
As a thank you, the higher ups gave JBL the biggest push of his entire career in 2004 by giving him the WWE Championship. The exposure also helped the veteran to gain notoriety with the likes of CNN and other news media outlets. At the age of 50, JBL is still very much a part of the company and continues to grow as a personality with his own show on the WWE Network, Legends With JBL.
