JBL Tells Hilarious Story Of Getting Silent Treatment From TSA After Heel Turn

WWE Hall of Famer JBL recently told a very funny story of being given the silent treatment at the airport after a heel turn.

Speaking during a Q&A on his YouTube channel, JBL said the TSA wouldn’t talk to him after he turned on Terry Funk. Here is the quote, courtesy of WrestleZone: 

“I idolized Terry and then I got to tag with Terry in WWE. I used to fly through Dallas all the time and security way before 9/11, they just talked to you because they didn’t have as much to do. It wasn’t as important as it turned out to be after 9/11. I didn’t realize it at the time. And they always would laugh at me being a heel. Wherever I was they would laugh about whatever I’d done on television except for the time I turned on Terry Funk and when I turned on Terry Funk, I walked through the airport and no one says a word to me and I finally look over there and all the guys are just sitting over there looking at me and I’m like, ‘C’mon guys,’ and I look over and one of them says, ‘That shit wasn’t right. That shit just wasn’t right.’”

JBL knows a thing or two about getting bad reactions after heel turns. There is also the famous story of him needing a police escort out of town when he appeared in Texas during his feud with Eddie Guerrero.
