    Why do you think your time as champ is limited?

    You probably have one of the most original characters with Vox. How you managed to make a Bono-like wrestler interesting is well beyond my human understanding. I'd ask how you came to that idea, but magicians shouldn't reveal their secrets. Instead, I'll ask you this-

    What's your favorite U2 song?

    I feel for you, it so easily could have been me in that position.

    You'll get it back soon enough!

    I'm a Penn and Teller guy, so I'll tell you how and why. I picked someone good but irritating, and that I also genuinely admire and adore. He's a major force of good for the world, but also irritating as sin. Then I kind of went from there. I'm a fairly funny person, which helped, and also the new season of Twin Peaks kind of helped me transition into making better and stronger choices. It added some depth, and an element of not knowing what could come next. It was mostly a chore to read and write, but it built a nice foundation going forward.

    I'll top 5 it,

    5. Where the Streets Have No Name. Seeing it live has been equal to or better any sexual experience I've ever had. It's so energizing in such an interesting way.
    4. Red Flag Day. From the new album, so this is probably recency bias, but this is such a fun tune.
    3. Sunday Bloody Sunday. That. Fucking. Drum. Beat.
    2. In a Little While. Deep but good cut. Joey Ramone listened to it on repeat until he died.
    1. One. It's the greatest song ever written.

    Couldn't have lost it to a better opponent. I wanted to float the idea of a War Zone/Vox feud, mainly because they're so opposite of one another. But I never know how to do that stuff, so I'm glad it happened naturally. I've never been so happy to fail. I just only wish he would have beaten me more decisevely. If you read this, you fucking earned it bud.

    How bad would you kill me if I said I didn't care for U2?

    Whatever makes you happy. I couldn't stand them through most of high school. Then a girl got me into them, and 10 years later I see em live whenever I can. It's the best show you can see.

    That said, I can't understand how people can't like at least a couple of their songs. They're so well constructed. Just magic.

    I can tolerate a few of them but that's mostly for my wife's sake, she loves them

    Not a question, but a compliment. Vox has been one of my favorite characters in recent memory because of how well he lends himself to the absurd. I always enjoy when a guy writes his character and doesn't need him taken seriously.

    Have you ever considered adding a little Hulk Hogan element to the character? By that I mean those outrageous claims Hogan has made over the years, like how Metallica originally wanted him to be their bass player, or how the UFC was ready to steal him away from pro wrestling to compete in the octagon, or how Elvis was his biggest fan and would personally reserve seats to his Memphis matches, despite Elvis dying a full two years before Hogan ever wrestled in Memphis?

    I did at one point, actually. (I checked Hogan into a hotel once, and he told me three whoppers in the 15 minutes that I talked with him. It owned. He rules). But I couldn't figure out a way to make it charming enough while also being stupid and obvious. I wanted to do a take off from My Cousin Vinny (Where Vinny says he defended the Son of Sam, gets questioned on it, then says he defended the first guy they arrested, got him off, then they found the real guy). I think it was going to be something like Vox had saved George Harrison from getting stabbed, someone would bring up that Harrison got stabbed so I didn't save anyone, and I would have Vox quickly pivot saying that he had done it before the stabbing that actually occurred.
