• Eric Bischoff Says He’s Incredibly Impressed With Current WWE Product
During a recent appearance on the Pancakes and Powerslams Show, below is what former WCW President Eric Bischoff had to say about the current WWE product:
“I think in general, incredibly impressed. Now, that’s not to say that it necessarily suits my particular tastes 100 percent of the time, because that wouldn’t be true.
But, one of the things that I learned a long time ago, and I learned it directly from Ted Turner, by the way, one of the few things I remember him saying specifically to me outside of a couple other strategic business conversations, was that when you’re in the business of programming content, and in this particular case, Ted was talking about how the way he programmed his networks at Turner Broadcasting, is you have to be careful not to program for yourself. You have to program for the masses.
And as I think that relates to WWE, while I’m sure – I don’t know this to be a fact, but I would venture to bet – that not everything we see in WWE necessarily suits the taste of Vince McMahon or Stephanie McMahon or Triple H 100 percent of the time. Because they’re not programming for themselves, they’re programming for the masses.
And when you program for the masses and the broadest possible audience you can, sometimes you have to do things that don’t necessarily suit your own particular taste.”
