Joey Styles Lays Out JBL With Punch During Overseas Tour

Bill Behrens


PWINSIDER.COM is reporting that on the recent WWE tour of Iraq, WWE.com writer and former announcer, Joey Styles was the object of repeated harassment by JBL (John Layfield) with a lot of condescending comments and actions, including a report of JBL spilling a drink on Styles on purpose.

JBL has a long history of these type of harassments. On another overseas tour he harassed Smackdown’s Palmer Cannon (Brian Black)(Brian Mailhot) rsulting in Cannon flying himself home from the tour.

After several days of this Styles finally went after JBL and wrestlers held them apart, but JBL & Styles broke free and Styles nailed JBL in the eye, busting him open and blackening it. It was reported that JBL had been drinking.

Rumors that JBL screamed “Oh My God” while clutching his injured eye were likely just made up by me.

I’m not sure why WWE management puts up with these harassments, but history has shown that that it has and likely will this time too.
