When Stone Cold Steve Austin said that he was going to “go into everything” with Chris Jericho on the upcoming episode of Broken Skull Sessions, it clearly wasn’t just a soundbite.
Speculation has been rife since it was announced that Jericho was set to appear on the show over whether AEW wouldn’t be allowed to be mentioned. But we can now safely say that will not be the case.
During the trailer, which shows a series of rapid fire questions dubbed “The list of Jericho,” the first ever AEW World Champion names fellow AEW star Sammy Guevara as one of his favourite tag team partners.
Jericho also names Shawn Michaels and Kevin Owens as his favourite opponents, before calling his show stealing effort with HBK at WrestleMania 19 his favourite WrestleMania moment.
Following the announcement that Jericho would be appearing on the show, Steve Austin explained how Vince McMahon approved the move.
“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.”
