JBL Talks The Importance of “Part-Timers”

(Goldberg on the set of NBC's Apprentice)

On this week’s episode of Bring it to the table, WWE Legend and SMACKDOWN color commentator John Bradshaw Layfield shined light to an array of topics that have been on the minds of many WWE fans over the last couple of years. JBL’s thoughts ranged from Roman Reigns being considered a “Rockstar” to the reasoning as to why part-timers continue to play an integral part in the WWE.

Here are the highlights from this weeks episode which you can catch down below:

JBL on hoping Roman Reigns continues to get mixed reactions:

“I hope so because John Cena is an absolute rockstar. He’s perhaps the greatest draw in the history of our business and Roman Reigns is exactly the same. I mean, he’s a rockstar. You tell people that and they say, ‘no, no, no, people are standing up because they want to boo him.’ They’re standing up. So if you ask those people who say they’re standing up to boo Roman Reigns because ‘we don’t like him’, ‘okay, would you pay to see Roman Reigns get beat?’ ‘Oh, absolutely! I’d love to see him get beat.’ He’s doing his job because people pay to see him.”

JBL on the importance of part-timers:

“People complain about a 50 year old guy coming back. That didn’t have to happen during The Attitude Era when we had ‘Stone Cold’ [Steve Austin], and The Rock, and The Undertaker, and that incredible roster, maybe one of the greatest of all time, you didn’t need anybody to draw ratings. Now, we’re bringing some of these guys back. We have great stars, but Goldberg still draws and until he doesn’t draw and there [are] people to supplant him, he will always be welcome in WWE.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
