- What separates Braxton and Chelsea from the real-life TK and Dahlia? Also, in what ways did SPPC inspire your characters?
Honestly, I see their duo act as the opposite of SPPC's. Whilst SPPC is all about the PDA, Chelsea pretty much wants Braxton as far away from her as possible when he isn't helping her win. Chelsea is different from Dahlia in that she's way more heelish, has different motivations, and I feel has a different promo style and attitude from Dahlia. TK and Braxton are pretty similar, but Braxton is way more of a side character and much more of a cuck. I'd argue he's somehow got a more annoying character as well.

In terms of inspiration, SPPC's backstory and beginnings as wrestlers definitely inspired Braxsea's, but I added my own twists to fit their characters more. I'd argue TK is a bigger inspiration on Braxton than Dahlia is on Chelsea, since I've kinda amplified TK's characteristics for Braxton whilst Chelsea has evolved more into her own character.

- Seen any good horror films lately?
Rewatched Eyes Without A Face the other day, which is a classic. Been watching a lot of French Horror since that's the subject of an essay I'm doing, so I've watched Frontier(s), In My Skin (a favourite of mine), Trouble Every Day, to name a few. Also saw a Thai horror film a couple weeks ago called Sick Nurses, which was weird as hell and I'm not sure if I recommend it or not. I'd watch it again though.

- What would you say is different between competing on Showdown versus competing on Empire? Do you have any favorite matches as either Marx or Chelsea?
I don't think there's much of a difference between the brands, just more of a difference between the characters I wrote as. If I'm being completely honest I feel like I was never seen as being able to compete on a consistent main event level on Showdown, be that my fault or whatever, but on Empire it feels much more like it's anyone's game. Empire feels more open, so you never know what to expect, and it feels more competitive as a result.

In terms of favourite matches, I still love Marx vs Cloud, to be honest I wish that was my last match as Marx. Going against Rex was always fun as well. For Chelsea, again my matches against Cloud have been fun, and I also enjoyed the Specialist Rampage just because I feel I was promoing a lot more intensely than I usually do.

- Favorite moment in reality TV history?
New York going off on that bitch who thought she looked like Beyonce when really she looked like Luther Vandross. To be honest, anything New York has done on reality TV is iconic.

- Thoughts on Dahlia Black stepping out of the ring to do commentary?
I'm sad because I feel like the PROGRESS women's division could really do with her right now, plus she was really hitting her stride in terms of popularity and improvement. But her reasons are justified and who am I to complain if she was genuinely struggling mentally whilst wrestling. At least I'll still be able to hear those dulcet kiwi tones on commentary.

- Would you rather have a pizza-sized ketchup bun or a bun-sized pizza?
This is discrimination. But I'd rather have a bun-sized pizza purely because I don't think I could handle and pizza-sized ketchup bun.

- How's the Wiki addiction going?
I'm about 30 potential wiki alts in, you know how it's going.

- Finally, if you could book PROGRESS, who would be your champions and what storylines would you like to have play out?
Obviously Jinny would be Women's Champion, Toni would have definitely dropped that belt by now. Atlas champ, I'd say Rampage Brown on a big comeback story. Tag champs would be Aussie Open, purely because I love Mark Davis and I feel a face tag team should be champs in a division that's full of heels. Plus I want to see Aussie Open vs Craft Beating Company. World Champ I have no idea, honestly the scene has been dead ever since Brookes got involved. I say keep it on Banks, or have him drop it to Mandrews so we can finally have Mandrews vs Dennis as the high-profile feud to make the main event mean something again.

For stories, bring back SPPT as tag contenders because clearly neither of them can make the main event scene work, plus they were ten times more entertaining and over as a duo in my eyes. Jinny vs Millie McKenzie would be entertaining, could make for a great underdog story (far better than the one they're forcing down our throats with Toni Storm). Rampage Brown being dominant as hell against guys like WALTER would be fun to see too. And yeah, Dennis/Mandrews has to happen properly and propel the main event scene into the league it should be in. Dennis could be a great heel champion against people like Thatcher, WALTER, Sexsmith, Banks, etc. Mandrews could be a great face champion against anyone else since he always feels like an underdog.

Well, there are a few reasons. The main reason is because I just didn't have the motivation to write as him any more. Even with gimmick changes and the interesting ideas I had in mind for him, writing his promos felt like a chore every week and I felt like I wasn't putting any effort in. It's a shame, because there were a lot of directions I had in mind for him to go in, but I just had no drive to write as him and see them through, and I'd rather just not do them than do them half-heartedly.

