JBL Blogs on Returning to RAW & Preparing for Climbs

– Former WWE Champion John Bradshaw Layfield has posted a new Facebook blog about returning to RAW and his Seven Summits campaign. Here is part of what JBL wrote:

“Getting ready to go to Africa to climb Kilimanjaro to raise money for the kids I work with every week in Bermuda. Had a blast at WWE, and very grateful for nice feedback. Don’t know the future-I was asked to fill in for King and my only hope is that he gets better.

My only plans now are to go to Africa and climb to the top of Kilimanjaro, I leave Friday. When I return we will be starting up our program for this year in Bermuda-so have a very busy fall ahead of me.

The dangerous mountain I have ahead of me is in January when I attempt to climb Aconcagua in South America (they call it ‘Mt Death’).

I feel good about Kilimanjaro, unless I get altitude sickness or have an accident I should make it. I am in as good of shape as I can be, so I’m very excited to start climbing.

Was great to be around WWE again. Felt like I had returned home-was really enjoyable. I also enjoyed the art of trying to put these guys over on commentary. I was a lot more rusty than what I thought but was fun being out there.”

    I genuinely wish Jerry Lawler all the best and hope he returns to full health soon… But I gotta confess I found RAW infinitely more watchable with JBL on commentary this week. He was pure class. WWE should offer him whatever he damn well wants to be a permanent fixture on the announce team.
