  • Longtime guy Asks: JR I enjoyed the Finn Balor piece. He mentioned during the first ever Universal Title match with Seth, he injured his shoulder. He contemplated letting the doctors stop the match, but decided to keep going. I know these guys are tough, but what happens when the determined winner of the title match cannot continue? Do they have a plan B, or how do they handle it? Thanks as always.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    The safety of the athlete is and should always be the top priority and if someone can't finish they generally have a plan B to consider.

  • Parlay_King Asks: How important is social media to you? I know the WWE likes to tout its social media trends during the match, but if you're tweeting constantly, are you really paying attention to the match?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    For any business learning to market themselves via social media is imperative in this day and time. That includes pro wrestling.

  • johnt Asks: I heard Dave Meltzer's podcast where he said Triple H has huge trust in William Regal and wants to bring him along to every level and essentially be Triple H's right hand man in the years to come. Meltzer said it appears Regal is going to have a massive role in the company alongside Triple H in the future. I'm curious your thoughts on what this means and the types of things Regal might be doing in the years to come.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Regal is a valuable asset to WWE specifically in the talent evaluation and scouting department which is where he will likely contribute the most.

  • MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR. Congrats. I read you and Nigel McGuiness are calling the Women's Tournament in The Summer. I'm just wondering what does the winner get with 2 women's titles already there?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    You can't believe every thing that you read online. This info is false.

  • MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR. I have a multi part question. What did you think of The House Of Horrors Match? Do you think it was made too much for the people watching on the network and not enough for the crowd at Backlash? Also do you think Bray Wyatt laughs too much?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Perhaps. Never thought that Bray Wyatt laughed too much but it is a unique question.

  • cdogg916 Asks: Howdy JR. More of a suggestion than a question. Last night, I had the opportunity to speak for a few minutes to Cody Rhodes and he was nice, personable, and he is running an insane schedule working for a variety of promotions. Between his schedule now, his WWE time, and the family lineage, I think he would make for an excellent guest on your podcast. Just food for thought.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Cody and I have talked about this multiple times and it's merely a matter of scheduling.

  • WHAT24 Asks: Any 411 on why one of the big beer companies didn't gobble up SC back in the day, commercials, billboards? I remember thinking man they are missing the boat on this $$. Hope you are doing well my friend.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Not sure why other than most companies usual objections to supporting the genre overall.

  • Arkon Asks: Hi JR. What's your opinion on the Bring it to the Table show on WWE Network? Do you think they show is being taken in the right direction? And what about the hosts, JBL, Graves and Rosenberg? Thank you so much in advance.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    I haven;t watched a complete episode but the snippets that I've heard were fine. What direction is it supposed to be traveling?

  • Steviejay99 Asks: Hi JR I have noticed on your site and on other Social media that people are suggesting that Roman Reigns be turned heel due to the fan reaction, for me the important thing is that Reigns gets a reaction, it means that people care about him one way or another, The bigger issue surely would be if he got no reaction at all.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    I think many fans are making too much of it as to whether Reigns is a hero or a villain. You're right, he elicits a reaction and Roman is a star, bottom line.
