Possible Reason for Austin Not Doing Live Podcast Special on WWE Network



According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, one of the possible reasons for Chris Jericho replacing Stone Cold for this month’s live podcast special on the WWE Network is due to Vince McMahon having issues with Austin’s interview with Triple H.

“*Live with Chris Jericho – This will be a once a month, one-hour show where Jericho interviews WWE talent after Raw. The format is expected to be similar to the Steve Austin interviews with Vince McMahon and HHH that garnered a lot of attention. The first show will air on 4/6, with John Cena as guest. It’s notable that it’s Jericho and not Austin doing the show. One person close to the situation said that there was a falling out of sorts between McMahon and Austin and that Vince was not happy with Austin’s interview with HHH. He then wanted a change in hosts, and he picked Jericho. I’m not sure exactly what, but the item that seemed to cause the most controversy after the fact was Austin asking about Chyna in the Hall of Fame, and the fallout of Chyna resurfacing, and talking about HHH and the physical abuse allegation.”
