CM Punk Weighs In On Chris Jericho’s Upcoming WWE Network Appearance
Chris Jericho’s appearance on an upcoming episode of WWE Network’s “Broken Skull Sessions” with Steve Austin has garnered a lot of attention, including former WWE Champion CM Punk.
In speaking with TMZ, CM Punk provided his thoughts on the appearance, stating he thinks the types of questions asked would not be as hard-hitting as some may want.
“It’s interesting, for sure. Obviously, I understand the buzz. Maybe I’ll give it a shot and watch it, but it feels like it’s going to be softball questions. I don’t if they’re going to ask Jericho all the tough questions and nor do I think that they possibly should. It’s an interesting situation and it’ll probably be a feel good interview where they talk about Jericho’s past at WWE. I’m sure they’ll mention AEW, but they won’t get into the hard questions that I think people are interested in,”
He believes Vince McMahon allowing Jericho to appear on the WWE Network program shows he isn’t afraid of All Elite Wrestling.
“Honestly, my knee-jerk reaction and opinion is that I think it shows Vince McMahon isn’t afraid of AEW at all. If he was, he wouldn’t allow that to happen. Anytime anybody is talking about you, it is good. There will be people that don’t know AEW exists who will watch it and say, ‘Cool, I didn’t know that. I just thought Jericho was retired.’ There is also something to be said about keeping your guys special and the only place you can see this superstar is on my television show, but it’s a new age and both companies need all the eyeballs they can get at the moment.”
Chris Jericho’s appearance on Broken Skull Sessions with Steve Austin will air on Sunday, April 11 on Peacock and WWE Network (International)
