Robert Davis is a semi-retired American podcaster and musician. He is considered a veteran on the Max Wrestling Podcast and is a member of the death metal band Grave Defier.
Davis is a two-time former Predictions Champion and competed in every Max Wrestling promo tournament until King Of The Mic 2020. Together with The Demoness, he forms "The Blackhearts".
After already having an affinity for cutting promos in character as "Crazy Eyes", Davis was a natural choice to join Max Wrestling promo tournaments. He competed in the original Promo Climax in 2018, picking up victories over Tedd P Dinero, Tony Curkendall and Mike Larkin. His only loss in the tournament came at the hands of eventual winner, Emir Costello. As the runners-up of their respective blocks, Davis faced Moni Lynn at Promo Series 3: Enemy Lines for the right to later challenge the new Promo Champion, which Lynn won.
Davis gained some revenge when he was drawn against Moni Lynn in the first round of the first King Of The Mic tournament in 2019, and took a victory back. He gained further revenge by defeating Costello in the semi-finals before falling to Larkin in the final - though both had already agreed to both go through to challenge the Promo Champion at PromoSlam 4 beforehand. Davis competed against Larkin, Travis Anderson and champion, The B****** at PromoSlam 4 for the Promo Championship, which was won by Larkin.
Davis returned for Promo Climax 2, defeating Daniel Crimmins followed by Tedd P Dinero. The following week, he was defeated by new rising star The Demoness - their bout became known as the "Showdown In The Shadows" due to both of their dark characteristics. Davis later defeated Zack Herring before taking another loss to Mike Larkin in final match of the blocks.
At Podcast Promo Rumble 5 in January 2020, Davis and The Demoness faced off for the second time in "Showdown In The Shadows Part II", with the winner going on to face the winner of Cypher
and Tedd P Dinero, which The Demoness won - as it turned out, his match with The Demoness would be Davis' final competitive match.
Illness and Exhibitions
Davis was a late entrant in the Promo League in 2020, and was due to face Travis Anderson at Trivia Takeover 5.0: Champion's Chase. However, before he could compete, Davis became seriously ill. He chose to be very public about his condition and continuously kept social media users informed of his treatment and recovery.
At the Maxies Awards in 2020, Davis was chosen as the surprise partner of Daniel Crimmins in a tag team promo exhibition against Anderson and his surprise partner, The Jester. During the off-season, Davis took part in a promo exhibition with Cypher in February 2021. The following month, Davis and Crimmins faced off in a promo exhibition.
His seemingly final appearance came on the PromoMania VI Pre-Launch Show where Davis faced Travis Anderson in a promo exhibition - which featured a surprise appearance by Impact star, Father James Mitchell - who placed a curse on "The Blackhearts." Davis subsequently left the Promo Order
after this match.
Davis made a surprise appearance at PromoSlam 2021, assisting The Demoness in resurrecting The Kingpin for his promo exhibition with The Jester.
