As fans with no inside knowledge continue to way in on the JBL and Mauro Ranallo situation more and more people in the business are commenting on what a nothing-burger this whole “controversy” is.
Legendary manager Jim Cornette weighed on on the heat JBL is generating:
You're stealing my gimmick–I'M supposed to be the asshole who gets heat with everybody! P.S. You're booked in Knoxville starting Xmas 1995! https://t.co/hw7U9XF1qi

“I’m a JBL fan. Here’s the thing about JBL; you have to know the guy. And if you don’t get an opportunity to really know JBL, you can be offended. JBL is a funny guy. He’s a big guy. He’s boisterous. He comes across as, sometimes, crude and loud. But you gotta know him. That’s just JBL. He’s the same guy on commentary as he is in catering.
I don’t (think he loses his job), but hey, that’s my opinion. I don’t think he will, not over something like this.”
