WWE Superstar Chris Jericho Is All Set To Launch A New Network On PodcastOne!
Jericholics, rejoice! If you're a big fan of Chris Jericho's "Talk Is Jericho" podcast, the popular WWE superstar guarantees you will find his latest venture with PodcastOne nothing short of entertaining.
The Jericho Network is slated to debut on Thursday, July 7, with the first new podcast dubbed, "Keeping It 100 with Konnan."
Currently with Lucha Underground, Charles Ashenoff, popularly known by his ring name, Konnan, has worked with nearly every wrestling promotion.
Jericho plans to tot up shows monthly with no more than 10 to 12 on the network. He believes this will not have any sort of effect on his podcast as his network will only be acting as the distribution point of the other shows, besides, he will not be directly involved in anything other than selecting the hosts and shows.
Jericholics can access the Jericho Network podcasts on iTunes, at PodcastOne.com, and PodcastOne app, ForTheWin reported.
The upcoming show, according to Jericho, will encompass an array of topics ranging from wrestling, paranormal to pop culture. The idea is to have interesting hosts who will do an interesting show via the Jericho Network.
The 45-year-old popular wrestler admitted that at his age, there will soon come a day when he would prefer not to take bumps anymore and when that time comes, ventures like this with PodcastOne will allow him to continue entertaining Jericholics as he has during his adult life.
Noting that Jericho's podcast are among the most successful on the PodcastOne network, Norm Pattiz , Founder and Executive Chairman of PodcastOne told AllAccess that they were looking for other ways to extend the business relationship with "Y2J" Chris Jericho.
Podcasting offers a solid opportunity for professional wrestlers like Christopher Keith Irvine a.k.a Chris Jericho to not only stay connected with the fans, but also have a backup plan for when the time comes for them to leave the wrestling ring.
Jericho has had an impressive run so far, and although he works only part of the time, his efforts in the ring are commendable - his most recent Asylum match with the "Lunatic Fringe" Dean Ambrose further established him as a hard working, charismatic, professional wrestler.