I also dropped him around a time when I was very busy in terms of uni work, so I just didn't have time for him on top of writing for Chelsea, who I love writing as. Plus, that Openweight title run killed my motivation entirely, and just made me think Marx had no credibility going forward. Losing all of that momentum made me wonder why I write as him when I didn't even enjoy writing his promos, and in the end I realised I only wrote as him because I didn't want other people seeing me as some kind of failure or whatever. I feel like a lot of expectations were put on him, so I forced myself to write as him. But enough was enough, I made the decision to go on an indefinite break with him, and I've come to enjoy fedding a lot more whilst focussing on Chelsea.

Marx could come back, but right now I have very little desire to return as him. But thanks for thinking he was cool while he lasted :)

Definitely Braxton with Chelsea. Braxton is such a cuck he embraces it, Marx is the kinda cuck that hides it because he's insecure.

- Is there any matches you're looking forward to during WM weekend?
I legit don't even know one match that's happening at WM. Nor can I recall what's happening elsewhere during WM weekend. I know PROGRESS are having a show so I'll just say that.

- What's your favorite Maritess Trosper video? Can you give me some advice when dealing with losers that act like a man who has a bajina?
The one where she's all like "very jealous 😏" (I think it's one titled "when losers try to bring you down" or something) because the combination of the background music, her voice, and the general message of the video is art.

And for advice, just stick your Adele remix on and call them out for the jealous losers they are. Or just block them on Twitter, I hear that's what people do nowadays when they don't want to deal with people who have issues with them.

- Would you rather have a lifetime supply of Pizza Hut or Subway?
Pizza Hut because there's more variety on their menu. If you think I'm turning down a lifetime supply of cheese triangles you're mistaken.

- Which of the following is a more dynamic duo: Braxsea, Chesapril, Chloud, or Chelsael?
Chloud would be an iconic dynamic duo if Cloud answered Chelsea's calls, and if Chesapril's duo name was better they'd be up there. For now, the most dynamic is Chelsael.

- How much do you love my dog?
I love him more than myself.

- Any favorite conspiracy theories?
- Should I bring in my Travis Banks alt so we can become the South Pacific Power Trip of e-feds?
- Any Death Grips songs you might recommend me?
- When will you finish my Harvey Yorke sig?
- Compare yourself from when you first started e-fedding to where you are now. Has there been anything you've learned/do differently now that you have the experience? What advice would you have given to yourself before starting e-fedding?

- Any favorite conspiracy theories?
I don't know if it counts as a conspiracy theory, but I've always been intrigued by the mystery surrounding the Madeleine McCann disappearance. Considering it happened when I was fairly young, I can still remember all the news coverage, and the fact it's still unsolved yet there are gaping holes in several people's alibis and the like always seemed odd to me. Plus the theories about who was involved are very convincing when you look at the details. Or maybe that's just me being a mental. Who knows?

Also a fan of space-related theories and aliens because I'm a closet sci-fi fan.

- Should I bring in my Travis Banks alt so we can become the South Pacific Power Trip of e-feds?
Yes. But only if the Crowe's Nest goes belly-up.

- Any Death Grips songs you might recommend me?
"You might think he loves you for your money" is one that I'll always love. "No Love" was the first one I heard and it made me love Death Grips, so obviously I recommend that. Most of the ones I love, you already enjoy, so there's not much more to recommend other than their previous tracks you may not have seen before.

- When will you finish my Harvey Yorke sig?
Never.

- Compare yourself from when you first started e-fedding to where you are now. Has there been anything you've learned/do differently now that you have the experience? What advice would you have given to yourself before starting e-fedding?
I don't think there's much I do differently in terms of writing, but I do feel like I take it a lot less seriously than when I first started. Now it's just an escape for me, a creative outlet. I've learned not to put too much weight on a hobby that's goal is to escape from my reality. If I could give advice to myself, I would remind myself that it's just a hobby and not something to get competitive over. I'd remind myself to have fun, which I feel I'm doing a lot more now. And I'd tell myself not to worry about what other people think, but to do what I enjoy the most character/gimmick/promo-wise.

What was your first thought when you realized that April, Chelsea and Jael were going to be paired together for the Crowe's Nest?
I was super excited and couldn't wait to see where the team would go. Jael and I already had the idea of teaming up, so knowing it would become something even bigger with the Crowe's Nest was exciting. I knew we'd do great work together, so I couldn't wait to get stuck in with the angle.

