After 'Mania, Bradshaw separated from Simmons and came out with a completely new gimmick. The tough brawler was now a genius millionaire. He came out to the ring in a limousine, wore expensive clothes, and had an arrogant smirk on his face.
JBL was pushed to the Moon in 2004, as he won the WWE Title at The Great American Bash from Eddie Guerrero. He went on to successfully defend the title against the likes of Booker T, The Undertaker, and The Big Show.
