Khan On Why He Agreed To Jericho Appearing On Broken Skull

All Elite Wrestling President and CEO Tony Khan recently appeared as a guest on Busted Open Radio with Dave LaGreca and Tommy Dreamer, where top AEW Star Chris Jericho appearing as the next guest of Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions podcast was discussed and why Khan agreed to Jericho making an appearance on the show.

This is what Tony Khan said:

“Basically what happened was I had never even considered this was going to be a possibility.” “When I heard from Chris [Harrington] that this was something they wanted to do. I had to think about it for a minute. He and Steve had apparently talked, and Steve asked Chris if he had interest in this program, or I guess they had a conversation and it came up, but when Chris brought it up to me, at first I was taken aback because Chris doing something on Peacock on WWE’s channel is obviously going to give me pause.”

“But when he said it was Steve hosting the show, I didn’t have to think very hard about it. Busted Open is an independent show. I really like being on with you guys. I really trust you and these times we have together, and I really feel that way about Steve. Even though Steve works for WWE and even though that’s another wrestling company that we compete with, I trust Steve immensely, and obviously, I trust Chris. Just like I would trust Chris to do a great job on Busted Open, I trust him to a great job with Steve, and I trust Steve as a great interviewer.”

Tony Khan then talked about both Stone Cold and Chris Jericho being friends of his, and he feels like the show is probably going to be a very good show. The AEW CEO also talked about him not watching the show yet, but Jericho telling him that he is really going to like it and that it’s a great chance for them to go out and promote AEW to a different set of fans.

This is what Tony Khan said:

“They’re both friends of mine, and I feel like it’s probably going to be a very good show.” “I haven’t watched it yet, but Chris told me I’m really going to like it, and it’s a great chance for us to go out and promote AEW to a different set of fans. I was all for it, and definitely Steve being the host had a lot to do with that.”

Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions podcast featuring top AEW Star Chris Jericho is going to premiere on Sunday, April 11th immediately after day two of WrestleMania 37 on Peacock and the WWE Network worldwide.
