• glsentinel Asks: One of the things I love about New Japan is the fact that World Title matches take place in one-on-one scenarios with basic rules almost 100% of the time. WWE, on the other hand, seems to use multi-man and gimmick matches fairly often in their World Title matches. What is your opinion on these title match scenarios?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Multiple person matches are to frequent in all promotions IMO.

    • undertaker4ever Asks: Hey JR Regarding WWE using Kurt Angle after his 2017 HOF Induction, how about matches against in no particular order Taker, Nakamura if he's brought up to the main roster, and AJ Styles and after Angle's in ring career is over, he's made RAW GM. Your thoughts????
      J.R.'s Answer:

      The options are limitless for a match or two utilizing Kurt.

    • roadpigjohn@gmail.com Asks: HI. JR Recently Steve Austin invited to his Podcast Paul Roma. I remember him in WWF and then in WCW as a very agile and very goo mic skills for a wrestler at that time. I would like to know how was your experience while working with him.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I really did not work with Paul Roma that much but I don't recall any negative issues wth him whatsoever. Talented wrestler who was fundamentally sound and had a terrific look.

    • MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR Do you think there could ever be a David Arquette situation but it actually work or is it just doomed to fail no matter who no matter what?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I'm not feeling that one. Sorry.

    • Jeremy Samples Asks: Looking forward to attending both Orlando Ringside shows! Are your BBQ products available at the shows? Also, with Baseball season coming up, do you follow the sport? Any favorite teams?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      We hope to have some products on sale at our Orlando shows but that;s still a bit up in the air. I generally tag into baseball during the playoffs so I don;t have a dog nt the hunt right now.

    • Hotty Toddy Asks: Your thoughts on GSP making his return to UFC? Who would like to see him in the Octagon with?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      UFC, like WWE, needs all the main event attractions that they can muster so getting GSP back is huge. I;d love to see him fight Bisping or Nick Diaz.

    • Dustin G. Asks: Hello J.R.! As a big WCW/Goldberg fan I have enjoyed having him back and what WWE has done with him. I have always felt Goldberg's Summerslam elimination chamber match was a missed opportunity. (When he was stopped by a HHH sledgehammer) I realize the ending of that match likely added PPV buys to the next month's show...but I feel like it hurt Goldberg's momentum. Do you think that the rest of his run might have went differently had they just let him dominate that match? Thank you for taking the time to read our questions.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      That doesn't stand out to me but we did not do a great job with Bill on his first WWE run which was truly unfortunate and honestly uncalled for in hindsight.

    • Boomer Sooner Asks: JR, sad to hear about the death of Nicole Bass. She was bitter for years over her firing from the WWE, which was on your watch. She said a lot of things about why she was fired but what was your reasoning? did you fire Nicole because she couldn't wrestle, or wouldn't wrestle men, or because she had issues with the boys on the road?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Agreed... it was sad to hear of Nicole's passing. I never had any issues with her to any degree. Her skill set was not what we needed at that time for her to expand her TV role from bell to bell. Hr casting simply had run it;s course based on her skills.

    • Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: I remember asking you how difficult it was to see Texas Football who were not succeeding under coach, Charlie Strong. Now that coach, Strong is in UCF, and Tom Herman is with the Texas Football, my question is do you think the Texas Longhorns poses a threat to your Oklahoma Sooners in terms of competition? To me it seems like coach Herman is a competitive coach who is going to make Texas Football better again, him and his coaching staff would help Texas Football to become a National Champion. Thanks.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I have no desire to see Texas win a national title in any sport. I am an Oklahoma Sooner fan. We welcome the competition.

    • BuStA607 Asks: You are known for a ton of famous commentary calls over the years, but one that gets forgotten and is one of the first one I remember as a child was Horowitz wins, Horowitz wins when Barry finally won a match. Do you remember if you were actually surprised at the time because your commentary always seems genuine? Also would love to hear Barry horowitz on your podcast!
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I did the Horowitz voiceover in post production as in the studio after it was taped. It was a fun moment that seemed to have resonated more than most of us even considered.
