• Tony Khan On Why He Allowed Chris Jericho To Appear On Broken Skull Sessions
AEW President Tony Khan recently appeared as a guest on Busted Open Radio, where he was asked about current All Elite Wrestling Superstar Chris Jericho appearing on the newest episode of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions on the WWE Network on Peacock.
Here’s what Khan had to say about one of his biggest stars showing up for the competition:
“Basically what happened was I had never even considered this was going to be a possibility, when I heard from Chris that this was something they wanted to do.
I had to think about it for a minute.
He and Steve had apparently talked, and Steve asked Chris if he had interest in this program, or I guess they had a conversation and it came up, but when Chris brought it up to me, at first I was taken aback because Chris doing something on Peacock on WWE’s channel is obviously going to give me pause.
But when he said it was Steve hosting the show, I didn’t have to think very hard about it.
Busted Open is an independent show. I really like being on with you guys. I really trust you and these times we have together, and and I really feel that way about Steve.
Even though Steve works for WWE and even though that’s another wrestling company that we compete with, I trust Steve immensely, and obviously, I trust Chris.
Just like I would trust Chris to do a great job on Busted Open, I trust him to do a great job with Steve, and I trust Steve as a great interviewer.
They’re both friends of mine, and I feel like it’s probably going to be a very good show, I haven’t watched it yet, but Chris told me I’m really going to like it, and it’s a great chance for us to go out and promote AEW to a different set of fans.
I was all for it, and definitely Steve being the host had a lot to do with that.”

• Old School WWF Diva Celebrates Her Birthday
Old School WWF Attitude Era Diva Lita (Real name: Amy Dumas) turns 46 today.
After being trained in Mexico and becoming a valet in Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling under the name “Miss Congeniality”, Lita joined the World Wrestling Federation in 2000 and instantly became the valet of Essa Rios, and later The Hardy Boyz, which led to a real life romance and relationship with Matt Hardy, that lasted for a couple of years.
During the late Attitude Era, Lita also evolved into a professional wrestler, who eventually ended up winning the WWF/E Women’s Championship on 4 occasions until her semi-retirement in 2006.
She was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014 by fellow Attitude Era Diva Trish Stratus.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITA!
