What inspired Sosa? And what made you decide to try out this new character?


How do you manage to keep such a high level of promos between two characters?

Who would you like to work with as SOSA?

And lastly godbless you brother

Is HBB retired for good?

Why Cleopatra? Name, and all. How did you come to, and stick with that for your character?

Other than eventually wanting to get back at Noah (although for what purpose, he started it..) what do you want to accomplish with Sosa?

1. Honestly, @Ronn Bank$ helped create the character. I've been playing Shawn Michaels for over a decade in the EAW and with my recent history of going inactive on and off(Although most of those were due to real life situations) It was finally time for something new. I came to Banks about creating a new character. I wanted Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins or even Stone Cold but they were taken. He mentioned doing a black character and being myself for once. At first I wasn't so sure but I tried it and it seems like it's working well right now. SOSA is like a mix of my favorite wrestlers as well(Stone Cold, Eddie Guerrero and the Rock) I've also inputted a little of flavor with comedy inspired by Peanut Live (Muppet show from Philly)


And his toughness and rude mentality comes from Beanie Sigel in State Property


2. It depends who I am promoing against really. And most or all promoers in EAW are very interesting characters right now and it motivates me to keep the high-level of promoing with both characters. I love how EAW has evolved from just putting out promos to now building stories and characters. Wins and losses rarely matter to me anymore. I just love to have a good promo battle nowadays.

3. This a tough question. I want to work with a lot of people. I guess if I had to make a top 5, it would be @Visual Prophet @Rex32 @Malcolm Jones @Jamie O'Hara @Serena Bennett Especially, Serena since we're building our stories in promos already.

4. Thanks brother, God-bless you as well and keep up the great work!

1. Yeah, the HBB character is pretty much done unless the EAW Board wanted to use the character for a match or two. I really wouldn't mind helping build another young character which I wanted to do with Drake King. Drake was the reason I went so hard on the promos for Showdown's RTR Chamber to ensure shock value and I guess it worked out a little bit. I just wanted to give Drake something to use for his promos and character.

2. Cleopatra was inspired by a group of female promoers in LEGION. I wanted to create the character just for the purpose to promo against these women. @Ms. Extreme was one of them. This is where Cleopatra actually started then I played her in a e-fed group called AWL where she was the first female member to sign up and promo there. Some people might disagree but the EAW wasn't so kind about males playing females back then from what I remember, which is why I made Cleopatra out to be an actual real person instead of letting them know it was me. (Something I still regret doing) Other than that, I decided the "Cleopatra" name because her gimmick coming into e-feds was about being an Egyptian Goddess that fought for female supremacy in the EAW. My scene promos were always about having male servants carrying her on a rug or being catered by male slaves. Cleopatra's personality is also very sinister like and she would use anyone or anything just to get ahead like she already has done in notable EAW stables such as Project EGO/CNTower/Demon's Council. @Cameron Ella Ava really helped boost Cleopatra's confidence all the time with our amazing promo battles. I also had incorporated Sindel from Mortal Kombat to fit her type of mentality with a mix of Angelina Jolie from Beowulf. The reception and having fun with this character has made me stick with her. As of right now, I'm trying to find closure with Cleo since she really had one run in EAW.

3. Yup, I think SOSA knows someday he'll get another shot at Noah in a bigger match. But right now, I just want SOSA to become a big figure in the EAW. He doesn't need a title to be seen as a big name but his personality, promos, and five-star match capabilities is what I want for him. Kind of like Stone Cold in 1997.. A heel personality but the fans still loved him because of his character direction.

Your inconsistencies over the years have been quite documented, however you have been on a straight tear and have been killing it consistently for the past year. I'd say your best run since 2013 based on the things I heard about your 2014-2017 activity :lupe: I say that to ask.... what can this surge be attributed to?

Would you say the SOSA character brought a second wind out of you? What are your favorite things about portraying him?

How is fatherhood?

Do you wanna have more kids?

Did you cyber with Jay as Cleo back in the day when they thought you were a girl? :troll:

If you were younger and had more time do you think you would have joined editing competitions like Pehrox and them do?

What is your favorite video you ever made?

Whens the last time you ate some pussy?

You ever had to give a bad bitch CPR and didn't wanna come up from doing it?

What advice would you give to those who are just getting started in this game?

