-Hi Jamie, how are you?
-What did you think of your performance at GR?
-With this merge, who are you excited to face out of the new batch of people?
-How would rate your time as World Heavyweight Champ? Is it something you hold with a great deal of pride

-And finally, how do you feel about our Lord Kento regaining the AJPW Triple Crown?

How do you feel about the state of graphic design leagues/forums nowadays?
If you could master one particular part of design, what would it be?

Is Finn Balor your favorite wrestler currently?

I remember we had similar tastes in music, which bands have you been listening to as of late?

- It was a solid performance given I only promoed twice and didn't really invest in it. Super appreciative of the writers who gave me so much time and the eliminations.

- I'm not sure tbh. Being able to potentially face people like Banks and Scott is up there, reigniting feuds with GC and TLA too.

- 10/10, would reign again. I never expected it to go on for as long as it did and everyone who I defended it against stepped up and forced me to remain consistent, to maintain a high quality.

- Absolutely. I would love to win Grand Rampage and be THE headline match at PFP. Hall of Fame spot too. Wouldn't mind another crack at trying to reign for a year either :mjpls:

- The ledge is right where he should always be :blessed:

How do you feel about the state of graphic design leagues/forums nowadays?
If you could master one particular part of design, what would it be?
- Uninspired tbh. I feel WCF and the Asylum really made it tough for me to judge remaining leagues for what they are. I feel only centering your league around one form of design, around one topic area like pro wrestling leads to a really low ceiling. I feel leagues and forums would benefit from focusing around graphic design instead of merely "GFX"; having stipulations be seen as briefs, deviating from something like pro wrestling - at least in the higher levels - and getting designers to explore branding, UI, marketing and promotion, 3D work, manipulations etc etc. I'm always looking out for that next "Asylum" that brings me back into a league but I can't seem to find one.

- I'd have to say 3D modeling and rendering. I feel some of the biggest inspirations in my journals stem from designers who use Maya and Vray to create something realistic; the attention to detail and the quality of it all is incredible to see.

Is Finn Balor your favorite wrestler currently?

I remember we had similar tastes in music, which bands have you been listening to as of late?
- He's up there. My favourite wrestler changes constantly, right now I'm right into following Aussie blokes like Adam Brooks and Jonah Rock.

- Bit of a mix of stuff. The National, Roger Waters, Don't Die Like I Did, Deaf Havana, Buried In Verona.

Who do you think has the best knee attacks?
- Nakamura, always. I get a chub every time he lands a knee strike ngl.

Have you read any of the work I've done with the April Character lately and if so what thoughts do you have on progression/improvement of the character?

If you could have one dream match happen that doesn't involve YOU, what would it be and why would you want to see it?

Soup or Salad?

What is one place you want to visit?

Why am I the most handsome on Voltage?

Are you sure you aren’t plotting revenge?

Any PFP dream matches/scenaries for you or anyone else?

Any dudes from Revolt you look forward to facing?

Intial thoughts on the merger and everything that transpired to make it happen?

- Admittedly I haven't read much but that applies to everyone. The Crowe's Nest stable is all round awesome so having April in it, working with Rhyse and Marx will only make the character stronger when it comes to promos.

- Banks vs DDD probably.

- Soup. I'm too fussy of an eater to rock salad.

- New York remains at the top. Both as a place I want to visit and work in.

- You're about as handsome as a poor bugger's remains rotting in the heat of the sun.

- I don't need to plot, I just say and do.

- Over the last 4 years, I haven't really faced the top brass of EAW. I've crossed paths with people in terms of stories or inside an elimination chamber but never had a proper feud with anyone up there. Guys like DDD, Imp, Banks etc, those are the feuds I want for PFP.

- I never took much notice of Revolt before the merge outside of finding out about it. Obviously there's a host of blokes that I faced over the years in EAW that I would like to go around with again but I'm sure with time I'll find out more about the new people purely from Revolt and might be inspired to face them.

- It just fucking sucks man. I hate that it happened but I'm open minded when it comes to this merge and if everything that has happened had to have happened to make EAW stronger, then so be it. The people who left, they're still friends, still mates; I'm just disappointed everything has gone the way it has.

