Squared Circle Pit #103 - Fozzy's Rich Ward Talks Playing Wembley, WCW Cameos in Stuck Mojo Video

"The Duke" himself, Rich Ward, guitarist of Fozzy, steps into the Squared Circle Pit and jokes he "owns some property" at the intersection of rock and pro wrestling. We jump right in to discussing Stuck Mojo's WCW crossover back in the day, his love of wrestling and metal as a kid, how he picked up the guitar, his love of music and touring, how he watched pro wrestling on the road, linking up with Chris Jericho to form Fozzy and how the band keeps busy on off-days when Jericho is wrestling. Ward also discusses what it felt like opening for Iron Maiden, performing with Bruce Dickinson, and the insane rush of Fozzy performing at Wembley Stadium as Chris Jericho made his entrance for his big match.
