• People In WWE Not Happy About Vince McMahon Hiring Eric Bischoff
Former WCW President Eric Bischoff will now be running SmackDown and this news didn’t sit well with some people in WWE.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, many of the former TNA wrestlers that are now in WWE and many guys in WWE itself can’t believe that Vince McMahon hired Bischoff even after Bischoff’s run in TNA not working out that well:
“You know there’s a lot of people who were in TNA that are in WWE now — to say that they’re baffled is the understatement of the year. I mean they’re just like rolling their eyes, I mean none of them had a clue either. I mean they can’t even believe it.
They’re like, ‘How can someone be so out of touch’ and the thing was and I’ve heard this from a lot of people: ‘Vince really doesn’t know anything about wrestling outside of WWE — AT ALL!’ I mean that’s kinda the conclusion and I’m not just talking about ex-TNA guys in that company.
I mean that’s been the consensus of people in and around that company across the board. ‘Wow, we know he doesn’t follow wrestling and he doesn’t watch wrestling, but he doesn’t know anything about wrestling anymore outside of his walls’.”
