• CM Punk Jokes About Eric Bischoff’s WWE Release, Bischoff’s First Post-WWE Appearance Revealed
As we all know by now, former WCW President Eric Bischoff is no longer the SmackDown Executive Director and has been released by WWE.
According to Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer, one of the reasons Bischoff got released from WWE is that he wasn’t putting any effort in his role backstage:
“I heard that he just didn’t know anybody. He didn’t know any of the talent. He didn’t go out of his way to learn about anything. He would leave and nobody could get ahold of him. I heard zero, zero good things about Eric Bischoff when he was doing whatever he was doing, I don’t even know what he was doing.
He was doing some stuff and honest to god when I asked I don’t even know what he was doing, but I know he was doing enough that nobody liked working under him.
I heard of people that wanted to quit who were working under him.”
Former WWE wrestler CM Punk, who was fired from WWE on his wedding day after he walked out, tweeted the following regarding this:
Wedding day or nah?
