Recently, Norman Pattiz made an announcement that left the majority of PodcastOne fans all smiles. In the announcement, the PodcastOne founder and executive chairman revealed that the advertising podcast network had finalized a deal that would see Scott Levy join them later this year. Levy, a WWE superstar, is famous for his finishing move while in the ring dubbed the Raven Effect. Norman made the announcement in the company of another WWE superstar, Chris Jericho, whose Jericho Network show runs on PodcastOne.
The Raven Effect
The Raven Effect will be a segment in Jericho Network where discussions will revolve around conspiracies, politics, current affairs, and pop culture. Scott, a self-proclaimed idiot, will also be at liberty to bring any topic or panel of his choice for discussion. The show will have weekly one-hour episodes that will be made available every Monday on iTunes as well as on both PodcastOne app and website. With this development, both PodcastOne and Jericho Network are bound for future success.
A Word from the Chairman
Speaking shortly after making the big announcement, Pattiz heaped praises on Chris Jericho for his brilliance and good masterly ability. He noted that he was impressed by the job Chris was doing at Jericho Network, particularly being able to comfortably navigate through other different topics outside the world of wrestling. Pattiz was also optimistic that the Raven Effect would be the next big thing.
Chris Jericho, on the other hand, could not hide his joy regarding the issue, especially because he was given a chance to work side by side with his fellow WWE superstar. He revealed that for the few decades that he has known Scott, he could only describe him as entertaining, intelligent, and hilarious. With that, he promised PodcastOne fans that Scott was the perfect bet for the position.
The Jericho Network show is centered on music, sports, wrestling, and pop-culture. Among the shows that have aired on the program includes, among others, Keeping It 100, Killing the Town with Storm & Cyrus, and Team Tiger Awesome.
