A WWE Hall of Famer is expected to return to an on-screen role with the company as the manager of a current WWE Superstar.

PWInsider has reported that WWE Hall of Famer JBL is scheduled to be at the next few Raw shows “in some capacity” according to the chatter at the recent SmackDown in New Orleans.

JBL wasn’t seen on camera on the 2nd of September edition of SmackDown but his trademark limousine was seen picking up Happy Corbin, who was anything but what his name suggested at the time. Although Corbin is a SmackDown star, the recent movement of Rey Mysterio and Omos to the blue brand suggests there could be movement the other way, with Corbin possibly set for a switch to Raw.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield had an illustrious career in the wrestling business, first finding popularity as part of the APA alongside Ron Simmons. In 2004, Bradshaw left the bar room for the board room as he reinvented himself as financial mogul JBL. This change in character brought its own rewards with the Texan-turned-New-Yorker capturing the WWE Championship.

After stepping away from the ring, Layfield maintained a presence on WWE television as part of the commentary team for the company, stepping away from that role in 2017.

JBL set the rumours for a return in motion when he responded to WWE’s social media account when it asked back in September what Happy Corbin should get for his birthday. Layfield teased something was in the works when he suggested “A manager?”
