• Eric Bischoff Has No Idea Why Ric Flair Thinks He’s An “Arrogant Prick”
On a recent episode of his To Be The Man podcast, Ric Flair said the following about Eric Bischoff:
“I’m pissed off at Eric. Everybody wants to think there was animosity with me and Hulk. Hulk didn’t sign my checks, Eric did. Eric f**ked me every time he turned around.
When he sees my documentary, he is still a prick in it. He’s still a prick. He’s an arrogant prick.”
On Afterbuzz TV, Bischoff spoke about Flair’s comments about him and stated that he has no idea why The Nature Boy has any beef with him.
Here’s what Bischoff said:
“I have no idea. I saw it online and I’m thinking, wait a minute. It’s quite possible I said something somewhere along the way that I meant to be funny or whatever, and maybe somebody took it wrong, I don’t know.”
Eric Bischoff started as an announcer and interviewer for Verne Gagne’s American Wrestling Association (AWA) from 1986 until 1991, before he joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in ’91 to do the same, but eventually became the Senior Vice President, who was in charge of WCW during the famous Monday Night Wars of the 90s.
After WCW was sold to Vince McMahon, Eric was brought to WWE as the General Manager of the Monday Night RAW brand, a position he held from July 2002 to December 2005.
Some of the younger fans will also remember him as an on-screen character for Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) between 2010 and 2012.
