AEW Superstar Chris Jericho is the latest guest on Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Broken Skull podcast. In the latest sneak peek trailer, Jericho revealed some of his favorite moments and wrestlers.
In the clip, we see Austin and Jericho playing rapid-fire. They made a “list of Jericho” where Austin gave the “Le Champion” a category and the latter had to give his top one or two answers.
The first of the categories was “best talkers,” for which Jericho named ‘The Rock’ and the ‘Texas Rattle Snake.’ For the best opponent, Jericho named Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels and former Tag Team partner Kevin Owens.
However, the ‘controversial’ part came when Jericho named his favorite tag team partners. They were Big Show and Sammy Guevara, both of whom belong to AEW.
He also named Dean Malenko and Eddie Guerrero and named Rey Mysterio as the top high flyer. As some future Hall of Famers, Jericho named Owens, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns. To this Austin added, “I’ll throw you in the mix.”
Chris Jericho reveals his favorite WrestleMania moment
Jericho also recalled his favorite WrestleMania moment from his plethora of appearances. Without a doubt, Jericho named his WrestleMania 19 bout with Shawn Michaels as his favorite. He also said that was the one “where we stole the show.”
WWE considers the match and the rivalry to be one of the greatest in modern times. However, that rivalry started out of the blue following a Highlight Reel episode.
“It was a one-shot thing where I did a Highlight Reel and I was calling him old, which is funny because he was 37 and I was 32. I was just kind of demeaning Shawn on the Highlight Reel, he super kicked me in the face, and that was supposed to be the end of it,” Jericho recalled in an Inside the Ropes interview.
“We walked to the back and I remember Vince sitting there, smiling. Vince looks at Shawn and Shawn goes It’s money and Vince said, You’re f***ing right it’s money. That was where that whole angle started,” he added.
As of now, Jericho is a full-time AEW performer and mentor. Recently he announced the first-ever “blood and gore” match for AEW. It’ll take place between his Inner Circle and MJF’s Pinnacle on May 5.
