Added DiffLines:

* BaseBreaker: Exactly how good a commentator is JBL? Some people (mostly those who think Michael Cole is the worst) think he's the best on Raw, as he tends to drown Cole out and make him look like a fool. Others, however, think JBL's obnoxious commentary is just as bad, if not ''worse'', than Cole. Others simply hate the entire dynamic between the two of them and don't really consider either one of them too much better than the other. However, almost everyone agrees that JBL, and the entire commentary table at that, are much better off when allowed to speak for themselves without Wrestling/VinceMcMahon screaming lines and catchphrases into their ears, which is unfortunately very rare in the mid-2010's.

* XPacHeat: A lot of fans felt his title reign went on for too long. Hell before that a lot of fans thought his title reign should not have happened and before ''that'' called the breakup of the APA premature. Thankfully, Vince later bumped him to the commentary desk and allowed him to hone his rapport with Michael Cole -- until he wore out his welcome there, too.
-->'''''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2WQHATbb8k#t=1140s Wrestle! Wrestle!]]''''': When Wrestling/BookerT ''isn't'' the worst one at the table, set the table on fire.
** Beating the shit out of Wrestling/TheBlueMeanie did not help his popularity either (at least with the [[Wrestling/ExtremeChampionshipWrestling Mutants]]).

* DudeNotFunny: At a house show in Germany in 2004, JBL, in an attempt to get heel heat, did the Nazi salute while goose-steeping in the ring. That act resulted in his firing from his {{MSNBC}} commentary role.
** During his 2012 return to commentary, he made false comments about Carlos Colon (father of Carlito and Primo, uncle of Epico) owing him money that deeply offended the Colon family. He has since apologized and refrained from making similar remarks about other wrestlers. Interestingly enough, an earlier, more scathing attack on Mil Mascaras (uncle of Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio haven't brought up as much controversy, though other stars such as WWE Hall of Famer [[Wrestling/FreddieBlassie "Classy" Freddie Blassie]], Wrestling/MickFoley and Wrestling/ChrisJericho all slammed Mascaras in their books, saying they hated working with him.
** In a moment of this trope directed at someone else, the Wrestling/UltimateWarrior in 2005 once called former wrestler Droz a cripple, due to him being left quadriplegic after a truly horrible botch. In response, JBL called him a "piece of shit".