Five favorite movies?
My favourites change all the time, but five films I'll always love are:
- Tenebre
- The Host (2006)
- Ichi the Killer
- Hellraiser
- Halloween (1978)

What do you think is the most prestigious title in Pro wrestling/sports entertainment today (In the real world)?
As someone who doesn't even watch NJPW regularly, I'd recognise the IWGP Heavyweight Championship as one of the most prestigious due to how it's been booked and protected, which is what WWE's main event titles lack. In terms of popularity, WWE's titles are obviously seen as prestigious, but their recent booking has left them a little shaky in terms of reputation, at least in my eyes. If PROGRESS booked their World title a little better recently, then I'd see it as one of the most prestigious indie titles, at least for the British scene, which I follow far more than any other.

What’s your favorite color?
Gold. Also like the colour red, but gold is my favourite.

What’s your favorite food
Pizza. If you want to get more specific, thin Italian Margherita from Pizza Hut is my go-to because I'm a simple guy who likes simple things.

Have you ever had a near death experience
Almost got hit by a truck on my way to uni once because the driver decided to ignore traffic lights and speed through a crossing. If I was a step slower I would've been hit, but I'm still here. Don't know how near-death that is, but I feel like narrowly avoiding a truck is as close to death as I want to be right now.

If you were asked to be branded with an RFID microchip into your skin that would connect all your personal devices, credit card info and etc to you would you do it
Even though I'm growing increasingly wary of technology, I probably would just because of the ease it would add to life and because it means I wouldn't have to carry around a bunch of stuff I usually forget. As soon as it borders on Black Mirror territory, though, I'd rip that chip out 'Entire History of You' style.

What is the most memorable experience you had in 2017
I think it says a lot that my most memorable experiences are either negative or pretty dull. But I'll keep it positive and say surprising my grandparents (who live on the other end of the country) by seeing them for the first time in 3/4 years after a personal disagreement caused them to cut me and my parents off. Thankfully that issue was resolved, so it was a pleasant surprise visit and not me just crashing into their home uninvited.

Who is the most important person in your life
It sounds cliché, but my mother. After all the shit she's been through, the fact she managed to raise me on her own for about 17 years and not let anything faze her is admirable in my eyes. Without her, things could've turned out a lot worse, so I'd say she's the most important person in my life.

What is your opinion on male on female wrestling, do you think it could work in bigger companies like wwe or njpw, why or why not
Personally, I don't have an issue with it, but I can see why people would. I follow the British indies which have done a lot more intergender wrestling recently, and so I'm not sensitive to it and find it no different from two men or two women wrestling. WWE could perhaps get away with it, I mean they've already experimented with it with the Mixed Match Challenge, which has gone down pretty well. I don't think it'd ever become popular though, since people just wouldn't buy into it. A lot of people value realism, and in real sports, men and women are separated, so I understand why people can't suspend their disbelief for intergender wrestling. But I feel like if women's wrestling got more exposure and build outside of a couple of matches per show or whatever, then people's perceptions could change, they might see intergender wrestling as more believable, and it could become something more mainstream. Right now though, I don't think it'd work in bigger companies and is limited to the indie scene where audiences suspend their disbelief a lot more.

What is the most gross thing youve ever seen
When I was about six my friend broke their arm and the bone poked through the skin, so being six we all gawked at it and I feel like my brain has just exaggerated how gross it was. Still, just thinking about it makes me feel a little nauseous.

Where do you think people go when they die
I don't believe in an afterlife, I think when people die then that's it. They 'live on' in people's memories and the energy and values they spread to other people, but when they die they either go six feet under or into a fire.

- Spill the T: do you think Dahlia Black is actually McLovin?
- ‎Say your e-fedding career is in jeopardy. If you could stay in the hobby strictly as a CM Punk rip off character, would you do it? Or at that point would you just quit e-feds?
- ‎If you could have a match with anyone else outside of Empire, who would it be?
- ‎Would you ever want to swap pets? Also, what's your favorite thing about your cat? Does she know I would die for her?
- ‎Do you view growing old as a good thing or a bad thing? Ever worry about your youth fleeting away from you?
- ‎Do you believe people's picbases influence they way they're treated in a fed? What's it like earning 3 titles in two years while using characters with obscure picbases?
- ‎If we lived in some Black Mirror alternative universe where you could block someone IRL, who's all on your block list?
- ‎Custom PFP entrances: are they cool or nah? Will Chelsea and Braxton come out to their own custom anine intro?
