JBL “lucky to be alive” after first mountain climb

Former WWE champion John “Bradshaw” Layfield had a close call in his first out of seven mountain climbs which he is doing for a charity in Barbados where he lives.

JBL’s first trip was to Russia where he is conquering Mount Elbrus as part of his Seven Summits challenge, an adventure which WWE is sponsoring.

Before he set off for the summit, he noted on Twitter that there’s bad weather and that it will be very cold and wet.

“Got hypoxia and was fighting frostbite, still made it to 1,000 feet of summit then huge storm pushed us off mountain,” JBL later tweeted, adding that he is lucky to be alive.

He was doing good after coming back and recuperating from a tough climb. JBL is carrying a WWE flag with him and is planning to plant it at every top of the seven highest mountains in each continent that he’s planning to go to.
