• WWE Hall Of Famer Wants AEW To Add Goofy Legends As Managers
On a recent episode of his weekly ’83 Weeks’ podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff spoke about Tony Khan using Old School Legends like Arn Anderson, Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts & Tully Blanchard as managers in All Elite Wrestling.
Eric feels like there are some non-badass managers missing in AEW, like what Jimmy Hart & Jim Cornette were portraying back in the day.
Here’s what the 2021 WWE Hall of Famer said:
“Arn, Tully, Jake, these are serious shoot a$$-kicking motherf**kers. There’s no Jimmy Hart’s in that conversation, there’s no balance. Yes AEW is doing a great job in terms of integrating some of the legends, I being one of them occasionally getting to show up and I love that.
Balancing the serious, intense with the high-flying, super athletic ridiculous skill sets but still have some of that goofy sh*t mixed in so that the whole audience is satisfied. Not just the portion of the audience that identifies with one specific era or style of wrestling.”
