• Gabriel Justice Asks: Why Dr. Death Steve Williams was released from WWE in April 1999, after Wrestlemania XV? I Know the plans for the Doc was he competing with Steve Austin for the WWE Championship if he won the Brawl For All, This didn´t happen, But Dr. Death Surely would fit perfectly in the Hardcore Division, Rivalizing with the likes of Bart Gunn, Hardcore Holly, Steve Blackman and Al Snow, and he would be great in The Corporation, but why he was released/ or left in that time?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Injury issues necessitated Doc's release.

    • jakefromstatefarm_116 Asks: For the past sixty years, there would not be a week without a Goodson-Todman game show. Did you have a favorite Goodson-Todman game show growing up? My favorites are Family Feud and Match Game. We certainly need great TV producers like Mark Goodson and Bill Todman, don't you think?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I'm a Family Feud guy to this very day. Love Steve Harvey.

    • deanbracken Asks: Long time fan and thanks for platform and your time. My question is with Brock or Goldberg champ post mania whats your view on an interim champion a la ufc
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Not needed imo. I suspect Lesnar will have a more aggressive schedule after he wins the title for the final year of his current contract.

    • theoriginaldnh Asks: Hi JR. Perhaps I'm in the minority but I never particularly look forward to Wrestlemania. I don't like the "part timers" coming in for a big pay day taking up slots that I feel the year round talent deserves. Having said that of course I understand why they do it when it comes to people like Brock, Goldberg, Undertaker etc. But do 2 Mania slots really need to be filled by Shane + Shaq? Your thoughts?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I like the additional 'sizzle' that part timers or special guests bring. If someone is that great they won't be left out more often than not. If WM isn't your thing then simply don't watch.

    • MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR. Did you get a chance to see the first IMPACT under new ownership? It was everything people say is bad about WWE turned up too a BILLION. Jeremy Borash and Josh Mathews screaming at each other destroying the matches,the onesthey stayed quiet on were so over booked it reached almost comical,making EC3 look like an idiot and whenever somebody had a mic in their hand all they did was manure on all the wrestlers that were there pre new owners. Don't even get me started on the idiotic way they wrote out The Hardys.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I assume that you don't read my blogs here on the site because I covered my thoughts on Impact there.

      No, not at this time. Thanks, nonetheless.

    • Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: A person mentioned before in a question how it would be like for us to see Goldberg and Brock Lesnar as a tag team. I am thinking about a tag team match between the Undertaker and Sting vs AJ Styles and Samoa Joe. Do you think we might be able to see a tag team of the Undertaker and Sting? Thanks.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      No...considering that Sting is finished as an in ring talent.

    • TakerMania Asks: Hi JR, I have no problem with Taker vs Reings at WM. Its a fresh match up and hopefully WWE will use it for a heel turn for Reings. However seeing that Cena is available why not use him to face Taker? Fans have been calling for it, whats the issue? Perhaps saving it for Takers' last match?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      It simply wasn't the direction that WWE decided to travel but I don't know why.  The goal is to get Reigns over as Cena is already a made man. I see why WWE booked this as they did. It's hard for some Taker tans to accept that this WM isn't about the Deadman, in all due respect.

    • roadpigjohn@gmail.com Asks: Hi. JR What anecdotes you have while working with Billy Gunn? Are you able to invite him to your podcast? Thanks.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Athletic freak, funny guy, reliable and durable in ring hand who had a superb WWE run. He can still hang with most of today's talents.

    • Taker1993 Asks: Hi Jim, I don't see this wrestlemania match ending the career of the undertaker do you? in other words do you think this will be his last wrestlemania or not?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I do not think that this is going to be Taker's last WM. When Taker decides to retire it likely won't be a secret by any stretch.
