• MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR. Just by the eyes test they are setting up a SHIELD reunion for Summer Slam the vs The Miz and The Mizterage Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel. If that is in fact where they are headed do you think it is too early like some do?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Hmm...I'n not feeling a complete Shield reunion as Reigns is seemingly on a different trajectory.

    • WHAT24 Asks: So how does the WWE keep the results from the MYC quiet until it airs in August?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Are they trying to keep it secret? I wasn't aware of that . With social media, nothing seemingly is secret.

    • MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR I have two questions about The Broken Gimmick. First is how would you handle The Situation with Anthem Entertainment and The Broken Gimmick? With Anthem deliberately dragging their feet getting a deal done and jerking people around saying they agreed to a deal but making up 10,000 excuses not to sign the contracts signing the rights over. If I were Vince I'd of just had them be Broken from the start. At Wrestlemania have Reby playing the piano Jeff with those gimmick eye contacts and Matt biting Enzo's ankle and then just wrote a check when Anthem sued. Also what do you think of the gimmick?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I don't know the details of the back story of this matter regarding who owns the IP of the Broken gimmick. No dog in the hunt. Always pulling for Matt and Jeff though.

    • fred.reich75 Asks: Rene Young is as organically over as any in ring superstar. With the very popular Talking Smack cancelled, could you see a way that a show like it or even Tuesday Night Titans can return to the Network with Rene? As always, blessings JR! The gym pics are inspiring!
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I'd surmise, "highly unlikely." Nonetheless Rene is talented and will stay plenty busy and has a bright future where ever she may be working.

    • LouLee7th Asks: Love your Q and A, thanks for always responding. Broadcasting question for you; we were at the Mae Young Classic Thursday and Friday, the Laith/Gabert seemed incredible, clearly the best match of both nights. As a broadcaster, when you call a match where the names aren't as known as others later in the show and they absolutely crush it, how does that impact your call? Does the fan in you come out? Are you more cautious? Are you more critical of the other matches later in the show? Thanks, Jim! PS: Thanks for an awesome show in Orlando, your fans will always love you!
      J.R.'s Answer:

      We interviewed all 32 women early in the week so by show time I had made an emotional investment in them as best as that time frame would allow. I prepared diligently for these 30 matches that Lita and I called in a 24 hour period. But, yes, the fan in me comes out and if it didn't I would have had a tough time dealing with the intense work load Thursday and Friday. Calling "The Mae" was a blast.

    • Taker1993 Asks: Hi jim, I'm a big undertaker fan and i was wondering how do you think he was able to keep his character so fresh and popular for all these years? He gets more and more reaction from the crowd as years go by and I think it's amazing how he has stayed so popular for all this time
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Taker is a smart performer who lives his TV persona when he's at work. Living one's character more easier allows it to stay fresher.

    • Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: I have 2 questions. My 1st question is, I read an article and it says Jeff Jarrett almost signed you and Jerry Lawler, and I was wondering if this is true, and do you have any updates for us in regards to the news? My 2nd question is, Floyd Mayweather and Conor Mcgregor had their press conference on Thursday and they were hyping up their match. It was reported that Conor Mcgregor made a racist comment at the press conference, and to me it is crossing the line. I mean it is okay to hype up your matchup, but when someone makes racist comments, or talks about another persons family, etc, it is not acceptable. Your thoughts? I have Floyd Mayweather to win in 6 rounds. Thanks.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I have never been close to ever signing with Impact Wrestling. Obviously, anyone making racist or homophobic remarks is unacceptable.

    • showstoppa44 Asks: Hey Jim, greetings from Philadelphia, I have a host of questions that I would like to ask but i'll just keep this brief here with only one, in your opinion, who do ya think had a better top rope elbow, Michaels or Savage ? To me I think Shawn in his prime, got more distance on it than Savage ... Best Wishes to you Jim
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Too subjective to quantify but HBK's might get my vote. There really isn;t a right or wrong answer on this one.

    • Oldtymefan Asks: Why would WWE name their upcoming tournament for Mae Young rather than Fabulous Moolah? Not that Young doesn't deserve the honor, but Moolah was champion forever. Was she on good terms with WWE?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      ,​You'd have to ask WWE but I had no issues with it whatsoever and yes, Moolah and WWE were on good terms for decades.

    • undertakersgraveyard Asks: Hi J.R., I hope you're well. A very minor question, but one which i've had since the 80's. Why is it that for tag matches 99.9% of the time the babyface team is situated on the "top-left" corner of the ring and the heel team on the "bottom-right" corner? It seemingly doesn't matter which team comes out first either and I can probably count on one hand the amount of times it's been the opposite in 30+ years of watching WWF/E. Have you noticed this yourself and is there any specific reason that you know of as to why this is? Thank you.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      I have no idea but I assume that it's merely tradition.