Who is your favorite of the three characters?
1. My most memorable feud as HBB may be with @Impact It was easily my favorite because we had a lot of heat going out of character about who was best on our brand. And clearly, we know now, #8Reignz. From House of Glass to our promo battle for a match on Dynasty(Last Man Standing) which I requested to Scott was something I don't think we'll ever forget. We promoed like every 30 minutes, stalking the promo page, anticipating another response. I had to pull the thesaurus out all day for this one. In the end, I won the Dynasty match(Looking back on it, I didn't deserve the win) but Imp was able to win the world title shortly after so it all worked out. I've also had classic feuds with CM Banks that led to his first retirement (promo battle was very ooc and he really showed people that he can do both, kill it on the promo page and handle a whole e-fed by himself and not just in this feud alone), Mr. DEDEDE in our battle for the Greatest of All Time title(We know DDD is truly the GOAT), Jaywalker and Lioncross( we feuded in almost every yahoo e-fed that was created back then lol ) The Impact feud just stuck out more because of the challenge and redemption.

As Cleo, this is easy. Cameron Ella Ava. Our feud was like a Lita vs. Trish Stratus rivalry. The only two female characters to carry the load for the Vixen's division from 2011-2013. We had so many one-on-one matches and it led to Cameron ultimately defeating Cleopatra and ending her year-long Vixens reign at PFP which she rightfully deserved. I thank Cam for allowing Cleo to hold onto the belt for that long when she could have easily said something about it or when she found out it was me, how she kept it cool or probably didn't care lol. Cam's simply the best. I think the toughest opponents Cleo has ever had was recent. You and your pals, the Crowe's Nest. @Chelsea Crowe @Jael I don't think I've ever felt defeated before I even started writing a promo but the Nest definitely made this happen. They were easily the best at convincing themselves they were out for blood. And our match for the Grand Prix Semi-Finals against Fire & Ice, you and Rex were just too good. @Kassidy Heart is also another favorite, I genuinely read her promos more than once to learn from her writing abilities. She's a great story-teller and an awesome rival for Cleopatra because they're like the exact opposite. Kassidy seems more girly girl while Cleo is tom-boyish but they both are blonde beauties.

2. My advice for anyone starting in this game... Stay patient, focus more on developing your character and sharpen your writing skills. There's plenty of resources online to help with your promos that we didn't have back then. Use them to proofread and look up certain words to see if they make sense with your sentences. Most importantly, just have fun and be yourself. The main challenge should always deal with becoming a better 'you' at the end(The one thing no one else in any e-fed can do), not necessarily being better than your e-fed buddies. Also, if you're losing passion, try to find something new to do if you want to stick with this game or else, you'll just be looked like an inconsistent fool.

3. Cleopatra will probably end up retired in two years time unless I find a way to expand her story. SOSA Henderson, I'm hoping will still be a big part of EAW, a world champion, an all-time promoer and super over with the fans. HBB will still be bald somewhere, probably too busy playing drunk dads in low budget movies, lol.

4. SOSA Henderson is my favorite so far because I can be myself and I'm having the most fun writing his promos which is a large thing to say considering I've probably put out over 100,000 promos as the Heart Break Boy. I've played HBB in countless e-feds and my connection with the character is probably deeper than Cleo/SOSA but I'm more on the SOSA wave like everyone else seems to be lol.

1. Well, a lot can be said for this one. I think with spending the majority of my middle school and high school days in this world led me to burn-out at certain points. Also, a few family member deaths(Grandma in 2011, my favorite Auntie shortly after) slowed me down a ton and e-feds started becoming less of a priority for me after a certain point(which wasn't fair for the writers or people that wanted me to stick around for storylines and such). I also did not enjoy the way I was booked during 2014-2017, which is my fault, I always tend to go with the flow but I should have spoken up more. Nowadays, I don't have to because we have a very talented board staff now that actually communicates with their roster instead of having to guess what and force stuff out. To be honest, I never wanted to return in 2017.I rejoined the discord chat to see all the bickering about the Cailin saga. And like two weeks later, I'm finding out that I'm on the Dynasty script again about to face Nico Borg lmao. Later I found out, Robbie was going to write my promos for me. I guess that's how inconsistent I was, lol. I decided to promo for myself because I thought they needed more help for the Dynasty. But being thrown in world title matches after every return which I know I wasn't winning burnt me out. (If you only knew how many times I've promoed about redeeming myself lmao) Obviously, the LATE LATE shows contributed to a lot of my fall outs as well. One week, I'd be red hot, ready to promo then I will quickly lose passion due to prolonged episodes and never looked back to check the site (I was rarely active on chats 2014-2017) As of now,you and @Mr. DEDEDE really helped pushed this surge. You were always on me about promoing/helping me stay involved by asking for videos and such. Mr. DEDEDE was motivational by telling me to turn back the clock for once. Ultimately, the great writing staff, members, promoers and leadership are the main contributors. I'm also at the point of my life I've regained some peace and I'm less stressed financially and in my romantic life.


