• Rumor Killer On Eric Bischoff’s Heat

WrestleTalk recently reported that there’s backstage heat on SmackDown Executive Director Eric Bischoff for the amount of time he has taken to get started with his job.

However, that’s not the case. According to Brad Shepard, there’s no heat on Bischoff:

“According to a high level source in WWE, there is no truth to WrestleTalk’s report that certain people are mad with Eric Bischoff taking forever to get started.”

As we noted before, Bischoff begins his role as the Executive Director of SmackDown this week.
