    • theoriginaldnh Asks: Hi JR. Brock Lesnar destroyed Randy Orton at last years Summerslam. Typically you would expect a rematch, a chance for Orton to get revenge. yet they haven't gone near each other since. Any idea why that was? Many thanks
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I don't know other than that was simply not the creative direction the WWE decided to travel.

    • Hotty Toddy Asks: JR, it really upsets me that WWE doesn't even provide healthcare to it superstars. They risk their bodies every day of the week to entertain the masses. There is no excuse for that.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Independent contractors in America have the option to provide their own health insurance just as I do, for example. Plus, WWE pays for all their talent's medical bills as a result of on the job injuries.

    • MarSar Asks: JR... I was listening to Bruce Pritchard's podcast recently and the subject was Owen Hart. Bruce was very upfront at the beginning of the Show and said "we are gonna talk about Owen's career and I'm happy and Proud to do that. I loved the man like he was my brother and I miss him dearly. I will not talk about Kansas City, what happened that night, and any legal issues with Martha and WWE. I lived it.. It was one of the worst nights in my life period and certainly the worst night I've ever had in the wrestling business. I don't think about and I don't want to or feel the need to talk about it. I'm sorry if you can't understand that but I lived it. It was horrible beyond words" . You were ringside that night, obviously. I am wondering if you have similar feeling in not wanting to talk about and relive that night but instead would want to focus more on Owen's career in the ring?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I'd say that Bruce and I are on the same page on this matter.

    • RicardoD957 Asks: Dear JR, First of all I am glad to see you back home at the WWE. I will admit I have not been a fan of wrestling for anymore than 2 years (I'm 25) my family tried to steer me away but ultimately failed! I was watching Rock vs Austin at Wrestlemania 19, and I know from surfing the web and YouTube that he was taken to hospital the night before, and you were the one Austin contacted when it got bad and needed to go to the hospital. Did you know it was his last match at Wrestlemania 19? Cause from listening to the commentary of that match, I know you're a massive fan of Austin, but you really got into that night. Being a fan of soccer/football (Luton Town Football Club) I've experienced commentators get very emotionally into the game as us fans do, and when you called Austin the toughest son of a bitch on the WWE as he walked down the ramp, I had to hold back tears cause I knew what this man meant to not just you, but the entire world, it was heartfelt. On a little side note, look up Simon Pitts Luton, and you'll get what I mean when I say I've experienced commentators get really into it. May God bless you and grant you happy days. Yours faithfully Richard Hines From Luton, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Yes, I was aware that WM19 was Austin's last match and I tried very hard to put that out of my mind. It did not work.

    • SockableClaw Asks: JR it's awesome to hear you behind the mic again on WWE programming! How do you feel about Anthem Wrestling including your name in their angle between Josh Matthews and Jeremy Borash?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I must have missed it but no issues here. I'm pulling for Impact to grow and prosper.

    • JakeAlexander1995 Asks: Hey J.R.! Hope you're doing well, it was great seeing you call the UK title match at the Chicago takeover! With the football season approaching, I wanted to get your opinion on the deals made during the offseason, particularly that of Marshawn Lynch and Adrian Peterson as they find themselves on new teams for the 2017 season. What do you think we can expect from Lynch and Peterson this upcoming season? Also, what is your take on Dalvin Cook? Could he make a big impact with the Vikings?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I see both AD and Lynch being contributors for their new teams but not on a full time basis. They seem to be situational running backs.

    • seanlang Asks: I dnt get AXS TV in my area, so will I be able to watch the same feed with you on NJPW World and do you know if the live broadcast will be commercial free?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I have no idea as I do not subscribe to New Japan World. Sorry

    • Longtime guy Asks: JR if you were an NBA GM and you, and your team of evaluators ran a risk assessment on the drafting of Lonzo Ball, as good as he is....is it worth all that comes with it? Thanks as always
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Some teams will obviously think that Lonzo's Daddy's baggage is worth it. Those issues can be easily dealt with.
