During WWE’s Ruthless Aggression Era, Kurt Angle, Eddie Guerrero and JBL were three renowned Superstars in the company. All three Superstars tasted the WWE Gold at the time and JBL’s title reign lasted 280 days. Guerrero passed away in November 2005, at the age of 38, in his hotel room. Kurt competed for Impact Wrestling, and returned to WWE several years later. JBL is set to be inducted into the 2020 WWE Hall of Fame.
Recently, JBL took to Twitter and shared an interesting story from his stint in WWE years ago. The story featured a backstage fight between Eddie Guerrero and Kurt Angle. Former WWE Superstar explained that both Superstars returned backstage one night, after a match, and were visibly heated. He also said that he could hear the fight, and was the only person in the locker room at the time. After John Lairinaitis separated the two, Eddie sat with JBL and admitted that it’s stupid of him to get into a fight with Angle.
“As they come back down the hall, I can hear this whole fight going on, and I’m the only one in the dressing room, and as they get back to the dressing room door, Eddie is on this side of the door, Kurt is on the other side of the door, John Laurinaitis, the head of talent relations, shuts the door and leaves Eddie on this side of the door with only me in this big dressing room.”
“And Eddie comes back, doesn’t even look at me, sits right beside me and he’s staring at the door, and he’s breathing so loud you can hear him breath. And I look at him and he’s still looking at the door, and I said ‘Eddie why would you leg dive a gold medalist?’ Eddie says, ‘Cause that’s stupid!”
