• Hotty Toddy Asks: I really love the concept of the G1 tournament. I first watched it last year and I did my first bracket this year. It's like wrestling's March Madness which is pretty cool. What do you think about the whole concept when you first heard about it? Did you know about this tournament before you became close to NJPW?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Because booking is usually the number one culprit of rasslin critics, the tournament is episodic in nature and the scoring system is relatable as in any main stream sport.

    • jakefromstatefarm_116 Asks: How confident are you in Lincoln Riley as head coach for OU? He was great as an offensive coordinator without a doubt.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Lincoln Riley is going to be a great, head coach at OU! Guaranteed.

    • KippyB Asks: Hello Mr. Ross, hope all is well and looking forward to hearing you call the Mae Young Classic. I'm writing in response to a question another fan sent in a while back regarding tag team placement. Lance Storm once said that the babyface team was positioned in the top left corner so that the hard camera would have a clear shot of the outside babyface teammate's face as he played to the crowd, encouraged his teammate, etc. I don't know if this is accurate but it seems logical. Anyway, thought this might help. Best wishes.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Good info...makes sense but that's not surprising coming from Citizen Storm.

    • Longtime guy Asks: JR I think Like Harper is very good, and nothing against Erick Rowan, but it seems creative has nothing for these guys at this point. I think they could have proven more valuable as part of the Wyatt Family if they'd stayed there, maybe even a couple more years. What would you do to help them maximize their value at this point? Thanks as always.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Harper is underutilized IMO and has main event skill sets. Rowan needs more ring time to catch up to Harper.

    • Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: Now that TNA is under a new management, do you think it is time for them to have 12 PPV'S a year? Thanks.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Absolutely not. Roster  isn't ready for that commitment.

    • MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR. From what I've seen of The Mae Young Classic I love you and Lita together. I always felt Lita was the most underrated of announcers. Even though she will say she sucks at it and it was never more then just a chance to get back on the road for her so as to not go stir crazy at home waiting to get cleared for her neck injury. Even though I have no clue as to if she would even be interested in it I would have loved her to have been Michael Strahan's replace on Live With Kelly instead of Ryan Seacrest.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Lita did a stellar job with me on 'The Mae.'

    • MitchB Asks: Mr Ross, I have heard both versions, but I wanted to ask you. The match between Manny Fernandez and Invader 3. I'm sure you know which match I mean as it is very memorable. I have heard it was a work, but I have also heard that it was a shoot because Manny was upset that Invader 3 was involved in the death of Brusier Brody. I heard he wouldn't let anyone in the shower area at the time of the conversation and was serving a receipt. What is the story? Work or shoot? Thank you, Mitch
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Sorry but I don;t know enough about this matter to adequately comment.

    • kennyraf Asks: Hi JR. I flew into Orlando from NYC to see the Mae Young Classic and I had a great time. Do you think this will be a yearly event? I sure hope so...it would be something for me to look forward to. Maybe the most memorable part of the two nights was during a match you didn't even call. The crowd made Jazzy Gabert into a superstar based on the reaction that she got during the 6 woman tag on night two. The reason Jazzy stood out in my opinion is she seemed to have more of a "character" than the other women did, and she truly does look like she can kick butt and take names!
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Happy that you enjoyed 'The Mae' as did I. I hope that its an annual event but I don't know. Jazzy would be a great addition to the roster, IMO

    • bigdan316 Asks: J.R, If Braun Strowman had been in Mid-South would Bill Watts have made him champion given his look and freakish strength and athleticism?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Cowboy would have loved Strowman.  What's not to love?

    • spuzzlightyear Asks: You must be relieved not to be recieving question after question about when "Legends Roundtable" is coming back, since there's a lot of similar programming/podcasts similar to that style. A question, what influences do you see in today's programming that people got from it?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Gosh I;m not sure as to your question but understanding the past helps everyone navigate the future.
