Global Wrestling Federation

Layfield was trained initially by Brad Rheingans and first started wrestling in the Global Wrestling Federation in Texas in 1992. His first gimmick was as Johnny Hawk, storyline cousin of the famous Windham brothers. He formed the "Texas Mustangs" with Bobby Duncum, Jr., and they quickly won the tag team titles but dropped them to Ian & Axl Rotten (Bad Breed). Layfield also won the NWA North American Title, defeating Kevin Von Erich. Two months later, he lost the NWA North American Title to Greg "The Hammer" Valentine.

World Wrestling Federation / World Wrestling Entertainment (1995-present)

1995-1997

After three and a half years touring the independent circuit in various forgettable guises, Layfield first appeared in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) as Justin "Hawk" Bradshaw in late 1995. His initial gimmick was that of a tough cowboy/mountain man, similar in tone to Stan Hansen. After victories, he branded his opponents with the symbol "JB." Of course, the brand was in ink, rather than being seared into the flesh. Managed by Uncle Zebekiah, the character fizzled out by the end of the year, perhaps remembered only for a feud with Savio Vega and a match with Fatu which he won in eight seconds. Layfield then quickly paired up with his (storyline) cousin Barry Windham to form "The New Blackjacks," complete with the traditional "Blackjack" gimmicks of handlebar mustaches and short, jet black hair.

Windham's injuries piled up throughout 1997, so the team disbanded, and Layfield wrestled only occasionally on TV as a generic brawler simply called "Bradshaw", sometimes teaming with fellow Texan Terry Funk.

1998-2001

For more details on this topic, see Acolytes Protection Agency.

In late 1998, Bradshaw teamed alongside former World Championship Wrestling (WCW) World Champion Faarooq to form the powerhouse tag team Hell's Henchmen, managed by the Jackal. Eventually the Jackal left the WWF, and Bradshaw and Faarooq joined The Undertaker's new Ministry of Darkness alliance under the name The Acolytes, along with other various wrestlers. The Ministry went on to feud with the Corporation. As part of the Ministry, Bradshaw feuded with Ken Shamrock. The Ministry was defeated by Stone Cold Steve Austin, and the Undertaker went on hiatus, so Bradshaw and Faarooq's dark gimmick faded.

The duo turned face to become cigar-smoking, bar-brawlers-for-hire. In jeans and t-shirts, Bradshaw and Faarooq became the Pulp Fiction-inspired Acolytes Protection Agency (APA), with a motto of "Because we need the beer money." The duo was often seen in the backrooms of arenas with a trademark poker table and later a framed doorway comically in the middle of the often large, open aired hallways, but they insisted that anyone entering the space use the door. Occasionally, if the "room" was destroyed in one arena, it was setup exactly as it was destroyed at the next arena, pushing continuity through time and space for comic effect. As a team, they won the WWF Tag Team Titles three times. Bradshaw also won the WWF European Championship in October 2001. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

2002-2003

Bradshaw.

In early 2002, Bradshaw and Faarooq split due to the WWE Draft. Now on RAW, Layfield's character had an increased emphasis on his Texas roots, which included him carrying a cowbell to the ring. He also became a multiple-time WWE Hardcore Champion. Renaming the belt as the Texas Hardcore Championship, he won that title a total of eighteen times. It was also during the time that his finishing move was briefly renamed from the Clothesline from Hell to the Clothesline from Texas or the Clothesline from deep in the heart of Texas. Jim Ross often called the move as such during his commentary, although the name eventually reverted back to the original Clothesline from Hell.

In September 2002, Layfield suffered a torn left biceps at a house show event. He was out of action for six months until returning to Ohio Valley Wrestling and then a few weeks later to the active WWE roster. He returned on an episode of SmackDown!, which saw him and his old friend Faarooq saving the Undertaker from the hands of Chuck Palumbo and Johnny Stamboli. Layfield returned with a new look, cutting his long hair and not dying it black, and shaving his facial hair. After that, he and Faarooq competed for the WWE Tag Team Championship.

2004

The gimmick continued on-and-off until early 2004, when Faarooq (Ron Simmons) was fired in storyline (in actuality he retired) from WWE after losing a tag team "You're Fired" Match in Boston. Then-SmackDown! General Manager Paul Heyman reminded Bradshaw that the "You're Fired" stipulation applied only to Faarooq and Bradshaw should think about his own future, noting his status as a successful author and then-FOX News personality. (Despite Layfield turning his back on Faarooq on TV, the two remain close friends to this day. Simmons was the best man at Layfield's second wedding.)

The next week, Bradshaw changed his gimmick into a Wall Street-esque heel persona complete with a suit, cowboy hat and tie. To complete his heel turn, he began using John "Bradshaw" Layfield, or JBL, as his stage name. As in 2002, his finishing move's name was part of the overhaul, becoming the Clothesline From Wall Street though he later changed it back to Clothesline from Hell. His first promo was on the border between Texas and Mexico, where he hunted for incoming illegal immigrants in order to win a "Great American Award", which granted the winner number one contendership to the WWE Championship. He won, and immediately challenged Eddie Guerrero for the title. The storyline leading up to Judgment Day 2004 was that JBL caused Eddie's mother to have a kayfabe heart attack at a house show when he threatened her and grabbed her by the shoulder. At Judgment Day, JBL defeated Eddie Guerrero via disqualification in a WWE Title match. JBL went on to win the WWE Championship controversially from Guerrero at The Great American Bash where the initial decision of Guerrero's victory was reversed during the Texas Bull Rope Match by then-General Manager Kurt Angle, awarding the match and the title to JBL, as the replay showed that JBL touched the fourth corner before Guerrero touched the fourth corner. JBL won a rematch in a steel cage match two weeks later in Providence, Rhode Island, again with Angle's assistance. In professional wrestling, a heel is a villain character. ...

JBL won several squash matches in the following weeks. After claiming he would not be defending the title at SummerSlam, Undertaker challenged JBL for the title. Around this time, JBL hired Orlando Jordan to help him in title matches. JBL won the match by disqualification. After the match, Undertaker choke-slammed JBL through the roof of his limo. JBL wore a halo (complete with his cowboy hat on top) for the next few weeks to sell his "injuries". General Manager Theodore Long then booked a "Last Ride Match" for the title at No Mercy.

Though JBL held the title for many months, most title matches were won controversially. At the 2004 Survivor Series, JBL defeated Booker T to retain his WWE Championship by hitting Booker in the face with the title belt when the referee was knocked out. JBL also defeated Eddie Guerrero, Booker T, and the Undertaker in a Fatal Four Way at Armageddon after interference by Heidenreich, who incapacitated the Undertaker, allowing JBL to take advantage and hit Booker with the Clothesline From Hell to get the pinfall victory.

The "JBL" character, at first, mimicked the actions of a J. R. Ewing-style businessman running for office (campaign speeches, kissing babies, etc., which fit with the 2004 Election Cycle) but then started referring to himself as a "Wrestling God", much to the on-screen disdain of RAW's then-World Champion Triple H.

2005

The Cabinet: "Chief of Staff" Orlando Jordan and Layfield, the WWE Champion.

During JBL's time as WWE Champion, he employed "staff" to work for him. The stable was named The Cabinet. At its peak, the stable contained Orlando Jordan, who was JBL's "Chief-of-Staff." Doug and Danny Basham were his "Co-Secretaries of Defense" until "quitting" the Cabinet on the June 16, 2005 episode of SmackDown! Amy Weber was also a member, being JBL's image consultant, but later left WWE due to alleged harassment. WWE explained Weber's absence by saying that JBL "fired" her after an episode of SmackDown! taped in Japan. That episode saw Weber accidentally shoot JBL with a tranquilizer gun. Jordan is the only member not announced to have left the group, though mention of the term cabinet went on hiatus after SummerSlam 2005 and Orlando was released from WWE in May 2006.

JBL's luck continued in early 2005, and at the Royal Rumble, he snuck past both Big Show and Kurt Angle in a Triple Threat Match when he pinned Angle after the Clothesline From Hell. He once again emerged with his title intact from WWE's first-ever Barbed-Wire Steel Cage Match at No Way Out against Big Show. JBL won the match when Big Show chokeslammed JBL off the top rope through the ring. JBL managed to crawl out from under the ring apron before Show could make it to the floor, winning the match by escape. On the next edition of SmackDown!, JBL had a "Celebration of Excellence" in which he and his Cabinet celebrated the fact that he was the longest-reigning WWE Champion in ten years (since Diesel), a party which was broken up and ruined by newly-crowned #1 contender John Cena.

On June 12, 2005, Layfield appeared at the WWE-promoted ECW One Night Stand 2005 pay-per-view as an anti-ECW "crusader." In the course of the night, however, he shot on The Blue Meanie (see Blue Meanie Incident and Aftermath). WWE capitalized on the situation by re-signing Heffron to a short-term contract. On the July 7, 2005 episode of SmackDown!, Blue Meanie was reunited with his old Blue World Order associates Nova and Steven Richards and he defeated Layfield with the help of the World Heavyweight Champion Batista, who was drafted to SmackDown! a few weeks after Cena was drafted to RAW. is the 163rd day of the year (164th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On the September 16, 2005 episode of SmackDown!, JBL lost to Rey Mysterio and hired Jillian Hall to "fix" his career. At No Mercy, JBL defeated Mysterio. JBL then teamed up with Rey Mysterio in the SmackDown! versus RAW rivalry with Chris Masters and Edge. He was named one of the superstars whom fans could vote in to face Edge and Masters at 2005's Taboo Tuesday event. Though he wasn't chosen, he later defeated Chris Benoit on November 10, 2005 with the help of Booker T to become a member of "Team Smackdown!" to face "Team RAW" at Survivor Series.
