JBL Denies Stealing Passport
JBL has denied that he once stole Justin Roberts’ passport during a UK tour. The allegation was made in the former WWE ring announcer’s new book. Roberts says he had to go to the US embassy in London to get it reissued before he could travel home.
I won't answer Net rumors-but I didn't take Justin Roberts passport. Could have been anyone/he was hated by the whole crew. He's an idiot.

“Stealing a passport out of someone’s bag is a pretty evil rib and not giving it back means it’s no longer a rib,” Roberts wrote in his book.
He also noted numerous instances of bullying at the hands of the SmackDown commentator:
“JBL would throw my bags down the street…he typically referred to me as dipshit and numbnuts despite my always trying to do a great job…every day I saw him, he asked me why I was still alive and told me to go kill myself”.
