A WWE Hall of Famer has revealed that he has a storyline in mind for a potential comeback, but does say he doubts it’ll ever actually happen.
JBL, who was in the Hall of Fame class of 2020 even though the COVID-19 pandemic has meant there’s not been an induction ceremony yet, says he’s thought of a “wonderful storyline” for if he’s to make a return.
Speaking with Sportskeeda, JBL said:
“I would love a return. I loved the business. I loved every second of it. I retired when I had to not because I wanted to, you know, because of the injuries. So, if I can do it, I would love to. I don’t know if I physically could or not, it’s been years since I’ve been in the ring. I think it’s been around 10 or 11 years, so I’m not sure a return is feasible. But would I love one? My god, absolutely. And I’ve got a storyline for it too, by the way. I’ve got a wonderful storyline.
“I’m not sharing it with anybody. I’ve shared it with one person. That’s about it. The odds are, I would bet overwhelmingly it never happens. Because I don’t think physically I can do it. But I would love to. When you’re an old wrestler, you always sit around and think ‘Hey what would I do if I can go back now?’ So you sit around and you come up with this crazy ideas, that’s what that is inside my head, coming up with this crazy storyline.”
Despite being retired from in-ring action for over 10 years (except a cameo Royal Rumble appearance in 2014), he’s still featured in WWE as a pay-per-view pre-show analyst and occasionally a commentator.
