AEW star Chris Jericho will be the guest on “Broken Skull Sessions” hosted by Steve Austin. The show will stream Sunday, April 11 on WWE Network and Peacock. Austin released a teaser video that can be viewed below.
Powell’s POV: This is a cool surprise. It’s nice to see that WWE and AEW officials obviously signed off on this. It’s a great hook for WWE Network and Peacock, and it’s another buzz worthy moment for Jericho and AEW. Hey, maybe this will make fans who feel they need to pick sides between AEW and WWE stop treating pro wrestling like a team sport. Okay, probably not, but it’s still a fun development.

This is a good thing for wwe and peacock to get more subscriptions for the network.
Jericho is a washed up has been in 2021. austin is a has been himself at the age 56.
Some gullible wrestling fans will see this “interview” as a set up to a jericho vs. austin match. too bad wheel chair wrestling closed down in 2001.
In aew, jericho vs. austin vs. sting would be a big match ; the participants ages will be a combined 170.
Take your meds, Ted. You sound angry. For the record, their combined ages are 168.
Why don’t you take your meds, moron. I am just stating facts that jericho is a washed up has been in 2021.
austin has been retired for 18 years and moronic fans still think he is going to have another match or take his stupid beer truck to aew.
Vince will have the interview edited to eliminate any aew references.
jericho being in aew has zero impact in wwe because jericho’s prime years are behind him.
Sting is 62. wwe is not shedding any tears over this old fossil Sting’s ability to con a money mark nerdy man child out of some of his billionaire daddy’s allowance money.
Why don’t you take your china virus vaccine? Maybe it will kill off your remaining brain cells. For the record, the com bined ages of old man sting., beer belly austin and washed up fat boy jericho will be 170 by the end of 2021.
Seems like a good indication that Vince isn’t threatened by AEW as a competitor. If he was he wouldn’t be bringing would one of that company’s most recognizable stars onto one of his platforms.
Actually Jericho will ALWAYS be seen as more of a wwe star than an aew star because jericho spoent almost 20 years in wwe. From 1999 to 2018, he was on wwe tv. wwe does not see a 50 year old jericho slumming in aew as a threat.