2. I definitely think SOSA Henderson has brought new life out of me and thanks to you, sir. I can easily have fun and talk my shit like I would irl lol. My favorite things about portraying him are being able to feel flexible. I can be funny, serious and creative all in one versus being serious all the time with Cleopatra and just feeling old and uninterested anymore with Heart Break Boy. I love the scene promos with SOSA and it feels refreshing to promo with a younger pic-base for the first time in I don't know how long lol. The briefcase story with Noah is already one of my favorites, I like how the writers(I assume Raven and Kassidy) pulled this off perfectly and I enjoyed the promo battle with him.

3. There are no kids for me anymore. :lupe: I was tricked into thinking I had a son but later took a DNA test plus went to court to find out he wasn't my child. I know this is something new to you and maybe a few who are reading this but I guess the perfect opportunity to explain it. Word of advice though, make sure you're happy with the person you are with and take your time to have kids. Get to know the girl before you decide to nut in them. And I mean, know absolutely EVERYTHING! All-in-all... I dodged a bullet, thanks to God.

4. I do want kids in the future when the time is right and with the right person. After this experience of being used, I'm definitely taking my time.

5. Hell nah... I wanted to do it in person but:shaq: I don't think anyone should read up on the Cleo rumors lol because if most of them were true, I'm sure screenshots would've poured in. Some of the rumors were fueled by hate.

6. Yeah I would have. I think I'd had more fun with my younger self joining Pehrox and them in the video competition. I was steady trying to learn back then and if they were around with this editing competition, I would probably become way better than I am right now. Because their videos are straight through the roof and I love challenges! Starr was a better video editor in my opinion back then and in a way pushed me to become better but we used to same concept by pulling shit off youtube. Nowadays, I see these young lads actually creating shit from scratch, which I can do too but I simply have no patience with the wrestling videos/titantrons but soon I'll give it a try, especially once Pain for Pride comes back around.

7. This is too tough... I've made so many great videos and most of them are gone due to copyrights as you already know. Individually, the Grand Rampage in 2012 or 13 with Kanye/JayZ Niggas in Paris is up there though. I did enjoy Sicko Mode one and loved using the new effects on that one which I will use in the future. Other than that recently I guess, these are up there(the only one's I can still find) :


but of course, my all-time favorite will forever be with Starr, Pain 4 Pride video.

8. Last weekend, this big booty chick house I went over. We did 69. I'll give her a 7.5 tho just because she has a fat ass lol.

9. Nah but I wish lol... however, most of the time I'm using a bag valve mask for CPR and most of my patients are elderly. I have worked on a few younger patients like myself or a little bit older but they weren't cardiac problems, they were more so medical or behavioral problems.

Out of the shitload of tag team partners you've had over the years, who were your faves and why was one of them me?

If you could have HBB team up with anyone of this current era, who would have it been?

Do the bitches really "Love SOSA"?

Do you think the SOSA character has brought a new edge to your promos and whatnot?

What's with Cleo and joining stables? It's kinda scary, man.

:troll:
1. To be true, I didn't think it would last very long lol. That's because I wasn't aware that Empire had stables already (Jaded Wolfe Hearts/Crowe's Nest etc..) And I was originally supposed to return to face Cloud for the world title but of course, that's history now. But I was very happy we finally got a Lita and Trish Stratus pic-base to team up and do storylines with. I was also very happy to finally do something with @Madison Kaline we never communicated throughout all these years until last year lol. Seeing what you two can do made me feel even prouder. You're both in my top five favorite promoers and top 1 favorite stable in my history of being in EAW.

2. I always loved Philly's vibe. My favorite old tv shows(like Boy Meets World), movies, artists, comedians, and basketball players are from Philly. Not to mention my favorite color is green and every time I think about Philly, that color always comes to mind lol. I thought it would be a good conception for SOSA's toughness even though St. Louis probably wasn't a bad idea either. I can't wait to visit there someday, hopefully, Dirti Diva can show me around :creep:

3. Usually, before I promo, I listen to my theme songs for each character (LOVE SOSA) For SOSA and (Mona Lisa) for Cleopatra. I still listen to "What's Free" by Meek Mill for SOSA as well. I just place the image in my head about them walking down the ramp with their music playing then I go from there. I still watch old WWF/E promo videos as well to help motivate me. It's really tough promoing with two characters but considering Cleopatra is in a stable with you and Maddie, it has been slightly better because I have more to work with. Plus you both make me go harder just like my opponents do as well. Most of the time I just promo off the top of my head while slowly scrolling down my opponent's promo, dissecting it piece by piece. But music is really the biggest factor to help me.

