On a recent episode of Something To Wrestle, Bruce Prichard spoke on the incident that took place at WWE One Night Stand that saw JBL shoot on The Blue Meanie and leave him with facial injuries. Here’s what he had to say:
Didn’t even notice it, frankly. Heard about it afterwards. According to John, he had been hit in the back of the head, turned around, there was Meanie, thought Meanie hit him in the back of the head, and proceeded to throw live rounds at Meanie. Wasn’t proud of it, wasn’t happy with it, and that night, everybody upset, tempers flaring, and not a good night, but after that, they got together and shit, I think they’re friends now.
In the middle, I think it’s one of those situations where tensions were high and everything gets escalated out of control. That shit happens in physical sport. I don’t think John was right in it. It ain’t ballet. Shit happens. Sometimes unfortunate things happen. The important thing is that once everybody got back together, cooler heads prevailing. It was a misunderstanding and you move on.
