Squared Circle Pit #24 – Arda Ocal, Former WWE Announcer Talks Metal and WWE


I'm so excited to finally have my friend Arda Ocal on the show. Arda is a lifelong metal and pro wrestling fan, and we discuss his fandom journey in both recreations and also his incredible journey from intern at a Canadian cable channel to a full-time WWE announcer. Arda shares some great stories from his time at WWE and also offers some top-notch advice for people looking to make it as an announcer, and honestly, the advice can be applied to anybody looking to climb a corporate ladder.
