JBL is a veteran in the pro wrestling world who eventually became one of the biggest heels in WWE. He also developed reputation for being a bully. Bradshaw is an expert at getting heat, and he was given props for the same recently.

Back in October, Baron Corbin made his return to WWE television as he was introduced by JBL. The two have been a pair ever since, and the two are generating a ton of heat from fans.

While speaking on Smack Talk, Dutch Mantell explained how JBL was a heat magnet, and he gave him huge props for the same. JBL is able to grab that negative attention whether he’s in a bar or a pro wrestling ring.

I think Bradshaw and Corbin will have massive heat because they were picking and because Bradshaw is great at interviews. And he projects that “Ohh, I’m better than you, and I’m this that, the other.” He’s walking heat is what he is. He can walk into a room and get heat just looking at him, and you don’t even have to know him.


So, if you were sitting in a bar just for example, and all of a sudden, Bradshaw walks in, stands there, and just looks around the room. Well, he’s going to get your attention. You’re thinking, most people come into a room and walk up to the bar or know somebody. But if he just walked in and stood there and looked around like he’s surveying the crowd, about half that crowd would say, “What the hell is he looking for?” And he’s got their attention right off. And then if he started talking, yeah, he’d have everybody’s attention.”

We will have to wait and see whether Baron Corbin will flourish under JBL’s leadership or not. Fans are certainly interested so far. If anything, it is certainly getting a lot of attention on WWE programming.
