Word is coming in about a major backstage altercation that took place while the WWE crew was overseas in Iraq for Tribute to the Troops. Former ECW personality and WWE.com writer Joey Styles punched out former WWE Champion John Bradshaw Layfield, busting him open under the eye.

JBL is one of the senior members of the WWE lockerroom and has a reputation for being somewhat of a bully. According to several sources, JBL picked out Joey Styles to be the target of his hazing during the Iraq tour. JBL was messing with Styles all week, including calling him condecending names in front of other WWE employees and spilling a drink on him intentionally.

After a few days of abuse, Joey Styles had enough abuse and confronted JBL, who had been drinking at the time. The altercation turned physical and Styles dropped JBL with a punch to the face. Several wrestlers had to step in and break it up.

At last night's RAW tapings, JBL was unusually quiet while Styles tried to play down the incident and did not want to talk about it. While some companies would fire an employee for an incident like this, there are actually some people within the company that feel Styles standing up for himself might actually score him some points with Vince McMahon.
This is an unbelievable story. Little Joey Styles punching out JBL!? Wtf!

Nice! Go Joey, go!

While some companies would fire an employee for an incident like this,
What is this...? I don't even... That's ridiculous to fire somebody for standing up for themselves. If ANYTHING take disciplinary action against JBL for causing this whole mess.

JBL deserved it to be honest with you.

Well normal jobs you can't just punch your fellow employee in the face...even when provoked sometimes.

JBL got what he deserved...or at least it sounds like he did.

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's outstanding. Bradshaw continuously shows that he's a grade A punk in real life, lest we also forget the Blue Meanie incident a few years back.

Wow that's incredible, didn't expect Joey would be able to do that to JBL. But all I have to say is thank god for Joey that JBL wasnt able to get back at him, because he could of done major damage.

Regarding the JBL/Joey Styles story that is up at PWInsider.com, there isn't much to add to it that wasn't reported there. Basically, during the Iraq trip JBL was in full hazing mode with Joey Styles and Styles could finally take no more. There was a scuffle, a bunch of people jumped in to break it up, JBL, who had been drinking, broke free, and as he was charging Styles (yes, Joey Styles) punched him right in the face and knocked him down. JBL ended up with a cut and blackened eye which was somewhat visible under heavy make-up yesterday. About the only thing we can add is that apparently there were a number of different things that JBL did to him during the course of the tour, all of which would have set a normal person off, some of them verbal and some of them more physical. JBL spent most of Monday night by himself in the locker room, being very quiet and spending most of the time dinking around on his Blackberry. There will be more on this in tomorrow's edition of the Observer, likely including a look at other JBL-related incidents including the infamous beating of Blue Meanie at One Night Stand and incidents that led to Palmer Cannon quitting. JBL also dumped a bucket of ice on Lilian after she fell asleep on the plane, so he was in quite the mood. Or he just watched Coyote Ugly.

What the heck? What is wrong with him. Seriously, it's work place harassment and JBL is just a rude jerk. Now he's picking on women instead of men? :\

LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE, JBL. >.<;
