The clothesline from hell was an amazing finisher and JBL is criminally underrated during his time as champion.

Frequently, workrate hounds at places like WrestlingForum or Reddit's Squared Circle. You know, the types that discount character and mic work. That think people like Edge and Big Show were mediocre. Plus think everything revolves around how many match stars one puts up.

That said, Bradshaw was rather dickish behind the scenes at times. (Granting that is not unusual in ths business.) I could get not liking him for that reason. I wasn't at all unhappy upon hearing about how Steve Blackman put him in his place.

But all that taken, as a character JBL was effective regardless.

Lol you say that like quality of performance is tied to something beyond the ability to execute moves, charisma and ability on the mic, and ring psychology.

JBL had everything. Good in the ring, great to excellent mic work, an extremely solid character that was true to his real life persona etc...

He was stiff as fuck so that and his dickish behavior backstage were marks against him.

He's still ridiculously underrated and one of the best pure heels of all time.

JBL during his "wrestling gawd-uh" days was amazing. I was a cena fan at the time and was still upset when that all went down.

JBL was a fantastic champion who legit drew massive amounts of heat. The smarks hated him but that's typical of the IWC if a wrestler isn't busting out hurricanrana's and shit.

The clothesline from hell was an amazing finisher and JBL is criminally underrated during his time as champion.

Eddie vs JBL was the shit.
This guy gets it.

JBL was putrid as a worker by the time he got his Main Event run, but his character was phenomenal. Unfortunately, they pushed him to the World title so rapidly and with so little build that it was out of nowhere, and he didn't seem to be at that level... until it was just about time to take the belt off of him.

Also, ratings took a goddamn NOSEDIVE during his run, so he was absolutely a poor draw.
