Rich Brennan on working with JBL

Evan Prout of Under the Mat Radio passed along an interview with former WWE and NXT commentator Rich Brennan where he talked about working with JBL in the company. Brennan described JBL as being “difficult” to work with.

“JBL was difficult to work with as a broadcast partner, it’s nothing you can do about it because that’s Vince’s guy. With this whole thing going on (Mauro situation) I don’t know but it seems like he’s entrenched there. He basically violates all rules when it comes to broadcast announcers in how we are trained to be announcers because he can.  Difficult to work with part of that is his heel persona, some of that is if he (JBL) doesn’t like you or respect you then it’s dialed up little bit. At times I felt like he really didn’t work to make the product better he was just there to get himself over. Backstage he was okay to me, can I see him giving Mauro a hard time? Absolutely I can.”
