JBL on the conversation with Vince McMahon about John Cena

JBL talked about the match against John Cena in which he was defeated. JBL recalled a conversation with Vince McMahon where they discussed Cena and his talent. “You know Cena from day one, you know, it’s a different match going from eight minutes to 30 minutes.

Thirty minutes is tough. You gotta take your own role and some people can’t ever make that transition. I think he may have done longer matches with Kurt Angle first, who’s one of the greatest of all time, but if not, then I was the second guy to take Cena for 30 minutes.

He was comfortable from day one. I remember Vince asking me, he goes, ‘how is he?’ I said, ‘that kid is freaking awesome.’ I mean he’s that good. And he was from the get-go. He got into deep water and a lot of people just drowned”.

Eddie Guerrero

A few months ago, in an interview with METRO UK, JBL talked about the relationship he had with Eddie Guerrero. “Eddie and I, we would’ve traveled together, probably, if we hadn’t been competitors against each other,” JBL said.

“Several times we’d go out to dinner, I was going through some issues in my life at the time – nobody knew it, I’m not one to tell people about that. Eddie came up to me, ‘Hey, something’s bothering you.

I want to talk to you.’ I thought that was really cool, that was really observant of Eddie, and he did that to everybody. He was a very unique person”.
“I think it’s rare in life,” JBL said. “Not many people care that much about the world that they’re observing other people and other people’s behaviors.

You’re wrapped up in your own stuff, you’re wrapped up in your own travel, you’re wrapped up in your own world”.
