• Vocey Asks: What are your thoughts on the 'kiss me arse' match that Sheamus and Ziggler will have at Extreme Rules. There's no doubt that the talents involved will create a good contest as both are very entertaining in there current roles, but what does the stipulation add?? It just seems to be the kind of BS that makes it embarrassing to be a wrestling fan. On a happier note, glad to hear you and WWE may be having a working relationship again. Keep up the good work.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I don't know the rules but it fits the 'extreme' theme one has to think.

    • drice410 Asks: J. R., do you have any insight as to why many of the guys getting called up to the main roster lose their first name? Cesaro, Rusev and now Neville. Most people have a first and a last name. I don't understand the logic...
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I have no idea...I assume it's just a WWE, marketing thing.

    • kmoore59 Asks: Hi JR, I was listen to some shoot interviews from you, Jim Cornette, & The late Great Paul "Percy Pringle" Bearer, the other day on youtube and I thought they were very funny and entertaining, and I was wondering any chance that you and Cornette may consider do some together in the future?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Where did I ever do any shoot, TV interviews? I would love to do a show with JC any time and anywhere.

    • The1andOnlyJerseyman Asks: Two quick questions this time, Jim and they are not related. 1. Any chance Eric Bishoff will appear on a Podcast? 2. Are there wrestling personalities (no names necessary) who, for reasons other than who employs them, you would not have on the Podcast, e.g. they have their own agenda, they re-write history etc?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Eric has already been on muy podcast and if you subscribe for FREE at iTunes you won't miss a show but can still go back and listen to all my shows, over 60 of them if you choose.

    • jGREENandGOLD Asks: Hey JR - When are you coming to Boston for your RINGSIDE show - I see Baltimore and NYC on the schedule. Can Boston be far behind???
      J.R.'s Answer:

      The Agency Group in NYC and Nick Pampenella do all my booking and I'm sure that Boston is on their radar. I'm anxious to play there, too.

    • Wrestlefreak Asks: Hi JR. When you did the speaking tour in the UK, the London venue was the Leicester Square Theatre. I was not able to attend as the theatre has no wheelchair access. Could I request that the next time you come to London for a speaking event, you ask the organisers to choose a different venue? Thank you.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Good info but I have zero to do with the venues that I play for the various promoters that book me.  Thanks, nonetheless.

    • Rest In Peace Asks: Hi JR, I'd just like to offer a different perspective on striking with a closed fist. To me it makes sense since it enforces the fact that they are larger than life superstars and it takes more than some punches to take them down.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Interesting opinion but I still disagree, respectfully.

    • seanlang Asks: Good Afternoon Sir, Ok so by far IMO the best Wrestling Show so far in 2015 has been WrestleKingdom 9 with Wrestlemania 31 being a distant second. Wrestlekingdom was such a magical night that had everything, big time show in a stadium, with some of the best wrestling on the planet and of course having you announce the show just made it even better. So is there any chance again you will be doing anything with New Japan in the future? I really hope so because you working that show was such a cool moment
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I am open to broadcasting more NJPW events if they were to come my way. I have heard nothing of doing more since January.

    • brenterwin Asks: I also sent this message to the email on the site here, because I didn't know how best to reach you. Mr. Ross, I'm a LONG time fan of yours, back from your days in WCW, until your days of podcasting currently. I'm wondering if anyone has ever asked you to perform the ceremony in their wedding? My girlfriend and I finally decided to get married after dating for almost 5 years, and I've gotten her into wrestling. We both quote your famous quotes at each other quite a lot, and we're looking to do something outside of the box with our wedding. Neither of us are religious, so having a priest is not really one of our priorities, and while I have a few friends who can do the honors (evidently, it's very easy to get certified to do it), I'd like to step outside of the box. We're not looking at an eminent date or anything, as I just proposed to her this past week. We would certainly be willing to pay you and pay for your travel expenses, etc... and I have several connections in the twin cities here (MN) with clubs and venues, and could easily get you set up with a Ringside with Jim Ross show while you're here, to make it even more worth your while. If this is something that you would even remotely consider, please let me know and we could work out other details as needed. This is going to be an informal wedding, as her and I are both nerds at heart and are going to be having everyone dress up in whatever they want (we're going as two different Star Wars characters, and her dad is going to put on a Darth Vader mask for us, to give you an idea of the setting). It's just going to be a lot of fun and nothing traditional in the sense, because that's not who we are. Even if you can't find the time to do it, or can't even have time to respond, I'll always remain a fan of yours, as you've been a huge part of my childhood and early adulthood. I find it only fitting that you're there to be the voice of my last large step into adulthood. Forever your fan and friend, Brent Erwin
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I have never been asked to preform a wedding nor do I have any interest in dong such an important ceremony. Sorry.

    • Bad Influence 687 Asks: Besides the original ECW, was there another NWA or similar regional territory that was based out of Philadelphia?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Crockett ran Philly at times in the latter days of his promotion but Philly was a regular stop on the WWWF territory schedule.
