On the latest “Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw” podcast, JBL talked about a wide range of topics, including a backstage fight between Kurt Angle and Eddie Guerrero.
It started in the gorilla position at a WWE show before leading out and loud enough to get everyone’s attention.
“You know a fight’s going on in the locker room … you can tell by the noise, and this was a fight,” JBL said. “So finally, [John] Laurinaitis had gotten between Eddie and Kurt. Kurt was outside the dressing room, Eddie was inside it, I was dressing right by Eddie. Laurinaitis shut the door, so that separated Kurt and Eddie.” What JBL recalled next caused himself, Brisco, and podcast guest Doug Basham, who was also in the arena for the fight, to crack up laughing.
“Eddie comes back and sits down, and I could tell by the noise that’s going on that … Eddie had tried to leg dive [him],” JBL continued. “So I’m sitting there looking at Eddie, and he’s not looking at me at all. He’s looking at the door, just mad as mad as he can be, breathing so loud you can hear him breathe. … Finally I said ‘Why would you leg dive a Gold Medalist?’ And without looking at me, he goes ‘Cause I’m stupid!’ That was great. Then he finally started laughing.”
