• “I would not want to be anywhere near AEW” – WWE Hall Of Famer
During a special ‘Ask Me Anything’ episode of his weekly ’83 Weeks’ podcast, WCW Legend Eric Bischoff was asked if he would consider returning to pro wrestling as a character on television in WWE or AEW.
Here’s what the 2021 Hall of Famer had to say :
“If there was some kind of fun thing that I could do with WWE and Bruce Prichard, sure, that would be fun.
I’d have to be able to do it from my home, which makes it impossible and not realistic, and I would not want to be anywhere near AEW in any way shape or form.”
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, but he also had a few brief cameo appearances for All Elite Wrestling in 2020 & 2021.
