• shauny79 Asks: Hi Jim, like you I really enjoyed Enzo Amore's mike work at Battleground, especially his "banana" line, and Randy Orton's zinger about Brock Lesnar. From your long career, can you think of the line or joke by an in-ring talent that made you laugh the most?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      nothing in particular stands out but there have been many comedic moments over the years that were winners.

    • Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: I am against the idea to have PPV particpants to wrestle a match in live events  the week which is leading up to the PPV, it could potentially cause an injury to divas and superstars that would cause them to perform poorly at the PPV. For example, Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins  match which took place on Friday Night, which was only 2 days before the PPV. I disliked the idea of having PPV particpants who are scheduled for a match in the live event in the week of the PPV. I think all superstars and divas who are not scheduled for a PPV match, they should take the bookings for live events. However as for those who are part of PPV bookings, they should not wrestle any matches at the live events during the PPV week.  I believe the week of the PPV should allow particpant superstars and divas of the PPV  to rest up and get ready right after WWE Smackdown. Any Thoughts? Thanks.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I don't agree with your opinion but respect your ability to share it.

    • 79bcb Asks: Is Cesaro going to be the next star to get the Damien Sandow treatment? Meaning here is a guy that got over organically without the machine behind them only to have the creative team and the higher ups never really give him a chance to run with the ball? I think its criminal that a green Reigns has had 3 title runs that flopped and Cesaro has rarely sniffed the main event.................
      J.R.'s Answer:

      You ask a question for which you know that I have no answer. If you are so disillusioned re the WWE, why do you still watch? 

       Remember, it's pro wrestling and not life & death. Exhale & enjoy.

    • clrj3514 Asks: I'm just 23 and I've watched a decent amount of 80s NWA, especially Flair, but I want to watch some more. I figured I'd come to the wrestling source I trust most and see if there are any events or matches in particular in the WWE Network library that you would suggest. Thanks in advance!
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Try WCW from late 80's thru early 90's. plus Mid Atlantic content is strong too.

    • jakefromstatefarm_116 Asks: I realized that there are some wrestlers who look at wrestling as just a business, nothing else and has zero passion for the industry. I might be absurd but isn't that the wrong attitude? Some didn't even watch when they were growing up. I'm always with the statement, "You CANNOT do this job if you don't love it." What do you think, JR?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I find it challenging to be successful in any business that one isn't passionate about.

    • dakethesnake1 Asks: Hey Jim- been a while. Speaking of this current big lawsuit against WWE with a lot of former talents included, there are those who are surprised with some of the names on the list. Most of which I have heard of and seen wrestling before. The only name that actually surprised me was Don Leo Johnathan. I thought he had already died. I have been watching wrestling since the mid 60s and thought he retired in that time period. If he is still living about how old is he close to 100? Thanks and keep up the great work.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I assume that you can Google Don Leo Jonathan and get his info. I have wasted no time on this lawsuit whatsoever. It feels like a money grab to me.

    • Clarence E Welker Asks: Greetings from a muggy Wilmington, NC. JR! I hope you and yours are well and that all your current endeavors are fruitful. I have the pleasure of meeting DDP and Kevin Nash this weekend. I`ll be sure to tell them Hello from you. Question; The CWC is rolling along nicely and even with some missteps in the ring here and there it seems to be a solid show and idea. In your opinion will Vince embrace this type of idea on RAW or will the he shy from it. It seems to be a hit with the fans and a much needed injection. As always thanks for all you do for all of us!
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I don't know the long term plan for the CWC talents but if some of them get hot they will undoubtedly be utilized in the most advantageous way possible. However I don't see WWE having another tournament the nature of what we are seeing on CWC

    • bigdan316 Asks: J.R, I watched the E:60 feature on NXT yesterday and while it is HHH's "baby" in some ways it's yours too. HHH is a "Jim Ross guy" and while he wouldn't come right out and say it he had to have considered your emphasis on building future stars which you did as head of Talent Relations when you signed guys like Brock,Cena,Orton etc. not to mention having a place to develop them like you did with OVW so I hope that you feel just as much satisfaction in the success of these young men and ladies as HHH does
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Our success in WWE was always a team effort but thanks for the mention. The future of wwe rests in the new stars that they develop and cultivate.

    • DBob Asks: Time to sue Vince again, I see. Any thoughts on wrestlers that started in other groups, never took care of themselves and have many off-court fights etc. going after WWE for head trauma?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I haven't read all the details of the most recent wrestler law suit against WWE but it well could be another attempt to create a payday for talents and the lawyer who seemingly is hellbent on gathering up some WWE cash for himself.
