It's an honor to welcome one of my all-time favorites, RAVEN to the show. Throughout his career, Raven hit all the major promotions – WWE, WCW, ECW and has some awesome stories to tell and created one of the most unique characters of the 90s. We talk about how the grunge scene in the 90s influenced his character, his favorite music (some picks may surprise you), his time working as a producer for WWF (at the time), how wrestlers dress, the current season of Saturday Night Live, comedy and his current gig – being the host of The Raven Effect podcast.
Check out previous Squared Circle Pit interviews about wrestling with Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Chris Jericho, former WCW boss Eric Bischoff, NJPW star Kenny Omega, WWE Hall of Famer Bubba Ray Dudley, Cannibal Corpse's George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher, Jamey Jasta, Every Time I Die's Andy Williams, Zakk Wylde, Killswitch Engage's Mike D, Converge's Jacob Bannon, Neurosis' Scott Kelly, former WWE head writer and Dethklok co-creator Tommy Blacha, former WWE announcer Justin Roberts, ROH star Frankie Kazarian, EVOLVE booker and former ROH booker Gabe Sapolsky, and more.
