• Eric Bischoff Reveals What He Wants WWE To Book
On a recent episode of his weekly ’83 Weeks’ podcast, Old School WCW Legend Eric Bischoff talked about the current state of the professional wrestling business and said that WWE never has any long term storylines locked in anymore.
Bischoff wants WWE to book storylines that last 3 to 6 months. Here’s what the 2021 WWE Hall of Famer said:
“I’ll be honest, I’m not sure that anybody really has, at this point in time, a 3 or 6 month story locked in.
I know when I was in WWE last, 2 or 3 years ago, that was definitely not the case, it was more week-to-week no matter what anybody said. I don’t know what it’s like in AEW because I’m not there, I’m not doing it but as recently as 24 months ago I was in the thick of it in WWE. There were no 3 and 6 months storylines locked in, I can assure you of that. Maybe that’s changed, hopefully it has and I think you need to have a good plan, a 3 month plan, a 6 month plan, if you can have a year – great.
But you also have to be flexible enough and spend enough time reading the audience, not the ratings, not the quarter hours. That doesn’t tell you sh*t, that tells you what history is, that doesn’t tell you what the audience is thinking or feeling and there’s only one way to know that and that is to be out there with the audience.
I hope that there are 3 and 6 month plans out there and if there are, hopefully people are paying attention to the crowd reaction as well.”
