Y2J Announces New Podcast with Major First Guest
In a new interview conducted for Zap2It.com, Chris Jericho revealed that he will be launching a new podcast, and his first guest will be WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin. Jericho had the following to say regarding the podcast in the interview:
"I just signed on to do a podcast with Podcast One. They do Steve Austin's, Adam Carolla's, Seth Rogen's. There's always things like that popping up and I think a lot of the time wrestling fans want you to be tied to wrestling for the rest of your life and unfortunately it doesn't really work that way. For me, I've never though of myself as just a wrestler, but as an entertainer. Anything that falls under the umbrella, I'm going to do it.
It's just me. I did the 'Nerdist' last year and we did an hour of talking about bad sitcom spinoffs. 'Golden Palace,' 'After M.A.S.H.' Then I did Adam Carolla's and it was the same thing, just talking about whatever. I thought, "F—, I could do this. So it's just going to be me. I'll get a guest on whenever I feel like it and just talk about whatever's going on. It'll be fun for me to do because it's something I've always wanted to do and now I have the avenue for it."
