• kcwrestling Asks: Long time fan. First time I have registered and submitted questions. We know wrestling has several hall of fames. Do u think Archie "The Stomper" Gouldie will ever get in any of them? During your career did u have any interactions with him? On a more personal level. While illegal substances are getting the most attention one of the causes of Carrie Fisher's death was sleep apnea. I struggle with sleep issues and I know u have. But I was stunned to hear it could contribute to death. Any thoughts about her or that issue. My prayer is you are doing well in that regard.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Hopefully The Stomper gets a Hall of Fame nod somewhere sooner than later. He;s certainly a deserving, territory wrester. Untreated sleep apnea can ut such a strain on one;s heart that it can kill you from a heart attack much like NFL HOFER Reggie White.

    • English Aussie Matt Asks: Hey there J.R. I've noticed in the online comments regarding Maria and Mike Kanellis' debut that so many people have taken issue with Mike using Maria's last name. My thought is that a name is just a name and that I'm sure WWE has a reason for not using Mike's last name. My question is why do you think fans now days make such an issue over such small things? In my opinion names don't take away talent so it really doesn't matter. Thanks for your time.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Social media has made many regular wrestling fans into 'experts' and the idea behind the Kanellis creative is to put heat on Mike using Maria. Pretty simple. They are villains and we are not supposed to 'like' them.

    • NikitaSantaMaria Asks: This may be a dumb question but I'm curious anyway. In this present dsy of social media, does wwe tell the superstars what to tweet or is it all up to the wrestler themselves to tweet anything related to the storyline they're involved in ??
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I don;t know but likely not telling the talents what to get out there but there's obviously times when talents tweets ae storyline oriented.

    • Jackson1256 Asks: How did you like working with Honky Tonk Man on commentary in the WWF? Would you ever get him on the Podcast?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Honky is a talented dude with a wonderful gift of gab and I had fun with him on commentary on th South African show. He has a standing invite to come on my podcast when schedules permit.

    • SoCalAex Asks: Hey JR, someone shared a link to me of an untelevised Flair Vs. Steamboat match from Landover, MD back in '89 (https://youtu.be/Ub6efQnQwgo) that they claim is better than their televised trilogy of matches I'm more familiar with. Unfortunately the video has no commentary so I was wondering if you've ever thought about recording your own commentary for this match. I feel like hearing you call the match would complement it perfectly. Thanks
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I've never seen it nor do i plan on adding an audio track to it. Our work in '89 will stand the test of time. I'm thinking.  I'd suggest tht Ric and Steamboat never had a 'bad' match.

    • MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR Do you think WWE Should have more of a handle on the superstars social media? I know the days of Verne Gagne buying out 2 floors in a hotel one for the heels and one for the faces are gone but... Like that picture Titus O'neil posted with Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman together without all the tape and everything on in Italy. Also now apparently Alexa Bliss hurt herself fooling around making a Youtube video backstage booty bumping with Nia Jaxx.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      It starts with the talents making good decisions and not the company babysitting adults who are learning a good living.

    • fred.reich75 Asks: Hey JR. Had WWE ever considered bringing back Wargames and the double ring? Blessings and thank you.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      While I was there, never seriously. I don't; know lately but I'd suggest not.

    • the tennessee stud Asks: JR now that Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregoe is official, whats your prediction for this fight? In pro wrestling you could sometimes see a bad matchup stylewise do big money, but Im not sure how seeing Mayweather run from Conor and win every round helps either boxing or MMA. Will you pay $100 to watch this on ppv 8/26?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      This event will easily go north of 2M PPV buys IMO. I will watch it in some form likely, with others. I bought many Tyson fights knowing they would Ikely end in less than 3 minutes.

    • POISON Asks: As an Oklahoma State Cowboy fan living in Norman, I'd be lying to say I'll miss Stoops. The Mullet vs Riley should be fun in the upcoming years, Go Pokes! P.s. really enjoy your sauces and ketchup
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Bedlam will always be fun no matter who the coaches are, IMO. Thanks for supporting our saucy efforts.

    • Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: There are some people who questions Lebron James overall NBA Finals losses, they always forget his performances during playoffs. People mentions that he is not going to be as better than Michael Jordan, but these people forgot how much value Lebron James has for his team, instead of comparing, they should appreciate what he has done in the NBA. He took an average Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA Finals back in 2007. He had an insane performances in the 2015, NBA Finals, and also when he won the NBA Championship in 2016. I have nothing against Michael Jordan, and I do believe that Michael Jordan was a great player, but Lebron James and his value for his team it speaks for itself. To me, Cleveland Cavaliers needs Lebron James which is more than Lebron James who needs the Cleveland Cavaliers. Lebron James has nothing left to prove, because he was supposed to win a Championship for the city of Cleveland, and he full-filled his accomplishments and dreams. Any Thoughts? Thanks. Have A Great Weekend.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      This topic is worn out and irrelevant IMO. It's a matter that discussion can't solve.
