@Joe Negron ,

The struggle is real

So derailed

Conrad does everything he can to salvage a show out of this, but JR is just miserable anymore and it’s not funny or endearing any way. Peppered throughout is good wrestling knowledge, but the tirades about people wanting dirt and sensitive people online have become old and repetitive.

I want to remember JR for the childhood memories he’s created and this is tarnishing it completely.

The 902 ,

Cranky Old Man Has Good Stories

Jeez, JR, take a chill pill. The dude just loves to bury anyone who criticizes him. He constantly goes on tirades about his critics, yet never acknowledges his own flaws or even defends himself. He just cries about not being liked anymore. That nonsense needs to stop. The saving grace is that he is a fountain of knowledge and insight, and it’s a good listen for that aspect, but this is the most unpleasant Conrad podcast because JR’s crankiness.
