Former WWE Superstar says JBL told him to steal Justin Roberts passport
In a recent interview, Lucha Underground champion Johnny Mundo addressed the rumors of JBL bullying former ring announcer Justin Roberts as well as half of the roster. Roberts recently accused JBL of stealing his passport in his book, which JBL vehemently denied. Mundo had this to say on the incident:
“JBL asked me and my partner to steal [Justin’s] passport, and we didn’t. JBL was one of the main event guys at the time, and I don’t remember exactly what Justin Roberts did to become the target for the hazing of this specific oversea trip, but JBL asked me and Joey to snag Justin’s passport.
I remember it ‘being a thing,’ you know? We were looking at Justin, he was a few rows ahead of us on this plane, sleeping. We were like, ‘What do we do?’
Ultimately, we considered the options, and wound up deciding to not do it. This is a weird thing for a wrestler to say, especially in that era, but I usually went by the golden rule. I wouldn’t have appreciated someone doing that to me, especially someone I considered a peer.”
This isn’t the first time JBL and Morrison have clashed. Years later when Morrison was teaming with the Miz, JBL was berating them for a match backstage when Morrison stood up to him, shoved him and said “You wanna go?” After being pulled apart by the locker room, JBL never heckled Morrison again.