4. Confused. Selfish. Talented. (I guess I don't have to explain lol)

5. I became an EMT only for the medical field experience and I was required to get my license so I can go into the Fire Academy which I still plan on doing in hopefully a couple years. Right now, I must go through Paramedic school starting in the fall this year because it'll be a better opportunity to land a job and better pay(They start off with almost 80-90k a year) From there, I want to use this job as investment in my own business(possibly a bar or art lounge) because I do not want to work for anybody for the rest of my life lol. But I'm also a very good hearted person that goes out his way to help others so this job is perfect for me. I'm not afraid of approaching people or being pressed by people either. I've got the experience of seeing dead or severely injured people because I used to work inside a hospital when I was 18 for several years. It was never a long-time dream of me being an EMT or Firemen but I attended Community College for three years then stopped for about four years because I didn't like school. And my moms kind of forced me to enroll and become a Pharmacist when I originally wanted to move to Chicago for the Art Insitute. I found passion in returning back to school last year because I felt like I wasn't where I needed to be in life, especially with thinking I had a son. To my surprise, student advisors told me that I had a great number of credits and could snag an associates degree for general studies if I returned to school. The EMT program was one of the options for me so I gave it a shot. And it turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

6. Wait a minute :stopitslime: What makes Serena good enough for SOSA???? lol kidding... but I think what makes SOSA good enough for Serena is simple:

SOSA Henderson will win a world championship before Cam Newton wins a Superbowl Ring. :sas1:

1. My favorite team partner as HBB was indeed with Cameron Ella Ava



lol because I felt like we used the same promo style plus our chemistry was already there from the Cleopatra vs. Cameron wars. If I had only remained consistent, this team could have been the first intergender tag team to win the tag titles. Oh well, at least we did win some big matches and made a name for ourselves lmao. Dynasty X with ADV because I was able to promo like Shawn Michaels when he was apart of DX and partner with a Triple H pic-base and it brought some fun to the promo page.

As for Cleo, no doubt about it -- Amber Keys! We had an amazing reign as tag champions and I loved the idea that we were kind of like enforcers for Madison Kaline because it definitely fitted Maddie more being the leader. Also, Amber Keys is probably the most gifted promoers I've teamed with besides yourself. Jaywalker in CN Tower because no one could stop us, lol. We should've been the first intergender tag team to win the titles too. I got robbed! How ironic that I'm playing a thief now? :troll:

I can't forget I guess partnering with Lioncross in the DGM as HBB. We both won the tag titles in LEGION and have a long history with each other.

2. In this current generation, I think HBB could team up with @Noah Reigner in some type of team where Noah is like "I can do anything you can do old man but I can also do it better" while HBB tries to prove he still got it. Like a badass teaming with an old school legend on his last legs.

3. Yes, I assume so. These bitches may really love SOSA. Let me ask somebody... @Serena Bennett what do you think?



4. Yes, definitely... I'm able to create stuff more freely than I what I would do with HBB or Cleopatra. I can make promos on award shows, famous interview shows, and stuff. For once in my career, I have a character that feels and acts like a star compared to Cleopatra, who acts ancient and HBB being Christian-like. Therefore there's definitely an advantage for SOSA in terms of promos plus this is something new I haven't done in a long time. It will be fun and interesting to see how I'm able to maintain SOSA's enthusiasm throughout the rest of this year.


5. I honestly don't know, lol. The Queen's Court wasn't pre-planned and I remember @Theron Nikolas bringing up the idea of Cleo teaming with him which was a perfect plan. Theron is the GOD EMPEROR while Cleopatra is the Queen of the Nile. It all works perfectly but after the Grand Prix finals, I had no idea if we still would be teaming or not, lol. It came back around at the right time because now Amber and Mr. DEDEDE can reunite as well and DDD is also Madison's inspiration/trainer. I guess it is now customary for me to join a stable since I've probably been in the most in EAW history (EGO, Council, Team ACW, HBBand, Court and now One Percent)

Who is your greatest rival as HBB?

What are your long term goals for SOSA?

would you ever consider using bald Shawn Michaels in the future? :p

What is your favorite fast food place?
1. I’d say Jaywalker considering we grew up in e-feds together and competed against each-other in almost every notable yahoo e-fed from ACW, CWF, XWF, LEGION just to name a few. In EAW we kept this little wins and loss record between each-other as well. I’m not sure but I’m positive it was like 15-9 last time I checked with him having the upperhand. Every match and promo we put out against each-other were simply fantastic. We made one another better in every way. Our story resembles a Goku and Vegeta friendship because we eventually started teaming with each-other after so many heated battles.

2. My long-term for SOSA deals with stardom and being a huge face of EAW or his respective brand, either or is fine with me. I want to be creative as possible and do some things that no one has ever done with this character. I want to bring excitement in every feud to the point people wish to face off against SOSA simply because it’ll be a fun promo war and match.

3. :martin: bald shawn michaels?! Really!? Lol But you have to admit, HBK is the sexiest bald man on earth! But nah, I’ll always use HBK with hair if HBB does return for a match because I’m just a sexy boooyyyy.

4. My favorite fast food place is Miami Grill. They serve chicken, shrimp, steak, catfish.. you name it. And they’re all served within 15 minutes. :blessed:
