Wow, JR is no fun, grumpy and has so little charisma outside of wrestling commentary. Conrad must be raging he's doing this show. He gets to banter and have fun with Schivanoe, Bischoff and Prichard, and then comes old man Ross with his bitching about being asked questions that people want to know about

Does anyone feel JR come across as bitter in some episodes? not to the extent of Cornette, but certainly a strong change in tone when discussing certain events from wcw / wwf? Understood the personal nature of the topics, i guess Eric and Bruce have more controlled perspective on personal issues. it's interesting how JR admits to talking to Meltzer at times... immediately shows the difference between JR and Bruce/ Eric. lol. enjoyable story telling from one man's perspective.

I don't know if it's the audio quality or either JR or Conrad, but it sounds like a lot of sniffling or static. very distracting. otherwise it's an enjoyable listen.
