• Eric Bischoff’s Lack Of WWE Knowledge Is A Running Joke Backstage
During a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussing WWE’s upcoming Draft and noted that SmackDown Executive Director Eric Bischoff’s lack of WWE knowledge is a running joke backstage.
Below is what Meltzer said:
“That’s the plan right now, yeah is to do that with the draft so they can re-shuffle the rosters. Paul Heyman can get a few of the guys he wants — Bischoff, if he knows who the people are on the roster maybe he figure out who he wants. It’s been one of the running jokes that Bischoff doesn’t even know who the talent is yet, but there you go.”
