• “It shows Vince McMahon isn’t afraid of AEW at all” – CM Punk
Current AEW Superstar Chris Jericho’s interview with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin on Broken Skull Sessions will air on the WWE Network this Sunday.
TMZ Sports interviewed former WWE wrestler CM Punk and asked his thoughts on Jericho’s return to WWE programming.
Below are the highlights from this interview:
What he thinks about Jericho appearing on Broken Skull Sessions:
“I think it’s interesting for sure. Honestly, my major reaction and opinion on it is I think that it shows Vince McMahon isn’t afraid of AEW at all because if he was, he wouldn’t allow that to happen.”
If Austin & Jericho will openly discuss AEW:
“It feels like it’s gonna be softball questions. I don’t know if they’re going to ask Jericho all the tough questions — and nor do I think that they possibly should.
It will probably just be like a feel-good interview. They’ll talk about Jericho’s past at WWE, I’m sure they’ll mention AEW but they won’t get into the hard questions that I think a lot of people would be interested in.”
If this interview is a good thing for both WWE & AEW:
“Anytime anybody’s talking about you, it’s good. There will be people who don’t know AEW exists who will watch it and say, ‘Oh wow cool, I didn’t know that, I just thought Jericho was retired.’
But, there is also something to be said about keeping your guys special and the only place you can see the superstar is on my television show.
It’s new age and I think both companies need all the eyeballs they can get at the moment so kudos to everybody involved.”
