Erick Rowan appeared with Sportskeeda’s Stephanie Chase earlier today for a question-and-answer session that covered many aspects of his wrestling career. In particular, discussions shifted to his latest gadget before he left WWE, the Caged Spider that appeared on RAW for months. As you might expect, not even WWE knew what was going to happen inside when the gadget first started.

I had my first match on RAW against Seth and it was a false count anywhere and they left me strong in that match. Then I was sent to the UK and was told I was carrying a cage, asked what was in it and was told you would find out.

Originally, Creative’s speech was that the cage would contain a rodent of some sort. He was going to be killed by an unspecified babyface champion, but the champion turned on his heel, so the trick was extended. “They just kept expanding it, expanding it, expanding it.

Finally, the spider we’ve all seen has hit RAW. If it depended on Rowan, however, it would have been something much more.

I had ideas on top. One was this actress in American Horror Story, the smallest woman of all time. She was an American Horror Story freakshow. One idea was to build a slightly larger cage and when unveiled it would be this slightly smaller woman. she and I would be friends and I would protect her from the atrocities of the outside world by locking her in the cage.

Erick Rowan, who now goes through Erick Redbeard, also entered WWE to contact him for the recent Wyatt Swamp Fight during the interview. You can watch the full conversation embedded below:
