Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I'd be interviewing Maynard James Keenan of Puscifer and Tool about pro wrestling, but here we are. We hopped on the phone to talk about his interest in the genre, how he got into Lucha, his early memories of wrestling including Mighty Igor (clip below), the correlation between being a wrestling and a frontman and his upcoming autobiography, A Perfect Union of Contrary Things, out November 8th.
Check out previous Squared Circle Pit interviews about wrestling with Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Jamey Jasta, Every Time I Die's Andy Williams, Zakk Wylde, Killswitch Engage's Mike D, Converge's Jacob Bannon, Neurosis' Scott Kelly, and more.