Do you believe there is life outside of this planet

Are you into Australian politics

What is the internet speed like in Australia

Have you ever done booze, weed, narcotics or any other hard drugs and if so please state a memorable experience from it

What is your ideal orgy?

What is your biggest fear in life (heights, snakes, death, etc)

If the government or your workplace wanted you to be implanted with an RFID chip, would you do it and why

Have you ever had a supernatural experience

If my memory serves well you're a Parkway fan... right? Just wanted to know your thoughts on recent singles. I believe the new record drops tomorrow.

Forgive me for being late on these paps :mjcry:

1. Yeah I believe so. The scope of the universe is too grand for there to be any life. The Milky Way has 100 billion stars, the Andromeda Galaxy has an estimated 1 trillion of stars within it and with every star would have multiple planets. When we look at the observable universe, it's so dense with more and more galaxies that again have trillions, could have Quadrillions of stars and beyond what we can observe, there could be galaxies with up with to a Centillion of stars. There's life outside of our planet but whether it's close enough to interact with or not is another story.

2. Not at all. I find our politics and any discussion tied to it to be quite embarrassing and disgraceful. I just vote for the lesser of two evils.

3. Better but still a bit behind the world. I get 50 down and 20 up at peak times which is better than most people in the country.

4. Just weed. Smoked a fair bit of it when I was 17-20 and never really had any memorable experiences. It wasn't something I did often, just every now and then when shit got stressful.

5. Lotta women. I want to be treated like a fucking king.

6. My biggest fear is the possibility of finding myself in a position in life where I'm not capable of supporting those I love. I want stability in my career, in my assets before I start considering starting a family; there was a point before i moved to Melbourne where that fear was closer and closer to becoming a reality.

7. If my employer gave me the option of the chip or or no job, I'd quit and become a freelancer. If the government tried to force the chip on me, I'd probably accept it because I'd rather deal with the that shit then move to a place like New Zealand.

8. I think most of my "paranormal" experiences were exaggerated by paranoia. I've stayed in some dodgy places on trips n such over the years and heard some shit, thought I had seen shit move and whatnot but yeah, paranoia.

If my memory serves well you're a Parkway fan... right? Just wanted to know your thoughts on recent singles. I believe the new record drops tomorrow.
I haven't really listened to them for a bit. I was a pretty big fan back in my teenage years but lately my tastes have slipped further from metalcore. I've heard a few songs from their new album and The Void is a beautiful. Might listen to them in the gym this arvo.

Sup Jamie?

-If you were to book your own match for Pain or Pride (I think that's how it's said), who would you wanna face and why?

-If you were to mentor any newcomers to the EAW scene, who would it be?

-What made you decide to use "Kashmir" by Led Zeppelin as your theme?

Those are the questions. Since we're both on Voltage, we could possibly fight someday. And so, I look forward to it

Imp and I have built a really nice feud thus far and I feel a Pain For Pride match would turn it up another level. There's some nice story elements given where I'm at, how far I've come since joining EAW and what not. I feel our characters mesh well. The other option is Mr. DEDEDE. It's a match people have talked up for fucking years.

Admittedly I haven't been overly focused on who has come and gone recently so my knowledge of newcommers is a bit thin. I'd mentor basically anyone who has a desire to succeed, anyone who has the right attitude towards getting better and improving, who can cop stiff constructive criticism on the chin without a problem.

The melody after the chorus has always stuck with me. The Diddy cover of it is played for a lot of the major rugby league matches here in Australia and I was tempted to use that version before deciding to go with the original. It's unique, it's different I guess from what a lot of people use but ultimately it's iconic. I think I've reached a point where it's tied to my name.

What up Ledge.

Congrats on the Hall of Fame.

Didn't see this asked, and if it was sorry; You currently hold the longest EAW World Championship reign with Ten Fucking Defenses, When it came to accomplishing that, What are/were you thoughts? Any strengths you felt you had going into the 300 Club run, any setbacks/times you felt uncertain about it?

Likewise, you hold the longest New Breed Championship Reign, any advice?

Are you and Cam still CamJamWhaBamSlamandCram lovies?

Will you join the Sherrif as Gaymie O'hara?

Let's say one day you get bored of balor (how can anyone do such a thing idk), but if you were to, what PB would you aim for next, and any changes you would make to your guy?

