Chris Jericho will be on the Broken Skull Sessions with Steve Austin on the WWE Network on April 11th. The news certainly broke the internet with pro wrestling fans talking about it! Also, Andrade seems to have signed with a new promotion since he was released from WWE. What promotion is he going to?

Chris Jericho of All Elite Wrestling will be sitting down with Steve Austin on the WWE Network, but fans are wondering what will be talked about? Will the Wednesday Night War be brought up? Will AEW be talked about? Will Jericho talk about why he left WWE for New Japan and All Elite Wrestling? Is this the start of an AEW & WWE Partnership or just a simple one-off? Does Vince McMahon know what's going on?

Andrade was released from his WWE contract the day after WWE Fastlane and many have speculated where he would go next. He seems to have signed a new contract when he tweeted "New Beginnings" and an image of him with a pen and paper ready to sign a deal. Is he going to Impact? Maybe New Japan? Perhaps he is going to Ring of Honor.

Kenny Omega as AEW Champion vs Roman Reigns as WWE Universal Champion. Who has the better promo? Who has the better matches? Who is booked better? In 2021, Who has the better champion? All Elite Wrestling or WWE?

Kenny Omega brought back The Cleaner when he beat Jon Moxley to become AEW World Champion and now is on a quest to become a belt collector showing up on Impact Wrestling and already being the AAA Mega Champion. He has joined with Don Callis and the character and his promos have gotten better since. His matches with Rey Fenix, Matt Sydal and Jon Moxley delivered as many wrestling fans assume they would from the Best Bout Machine.

Roman Reigns returned to WWE Smackdown in August 2020 to become the Universal Champion a week later at Payback. Since then, the Tribal Chief has been the Head of the Table of WWE and now well-liked among the IWC. His matches with Jey Uso, Kevin Owens and Drew McIntyre have the WWE Universe seeing that Vince McMahon has seen all along. He is the star of WWE.
