Action Andretti was a recent guest on Chris Jericho’s “Talk Is Jericho” podcast to discuss a variety of topics, including his signing with AEW and how a promo test helped to make it happen.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On being tested by AEW’s coaches and Jericho on his promo skills: “As soon as I got done wrestling the match, I talked to QT [Marshall] a little bit, but then it was kind of just Sonjay [Dutt] pulling me to the side like ‘Let’s go outside real quick.’ He had me cut a promo on the match, and then I cut a couple other promos with different scenarios, then like another two or three. And then you [Jericho] came around from the corner, and then you had me cut a couple of promos with different scenarios. The one you said you loved so much was the one I did on Sammy Guevara. You told me to cut the one on Sammy Guevara, and in that moment, it was a lot for me too, seeing all the cameras, all the lights out there. The adrenaline’s still going after the match. So it was definitely a lot for me at the time, because I wasn’t used to that.”
Chris Jericho on immediately talking to Tony Khan about Andretti: “I went and told Tony, I said ‘This guy did a great promo. We should sign him. But if you do, don’t bring him back,’ because I had this idea [for the match with Jericho on Dynamite].”
