  • MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR Is there any truth to the story That The American Badass character came because Hall And Nash were Pushing and Pushing The Undertaker to go to WCW and knowing he wasn't going to be The Undertaker over there so he tried out a new character and he convinced Vince to let him do it? At the last minute though he decided to resign with WWE but Vince liked it so much he kept it?
    J.R.'s Answer:

     Total BS IMO

  • MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR With WWE Bringing War Games back at The Next NXT Takeover being you and not in WWE of course do you think the results of this match will affect them using it again? What I mean is seeing the 2 teams I see it being a painful to watch train wreck because of styles clashing Like the Ultimate Warrior Hercules Hernandez matches. If that ends up being the case and they stink up Houston do you think that is it for War Games or it doesn't matter?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    I'm anxious to watch War Games in Houston. We all need to allow it to play out before we start tearing it apart, not that you are.

  • mattdestasio Asks: A lot of fans are torn on Brock Lesnar’s title reign right now. Do you think it’s helping the overall product to have the title reserved for only big events, or is it taking away from the product having the champion work such a limited schedule?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Lesnar is the biggest sta in WWE so it makes sense for  him to be positioned where he is.

  • Jackson1256 Asks: Was Bobby Heenan a guy who kept up with what was going on in other promotions? Did he know your work from WCW when you came to WWE? Did you ever try to get him to come back full-time after WCW closed in 2001?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Bobby casually kept up with the other wrestling companies but wasn't obsessed with what they were doing.

  • Taker1993 Asks: Hi Jim, I realize that rumors can start on the internet and never come to light but with all the talk of the undertaker possibly returning soon do you believe that it's possible? Thanks
    J.R.'s Answer:

    This Undertaker matter is really very simple, until he says that he;s officially finished then he isn't.  Case Closed.

  • BuStA607 Asks: How much do ratings and attendance numbers effect a champions title reign?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Logic says that those factors should count for a great deal as it is a bottom lne driven buisness.

  • BuStA607 Asks: Could a real ufc style fight between jones and lesnar be sanctioned at Wrestlemania? I think that would be the bigger draw if possible.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    I'd guess no officially for a MMA fight but yes if it were a traditional WWE production.

  • Dexter Sixx Asks: Hey there Jr, hope your day (or night) is going well, I was re-watching Unforgiven '98 on WWE Network. Wondering what it was like sitting in front of/calling the first inferno match Kane/Taker? One other inquiry as well if I may. Regardless of brand/current association would you rather see Paul Heyman with Braun or Shinsuke and why? Hope all is well. Thank-you for your time. Grew up on your voice during the Attitude Era,,,as I got older I appreciated your lexicon even more. Thanks for the time and effort and all the amazing memories (which are still being made mind you just in other venues.)
    J.R.'s Answer:

    The Inferno match was HOT at ringside to say the least.  Heyman isn't leving Lesnar nor is he going go absorb another talent to manage at this time, I'm thinking. Nakamura needs to continue to refine his English and Strowman doesn't need a 'manager' IMO.
