    Quit talking about AEW. Nobody is watching that garbage
  • Nick_Farrior51
    JR is a prideful (not in a good way) and bitter old man. He’s the definition of daddy issues. He depresses me… he was one of the very best to ever do it in his chosen profession… he experienced a great marriage to his late wife… yet, he carries himself like a sad little boy.
  • nixfinity
    JR is more confused than Donald Trump from too many chair shots to his fat head, and Conrad is an embarrassing shill for AEW nonsense. Even Tony knows better than to return JR to his television shows. Who has an announcer when we can’t understand anything he says?

    Love JR
    Been listening since episode 1 and I just wanted to thank you guys for helping me through many sleepless nights and long car rides for work. This podcast calls my nerves and anxiety and for that , I can’t thank you guys enough. 1 request if i could… more studio session throwback episodes, I love that old media. Thanks JR and thanks Conrad, Happy Easter gentlemen!

    Love it
    Love catching up to the stories of podcast of older times that when i was younger watching. Love learning the stuff that i didn’t know back then .

    Jim has lost all relevance. I bet Tony don’t even call Jim Ross back to the announcing table. He’s lost it and looks as if someone has hit him over his fat head with a rack of ribs.
  • Steve4:20
    JR. Jim Ross is the best at what he does.
    one else that can call and describe what is happening in a match like “Good ole JR”. This comes from his beginnings of broadcssting with Leroy McGuirk, who was blind (as described in his book SLOBBERKNOCKER). JR and Conrad make a great team of describing an event, just like JR and “The King” Jerry Lawler did in WWE. Sure do miss the old days… D. Brent

    The king of whining
    Every show he mentions. U know I had Bell’s palsy ( a lot of people had dumbie but we don’t whine about it ) I from OAK. Who cares. Go back there stay I lost my wife a lot of people have lost spouses What about the ones you cheated on ???? Talk NWA wrestling. Your WWE. Days u were over the hill. U don’t know everything. No one cares about what Jim thinks of collage football stop the Constance whining it’s time to dump this podcast it’s just a place for Jim to whine or try and sell u his stupid Sausage every one has problems and did not make the big money like he did
  • hipolitoPerez
    Show is awful. Doom and gloom
    If you want to hear about how bad JR’s life is now, please listen and he’ll tell ya. JR rambles on and on and often forget the question he was asked. JR constantly either fidgets with something or his dentures are not secured within him mouth and there’s a very loud audible distracting noise while he talks. JR has become an old man who yells at the crowd and thinks he still has ‘it’ but he’s sadly mistaken.
  • BabyBreaker
    Poor Ad/Show Balance
    Feels like I’m mostly listening to ads. I like hearing from JR and I like to hear how he’s been doing, but I feel like I’m really only hearing them talk for about 15 minutes in between all of the ad reads.
  • Captain Charisma26
    Awesome every time
    Love the show, keep up the great work JR & Conrad.
  • Makes No Sense
    If you like hearing about the territory days, pre-Hogan WCW, unvarnished opinions on modern wrestling, you’ll like this podcast. JR puts over AEW (it’s his employer, so of course), but he has no problem criticizing the talent when they do something stupid or think they’re above experienced advice. Love hearing the stories.
  • Ellistheg
    Always great to hear jr speak
  • Halfman!
    Brah. The ads…
    I love Jim Ross and like all the wrestling podcasts done by Thompson, it’s getting to the point where the commercials interrupt the flow and make it very difficult to listen to. It’s like Ricky Bobby covering his windshield with a giant fig newton ad…. It’s too much. He wants everyone to get sick of it and pay for ad free shows.
  • Electromon
    Too many ads.
    Love JR. Want to give him a hug.

