• vman Asks: Hey JR big fan of your site and products. JR, in regard to Rusev- cena do you not think it's a better idea for rusev to go over someone else and keep his streak until wm 32 in dallas in opposed to jobbing to cena at wm 31? I meanif cena had a drawn out story line of getting older and washed up and rusev gets the wwe title at say survivor series and is the foreign monster heel champion with a near two year undefeated streak and have cena win next years rumble and become the 16 time world champion at wm 32 by pinning rusev after two years of a streak and wearing usa shorts etc, long term that would be so much better?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I'd love to see Rusev cheat his way to win after win until WM32 when he gets into a major, high stakes, championship match.

    • MrMondayNight Asks: Hi Jim. Wondering what your thoughts are on 'The Notorious' Conor McGregor and what you think the outcome of his fight with Jose Aldo will be? Thanks.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      He seems to be an excellent fighter who's gifted in the art of self promotion which all promoters love. He's an intriguing athlete who I think is poised to make a huge impact in UFC.

    • the tennessee stud Asks: JR, was wondering what you think of the WWE deciding to induct Madusa Miceli into their HOF. Given that you were in charge of Talent Relations at the time that she quit and showed up on WCW Nitro with the WWF Ladies title and threw the belt in the trash. I mean is that behavior that should be rewarded with a company HOF ring years later?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I can't nor will I live in the past. Madusa is deserving of her induction and I am happy for her. What happened years ago is a non issue to me today. I stopped worrying or stressing over things completely out of my control long ago.

    • jakefromstatefarm_116 Asks: I don't know if you've ever watched their product but where would you rank the Knoxville territory, Continental Championship Wrestling/Southeastern Championship Wrestling among the other territories?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I did not see that much of it at the time but I know that at times the Knoxville territory did good business and that they had some outstanding wrestlers pass through there.

    • Ray-Ray Asks: I have a Fastlane Question. Randy Orton did a "run in" on Seth Rollins IN FULL WRESTLING GEAR!! If Orton is so mad at Rollins, Why bother changing into his gear? Are we supposed to believe no one saw Randy in the locker room or back stage? Orton in his gear didnt make any sense. That completly took me out of the moment.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Interesting point...perhaps that was Orton's choice of fighting attire. You make a good point nonetheless.

    • Dan K in SC Asks: IMO, this has been an awful 2 weeks for The Road To WrestleMania. The match between Daniel Bryan & Luke Harper I expected to go about 10 minutes. With 2 minutes of commercials after the start, the match went only 5:22. J.R., I believe you are in a better place & its anywhere but there. Even if you were still there, wouldn't it grind on you that there isn't much substance to most of the matches these days?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I'm not as critical as are you but I will say that WWE needs to continue to look for momentum leading into WM. I'm very content with my life and not being on the road every week.

    • bigdan316 Asks: J.R, When the day comes that William Regal is given his Hall Of Fame due who do you see as being the perfect choice to induct him? I'd go with Triple H,Steve Austin or Mick Foley myself
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I'd suggest HHH would be the perfect fit to induct Mr. Regal.

    • razzamanu Asks: Hey JR, Can't say how much I love your podcast. Just wanted to purpose a point around Roman Reigns being in the main event of Wrestlemania. Obviously there's plenty of more hardcore wrestling fans that have such a problem with him. Although he's not the greatest in ring or on the mic, I honestly feel the biggest problem that he faces is that fans just simply haven't been given a chance to become emotionally invested in him and therefore struggles to connect with people. Love to know what you think about this and it as I feel that emotional investment is a large part of the popularity behind Bryan and Ziggler. Ryan from the UK
      J.R.'s Answer:

      My take on Reigns is to allow this to play out and to see how he does. I am not smart enough to predict the future. Is he ready? Likely not 100% but he's young, athletic and will continue to grow.

    • hahacharade Asks: Hey JR - Do you think Brock's rumored recent blow-up highlights the danger of part-time performers given large scale roles in today's WWE? How does the WWE protect itself from folks with other primary focuses (Lesnar, Jericho, Rock) or those who are simply part-timing it at this juncture (Undertaker, Sting)? Do you feel the time has come for them to take a different direction other than devoting title reigns and significant storyline time to such individuals?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I do not feel that Lesnar's actions, what ever they were, will affect any part time talents. WWE or any promotion should utilize talents that help them whether it be part time or full time. I'm not in favor of a part time champion but I'm also not in that loop nor can I affect change.

    • Anthony Squellati Asks: Hey JR long time fan miss you on tv. First off i apologize if youve answered this before and answered it multiple times im new to your site and just want your opinion on this issue. I wanna talk about the hell in a cell ppv match between dean ambrose and seth rollins. First of all i liked the match it was a good match and both guys looked great I thought. I know announcers are fed their lines so im not blaming them entirely. However something was said that night that made me very angry. Rollins and ambrose are fighting ontop of the cell and cole asks jbl if he ever remembers a hell in a cell match that started up top and i was like what? then jbl said no and i screamed at my tv WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they had mick on the raw before hell in a cell talking about what the cell did to him, and since all wwe employees have access to the network they can go back and watch king of the ring 98. I just thought that the comentary was very disrespectful toward micks legacy especially since that man perhaps more than any other has given everything to the business of wrestling. I would like to know your thoughts. I love your work love your show keep it up boomer sooner
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I choose to not be critical of anyone's announcing and know that all announcers are following the instructions that they are given on the spot or prior to air. I'd suggest keeping that in mind and not becoming too wrapped up in that matter.
