Tony Schiavone talked about the importance of Chris Jericho and his new function and role. Schiavone revealed in an interview for the Add Free Show that Jericho will be the leader of the locker room. “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 pwmania.com
Tony Schiavone: Tony Schiavone was..
Tony Khan and Schiavone have a great relationship and are very important to each other.
“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”. He did not forget to mention Saraya in the "What Happened When" podcast. Saraya is a great person and a great friend who is ready to help everyone.
Her importance is great. “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”.
