JBL responds to fan backlash after Raw
Former WWE Superstar and current commentator John Bradshaw Layfield had to explain the comments that he made live on Raw while calling a match between Ryback and Luke Harper. When Harper was on the top rope, JBL said that he looked like a “zombie Eddie Guerrero.” That comment didn’t go down well with a lot of fans as they felt that he had disrespected the late WWE legend who enjoyed a healthy rivalry with him a few years back.
The Twitter backlash forced him to take to his Facebook page to clear the controversy. This is what he posted:
“The spot with Luke Harper I saw some Twitter comments over. I had just mentioned Walking Dead show and Luke does the ‘Eddie’ spot over the top rope, my comment (since I had mentioned Rick Grimes before toward Luke) was ‘it looks like a zombie Eddie Guerrero’. This was a WALKING DEAD reference toward Luke-who I have said before looks like a ‘walker’.
I would NEVER insult my friend Eddie, for those who took it wrong-sorry about that, but it is what it is.”
