JBL on real-life fight between Eddie Guerrero and Kurt Angle in WWE
During the interview when JBL was asked about his favorite moment involving Kurt Angle, he immediately referred to this fight between Angle and late WWE Superstar, Eddie Guerrero.
JBL revealed that it was the 'one of the funniest things' that he had ever seen in WWE before he went on to narrate the incident from his perspective. Here's what he had to say:
"The fight with Eddie Guerrero. When Kurt Angle and Eddie Guerrero got into a fight, it was one of the funniest things that I had ever seen. They came back from a match, and they got into a fight. I was sitting by Eddie in the dressing room; it was just Eddie and me. I knew there was a fight because you could always tell when there's a fight going on. And for something that happened in the ring, they got into the fight in the gorilla."
JBL further talked about this fight in the WWE locker room and went on to say:
"They fought all over the place and then they were separated. Eddie was seated beside me and I realised that there's been a fight. Eddie had tried to double-leg him (Kurt Angle) at the Gorrila. Eddie is a tough guy. But there's eight billion people on the planet and Angle was the best out of all of them. It wasn't just good. It was great. So, this was the one thing that you can't do to Kurt Angle. Punch him, hit him with a bat, but don't leg him. He is the best wrestler in the world."
"So, I am sitting there looking at Eddie and he is screaming and I said, 'Why would you leg a gold medalist?' And he didn't even look at me and said, 'Because I am stupid!' I just laughed."
This was one of the unforgettable backstage altercations that still continues to amuse the WWE fans even after several years. JBL chose to see the funny side of things and he shared the same with the viewers today.
