ECW Legend Tries To Get Unsigned Band Vorzug Signed To Relapse Records, Fails.
As a teen, my two favorite wrestlers were ECW stars Raven and Sabu. Raven is arguably one of the most metal wrestlers of all time, sporting Melvis tees (above), as well as Nevermore and Sanctuary tees, among others, while grappling. But that was 20 years ago. What's Raven up to now? Well, besides the occassional indy date, he recently recorded a video on behalf of unsigned death metal act, Vorzug, basically threatening Relapse Records if they don't sign them. In an age where unsigned bands will do anything to get notice, these guys certainly get points for originality. The video is pretty hilarious:
The Relapse office sent us this video and we couldn't help but have a great laugh over it. We actually went and checked out Vorzug, but sadly, they are not too good:
Raven wasn't the first guy to record a video for them, they got Hacksaw Jim Duggan signing happy birthday, as well as Tawny Kitaen and Angie Everheart:
If you want Raven to shill for your band, wedding or bar mitzvah, all you gotta do is pony up $25 and a video message is yours.
