-- JBL said in his latest blog
on WWE Universe that he won't be facing The Undertaker
at WrestleMania 25 after losing to Shawn Michaels
on Raw, but he has other plans.
still believe I am destined to do something great
at Mania so tune in Monday Night and you will
see my plan start to unfold," JBL said.
On the tragic Verne Gagne story that is being
investigated as a homicide, JBL said: Really sad
to hear about the events regarding Mr. Gagne.
I really wish him, the other family, and his family
the best in the tragedy."
One of the big stories on Wall Street last week
was his wife, renown investment analyst Meredith
Whitney, starting her own firm specializing in
Investment Banking. JBL is licensed to work in
that area, so he will be helping Meredith advance
her career in the financial industry.
made the decision following the government's recent
intervention in the financial market and JBL believes
they can compete against other Wall Street firms
am now working for my wife-didn't think that would
happen, but I am happy," he said.
blog on WWE Universe.
might just be the world's greatest active pro
wrestler blogger! The way Layfield has diversified
and has created numerous revenue streams and news
worthy elements in the process is ultra impressive.
If being a total package in the pro wresting industry
is part of the key, like Hogan and The Rock were
able to do so successfully, JBL is a champion
all the way. I witnessed Layfield wrestling in
Germany approximately 15 years ago and he worked
his ass off. It goes not surprise me to see him
going so well. His going on record regarding 'The
Wrestler' were gutsy and showed insight that the
wrestling business seldom sees. It appears that
Layfield's goal to not end up broke like 'The
Wrestler' and helping fuel his goals. I believe
that Layfield is showing strong leadership in
the professional wrestling business for taking
on what he has, and it may inspire other wrestlers
to diversify and think outside the square. Layfield's
darn hard work and staying power, combined with
his improved mic work has made him stand out from
the pack which is part of the secret in the wrestling
business. There may be a spot very close to the
likes of Roddy Piper, Chris Jericho and The Funks.
Layfield in a clique or tag team situation with
Triple H might work, with them both being power
players that WWE would be much worse off without,
and I think the fans and WWE top brass know this.
It appears he also has a great career ahead of
him as a writer should Layfield do down that path,
and in the current times I think one might do
well to listen to his firms financial advise as
apposed to some of the others on Wall Street.
JBL used to be average, but these days he's a
champion. The real deal and one major player for
2009, both in the WWE and in his other endeavours.