I took it one day at a time. I didn't think I was going get past Shock Value when I first started the reign and then I did. Didn't think i was going to get into the new years champion and then I did. So on and so forth. I just promoed, put my best into everything I wrote and hope it all stuck. It got tiring, I wasn't overly happy with the direction of the character, I felt like I was being forced into a heel role and suddenly this bloke who was shaping up to being respectable and shit, the character was a cowardly heel that relied on his missus.

Just promo your arse off. Don't burn yourself out weekly, just prioritise your defenses and put everything into those.

Cam is and always will be bae.

Of course. I'm accepting of people of all sexual orientations and helping the Sheriff spread the message of positivity, love, acceptance and tolerance.

Probably Riddle. I was planning to change to him when it seemed like Aren was going to stick around after PFPX. If I wanted to relax on the character a bit, I would take up Adam Brooks and merge the O'Hara and Helms characters a bit.

Hi, Jamie!

How's the weather treating you?

How's the sky looking?

When are you going to expose to the world that you're Eclipse Diemos? :eyes:

Can you stop using the world "lovie"? It's kinda creepy.

Isn't there other alternative words for you to use?

Why am I better than Xav?

Why am I a better best pal to you than Xav?

Why are we better than OTP?

Why wouldn't you let me throw you off the stage while Metallica was performing?

Favorite PFP match(es) that wasn't yours?

Favorite entrance(s) at PFP?

Can you be my e-fed life coach? I'll pay you in beer and snags.

Why are you bae?

Why are you so GOAT?

Who's your favorite serial killer?

What strange thing do you find yourself fascinated about that other people may not get?

Why do the Knights suck?

Do you consider yourself a weeb at heart?

How's the work-life treating you?

How's school too?

On the scale of 1-10, how annoying do you find my pestering in your PMs?

Does it concern you that I will do that much more often?

Do you wonder "what the fuck is wrong with this girl"?

Why am I such a GOAT?

Why won't you accept my lub? :mjcry:

Hula gif > dancing Indian man. Agree to disagree. :hula:

Hi, Jamie!
G'day Cam!

How's the weather treating you?
Cold but no rain which is nice.

How's the sky looking?
Well, today was clear with no clouds. Now it's pitch black but I can see the stars.

When are you going to expose to the world that you're Eclipse Diemos? :eyes:
What's that, lovie?

Can you stop using the world "lovie"? It's kinda creepy.
Would rather not lovie.

Isn't there other alternative words for you to use?
Darling? Honey? Cupcake?

Why am I better than Xav?
You have boobs.

Why am I a better best pal to you than Xav?
See above.

Why are we better than OTP?
Because our DMs aren't us acting out weird anime and hentai shit.

Why wouldn't you let me throw you off the stage while Metallica was performing?
Let me live ffs woman.

Favorite PFP match(es) that wasn't yours?
Banks vs Theron, minus your flog partner and Theron's flog arse.

Favorite entrance(s) at PFP?
I liked my own, despite it not being anything special, it was bittersweet seeing the reaction in the chat. Both Rex and DC were amazing.

Can you be my e-fed life coach? I'll pay you in beer and snags.
Yeah sure.

Why are you bae?
I'm just irresistible.

Why are you so GOAT?
There isn't anything I can't do that's why.

Who's your favorite serial killer?
Given some of the shit you say, I'm sure it's about to be you.

What strange thing do you find yourself fascinated about that other people may not get?
Philosophy. Just the theories that exist that make you question so much. The unanswerable questions in life that you can spend hours thinking of and not even be a pace from where you started. I think that's why I love Westworld so much.

Why do the Knights suck?
Come ask me that in 5 years when we're a dynasty.

Do you consider yourself a weeb at heart?
Not really. I watch NJPW and Dragon Ball Super; that's it. I want to visit Japan but moreso because it's a beautiful place to visit.

How's the work-life treating you?
Fantastic

How's school too?
Equally as good.

On the scale of 1-10, how annoying do you find my pestering in your PMs?
Like a 5.

Does it concern you that I will do that much more often?
Not at all lovie.

Do you wonder "what the fuck is wrong with this girl"?
No, never.

Why am I such a GOAT?
Read my HoF speech again :D

Why won't you accept my lub? :mjcry:
Already do. Why won't you accept mine?
