• Kanyon Asks: Hello Jr. Where do you see TNA Impact Wrestling now,and do you feel they can still compete with WWE with Anthem taking over the company.Even if they have lost some of there stars like the Hardys.Or do you think it will be difficult for Impact too ever be competion for WWE.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Impact Wrestling still has ample work to do but it seems like they are endeavoring to do so. They must build new, young stars and steer the course of doing great weekly tv. It's along journey for them.

    • Hotty Toddy Asks: Since WWE drew a great crowd in the Alamodome for the Royal Rumble, do you think WWE should hold more events in stadiums besides WrestleMania?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Possibly but it seems like it might be a long shot.

    • HiteshKK Asks: Hi Jim I hate it when people use flipping dave meltzers match list ratings to say this legend wasn't so great how many dave meltzer 5star ratings has he got. Or this person sucks in the ring. This is what i heard from people criticising Hogan, Alexa Bliss, Miz, Goldberg among others. Yet it was great characters and storylines that have always brought the most success not in ring. Do you think internet dirtsheets by meltzer and keller (who have never booked a wrestling company or worked a single match in their life) have brain washed people into their way of thinking and spoilt the industry? I mean ironically Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin, Ric Flair and so many others would never give out star ratings, doesnt that tell you something.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Don't think that anyone is being brainwashed to any significant degree. Fans, like society, are highly opinionated and somewhat defiant.

    • Robertmcq Asks: I'm anxious for Slobberknocker. Since you've been in the business so long do you plan to cram everything into one book or do you plan to do a few books over different eras like chris Jericho did
      J.R.'s Answer:

      No way to do our story justice with one book.There will be others or so we think.

    • Robertmcq Asks: Who do you think will induct Jim Cornette when he and the midnight express gets inducted? I would think Heyman.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I have no idea. Could be several but Heyman would likely be a long shot.

    • bigdan316 Asks: J.R, Just read the newest blog and I felt when you mentioned Charlotte Flair you had the same kind of pride you would if it was your own daughter regarding her success seeing as you're somewhat an honorary member of the Flair family. I also would like to say I'm looking forward to your book now if we could only get one from the Undertaker someday.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      We've worked diligently on our book, SlobberKnocker, and hope that you will enjoy it. Charlotte is like a family member as I've known her for her entire life.

    • El_Diablo Asks: Howdy J.R.- I was in attendance at WM 33 in Orlando and consider your entrance and approach to the announcer table to be a great example of how "dealing with adversity and choosing to move forward with life" can be achieved. For anyone who has been through difficult circumstances, your resolution to overcome tragedy and continue to be productive, both creatively and professionally, should serve as healthy inspiration. I'll save my wrestling question for another day... I just wanted to speak up and give something back to you, as you have done so much for the fans over the years, especially via this unique interaction opportunity here on your website. Best wishes to you regarding your new WWE run and future successes.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Thanks for the kind words but I can never replay the fans for what they have gifted me the past 40+ years.

    • Boomer Sooner Asks: JR, it was reported in the Hollywood Reporter that Sony/Tri Star wants to option 'Pandemonium", a proposed life story of Vince McMahon. Obviously it could make a hell of a movie. Who would you recommend they consider casting as Vince? and assuming the movie goes to at least a bit into the Attitude Era, who should play Good Ol'JR? Surely the scene where Vince brings mild mannered Jim Ross the black cowboy hat and says, "I want you be JR!" is is a dramatic big screen movie moment :) Boomer Sooner
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Excited for the VKM film as it should be a classic story. Anxious as the next guy  to see who is cast. Any average, stocky guy can play "JR"
