Chris Van Vliet Says He Didn’t Apply For A Job With AEW

WSVN-TV’s Chris Van Vliet, who recently signed with AEW as the company’s backstage interviewer, was recently interviewed by Gary Cassidy of Sportskeeda on a number of topics including how he ended up signing with AEW. You can check out the highlights of the interview below along with a video of the entire interview:

On how he signed with AEW: “It’s crazy for me as a broadcaster by job, a wrestling fan by nature – kind of the marriage of coming together to be the backstage interviewer. The debut show, AEW on TNT. I didn’t apply for the job, I think it was just through the series of interviews I had done with Chris Jericho that led to an interview with Tony Khan, which led to another interview with Cody, another with the Bucks – and, yeah, I think it just kind of came together through that and, man, I’m super excited about it.”

On whether his contract means he will only interview AEW talent going forward: “I honestly don’t know. So, for now, I’m going to keep interviewing everybody that I can interview, nothing’s changed for me. I just did interviews at an Impact Wrestling show at the weekend, and it was great. I was welcomed there by everybody, so I’d like to continue doing things as I have. I’ve been doing wrestling interviews for 12 years. I’ve had a YouTube channel for eight and a half. I don’t plan for that to change.”

On which talents he looks forward to working with most: “I’ve been really fortunate to work with a lot of the talent or at least interview them, have them on my podcast, or on my YouTube channel. I’m very interested to see how another interview with MJF’s going to go. He has famously branded me Chris Van Vleurgh, and not a single day goes by when someone doesn’t tweet that to me or direct message me that on Instagram so it will be interesting to see what happens when I have an interview with him.”
