If you are making these comments based on the report that came out about a former writer what you have to realise is that JR probably has his fingers on the pulse more so than a lot of the writers do. He most likely criticises Vinces and creatives ideas which makes them ridicule him.

Oh no im just basing it on what ive heard with certain members on the forms saying " Jr aint no saint" or " Well Jr can be an asshole as well" yet no one saying what he has done to begin with

JR's a dick on Twitter once in a while, so it wouldn't shock me. I'd think everyone knows that JR the television personality is a "character" and not the actual guy.

If you're VP of Talent Relations you've got to be a bit of a twat to be fair.

I wouldn't say that. JR always seemed to play himself on screen.

JR started his career in the territory days when being a dick was part of survival.

Also, this is a guy who loves football, wrestling, and bbq. Yeah, he probably has jock sense of humor, which basically involves insulting your friends, while they insult you back.

After working for a company that fired him multiple times, humiliated him on live television, demoted him from VP of talent relations in favor of Johnny Ace, used his illness as the subject of ridicule in backstage skits and hardly being giving him any credit for his contributions, do you really blame him for turning into a dick?
