    WWE.com BIO
    Once known as the beer-drinking, poker-playing, cigar-smoking brawler who
    helped the APA rise to the top of the WWE tag team division, John "Bradshaw"
    Layfield has a new attitude, new associates and an incredibly impressive reign
    as WWE Champion.
    Back in the late 1990s, The Acolytes -- Bradshaw & Faarooq -- were the massive
    henchmen for Undertaker's Ministry of Darkness. Later, they became known as the
    Acolytes Protection Agency, serving as immediate muscle for needy Superstars.
    Soon, their attention would shift to protecting all of WWE from the ECW/WCW
    During this time, Bradshaw & Faarooq had great success battling the likes of
    The Dudleys, The Hardy Boyz and Edge & Christian, eventually enjoying three
    stints as World Tag Team Champions.
    But after five years of working together, the relationship of Bradshaw and
    Faarooq would sour in March of 2004 after then-SmackDown! General Manager Paul
    Heyman fired Faarooq after the APA lost a match to Rikishi & Scotty 2 Hotty.
    In an effort to keep his own job, Bradshaw turned his back on his partner, and
    decided to focus his energy on emerging as a singles competitor. But a
    significant transformation was also taking place at this time.
    The old Bradshaw, who began wrestling on the Texas circuit and even did a stint
    overseas in Germany, relied strictly on brute strength and intimidation. That
    man was being phased out and a sharper-dressed and sharper-minded Bradshaw
    would take WWE by storm.
    Bradshaw was already a well-educated man who studied ancient history at Abilene
    Christian University, where he also played football. Bradshaw also played
    professional football with the Raiders and even spent some time in the Canadian
    Football League.
    But when the final whistle blew on his football career, JBL, armed with a
    tremendous business acumen, would go on to make a fortune playing the stock
    market, developing a financial portfolio that would rival even the best
    stock-market analyst on Wall Street.
    JBL even relocated out of his native Texas and into a posh penthouse in New
    York. He has traded in his muscle shirts for expensive suits and hats, and now
    sits in a custom Limo that takes him from arena to arena.
    In the summer of 2003, JBL's "Have More Money Now," a commonsense,
    straight-talk financial advice book, was released. He also writes a column for
    WWE.com. JBL was clearly a man of culture, and that part of his personality was
    coming through loud and clear.
    With the motto, "Work harder, work smarter" as his creed, JBL began to achieve
    simi liar success in the ring.
    In the spring of 2004, JBL began to have an impact on SmackDown!, making it
    clear he was coming after Eddie Guerrero's WWE Championship. And at The Great
    American Bash on June 27 of 2004, JBL defeated Latino Heat in a Bull Rope Match.
    Once on top, JBL began to organize a Cabinet, enlisting the help of Orlando
    Jordan, a one-time United States Champion in his own right, as his Chief of
    Staff. The Basham Brothers, former WWE Tag Team Champions, are JBL's
    Co-Secretaries of Defense.
    Meanwhile, JBL has spent the last eight-plus months defending his WWE
    Championship. JBL has survived brutal and sometimes bloody battles with
    Undertaker, Booker T, Big Show and Kurt Angle to retain that coveted prize.
    He outlasted Guerrero, Booker T and Undertaker in a Fatal Fourway at
    Armageddon. JBL survived a Triple Threat Match with Kurt Angle and Big Show at
    the Royal Rumble, and then he emerged the bloodied victor in a painful Barbed
    Wire Steel Cage Match with Big Show at No Way Out.
    When JBL takes on John Cena at WrestleMania 21, he will be working on his ninth
    straight month as WWE Champion, easily the longest such reign in more than a
    JBL's work ethic, intelligence and savvy have never been sharper.
    My comments on Bradshaw:
    JBL is a great wrestler and is one of the best technicians today. He is
    powerful and quick, though his arrogancy has been to the fan's despise. Great
    singles competitor (1 (WWE Championship, 1 European Championship, 17 Hardcore
    Championship) and has been known as a tag team specialist (3 World Tag team

    4.0 Strategy
    Use 'Scoop Slam 04' to take advantage of your opponents. J.B. Layfield's
    deadliest finisher is the Clothesline From Hell. The easiest way to use the
    Clothesline From Hell is to damage your opponent's midsection to at least,
    orange. Then hit a move that targets that part (e.g. Last Call, Scoop Slam 04).
    Then make your opponent stand up (your opponent should be groggy for 2-3
    seconds depending on the body damage). Then run to the ropes that your opponent
    face to and hit the Clothesline From Hell. There's also another way. Simpler,
    but needs good timing. Irish whip your opponent to the ropes. As your opponent
    bounces back, run and hit L1. Your opponent should be knocked down if the
    timing is right. If not, the Clothesline From Hell would be delivered, but
    won't knock your opponent down.
