In an interview with Inside the Ropes, Jericho explained why he was comfortable with the podcast. He compared it to looking online after watching the recent Avengers movie. 

"It's a great f-cking performance, a great match, one of the best you could ever see with an amazing storyline. But, I want to know more about it.  This is not the sixties, seventies, or eighties. We are now a huge form of entertainment that's a part of the pop culture fabric where people want to know more," said Jericho. 

While Jericho admits he and Omega let go of some secrets in the podcast, Jericho said they were "smart" not to give away everything.
