• Eric Bischoff Gives His Views On AEW Dynamite
During a recent edition of 83 Weeks podcast, former WCW President and current SmackDown Executive Director Eric Bischoff was asked about his thoughts on AEW Dynamite.
Below are the highlights:
On his thoughts on AEW Dynamite:
“I did watch it. I actually watched it twice. I think the take away for me was, the biggest thing that I saw that I liked was the crowd. That crowd was lit in every conceivable way. You could really see that crowd, they were excited to be there and they were an active part of the show.
What I saw from AEW was a crowd that was intensely engaged, and from a production value standpoint, you could see it. The lighting made the audience a part of the show. That was the biggest positive I took from that show.
I’m not going to critique the in-ring action or anything like that, but when I walked out of the room the first thing on my mind was, ‘Wow, that crowd made that show.'”
On the Wednesday Night War between AEW & NXT:
“I think it’s going to be interesting, you know. I’m very interested to see where things will stand in 90 days. But I think it’s early.
I think it’s great for the industry, I think it’s re-energized the fan base, I think it’s re-energized the talent, and I think it’s re-energized the respective offices where commitments are made and decisions are made.
I think it’s a great thing. I think there’s nothing negative about it.”
