• Longtime guy Asks: JR I am enjoying Stroman's run. True dominance. I know wins/losses aren't a big deal, but I thought it was odd that Reigns lost to Stroman after the Undertaker match. Seems to stall his momentum, as that seemingly elevated him to another level. Though, I am happy to see it play out. Thanks as always-
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Reigns losing to Strowman did not hurt him whatsoever IMO.

    • MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR. I was watching Jim Cornette doing a shoot video and The Gangstas walked in on him and they were talking about your first interview with them in Smokey Mountain and New Jack being New Jack talking craziness lol Do you have any memories of that and what did you think of The Gangstas in general.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Don;t recall the interview being any thing out of the ordinary and it seemed to accomplish what it was intended to do. I never had any issues working with New Jack.

    • shauny79 Asks: Hi Jim, you commented in your last blogpost that you think fans should be more 'educated' about DQ/count-out finishes to matches. For me, Neville vs. Aries was an example of a DQ finish done well! It got me thinking that I would happily take more of those finishes if we could have a reduction in the massively overused and often ludicrous 'distraction finish'. What are your thoughts?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      DQ's and count outs are all in the execution and Aries vs Neville was executed extremely well.

    • Oldtymefan Asks: Hi J.R., Has the WWE painted themselves into a corner with Roman Reigns? When the fans are thanking Strowman for beating the bejeezus out of Roman, it's painfully obvious a large portion of the fan base are not and never will be Reigns fans no matter how bad WWE wants that to be the case. Sacrificing Reigns to Strowman is great for Brom but seems like a ham-handed effort to drum up sympathy for Reigns but it's just not happening.
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Reigns is a work in progress and I am not concerned whether he is a fan favorite or  villain. I like his work and his TV persona will continue to evolve.

    • kbab Asks: What are your thoughts on Billy Corrigan buying the NWA?
      J.R.'s Answer:

      Billy is a friend and I hope that he maximizes his investment. I am still not sure what he bought or what his long term plans are for the NWA but I'm pulling for Billy and company.

    • 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.
