Chris Jericho to appear on "Broken Skull Sessions" with Steve Austin.
No, this is not a late April Fools Day prank!
It has been announced that the next star to appear on "Stone Cold" Steve Austins "Broken Skull Session" will be none other the first ever AEW World Champion, Chris Jericho!
Both Tony Khan and Vince Mcmahon have both approved of Jerichos appearance on WWE programming.
WWE had made the official announcement earlier today via their WWE Network Twitter account. The show will make it's premier on April 11th, which is the same night as Wrestlemania 37 (night 2)
In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated Austin had this to say:
“Having someone from there on a WWE show, especially the caliber of Chris Jericho, is pretty damn cool,” Austin said. “Chris spent almost 20 years in WWE. When you talk about best runs in the history of the business, Chris Jericho’s name is going to come up.”
Austin went on to say that he had received a text message from Jericho following the session with the Undertaker.
“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,’” Austin stated.. “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’ And he said he’d love to do it, so I checked with Vince about it.”
Austin continued and stated that he'd sent a text to Vince McMahon, who in turn approved of Jericho's appearance. The owner of AEW, Tony Khan had confirmed that he was fine with his appearance on WWE programming.
“I texted Vince and said we had this badass idea about Jericho coming on the show,” Austin said.. “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.” said Austin.
This can be considered a huge interview for the Broken Skull sessions.
