has updated the Q&A section on his official website, JRsbarbq.com, and he defends wrestlers using ’s former finishing hold, the “Crippler Crossface.” Ross said, “Benoit wasn’t the first man to use a cross face. Why do wrestlers use a headlock? It’s a hold that works even though it was made famous by Ed ‘Stranger’ Lewis in the early 1900’s.”

Ross also snaps at a reader who wrote (20 times) that he wanted to see ’s streak end. Ross wrote, “Are you an idiot? You have sent me this email so many times it is sad. Please cease and stop embarrassing yourself. I swear you sent this 20 times word for word. Thank you.”

He also comments on why Stevie Richards failed to acheive more success in WWE. “You’ve placed Stevie in esteemed company. It simply may have been the ‘it’ factor as he was a great guy who I loved being around,” Ross said. “I hope he finds the success he wanted in wrestling now in his post wrestling career. Guys like Stevie Richards would make great members of a creative team.”

Other topics discussed include whether J.R. keeps up with the indy wrestling scene, , and former Mid-South broadcaster Boyd Pierce.
