In a story that might be hard to believe, PWInsider's Mike Johnson is reporting that during WWE's tour of Iraq last week retired WWE announcer and current WWE.com personality Joey Styles punched out former WWE Champion JBL during an altercation between the two. The punch busted JBL open under the eye according to reports.

As the story was explained, JBL made Styles somewhat of a hazing target during the trip as it was Styles' first tour of Iraq with WWE. Reports indicate that JBL was trying to bully Styles with many condescending comments and actions, including spilling a drink on Styles on purpose. Of course, this is not uncommon with JBL as he is known for pulling things like this with many performers and many simply deal with it because he has political stroke as a result of being a veteran.

Apparently a few days into the tour JBL, who many said had been drinking, did something that caused Styles to retaliate physically in defense. A number of wrestlers reportedly stepped in to hold the two apart. When JBL broke free, he went towards Styles and Styles is said to have nailed JBL with a pretty good shot according to one witness, laying out JBL, busting him open and blackening his eye. There were said to be no further incidents between Styles and JBL on the tour after that.

A few WWE sources have described the incident as karma coming back to JBL for his antics in the past with former Smackdown talent Palmer Cannon (who quit WWE during a European tour as a result of JBL's antics) as well as the very well known incident at the 2005 ECW One Night Stand PPV where JBL took it upon himself to take out The Blue Meanie during the closing brawl of the PPV. The incident between Styles and JBL was said to be talked about quite a bit at last night's Raw taping in Philadelphia, with many becoming amazed at hearing the story. JBL was described as acting completely subdued at the taping, which is something out of the ordinary for him as he more than likely knew the story was making the rounds. Styles was attempting to downplay the incident to those who brought it up to him. The general feeling was that it was considered doubly embarrassing for JBL since he was one of the main people involved with setting up the Iraq tours. The incident has now been coined by some in the company as the "Iraq Punchout."



Who's the always dapper guy
That can yell "Oh my god" on the fly?
(Styles!)
You're damn right

Who is the man
That punched out that Bill O'Reilly fan?
(Styles!)
Can ya dig it?

Who's the cat that won't back down
And made JBL poop himself and frown
(Styles!)
Right on

You see this cat Styles is a bad mother--
(Shut your mouth)
But I'm talkin' about Joey
(Then we can dig it)

He's a complicated man
But no one understands him but his fans
(Joey Styles)

I like the thread, especially since it uses the gif I posted. The JKO needs to be memorialized.

But, regarding the other part of the title- (and this has nothing to do with Chase lest he or anyone else may think such things) Why do people spell pro wrestling as "pro-wrestling"? There's something about the superfluous hyphen that irks me.

What a fucking crap match. LAME. Cena makes Jericho tap out after 2 seconds?!?!? Give me a break. Jericho hit the codebreaker and the walls of Jericho, plus a monsterous bulldog onto the outside stairs. Jericho should have had that match.


I'll post this here, too, since it is definitely worthy and I'm still irked by Jericho losing in such retarded way. Probably Vince's doing. sigh.

I agree with your sentiments. 100-percent. Cena kicking out the Codebreaker then muscling out of the Walls of Jericho really hurts Jericho's credibility. :bomb: Oh yeah, and Jericho tapping so quickly adds to it.

That STFU was reminiscent of Batista's headlock from Summerslam, just flex your arm and not even touch the other guy

Cena hopping up following 45 seconds of the WoJ like he wasn't hurt at all was pretty lousy in terms of believability. The end of the match was hot, but that doesn't change that Cena gets no respect. Whether or not he deserves it is immaterial: he doesn't get it anyway.

I can't believe Matt didn't come out there to celebrate with him. I guess I can see why, with the big ending on top of the stage, but I'm still surprised Matt wasn't there.

How long do you guys think he'll hold on to the belt? I'm guessing he'll drop it at, or by the next PPV.

I'm going to say Jeff holds onto it until No Way Out, successfully defending against Edge or H at RR while the other one probably wins the Rumble. Although if they do go with Triple H vs. Taker at the Wrestlemania, it wouldnt necessarily need the belt involved, leaving maybe a Jeff vs. Edge TLC?

Any combo of those top 4 guys on Smackdown is a solid matchup though

Probably b/c it would've made it seem like he disposed of Kozlov, which probably wouldnt be good for their feud at this point. If he didnt come out during the match, then he would've been there for the celebration

Ha, I read the results and came in to mention the same thing that two others already have... that, while the 'big one' is exciting for Hardy, it really does seem like they put the belt on Edge just so HHH didn't have to lay down for Hardy.
