Former ECW, WCW and TNA star Raven was recently interviewed by Chris Jericho for his Talk Is Jericho podcast. During this interview, Raven talked about why he thought Hulk Hogan vs. Vince McMahon was the best match at WrestleMania 19 and why he left WWE in the early 1990s when he was Johnny Polo. Here are the highlights.
On why he thought Hogan vs. McMahon was the best match at WrestleMania 19:
“[Jericho] and Michaels had a phenomenal match, but I still thought that the best match, no offense, on the card was Hulk and Vince because Vince’s facials and they didn’t have 20 minutes of false finishes. I think they had just a comeback and go home, right? But I remember there was this one spot where Vince picked something up and he peers. Like, his head pops up and he’s peering over across the ring and the camera picks it up and I’m like, ‘oh, what a shot!’”
On why he left WWE in the early 1990s when he was Johnny Polo:
“Nobody leaves this company on their own terms. I did, so that was heat. Then, there [were] some other things that I can’t get into that were heat and so it was a whole confluence of things that were partially my fault, definitely partially my fault, and just circumstances. They made the policy that talent couldn’t sleep with the office people. I was proud of that.”
