• Willie_Dominguez Asks: During the Monday night wars, WCW would reair immediately after it showed live, which was during RAW. Why did they make this decision which, to me, hurt it's ratings and aided WWE(F)?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I'd assume to help increase their viewership and lessen WWE's. I thought the replays were smart.

    • dakethesnake1 Asks: Hey J.R Hope all is well in your house. You probably did not read my Tweety Bird to you so I thought I would tell you here. Thanks very much for your podcast/ interview with Tony Schiavone. It was great just to hear his voice again after so many years. Must be great to have friends in high places as you do. Keep up the great work
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Thanks and please keep listening to the Ross Report and spread the word!

    • Frey Asks: Despite you making your disinterest in TNA public, if you were to have complete control of a company like it with the financial troubles and other issues going on with it such as how the talent is used, booking, etc.. what would be some initial steps you would take to turn the company around in a positive way?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      No reason to comment on TNA as I've made myself clear that I have no desire to return pro wrestling full time much less take over rebuilding a company.

    • leroybmtz Asks: Great job on the Podcast, I am a loyal listener! Thanks for all the hard work and being the voice of wrestling as I was growing up. My question is this, maybe you can touch on this on the Ross Report, what are your thoughts on the Mr. McMahon is dead/limo story line? In your opinion, had the real life tragedy with Benoit not occurred, what could have been the result of the McMahon angle?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Wasn't a fan of the storyline with or without the tragic Benoit component. The storyline was totally unbelieveale.

    • Jackson1256 Asks: Any chance you would get Jim Herd or Kip Frey on your Podcast? I have never heard either guy interviewed after their WCW days ended. Which guy in your opinion did a better job running WCW?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I've lost touch with both so I don't know.

    • pennfan82 Asks: J.R. I love the Podcast. Its been years since I watched wresting regularly. I turned it off the night that Lita was thought to be pregnant with Kane's baby. At that point I realized just how ridiculous it was becoming and stopped watching. Recently I've seen a bunch of wrestling documentaries on Netflix that eventually lead me to your Podcast and then Stone Cold's podcast, etc. Even though I don't watch anymore, I still enjoy hearing about wrestling. For my question: Have you tried to get Bret Hart on your podcast yet? Do you plan to?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Bret has been invited but it's up to him and his schedule. He's welcome any time we can schedule it.

    • kyledow Asks: Hey JR. Sorry I didn't include more info in my last post, the details were in the one I sent that didn't get posted. The visual distinctions between shows I was referring to was how WWE visually presents Raw, SD!, and PPVs on TV. You had mentioned in your blog that you thought it was positive adding Tom Phillips to the SD! broadcast team which helps make the show sound different than Raw. Aside from the ring skirts being different, WWE doesn't do much any more to make the shows different from each other, or the PPVs for that matter, from a visual standpoint. I'd just like to get your thoughts on it. Thanks!
      J.R.'s Answer:

      There are many obvious albeit subtle things WWE could do to economically change the look of Smackdown vs. RAW. The shows sounding different is a major, positive change. Using different colors on ring posts, mat cover, etc all would help. EZ fixes all.

    • Shawn031091 Asks: Hey JR , Do you think that Zuffa ever gets into pro wrestling game. I know Dana White would never mix Real sport with Entertainment, but Zuffa as the parent company that the fertittas own could seperate brands
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Hell, no. They're too smart for that.

    • rossgraham Asks: Hey Jim I am cooking for family at the weekend who aren't vegetarian but I came up with a traditional british recipe with an american twist that could be useful. Beef Wellington is a fillet steak wrapped in puff pastry. Best way is to use a roasting hot pan THEN add your oil. Brown your meat on both sides then top and bottom. use a BBQ brush (or pastry brush) and layer on JR'S Main event mustard to add a kick up the ass. It's really important that you do this just as the fillet is straight out the pan. Fry chopped mushrooms in the frying pan (no need for oil as the water that drains from the mushrooms will cook them). Layer four strips of bacon onto Saran Wrap (cling film in UK) and spread your dried mushrooms over the wrap and then the fillet and wrap up tight. Place in fridge for 20 mins. Use another piece of Saran Wrap and roll out a piece of puff pastry, I use store bought, and roll up your fillet in the pastry. Wrap tight and seal up both ends of the fillet with the pastry so it's wrapped tight. Egg wash with 1 egg yolk. Sprinkle salt and pepper onto the pastry and bake in an oven at 200 degrees for 40 mins. I will post more recipes as they come!
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Sounds good...best of luck.

    • harleyrider Asks: Any chance you can evet get Randy Orton for a podcast? You have a background w/ him by signing him and hes very outspoken and funny and I think if you'd be allowed to do it,itd be great.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Unlikely....WWE has yet to approve any guest to appear on my podcast.
