* JBL was the guy who thought of the annual ''WWE Tribute to the Troops'', lobbying until Wrestling/VinceMcMahon accepted the idea. During ''Tribute to the Troops 2012'', this was finally acknowledged.
* The immense warmth and respect with which he recalls his rivalry with Eddie Guerrero on the 2009 Viva La Raza DVD.
* 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/BookerT, Wrestling/EddieGuerrero and Wrestling/TheUndertaker at WWE ''[[Wrestling/ArmageddonWrestling Armageddon 2004]]''. In return, JBL showed true gratefulness, especially to Orlando Jordan.
--> '''Orlando Jordan''': "Champ ... you've got this one, man."
* 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.

* As a commentator JBL was a constant and vocal critic of Smackdown GM Wrestling/TeddyLong, 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=].
* When Wrestling/DolphZiggler superkicked Wrestling/JerryLawler on the January 17th 2017 episode of ''[=SmackDown=]'', JBL didn't hesitate for a second to leave the commentary booth to check on him.
* Outside the ring, [=JBL=] runs a Beyond Rugby Bermuda, a foundation that helps kids in Bermuda (where he resides now) by teaching them UsefulNotes/RugbyUnion and using it as an alternative to gangs and gang violence.