    Jim Ross is a legend. Conrad Thompson Is Podcast Poison
    Jim Ross is still a wealth of knowledge, and I appreciate hearing his stories and observations on professional wrestling. Having listened to several episodes, my problem is with his co-host Conrad Thompson. All Conrad does is quote from the same wrestling newsletter writer over and over again to get his information, and then asks Jim Ross to comment. If Thompson is so enamored with the words of this particular dirt sheet writer, give him a podcast of his own. I’m sorry to say that I am just not a fan of Conrad’s personality or what he brings (or better put) doesn’t bring to this podcast. I would much prefer Jim Ross flying solo, or with a decent co-host. Sorry Mr. Ross. Such a waste of a true wrestling treasure! Btw, I know the bills have to be paid, but I have NEVER listened to a podcast with so many ads. It’s a joke!
  • Brian The Flying Squirrel
    Ads Ads Ads
    My complaint is how the ads are spread out. JR might be in the middle of a sentence and just cuts to an ad. You want to use the sponsors of the show, but I tend to avoid the companies because I find the ads and the placement very annoying not to mention, garbage products.
  • Ryan Lucchesi
    WWE Developmental
    The latest episode on WWE Developmental was a good one. Really enjoyed it.
  • Bryce Goddard
    Not sure anymore
    Love JR and Connie but the constant ads combined with JR phoning it in every show as well as at least one megasode per month kinda show where the podcast empire is these days. The only one who seems like he cares anymore is Eric.
  • JcVega101
    Real fun and interesting show hearing some behind the scene stories from good ol JR
  • TopherJames5
    Used to be enjoyable
    This pod used to be super enjoyable but with Paul’s mediocrity and zero charisma now hosting, combined with JR’s griping, it has made this show a weekly skip
  • JoeyBagofDonuts1991
    Love this pod!
    JR does a great job on this show.
  • AudioConsumer
    Wrestling stories from someone who lived it
    Jim Ross, the man behind the mic, has been in wrestling forever and the podcast proves it. Hundreds or amazing stories from a guy who knows the business like the inside of his signature cowboy hat. Grab a bottle of BBQ sauce and let’s grill JR! Download, listen and enjoy!! @Robert_Negoesco
  • brianjets
    Very entertaining. Current/past wrestling info.
  • caligamer1976
    Can’t stand the constant complaining
    Maybe he thinks it’s entertaining but JR’s constant griping isn’t enjoyable.
  • Valley Skin 818
    Too many adds ruined a home run
    Huge JR fan But too much is too much. Even if you gave this 5 stars would you be happy with an hour of solid commercials and hidden somewhere in the middle is five minutes of a JR story? I know people gotta eat but ads prevent me from listening.
  • Blakpoppa
    Finally a episode of Grilling JR without Paul Bromwell. Thank You Lord!
  • katieisdumpin
    Bischoff + JR = Gold
    Conrad please do more of these episodes. Having both of these guys share similar experiences is top notch. Truly the best episode from the kingdom.
  • Howie Feltersnatch 69
    Skipping this week
    Oh no, Paul is the cohost again this week. See you when Conrad comes back.
  • hoyt man 1
    I really used to enjoy the show but Jr has turned into a grouchy person who can’t go an episode without mentioning something political. I don’t even bothering listening if Paul is a cohost.
  • this show used to be good
    Ole jr is your typical whinny liberal
    Yeah jr how’s your boy brandon doing? FJB and FJR.
  • BIG💶
    Paul is the worst.
    This is a 5 star show with Conrad and JR. But the show with Paul is unbearable. Even JR sounds annoyed with him most of the time. Please find a better fill in for Conrad please!
  • B.. Miller
    Not a fan of Paul
    Nothing personal against Paul, I know he helps Conrad out with a lot of things, and that is great, but in my opinion guest hosting should not be one of them. When I see Paul's name listed as the host in the description, I skip that episode. The show is very difficult to get through when he hosts so I have just given up trying. Conrad,, I know you have 856 shows a week going on (I love them all) and it's hard to be on all of them every single week. I'd rather just miss a week than have to listen to Paul. I appreciate everything Paul and others do for all the shows that we the listeners do not see but please, if a new show is not possible, just repost an old Ask JR or something, or maybe let JR freestyle the way he did on his old podcast. Love the show, just not crazy about the guest host.
  • Jsuits23
    Too many ads every 5 minutes
    All about the money for Conrad
  • puffy0365
    By The Way
    This show give you a real deep in deep look at some of our wrestling moments, wrestlers, and just overall dope perspective into the world of wrestling. Oh by the way this show is dope👍🏾
    Thank you Conrad & JR for giving us a great show every week! Paul when you get tagged in you do a great job! Every cry baby that keeps complaining about “SOOOO MANY ADS” there’s this thing called “Ad Free Shows” Keep Up The Great Work!!!!
  • RickRee11
    Please stop
    If Conrad isn't available stop using the other guy. I've given him a shot twice and had to turn it off both times. He's unbearable.
  • D47483
    More ads than actual show
    The first 6 minutes of the show I listened to was ads. Then they plugged a live show they were going to do in the future for several minutes. Next they spoke about the actual topic for about 5 minutes and then they went into the ads again.
  • Thrillhills3
    I listen for Conrad too
    Conrad and JR have the chemistry that makes the show work. I’ve tried listening to many shows with Paul hosting and it just doesn’t work for me. I remove the download and mark as played each episode Paul hosts. Paul is “channel changer jones” for me.
  • coopmanjones23
    So. Many. Ads.
    Jesus Christ the ads are never ending!!! The podcast is good but my God the ads never end.
  • Old Man Mesa
    Toxic Beta Moneygrab
    Conrad is great. Paul is under-appreciated. Jim Ross is easily the least entertaining, least likeable host on Ad Free Shows. Even when he provides the insight for which we’re listening, he makes sure to bury the insight deep in the steaming turds of product placement, disingenuous virtue signaling, and contempt in every direction except those he can monetize. I found myself having to find a reason to listen after the allure of nostalgia dissipated.
  • Bobby Shags
    Bring Back Conrad
    Paul just doesn’t have the charisma or enthusiasm that Conrad does. If you listen carefully, Paul seems to ask ridiculous questions and JR tends to give sarcastic responses back because I think he realizes they are stupid questions.
  • Oscar818U
    Use to look forward to this show every Thursday but now. It’s no good no more the new guy just don’t work for me. 👎🏻👎🏻
  • signed John Wayne
    I’ve listened to other Podcasts portraying Jim as thinking highly of himself. Now that I’ve listened to him for months, it’s true. Done listening to jim loving and feeling sorry for jim
  • Bobcast Goldthwait
    Remember when WWE advertised the Network on the ring apron? The product felt secondary to the revenue. Kind of like that for my ears.
  • MrMcDingle
    Non stop commercials
    This show was really good. Now it’s nothing but commercials
  • asshat605
    It’s not Paul’s fault...the guys just lack any enthusiasm when it’s not Conrad aka the guy cutting the checks.
  • fiendwith3 Ds
    Stop Paul’s Push
    Paul is not good at hosting , stale uninteresting conversations and just lack of chemistry with all the cohosts(especially JR) make him insufferable
  • @levihasarrived
    This podcast is a solid listen for those that love wrestling and JR. JR has a pretty unbiased recall in most instances and gives pretty honest assessments of events of the past. Where I get lost is when they’ll start the podcast off and JR goes off on people who criticize him online, sometimes fairly. JR comes across as bitter and resentful. And I get it, wrestling fans online are the absolute WORST. But we all know that, so why pay it any attention? Also, JR is extremely horny and is not shy about it, so that’s always awkward and weird, but other than that, love JR and you could just listen to him talk forever.
