WWE Hall Of Famer Doesn’t Want To Be Anywhere Near AEW

On a recent episode of his weekly ’83 Weeks’ podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff spoke about the current state of Tony Khan’s AEW.

Eric had a few brief appearances on All Elite Wrestling TV over the past couple of years, but stated again – like he did on multiple occasions before – that he does not want to return.

Here’s what Bischoff had to say:

“I’ve been talking you through it for the last year and a half. And every time I do, it’s like ‘Oh, he’s the old man screaming at the clouds. He’s just f****** jealous because Tony won’t hire him’.

First of all, I wouldn’t take a job right now, well, I won’t say for any amount of money because, look, we all know I’m a wh*re. But realistically, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near that clown car. And the reason for that is because there is a failure to recognize what’s wrong.

It’s simple, it’s story, and it’s legitimate story. Not what a wrestling fan thinks is a story, or unfortunately what a lot of the talent in the ring referred to as a story. Just because you’ve wrestled in the past and have quote-unquote history does not mean you have a story.

A story is a well-defined arc with plot points that happen along the way in a very precise manner so that they peak at certain points within that arc, and they dovetail into other stories within the context of wrestling that are going on. That’s what WWE is doing. The schematic is right in front of you.

It’s the inability to recognize it that is what’s causing this issue. I’ve been saying it for a year and a half. When I first started saying it is, I think it was in November, October or November, almost two years ago now.”

Eric Bischoff used to work for Verne Gagne’s American Wrestling Association (1986-1991), Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (1991-2000), WWE (2002-2005) and Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (2010-2013).
