JBL Planning To Climb The Highest Peak On Every Continent For Charity; WWE Donates $250,000 & Plans To Raise Awareness Of Cause

TMZ is reporting that WWE plans to support John Layfield’s quest to climb the highest peak on every continent, both through raising awareness and a $250,000 donation. The following excerpt from TMZ explains:

“JBL has been planning to climb the highest peak on each continent to help raise money for a charity he works with called Family Center — the group helps needy kids in Bermuda where he lives. JBL was going to pay for the expeditions out of his own pocket until the WWE stepped up to help.

JBL tells TMZ, “The WWE is sponsoring my whole 7 summits trip and will help get the word out across their social media platforms … all to raise money for the kids program.”

45-year old JBL says 100% of the proceeds will go to Family Center — and he hopes conquering legendary peaks like Everest and Kilimanjaro inspires the kids in Bermuda to know anything is possible.”

When asked about his future with WWE on Twitter, Layfield responded:

    Sad thing Is that JBL gets boos Jn the ring but people dont realise he does more charity work than any face or anyone in the busniess

    Interesting campaign.

    As for the last bit of the article, I sure hope JBL comes back as a commentator or GM if he ever does return. Those roles are like…made for him.

      I know right!! The guy had poor ring skills but he was one of the best heels in the business. I was a huge fan of his commentary on Smackdown. Hopefully he could become an announcer.
