CM Punk Has An Interesting Take On AEW Star Chris Jericho's Upcoming WWE "Return"

We recently learned that All Elite Wrestling's Chris Jericho will be a guest on WWE Network/Peacock show Broken Skull Sessions, and former WWE Superstar CM Punk has now weighed in with his unique take...

Despite being signed with All Elite Wrestling, Chris Jericho will make his WWE return this week on the April 11th edition of Stone Cold Steve Austin's WWE Network/Peacock show, Broken Skull Sessions. An AEW star appearing on WWE programming is a legit shocker, especially as the company usually does everything within its power to avoid mentioning anyone associated with the rival promotion.

Talking to TMZ, former WWE Superstar CM Punk weighed in with his thoughts on the interview.

"I think 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," the former WWE Champion said. "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."

Asked for his take on why Vince McMahon and Tony Khan would be on board with this crossover, Punk explained that he thinks it boils down to the WWE Chairman wanting to make it clear that he's not swearing the competition from AEW. "Honestly, my knee-jerk reaction and opinion is that I think it shows Vince McMahon isn’t afraid of AEW at all," the Best in the World explained.

"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. It’s a new age and both companies need all the eyeballs they can get at the moment, so kudos to everybody involved."
