WWE.COM: Your new podcast, “Talk is Jericho,” is already taking off. How did that come about?

JERICHO: My good friend Steve Austin has a podcast.  He’s one of the few guys I still talk to on a regular basis from my time in WWE. He called me and asked me to do his podcast. He mentioned that the people that he worked for at PodcastOne were interested in me doing one. I’ve been looking for a way to break into that world. It was very much an act of happenstance that Steve called me and said they were looking for me.

WWE.COM: How are you enjoying it?

JERICHO: It’s great because I can talk about music, I can talk about wrestling, I can talk about horror movies, TV shows, whatever I want. You never know how people are going to respond to it.

My first two shows, Steve Austin was my guest [and] it was a huge boost. I think the diversity I have is going to make it very entertaining. My competition is Adam Carolla and Chris Hardwick, those are the guys I’m going up against. There’ll be music guests, wrestling guests and everybody in between. I’m real excited about it. It’s something I’ve been looking forward to doing for a long time.  It’s right up my alley for sure.

WWE.COM: WrestleMania season’s approaching. The WWE Universe wants to know — are you getting the itch to get back in the ring?

JERICHO: I don’t really have the itch. I’m super busy with all the stuff I’m doing, between Fozzy tours, we’re getting ready to record a new record, the podcast, “But I’m Chris Jericho,” which is another big hit. I’m also finishing my third book. There’s a lot of stuff going on. Having said that, I’d be open to it, but I haven’t had any conversations or anything like that. It’s WrestleMania. Anybody that’s been in WWE wants to be involved. If I’m there, it’ll be awesome and I’ll do everything I can to have the best match on the show. If I’m not, I’ll have a great time watching it, I’m sure.
