• brudog56 Asks: Hey J.R., it was such a blast getting to meet you in-person in Sayreville, NJ last week! Even though I was nervous, you were so personable & easy to talk to. As a long-time fan whose met many in the business, I really appreciated that! Anyway, my question: Do you think it would be a good idea for WWE to make the first hour of RAW a studio show (much like last week) & then go live for the remaining 2 with less filler? I know they couldn't fly everyone to Stamford each week, but maybe they could tape content here & there while the boys are on the road during the week?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Thanks for coming to our show in Sayreville as it was a blast. Great venue and great staff...audience too. I don't expect USA to want WWE to change what they are doing as the network is paying WWE for three hours of live TV in an arena setting.

    • Jackson1256 Asks: When you had your production meeting prior to WM IX, how did that differ from prior PPV's you did in WCW? Were you told what the finishes were including what was going to happen with Hulk Hogan and Yokozuna?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      WWE meetings were much more detailed oriented.

    • bhowell24 Asks: I noticed WM isnt sold out yet, I was under the assumption that they always sold out in weeks or a few months? Am I wrong or is this normal?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Not unusual whatsoever and it will sell out well in advance IMO.

    • Mono Asks: What do you think about Mirko Crocop's return to the UFC? Do you see a future fight between him and Brock Lesnar? And what's going to happen when Crocop and Chael Sonnen bump into each other? Mirko has been saying for years that he's going to confront Chael for talking shit about him in interviews once he meets him.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      One never knows but he's likely back to score another nice payday or two.

    • rossgraham Asks: Recipe here. Season some braising beef with salt & pepper and JR'S seasoning, a cheap cut preferably. You want the beef marbled with some fat so that it doesn't dry out. Cover in flour and fry off the beef on a high heat to add colour and seal flavour. In a seperate pot fry off some smoked bacon. Add some veg, some onions, carrots, leeks, potato, whatever is at hand. Don't chop too fine, it's okay to be rough. Fry off veg for couple of minutes and add your beef. Add tomato purée, some herbs like thyme, garlic, basil. Add some vegetable stock liquid, enough to cover both meat and veg. Oven cook at 150-200 for 2 and 1/2 hours in your casserole dish or oven proof pot. Serves up to four.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Good stuff, Ross. Hope folks try your recipe.

    • BuStA607 Asks: When wrestlers are really popular with the fans but never get pushed what holds them back? Are there personal issues involved sometimes? I just see guys like Ziggler for example and don't understand what holds him back
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Could be a variety of reasons but I'm not there so for me to answer would just be a guess.
