With a podcast and a talk show on the USA Network, Stone Cold Steve Austin does a lot of interviews these days. He’ll soon do even more on WWE Network, with a new show called, ‘Stone Cold Steve Austin: The Broken Skull Sessions.’ The first episode will be with The Undertaker.
WrestleVotes broke this news yesterday and Variety published the official WWE scoop today. ‘The Broken Skull Sessions’ will be a monthly interview series on the Network, “with the first episode set to air on Nov. 24 at approximately 10:30 p.m. ET after the annual WWE pay-per-view Survivor Series.” If the episodes air exactly one month apart, that means the second one should air on Christmas Eve.
The last program Austin hosted on the WWE Network as the live ‘Stone Cold Podcast‘ back in 2016, which produced some memorable interviews with people like Paige, Dean Ambrose, and Paul Heyman. Austin told Variety that ‘The Broken Skull Sessions’ will have a different feel. Instead, “I think this is going to be a little more relaxed and laid back.”
In the social media age, fans are much more likely to see The Undertaker out of character than they have in the past, but he still very rarely does shoot interviews, so his interview with Austin is sure to contain some revelations and maybe make some people feel like part of their childhood has died. Back when he was going to appear at Starrcast, before he re-signed with WWE for a long time, it looked like he was going to have a podcast with Conrad Thompson, so he’s clearly more comfortable with putting kayfabe aside these days, so there might be many more to come.
