Squared Circle Pit #9 – SLIPKNOT's Corey Taylor Talks Pro Wrestling, Slapping Baron Corbin

Corey Taylor talked pro wrestling and it was glorious!


When I started this podcast, one of my dream guests was Slipknot's Corey Taylor. I was able to get a short window of time with Corey on the phone, as he is out on the road on Slipknot's massive summer tour. Corey talks about how he got into wrestling in the 80s through N.W.A., his favorite pro wrestlers, his thoughts on the current scene, attending this past WWE Monday In The Bank live, how pro wrestlers inspire his onstage persona, as well as the backstage story of how his altercation with NXT star Baron Corbin came about.

If you missed the altercation, here's video of it:
