Former WWE Superstar and current AEW star Chris Jericho made headlines when it was announced he would be the latest guest for ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin’s Broken Skulls Sessions podcast.
While speaking to Busted Open Radio, Jericho talked about his recent appearance on the podcast, shedding more details on the same. Jericho revealed that he wouldn’t have done the podcast in the first place if Le Champion couldn’t talk about his career in AEW.
“Nobody really knew what to expect,” Jericho said. “It did come completely out of left field. The opening line of the show, if you’ve seen it, I said ‘I can’t believe there’s not snipers on the roof to take me out. I can’t believe I’m the show!’ But yeah; what a kind of monumental, groundbreaking moment that was for sure.”
“I wouldn’t have done the show if it wasn’t to talk about my whole career, including AEW. There’d be no benefits for me to do the show just to go on and talk about old things I had done in WWE. And Steve wouldn’t have had me on either. So we were both very adamant that if we’re going to do this, let’s do it right. And I wouldn’t do anything that wasn’t exactly the way I wanted it, and it turned out just perfectly.
The latest episode of the podcast would turn out to be one of the best episodes so far as Jericho shed light on a lot of topics. Chris Jericho is currently engaged in a feud with The Pinnacle in AEW, which will culminate in a Blood & Guts match next month on AEW Dynamite.
