• bigdan316 Asks: J.R, This buzz over where Kenny Omega will end up reminds me so much of the 1996 Brian Pillman tug-of-war between WWE,WCW & ECW somewhere I'm sure the "Loose Cannon" is watching with a smile on his face.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      There are some similarities. Hopefully Kenny's story has a happier ending.

    • caseypelsinger Asks: JR. I was just reading an article on the best and worst WWE contracts, and it made me think. During your time in talent relations, did you find there was a lot of discontent or discord around talents who have similar roles within the company but substantially different pay? I remember you saying at one time you had issues with Jesse when you were both with WCW around that issue. When you ran talent relations, how did you keep that from killing morale?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      One addresses pay issues confidentially and honestly but there were always issues matters discretionary pay. Being upfront and honest always worked best but in the long run but keeping everyone happy wasn't realistic.

    • Vernon_Ace Asks: J.R., I have been watching some old UWF episodes from 1986. Jay Smith was your co-host for a few weeks. I know Jay Smith went by Jay Clayton when he was a wrestler. He was pretty good and seemed to have a lot of potential. Around 1975 he and Danny Hodge were U.S. tag team champions I believe. He did not have a long wrestling career. Do you know why his wrestling career ended so relatively soon?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I don;t recall but it could have been because of injuries.

    • JOHNNYELP Asks: J.R., did you or anyone else in Mid South and WWE have issues with Iron Mike Sharpe's regarding his OCD/compulsive showering? I saw the Jim Cornette and Don Muraco interviews referencing Sharpe. Thanks!
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Issues? Not at all. It was like Mike having OCD. It was what it was...no harm no foul.

    • Joeymurphy97 Asks: hi Jim do you think the undertaker will ever face john cena at wrestlemaina or SummerSlam before the undertaker retires or do you think the match will go down in dream match territory like the undertaker vs sting ?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I'd be surprised at the end of Taker's career that he hasn't had a one off versus Cena.
