Tony Schiavone on Chris Jericho's new role

In an interview with, Tony Schiavone talked about the role that Chris Jericho will play. His experience and quality have always been of great importance to the company. “He’s going to be, he’s just kind of a leader of the locker room.

That’s basically all that I know about it. When we have locker room meetings, he kind of runs things. There’s a number of athletes that he’s kind of in charge of their creative, and other than that, he’s just a guy that has a lot of clout, and because he has a lot of clout, when he says something, the wrestlers take it to heart.

I don’t know if he really has an official title like we do, but I just know that that’s kind of what he’s doing. Call It the team captain for lack of a better word”. - he said, as quoted by

Tony Schiavone on Tony Khan

Tony Schiavone has responded to rumors that he is Tony Khan's right-hand man.

“I did a search on the internet and it came up that Tony Schiavone was now number two and Tony Khan’s right hand man and I thought (he laughs), okay, as long as the wrestlers believe that, what hell, because that’s furthest from the truth.

Tony Khan does not have a number two. He’s his own number two”. Tony Schiavone talked about Saraya and her AEW debut in the "What Happened When" podcast. “I went backstage where we had her secluded and I talked with her for a little bit.

She was so genuinely excited about being with us and that was great. I mean, you could tell when she was talking about being here. She wasn’t nervous. She was just talking about how excited she was about being with us and she thought this was the place to be and it made me feel good about our company.

There’s a lot of things that have been going on since All Out that makes me feel very good about our company. Now, obviously, on a business side when you have the consistent ratings that we’ve had for the last, what, four or five weeks now and you get a million dollar gate. There’s a lot of positive things going on”.
