JBL Newest Member Of 2020 Hall Of Fame Class

I'm a big fan of this move as the APA was one of my favorite tag teams ever (huge Ron Simmons fan right here), and his solo run as JBL (JR Ewing meets wrestling or Texan Million Dollar Man) was an absolute riot.

One thing that always stuck with me was him talking about why he wore the towel around his neck as part of his entrance. Without digging it up the idea was the sell his delusional nature. Basically, he wanted people to think, [This goof thinks he's Lou Thesz.]

Anyhow, JBL was entertaining and I'm glad to see him get this moment. I even enjoyed him on commentary which is likely a hot take in my crowd.
