• Rickfuncannonjr1297 Asks: Have you heard Stone Cold's latest podcast with him calling his Wrestlemania 17 match with the Rock? He turns up the volume at some points so you can here your commentary and Paul Heyman's as well. Brilliant idea and one of Steve's greatest podcasts to date!!!
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Yes...very creative podcast which is why he's the king of wrestling podcasts.

    • partypistol Asks: Greetings from the UK Mr Ross. What are your thoughts on the current Impact Wrestling product? I think that they didn't build viable feuds for Bound For Glory and instead just made a WCW/New Japan Supershow with no back story worthy of their showpiece PPV. I think they are building feuds but it may be some time before a payoff, which could be good. Lashley vs MVP, Carter vs Spud, Gunner vs Shaw. I don't think they would necessarily create big money, but they can build the brand with proper feuds rather than constant rebranding. Regards Pete
      J.R.'s Answer:

      The recent Impact Wrestling TV shows have shown a vast improvement because they are showcasing their in ring talents and not doing an overabundance of silly skits and marathon promos.

    • undertaker4ever Asks: Hey JR By the time a lot of wrestlers retire, they have spent years putting their bodies through physical punishment for years. Even WWE's PG can't turn wrestling from physical violence to ballet dancing so the physical pain will still be there. My question is, does the pain ever go away or does a wrestler live with some type of physical setback due to years spent in the ring? Taker, Foley who've been through hell and back countless times, Edge and Austin with neck issues so severe, it forced them to retire, I assume they're still feeling the physical effects of heir matches to a degree. Surgical repairs can hold do so much and only hold up for so long.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Many wrestlers have surgeries to repair their issues and live just fine. Not all but many.

    • cm_peep Asks: J.r. with nxt reportly being hhh's project what do you think the odds of him having a match down there are? Thanks
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I don't see where one has any thing to do with the other. So, unlikely.

    • Ivan Lopez Asks: Dear J.R., Have you considered doing voice over work or been approached for any roles? I think you'd have a great voice for unique characters and narrations.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Ironically yes. There's a plan being formulated for 2015 that may yield 'fruit.'

    • kingjulian21 Asks: Are you surprised Hannibal has not yet signed with a major promotion since being cleared of Hepatitis C?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Not really surprised as who all is hiring outside talents right now? If it's meant to be it will happen. If one is good enough and is the right kind of human being they will find work.

    • kingjulian21 Asks: Stone Cold Steve Austin recently said on his podcast that WWE should sign AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode, and James Storm. I wanted to know from you if WWE should also consider Magnus as he's younger and athletically gifted.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I've mentioned this on my podcast before as well. It's a sound idea. Rookies cannot learn by working with people with the same or less skill set than them. Plus the men mentioned just might get over because they are all talented.

    • rossgraham Asks: You mentioned this briefly but how good an idea was it to have the tag team champions, the intercontinental champion, and the US champion lose on one episode of RAW?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      If done properly and creatively it wouldn't bother me. None of the titles are even luke warm at this time.

    • rossgraham Asks: If you ever make shrimp cocktail, use JR'S chipotle ketchup, mayo and lime juice to make up the base of your sauce. It gives an extra kick to the dish without having to use cayenne pepper or paprika. This may be a heavy question, but wouldn't it make much more sense for WWE to stop cutting valuable staff and just stop doing the "straight to dvd" WWE movies which cody millions but consistently make huge losses? As a movie/wrestling fan, they seem like nothing more than vanity projects for those who are already in the public view on prime time TV. Just my thoughts. Please bring your one man show back to Glasgow. Scotland misses you.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Thanks for the recipe idea which sounds delicious. I'm guessing WWE is close to getting out of the movie business if it doesn't begin earning significant monies.

    • t480 Asks: Idea: Make the WWE U.S. Championship more meaningful by actually downgrading it. Replace the NXT Title with the U.S. title. Having all the top young guys in NXT battle for the U.S. Championship would give it more meaning. The matches would mean more, IMO.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I'd put the US Title on Rusev and watch it mean more immediately.
