Originally published at Chris Jericho to be interviewed by Steve Austin on Broken Skull Sessions
The next episode of Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions is set to feature AEW performer Chris Jericho as the guest streaming over WrestleMania Weekend.
The news of Austin’s next guest was teased with a countdown clock over the past 24 hours with the familiar sound effect used for Jericho’s initial countdown clock and entrance video.
It’s a stark contrast to the usual WWE policy of not acknowledging its competition but given the importance of the launch on Peacock, it’s a very savvy move to maximize interest for WWE’s biggest weekend of the year.

The episode will stream on Sunday, April 11th, the same day as Night 2 of WrestleMania 37 from Raymond James Stadium.
Jericho last wrestled for WWE in 2018 at The Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia while also competing for New Japan Pro Wrestling during the time. Jericho signed with the upstart AEW promotion in January 2019 and became the group’s first champion in August of that year.
He first entered WWE in August 1999 for his first run that lasted through August 2005 when he took a two-year hiatus, returning in November 2007 and had his most successful period feuding with Shawn Michaels and becoming the top heel in the company.
