* As a commentator JBL was a constant and vocal critic of Smackdown GM Teddy Long, often crossing over into InsaneTrollLogic in doing so. So how does JBL react to Long returning on the 10/10/2014 Smackdown? With total delight (repeating "That's my man!" as Long came down the ramp), leaving the commentators' booth while imitating Long's signature dance, then crossing over to him and enthusiastically shaking his hand before he gets in the ring. Cole even comments he hasn't seen JBL that excited since the aforementioned induction of Ron Simmons into the [=HoF=].

Added DiffLines:

* According to interviews, ''The JBL and Cole Show'' was specifically designed by JBL to provide a showcase for WWE talent he felt was underutilized, such as Cody Rhodes, Wade Barrett and Heath Slater. While other backstage stories paint JBL very unflatteringly, it is impressive that at a stage of his career where he had nothing left to prove he still actively tried to help younger talent get over.
