Former WWE star JBL has confirmed that he will be in Waterloo, Iowa next summer to accept the Lou Thesz Award at the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame induction weekend.

SLAM! Wrestling has posted an article on this featuring some quotes from JBL. Below is an excerpt:

“I still talk to the guys at WWE regularly. I’ve got a great relationship. I did the one thing with “Stone Cold” [Steve Austin] several months ago to promote WrestleMania. It’s not that I don’t want to do anything, it’s just I don’t want to travel. I’m tired of getting on a plane. Plus, living in Bermuda, it’s a long trek to get anywhere to do something for them,” he said.
