More than two decades after his unforgettable WWE debut, Chris Jericho still knows how to keep us guessing.
The former Undisputed WWE Champion, among the most decorated Superstars in sports-entertainment history, will return to WWE programming for the first time in nearly three years as a guest of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin on The Broken Skull Sessions. The episode premieres Sunday, April 11, and will stream exclusively on Peacock in the U.S. and on WWE Network everywhere else.
The announcement was broken today on WWE Network social media, with a video revealing Austin and Jericho together on the Broken Skull Sessions set.

Several WWE fans suspected such a surprise was in the works when a video showing a 24-hour countdown clock, reminiscent of the one that foreshadowed Y2J’s 1999 Raw debut but decked out with Austin’s signature skull symbol, was posted yesterday on WWE Network social accounts.
The post stirred speculation, setting off a wide range of theories about what it could all mean. More than a few eagle-eyed members of the WWE Universe observed that the video was posted on April 1, leading some to write it off as an April Fools’ Day ruse. Those doubts were put to rest 24 hours later with the second video showing Jericho on set with Austin.
What will The Ayatollah of Rock ’n’ Rolla have to say in his highly anticipated interview with The Texas Rattlesnake? Don’t miss out when Jericho joins Austin on a historic edition of The Broken Skull Sessions on Sunday, April 11, streaming exclusively on Peacock in the U.S. and on WWE Network everywhere else.
