JBL reveals WWE is not upset with the remarks
The former WWE Champion believes that WWE has not expressed displeasure over the controversial comments.He gave his thoughts on the incident as he said:
“She [Ronda Rousey] was the hottest thing about six months ago with all that tension she got on herself. I don’t know if she did that on purpose or not, where she called wrestling fake. But she sure got a lot of heat off of it.”
“I mean, if she didn’t [do it on purpose], she hit a goldmine. If she did [do it on purpose], she’s really smart. And she may be, I don’t know her. I don’t know either way. People say good things about her in the WWE that I’ve talked to.”
The WWE legend is not certain whether Rousey actually wanted to mean the words that she said or it was done just to get backlash from the fans. He said:
“The thing with Ronda is, you never know what she is saying. Is she attacking the business, really, or is she attacking the business because she knows that’s what lights up the fans that love the business, that are gonna wanna see you?”
JBL was set to be inducted in this year’s class of WWE Hall of Fame but the induction ceremony has been postponed in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic.
