• Steve Austin On What Vince McMahon Said When He Asked About Chris Jericho Appearing On Broken Skull Sessions
AEW Superstar Chris Jericho will return to WWE programming on April 11th, when he appears on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions on the WWE Network on Peacock.
During an interview with Sports Illustrated, WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin had the following to say about his interview with the fellow Attitude Era Legend:
“Having someone from [AEW] on a WWE show, especially the caliber of Chris Jericho, is pretty damn cool. 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.
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.’ And he said he’d love to do it, so I checked with Vince [McMahon] 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.”
