* JBL was the guy who thought of the annual ''WWE Tribute to the Troops'', lobbying until [[{{Wrestling/VinceMcMahon}} Vince McMahon]] accepted the idea. During ''Tribute to the Troops 2012'', this was finally acknowledged.
* His induction speech for {{Heterosexual Life Partner|s}} Wrestling/RonSimmons at the 2012 WWE Hall of Fame.
* An in-character moment: his [[PowerStable Cabinet]] encouraging him before his title defense against {{Wrestling/Booker T}}, {{Wrestling/Eddie Guerrero}} and {{Wrestling/The Undertaker}} at WWE Armageddon 2004. In return, JBL showed true gratefulness, especially to Orlando Jordan.
--> '''Orlando Jordan''': "Champ ... you've got this one, man."
* 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? To react with total delight (repeating "That's my man!" as Long came down the ramp), leave the commentators' booth while imitating Long's signature dance, then cross over to him and enthusiastically shake 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.
