Former WWE star JBL posted a series of tweets last night aimed at Cody Rhodes, one of which said he'd kill the wrestler – but Layfield has now apologized, admitting he drank one too many.
In case you missed it … JBL also tweeted saying Cody is a tool, not in his league and that he could beat Rhodes any day in a match (even though he's retired).
Friday morning, however, Layfield changed his tune. "Was having fun with Cody last night and said I'd kill Cody Rhodes, I obviously did not mean that literally," he wrote on Twitter. "It was a very poor choice of words, I went way back with him and his family and I just was talking smack in a pro wrestling sense. I apologize for that poor choice of words. "
Adding, "I did not mean disrespect to dusty. It's what happens when elation from a cowboys win, my birthday, talking smack and booze mix. "
Public figures, here's a tip: Do not drink and tweet. It usually does not end well.
