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?
Total BS IMO
JMorgs Asks: Hi JR. Enjoying the book so far. Question that my wife asked me is the roles of Paul O'Brien and Scott Williams in the coming together of the book. Would you mind clarifying?
Scott interviewed me in Oklahoma for dozens of hours over several months time and we turned those audio recordings into a giant, transcript. Paul took the transcript, put his own touch to it and then he and I reviewed every word and I continued to write additional material as the new edit required.
Tom101 Asks: Do you think it is possible for someone who loves wrestling, and dreams of calling matches, to be successful today without a broadcasting degree?
In todays marketplace it is likely possible but not too probable.
Deanmurray1967 Asks: Mr. Ross;
I am a 50 year old Canadian and a avid follower of both college( sorry but GO BLUE ) and the NFL. I would be very interested in your memories and thoughts on Marcus Dupree as a player and on his situation during his time at Oklahoma.
Thank you Sir and God's blessing on you and your love Jan.
The ESPN 30 for 30 tells the Marcus Dupree story amazingly well. He was the most immensely talented running back that I ever saw on any level in any era. Plus, he's a friend and a damn good dude.
Boomer Sooner Asks: JR, losing to Iowa State at home was heartbreaking and seeing them plant an Iowa state flag on our 50 yard line was a disgrace! We think part of the problem was Bob Stoops wasn't at the game, he was on a recruiting trip with his son. The team wasn't used to him not being there and Riley doesn't have the locker room yet. You would never see a Stoops defense give up 25 points in the second half in Norman to any Cyclones team! This season is ruined!
Flag planting doesn't happen when the home team wins. End of story.
Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: Do you have any plans to invite Cm Punk (Philip Jack Brooks) or Daniel Bryan to your Jim Ross Podcast, to your Jim Ross Report, someday? Thanks.God Bless. Thanks.
Punk's been invited but has declined and I'd love to have DB on some day.
seminara Asks: Good evening, Jim!
Was curious to know, how do you think 80's Bobby Heenan would have fared as a manager in today's WWE? I know that with the exception of Heyman, managers haven't been used in WWE in years.
Excluding Paul Heyman, there;s not a better talker in the biz than Bobby Heenan and he would have killed on global TV without question. His timing is timeless.
the tennessee stud Asks: JR, Jerry Lawler was talking about Lance Russell on his podcast. He says Lance deserved/deserves to be in the WWE HOF. Even being in one territory he influenced a lot of wrestling broadcasters. It seems to me it would be a nice thing for Lance's family to see him honored and get a ring posthumously next year. Wouldn't you agree Lance is deserving of one?
Lance Russell absolutely belongs in every pro wrestling hall of fame in existence.
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?
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.
ymatsumoto Asks: Is it me or does Shinsuke Nakamura look a bit like Carlos Santana?
