Chris Jericho Discusses Podcast With Jon Moxley

Chris Jericho Discusses Podcast With Jon Moxley
Chris Jericho was interviewed by Uproxx to talk about the success his podcast episode with Jon Moxley did, if he was surprised by Moxley’s comments, and more. Check out the highlights here:

And speaking of the podcasting, this week your podcast episode with Jon Moxley you tweeted was your highest rated episode ever. Did you expect the interview to get so much traction?
I don’t know. I suspected it would do well because Moxley going to AEW was a big surprise. He had left WWE less than a month ago. But, I mean, I woke up this morning and saw that not only was it the highest rated Talk Is Jericho of all time, but it had got double the listens of the previous number one ranked show in less than 18 hours…. Everybody wants to hear it, everyone wants to know about it, and the podcast is very successful. So to be able to say that it doubled this rating, you know, within a day and a half, it has the potential to be one of the biggest podcasts ratings maybe ever…

So I don’t know why how sometimes this happens, but I’m definitely not going to complain about it. There’s a lot of people who want to hear what he has to say and some of the stuff he’s saying is a real revelation for wrestling fans because now they know how things work behind the scenes in the WWE and in the wrestling business. He was definitely no holds barred… He’s not the most talkative of guys, but at that point, he was because he had some things he really wanted to get off his chest…
Obviously, you know a lot more about what goes on in the wrestling business than most people listening, but did anything about his story surprise you at all, or did you kind of know all of it in advance?
I mean, not to me… Obviously, he has some personal experiences that are not exactly the same as mine, but the vibe and the tone… I guess the biggest surprise to me was how open he was because, as I mentioned earlier, he’s not the most talkative of guys, but he really had things he wanted to say.

I think one of the reasons why my podcast is so popular is that people come on the show, whether it be a wrestler or a musician or you’re a paranormal expert or whatever it be… to get a fair take and someone who’s just going to sit back and let people talk. If the show was ninety minutes long; I probably talked for five minutes of that time and left the other 85 minutes for him to say what he wanted to say, and he felt very, very comfortable to do so. So to me, it was one of the best Talk Is Jericho episodes I’ve ever had, but a lot of it had to do with the timing as far as why it’s so popular. As we all know, in show business, timing is everything…
So we know in AEW you’re going to have a match with Hangman Page. It looks like you might have a match with Moxley. Is there anyone [else] in the company you really want to wrestle in the future who you haven’t worked with yet?
With AEW you have a roster full of guys who are all up and coming or established and I’ve wrestled hardly any of them… I think I had one match with Cody maybe ten years ago in WWE on a Saturday morning show. I think the Young Bucks, MJF, Jungle Boy, Hangman Page you mentioned — There’s so many guys that I’d like to work with — and Pentagon and Fenix – and that’s the exciting thing is that now when you have the stars, you have this roster of everybody…

What Double or Nothing was was a real kind of coming out party for AEW because it showed… what this company is all about. There’s a lot of guys on that show that I’d enjoy working with, and the best part is there’s no rush. it’s just getting going. It’s just getting started… There’s two or three years of storylines already and we’ve only had one show, so I’m really excited about all the options…
