From WON:

Layfield going off on Ranallo on the WWE Network show “Bring It To The Table,” which was the final catalyst for what happened, while positioned and purported to be an unscripted show, that’s not exactly the case. The show isn’t exactly scripted, but the topics, the tone, the parameters and where to go and not to go are all discussed in advance.

It is Chris Chambers who puts together the show and Kevin Dunn is the person responsible for the show. Because of that, Layfield’s attack on Ranallo was not something done off the cuff or out of the blue. Chambers had to know about it and Dunn had to know about. Vince McMahon may not have known about it, but after it became an issue, he would have known about it and the show was re-aired without the segment being edited off.

Whether or not it was Layfield’s idea to do it, what they could and couldn’t do was up to Chambers. The insults, at least the tone or degree of them, had to have been approved in advance.
Its possible Dunn was in on it.

Just because they had to be approved does not mean they were and does not mean JBL did not freestyle. Just saying.

There is no threat in JBL comment, Mauro just be over sensitive.
Cause you know everything that happens backstage and JBL, being known for his nice attitude towards his colleagues, didn't make any mean remarks towards Mauro off cameras huh.

Chances are, he ordered it.Allegedly, Back in the days JBL was an enforcer when someone needed "disciplining", but management couldn´t openly do anything. That´s where half of his bullying come from, only following orders.
Dunn is a major reason why WWE is such a rotten environment. Everytime I see him or hear something about him I can only think of this image

So what? They were bullying and insulting Byron the whole Ride Along episode as well. I don't see him crying about it.

Man up and get the fuck over yourself.
Is Byron suffering from a well known mental illness? That JBL had knowledge of?

I agree, the video games playing "stars" of this current era seem like mega pussies. Not defending bullying in anyway, but even a bit of insult appears to trigger this people into crybabies. Its appalling to see what has become of this business. Imagine these pussies in the army, can you really trust them to stay in the front lines and defend the nation?

Nash and others share the same opinion....




Anderson: "I read something where he told Justin Roberts to go kill himself, everyday. He would say stuff like that, but the minute somebody would fire back at him, or just no-sell it, [they'll] be fine. He wouldn't keep hammering... I'm not saying that his way is right, but people are really, really sensitive nowadays for that reason."

Daivari: "Whenever I hear about John being a bully to whoever, and the specific names that come out, it's because the person he was quote-unquote bullying was trying so hard to get over with him. Like, dude, not everybody is gonna like you. Maybe [John] doesn't like you, you don't have to prove a point and defend [yourself]. If he says you're a dork and he hates you, you don't have to prove to him that you're not a dork and he should like you. Just let it go."

Anderson shares a time where both Edge and John Morrison stood up to JBL:

"Paul Heyman told me this story about how JBL was needling Edge on a bus, overseas. Edge was pretty new to the company, and [JBL kept needling him]. JBL had a beer in his hand, Edge just stood up, and swatted the beer out of his hand, and said 'Let's go right now. I'm sick of it.' From that point on, JBL said 'Oh calm down, sweetheart.' Everything was smoothed over, and he didn't mess with him again.

"[John Morrison] stood up to him one night. JBL didn't like the way him and Miz had sold at the end of their match. They hadn't celebrated enough. [JBL was getting on him], and Johnny basically just snapped on him, and told him to mind his own business. They almost went at it. And that was the end of it. I think John just likes to the guys to be tough."


Daivari shares a story when he stood up to JBL:

"John came [backstage] and just picked me as his target. A bunch of people weren't watching [his main event match from backstage], and he goes, 'Shawn Daivari doesn't need to watch the main event! Shawn Daivari knows everything about everything in wrestling! Shawn doesn't have to watch the main event! He's good, he's got it!' And I said, 'No. You've been doing the same match 17 nights in a row. I can call every single move you did, I can tell you exactly what happened, I can tell you what heat you did to the crowd to get them involved, I've seen it! No, I don't need to watch it tonight! JBL kinda gave me a smile and went away.'"
