Vince McMahon is a very interesting person, and he has his limits about who he is willing to put through any kind of physicality on television. Jerry Lawler is on that list after he suffered a cardiac arrest on air. Apparently, JBL isn’t to be touched either.
During a recent episode of the ARN podcast, The Enforcer revealed that Bradshaw isn’t to be touched on WWE television. He came back form an injury and placed on commentary. That was the end of him taking any bumps.
“It did and believe it or not, one of the names on the list was JBL. I think he came back from an injury at some point and was doing commentary. He was on that list. The announcers were on that list. It was a very real list. I can’t remember all that was on it.”
It makes sense that Vince McMahon doesn’t want to take any risks with people who have preexisting conditions. That is the reason why Paige will likely never be cleared to compete again, even though there’s a chance she might pass a doctor’s physical after so much recovery time.
