• jasmeet Asks: Do you think the ministry of darkness will return?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Likely around the time I stop wearing a black hat and get my weight down to a buck sixty.  That would be a no.

    • dizzy dice brumley Asks: hello J.R.............Do you do any of the cooking in your restaurants?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      No. I do however do my fair share of tasting! My wife and I were deeply involved in th planning of the menu and the recipes utilized in the restaurant, however. I do make plenty of table visits to make sure our guests are happy. I love our food and refuse for our restaurants to be a "gimmicky" eatery with only so-so food...essentially having more sizzle than steak....so to speak.

    • Marko--V Asks: For years you've always put over Undertaker BIG TIME on commentary for WWE, I know many have said they have, but if I'm not mistaken you were announcing for WCW at the same time Taker was there as "Mean" Mark Callous, did you think he would become a huge star in the business then? Did you see it in him to be as successful as he has, working on top for nearly 20 years now?

    • Andres.C Asks: Heya JR this is Andes Contreras from Los Angeles,California my question is if you think WrestleMania would ever be held in england or any other country beside U.S.A
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Wrestlemania has been held twice in Canada which is obviously outside the USA but I don't think I would bet on 'Mania ever being held in the UK due to the time differences.  'Mania needs to go live in the States at 8 eastern time.

    • TheAcceptableWarrior Asks: Is Shawn Merriman nuts????, You in the pro wrestling industry have seen the consequences better than anyone of Athletes ignoring injuries and the results when they do. Should he just have the surgery and hope for a return by playoff time?, and even with him in the lineup do the Chargers have the team that can beat New England in January?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Merriman is without question a warrior but I would have suggested that he heed the doctor's advice especially if Jim Andrews said do the surgery. The Chargers are really talented but saying today that they will supplant the Pats, Indy, or even the Steelers would be an outright guess.

    • jleedude0415WWE Asks: Hey JR, I was wondering, how come the WWE doesn't keep a storyline going for years? I'm not talking about a real storyline or whatever, but like when the WWE paired Taz and yourself up, did they not think that people wouldn't remember that yourself and Taz had a brutal storyline back about 8 years ago. Or back when the Big Show made his redebut at No Way Out 2008, remember when Shane McMahon broke up the fight between Big Show and Floyd Meaweather, well they had a huge storyline back then also, and you could even hear a person in the audience yelling "Which Way Did He Go?" I hope you can answer these!
      J.R.'s Answer:

      It was brutal alright,  in the eyes of the TV viewer.  I think generally speaking that many storylines have a shelf life and simply loose interest. An Austin-Mr. McMahon storyline would be one of the exceptions.

      J.R.'s Answer:

      WWE 24/7 is a great value at about $8 per month. I am sure the Monsoon/Heenan material will be fully utilized in time. Don't agree that King has lost his edge.  You have discovered WWE 24/7 now I suggest you discover spell check on your computer. :)

      J.R.'s Answer:

      You can't be serious. This is a subjective list and is just a correct as anyone else's list. I will say that HBK listed at #10 is questionable in my view. There are many Japanese wrestles listed which isn't a bad thing as a large contingent of them are ultra talented but the average American wrestling fan isn't familiar with them.

    • Kevin808 Asks: Hi JR, I've been a WWE fan for 17 years and I'm a big fan of Howard Finkel, do you think he has a chance to ever be inducted into the Hall of Fame (and become the NEEEEWWWW WWE Hall of Famer, The Fink !) ?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      It's always good to hear from the Fink's relatives and, yes, I absolutely think Howard Finkel should be inducted into the WWE HOF and 09 would be a great time. Who would induct The Fink,  Bob Backlund?

    • comanchebeef Asks: Hello JR. You rule as a commentator. I live in the great town of Lawton, OK. As a child I grew up in Irving, TX & attended the Sportatorium every weekend to watch WCCW. My father was a good friend of Gentleman Chris Adams. They worked out at the same gym in Irving (Wag's Gym). Chris Adams would always give my father tickets to the shows.I am wondering if you have any current info on my other favorite commentator Marc Lowrance. I always thought he was great. I also miss referee Bronko Lubich (R.I.P). By the way, Lawton needs a JR's Family Bar-B-Q.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      We have people looking for a Lawton location for J.R.'s Family BBQ and hope to open one there perhaps in 2009.

      I have not heard any thing of Marc Lowrance in quite some time but perhaps others have and can update us.  There is no doubt that at one time WCCW was a helluva organization and was a wild place to work.
