Jericho is joined on today’s show by his friend, Jack Slade.
Jericho informs that his wrestling name was almost Jack when he started at first. He was going to be called Jack Action, and one day he was practicing his autograph and Lance Storm saw it and told him it was a terrible name.
Jericho informs that he’s been practically banned from WWE at this point. He wanted to get a few WWE superstars on his podcast to promote WrestleMania but was told from a high-up person in the company that it wasn’t appropriate now that he’s signed with AEW.
Before getting into his WrestleMania predictions, Jericho shares his thoughts on some of this year’s Hall of Fame inductees. He thinks Honky Tonk Man and Brutus the Barber Beefcake are worthy inductees.
He notes that while Torrie Wilson isn’t undeserving of her induction, she came from a “bra & panties” era of women’s wrestling when the main event was never an option for women. He thinks women inductees will be easier and easier for WWE to identify in the future as women like Rousey, Lynch and Charlotte break down boundaries and solidify themselves as bonafide Hall of Famers.
