John Bradshaw Layfield posted the following on his Facebook page…
“Getting ready to go to Africa to climb Kilimanjaro to raise money for the kids I work with every week in Bermuda. Had a blast at WWE, and very grateful for nice feedback. Don’t know the future-I was asked to fill in for King and my only hope is that he gets better.
“My only plans now are to go to Africa and climb to the top of Kilimanjaro, I leave Friday. When I return we will be starting up our program for this year in Bermuda-so have a very busy fall ahead of me.
“The dangerous mountain I have ahead of me is in January when I attempt to climb Aconcagua in South America (they call it ‘Mt Death’).
“I feel good about Kilimanjaro, unless I get altitude sickness or have an accident I should make it. I am in as good of shape as I can be, so I’m very excited to start climbing.
“Was great to be around WWE again. Felt like I had returned home-was really enjoyable. I also enjoyed the art of trying to put these guys over on commentary. I was a lot more rusty than what I thought but was fun being out there.”
