In an interview with Alex Marvez, The Blue Meanie reportedly confirmed that he's at least considering legal action over the recent incident with JBL.
Meanie, who noted that the pair actually shook hands before the event, was completely shocked by the attack.
"I was thrown off guard," Meanie said. "I turned around and saw a shot coming right to my face."
The wrestler also commented on the incident that transpired backstage:
"People were between us and he started yelling about how I had talked bad about him on the Internet. I was like, 'It's a work...Look at him. The guy is 6-7, and 300-something pounds. He's a little more imposing than me."
Meanie does admit to offering unflattering opinions about JBL on the Internet; he also spoke against the WWE wrestler in a deposition during the Silverman case.
Marvez, of the Scripps Howard News Service, noted that WWE refused to allow JBL to comment; unless the reporter agreed to let WWE post audio on its website.
