Nash later wrote, "Rock will never walk out of the Rumble with the belt we got Phils back... Sorry @CMPunk we got your back!!!!"
Nash also stated that Punk would be the leader and that the nWo army would be there "to protect the gold."
"Eddie and I were really good friends," JBL said. "Eddie wanted the JBL character to succeed very badly. When I first started, I had been a mid-card to an upper-mid card guy my whole career. I filled in a few main events, but I was not a main event guy. People just weren't buying the JBL character, it was forced down on them. It was one day I was Bradshaw and the next day I was JBL, with a cowboy hat in a world title match- people just didn't buy it.
"Eddie really took that personal and he took it upon himself to get me overů His brother [Chavo] was a huge instrumental piece of what we did during that time. That's when we came up with the heart attack angle with his mother and that's when we came up with the immigration, back and forth over the border. A lot of that was Eddie, Chavo and I sitting around in the dressing room talking. If it hadn't been for Eddie I don't think the JBL character would have ever worked."
JBL also gave an update about his upcoming climbs and revealed how he pitched the idea of "Tribute to the Troops" to Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn. You can watch the interview below:
