As previously noted, AEW’s Chris Jericho will be the next guest on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions which premieres Sunday, April 11th on Peacock/WWE Network.
In an interview with SI.com, Steve Austin explained how the interview was set up…
“I was having a beer one night after my Broken Skull Sessions interview with The Undertaker aired, and out of the blue, Chris Jericho reached out and said, ‘Man, that was a great interview.’ I sent him back a couple of those emojis, one of a beer mug and the other of an eagle, and then he called me right then and there. We got to talking. I’ve always respected the hell out of his career, and I’m glad they’re around—it gives the guys and girls in professional wrestling more places to work. I said, ‘I’d love to have you on the show.’ He said he’d love to do it, so I checked with Vince about it.”
“I texted Vince and said we had this badass idea about Jericho coming on the show. Vince goes, ‘It’s cool. Go ahead.’ But me and Vince don’t always do well with phones and texts and all that, so I texted one more time, ‘Are you sure it’s OK to have Chris Jericho on the show?’ Vince gave me the thumbs up, and Chris came out to do the show.”
“We go into everything. Jericho is one of the all-time greats, and it’s going to be cool to have someone from AEW on a WWE show. To bottom line it, I’m excited for people to watch this show.”
Chris Jericho is returning to the WWE Network. Jericho, who is one of the driving forces of All Elite Wrestling, will be the guest on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions on the network following the second night of WrestleMania 37 on Sunday.
