• “I’ve seen some horrible, horrible sh*t” – WWE Hall Of Famer On AEW Promos
During a recent episode of the Strictly Business podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff talked about promos in the current era of Professional Wrestling.
Some fans think promos in AEW are automatically better than promos in WWE because there are no scripts given to wrestlers in All Elite Wrestling.
However, Bischoff disagrees. Here’s what the WWE Hall Of Famer said:
“I f**king cannot stand watching 80% of the interviews that I’m forced to sit through if I want to sit and watch the show. AEW is no different.
In fact, I’ve seen some horrible, horrible sh*t on AEW. So the idea that they have the freedom and the talents involved like that’s somehow gonna guarantee or ensure quality, well, that sh*t went out the window a long time ago because I’ve seen promos on AEW that I would never allow on a television show, ever.
I haven’t seen a good promo in AEW that creates emotion or advances a story. It’s just words. There’s no connection to the character or the audience, and just a waste of time.
So God, please, give me somebody that’s figured out a way to shoot promos that matter or just don’t shoot ones that don’t. I’ll take that.”
