JBL Blogs on Working With Eddie Guerrero, Recalls The Frog Splash From The Top of The Cage in Providence

Nick Paglino

JBLJBL has posted a new blog over on his Facebook page, recalling some memories of working with Eddie Guerrero, and one in particular from Providence, as WWE is taping Smackdown tonight in the same location. Below is a blog excerpt:

I've written alot about the Frog Splash by Eddie Guerrero on me from the top of the cage. However, since it happened in Providence and we are in the same building tonight, I put the video up on my site at www.LayfieldReport.com Hope you enjoy and hope you sign up for newsletter!

The idea was for Eddie to do something great, we both agreed this was a perfect ending. Eddie had broken his arm in his debut with WWE on a frog splash so he had worked with his brother Hector to clasp his hands and prevent that from happening again (the clasping of hands takes the pressure off the arms upon impact). This was at least twice as high as a normal frog splash. This was a dangerous move (same as Snuka did the dangerous move so many years before onto Don Muraco).

Eddie practiced the move earlier in the day and missed the mark by several feet-now remember, I am the one that will be laying there. This would have had Eddie landing on me in a way that one of us (probably me) would have been badly hurt.
