Jericho Says Forbidden Door Was Opened Further With WWE Show

Top AEW Star Chris Jericho recently spoke with Stephanie Chase of DigitalSpy on his recent appearance on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions podcast with WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Jericho said both Vince McMahon and Tony Khan did have to give their approvals, but he thinks both of them do trust him and Stone Cold and they know that they are not going to do something that will bury or ruin either of their reputations or companies or talk about a bunch of s–t that doesn’t matter.

Chris Jericho also said he gives WWE credit for allowing that and for allowing him to be on the show, and as far as edits go, WWE didn’t have any involvement, so they went about 2 hours and seven minutes on the show without any edits or changes done.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“No.” “Both Vince [McMahon] and Tony [Khan] had to give their approval. But I think they both trust me and they trust Steve [Austin] and know that we’re not going to do some kind of a wonton burial or talk about a bunch of s–t that doesn’t matter. I never would have done this show and Steve would have never had me on the show if the idea wasn’t to talk about my whole career because that’s what people want to hear about.”

“I give WWE credit for allowing that, for allowing me to be on the show. There was no involvement as far as edits, we went two hours and seven minutes on the show. I don’t think we talked much longer, maybe another 10 minutes or 15 minutes and most of that stuff was taken out just for time constraints. I know there’s some bonus stories they’re going to be putting up.” “But it wasn’t like they had to cut anything that we said because everything that we said was the truth and it was real.”

Chris Jericho then said he thinks he and Austin blew people’s minds due to them talking about AEW and more importantly, they started talking about AEW at the beginning of the show. Jericho also said that Steve Austin and himself both thought that was the best way to do the podcast because so many pundits and critics were like, “They’ll never talk about AEW.”

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“I think we blew people’s minds that a) we talked about AEW and b) more importantly that we started talking AEW at the beginning.” “Steve and I both thought that was the best way to do it because so many pundits and critics were like, ‘They’ll never talk about AEW,’ and when we led off the show with that topic, I think it really hooked people to be going, ‘Holy smokes they talked about AEW! What else are they going to talk about?’”

Chris Jericho then said he is most proud of the fact that he did it, that Chris Jericho appeared on a WWE program and that it was a very groundbreaking moment, that announcement. Jericho also said it did blow a lot of people’s mind’s and that’s what he enjoys doing.

Jericho then said so to him, the fact that it was him that kind of opened that “forbidden door” further, he takes great pride in that.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“I’m most proud of the fact that I did it, that Chris Jericho appeared on a WWE program. It was a very groundbreaking moment, that announcement.” “It blew a lot of people’s mind’s and that’s what I enjoy doing. I enjoy doing the unexpected where people see things or they go, ‘Holy smokes Jericho did that. What else can this guy do?'”

“So to me, just the fact that it was me that kind of opened that ‘forbidden door’ quote-unquote, even further. I take great pride in that. Once again, it’s another thing that Chris Jericho did that probably nobody else could do at this point in time and I like that. I get off on that.”
