Gerald Brisco has disputed accusations made against fellow WWE Hall Of Famer JBL of him being a bully, and gone in to detail of an example of how he is one of the most kind-hearted people you can find.

JBL became a top-level player in WWE, moving from being a tag team specialist to a singles star whilst also transitioning his character in to the detested mogul. During his time in WWE he had a number of run-ins with other stars which have been well documented, including the likes of Public Enemy and Tully Blanchard.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Gerald Brisco talked about the other side of JBL, including a great act of kindness during the pandemic.

JBL is one of those entertaining guys. John kind of gets categorized into this category of being a bit of a bully and all that. But he’s one of the most kind-hearted guys that you can ever come across.

The stuff that he did for rugby, he moved over to the island of Bermuda. He started a rugby league there and he actually had guys who started from when they were kids and now these guys are playing division one college rugby.

Now he’s gone into Memphis with the inner-city kids there and he does fundraising. He bought over 500 computers last year for these inner-city kids when everybody had to do this virtual learning. Not all these kids had access to computers and everything.

This club that he formed, he made sure through his fundraising ability that everybody had a computer. Everybody was on an equal basis. Not only did they have a computer, but they had people there that could instruct them on how to use it. John is just a wonderful person. We are both positive people, once you get to know John and know his kind heart.

Gerald Brisco also recently discussed his role in the Montreal Screwjob, including the threats he ended up making towards Earl Hebner to get him to referee the match.
