Ladies and Gentlemen This Is The Recent Q&A We Have Done With Jack Sexsmith, Enjoy!
1. So a nice easy one to start of with, how did you first get into wrestling as a performer?
I began studying under Justin Richards some years ago but my progression was halted after I endure an ACL rupture that required a knee reconstruction.
I started to train again in 2015 at the Projo under the likes of Eddie Dennis, Darrell Allen, James Davis and Jimmy Havoc.
2. Who has been your favourite opponent so far?
Tough question. Jimmy Havoc and Paul Robinson are two people I’m honoured to say I was able to compete against. I felt blessed to have worked Pete Dunne who is possibly the best in the world but I’d have to say my two bouts with Zack Gibson means he’s my favourite. The emotion we invoked was really rather special.
3. Have you or do you ever get any backlash over your character?
Scarcely. Most fans are aware of my sexuality and appreciate my want to represent my community as best I can. Truthfully I expected far more homophobia and that just has not been the case, which is humbling and life affirming.
4. What was the response when you came out as a pansexual wrestler originally?
I think it was largely intrigue. There has, to my knowledge, been very few positive protagonists outside of the heteronorm in BritWres: indeed worldwide. I wasn’t and still am not the finished article as a performer but by being strong enough to be me in the hyper-masculine world of professional wrestling, people seemed to take notice.
5. Who would you like to face next?
John Cena #PayMe!!!
6. What would be your dream match with absolutely no restrictions?
John Cena #PAAAAAYYYYMEEEEEEE!!!!
7. Where would be your dream promotion to wrestle for?
WWE. I grew up like I expect the most of us did watching it. It’s the biggest platform in the game and what better stage to get across my pro LGBTQ message? 🏳️🌈
8. What’s your favourite cheese?
Cheddar. I am a simple, simple creature.
9. You made your wrestling debut in 2015, and already have become one of the fastest rising stars in the UK, did you think it would all happen so quick for?
Not on your nelly. I try and stay humble despite how swiftly things have happened. I feel I am aware of my strengths and weaknesses, and do all I can to get the reactions I want.
The tables match I have with Roy Johnson against The South Pacific Power Trip was a real turning point for me. From there I have received opportunities I didn’t feel worthy of at the time but I think I delivered each time.
10. How did the Mr Cocko come about? And how did it come across to fans and other wrestlers the first time it happened?
Tragically this one the mind child of my former friend Sebastian. The less said about him the better.
A lot of talent weren’t too eager to get involved before the move was better known 🙈😂 I think fans moved quite quickly from being grossed out to laughing along with it, which I am very thankful for.
11. When you’re not wrestling what do you like to get up to in your spare time, what hobbies have you?
I am a football fan. I will head down to the Emirates to be disappointed by my beloved Arsenal whenever I can snag a ticket. I have taken to speaking at LGBTQ events lately and am absolutely loving that. Mostly just enjoy geeking out with friends and family.
12. Before you go out to wrestle have you any rituals you must do?
I don’t affiliate myself to any organised faith but I will say a little prayer to myself before my music hits.
13. If you weren’t wrestling were do you believe you would have ended up? Or was wrestling the main dream growing up? And if so who was it that inspired you?
Were it not for wrestling I’d probably be trying to work my way up the ladder of the care industry. I always enjoyed my time supporting the elderly or adults with LD and think I would stuck with that. I have always enjoyed wrestling but was probably too insecure to think I had anything to offer as a youngster growing up. I used to play football for Charlton Athletic and Stevenage when a boy but swiftly learned I didn’t have the skill set to make that grade 😂
14. And finally do you have any advice for anyone looking to become wrestlers?
React to everything as you would do in a fight on the street, find something that others can identify with by way of character and train everywhere you can.
