SquaredCirclePit-Jacob-Bannon-Converge

This week, I had a chance to speak with one of my wishlist guests, Converge frontman Jacob Bannon. I got a chance to catch up with Jacob before Converge's killer set at House of Vans in Brooklyn, NY yesterday to talk a whole lot of 1980s wrestling. We talked Jim Crockett Promotions, Mid-Atlantic, WWF. Jacob shares a story of going to a Kerry Von Erich autograph signing, watching World Championship Wrestling at 6:05 on Saturdays, and, of course, Ric Flair. We wrap up the show talking about Brock Lesnar's UFC fight this weekend.

Check out previous Squared Circle Pit interviews about wrestling with Jamey Jasta, Every Time I Die's Andy Williams, Zakk Wylde, Killswitch Engage's Mike D, and more.
