The #WhoWouldWin Team!


James Gavsie

A life long connoisseur of all things geek, nerdy, and sci-fi James continues to enjoy discussing hypothetical matchups between characters from two completely different genres.

Realizing that there was a lot of merit to the idea James pitched Who Would Win to producers and was told to create a viable ‘proof of concept’ and thus the #WhoWouldWin podcast was born.

Less than a year later, the #WhoWouldWin podcast has taken off in popularity and is consistently ranked high on iTunes while being enjoyed by thousands of people around the world.

While not podcasting James is often found instructing MMA classes at Max Impact Martial Arts, his training facility in Los Angeles, or producing content for digital and linear platforms, as well as being a spokesperson for both anti-bullying and women’s self-defense.

Ray Stakenas

Ray has always lived his own life in his own way. A lifelong gamer, debater, and connoisseur of all things nerd culture, Ray was born to publicly argue about which fictional character would defeat another.

After finishing college in the barren wasteland of the Midwest, Ray did what every young, angry, educated person does…He went to pro wrestling school to become the paragon of manhood that he is today.

In his spare time, Ray really likes winning. He has won tournaments/championships in wrestling, gaming, poetry slam, poker, and even was his High School class President once for the laughs.

Ray is excited about this next chapter and invites each and every one of you to enjoy the journey of what will be a bumpy ride.
