• DBob Asks: Do you think the massive push for Asuka is a bit insulting to the RAW women? The ladies have been busting their stuff for years and while Asuka is a big thing she seems to be coming in to steamroll through the division.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Nope, not at all. She's a star and will make the other women be perceived better too.

    • Ishan Asks: Thoughts on the Okada/Omega trilogy of matches and where they rank historically ? Also, how good is Kazuchika Okada ?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Comparable to Flair vs Steamboat in 1989 but I'm not qualified nor is any one else to accurately rank where either of those rivalries 'rank' in history. It's too subjective IMO.

    • kbab Asks: Hi JR, for the record, Bischoff made a huge mistake not resigning you in 1994. You don’t leave John Madden a free agent in the prime of his career, just saying.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Going to WWE in 1993 was the best career move that I eve rmade. Worked out well for all.

    • kbab Asks: I really enjoyed your book. Will you write a book chronicling from 1999 to now? I think it would be a great read. I am glad you were not done calling Wrestling in 1999.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      A sequel to SlobberKnocker is being discussed. Better than 50/50 chance it will happen.  Thanks for reading SlobberKnocker

    • Niklas Asks: Hi Jim, I’ve got some questions for you. First, I have just litsned to your book and I really liked it. Will you be making a part two considering the timeframe of the ending? And if so when will I be able to enjoy it? And, now that Undertaker is retired will or have you tried to get him on the Ross Report? Would be a record breaking program. Regards Niklas Stockholm Sweden
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Thanks. How did you purchase my book in Sweden? We hope to do a sequel in the future. Taker is a private guy but we'll get him on the Ross Report some day.

    • Hotty Toddy Asks: JR, as an amateur griller, do you have any no-nos when it comes to grilling hamburgers and hot dogs on a Weber grill?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      My grilling no-no's include a dirty grill, inferior food products, cooking too hot, and the biggest of all might just be not paying attention.

    • 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

    • 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?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      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?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      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.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      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.
