After Chris Jericho left WWE for the All Elite Wrestling, it never seemed like the former Nine Times WWE IC Champion would ever go to WWE ever again.
But it did not happen as it looked, fortunately. The 50 year old recently joined the Broken Skull Sessions of Stone Cold Steve Austin in WWE. Even though this stuff only takes place backstage but it was one of the most shocking moments of this year so far.
But there was nothing too controversial spoken as it was clearly predicted by most of the wrestling pundits. It went more like the Hall of Fame induction of Jeff Jarrett. But things were pretty fun on the Broken Skull Sessions and the anticipation of the fans paid off quite a bit.
Chris Jericho recently appeared on Busted Open Radio where he discussed his interview on the Broken Skull Sessions. He said how he and Steve Austin were adamant to get it done;
We were both adamant about how we wanted the show to be done, but if a certain 73-year-old [Vince McMahon] wakes up one day and goes, ‘What? I never said that,’ the whole thing could be changed and wiped off the face of the earth.
There was a lot of trust from Vince and Tony Khan towards both Steve and myself, knowing we wouldn’t go that way. There was no reason to talk about things that were going to bury either side. It was a very positive interview. It was a lot of trust afforded to us. The moment Vince said, ‘do it,’ he knew what we’d be talking about.
If it was anybody else, I don’t know if we would be afforded the same trust and there may have been more ‘snakey snakey,’ but I had Steve’s word and Steve had my word that we would do our best to do a great show. There was no reason to tear anyone down and that’s why it pretty much aired exactly as we spoke. I don’t think much was edited out, a couple of lines here and there, probably ten minutes out of the two hours plus that we talked and that was more for time purposes.
Jericho is now heading towards a feud with the AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and the AEW fans are badly waiting to see this epic feud. Jericho’s involvement in the Inner Circle stable is also quite interesting. We hope to get the best outcome of it.
