Bischoff on Wrestling Recap – Dolph Ziggler’s Time Off, Running WCW in 2000, Is Kayfabe Dead? More!
Bischoff is joined on today’s show by his co-host Nick Hausman.
Bischoff says he was very saddened to hear about Ric Flair’s hospitalization over the weekend. He saw Flair just a few months ago, and Flair appeared to be in very good health. It’s hard for Bischoff to imagine Flair in a compromised state because he’s always been so full of life, and every time he enters a room he commands everyone’s attention.
Hausman points out that Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Centre is promoting Brock Lesnar for RAW after SummerSlam, where they have him listed as Universal Champion and many people are considering this a spoiler. Hausman asks Bischoff if he ever had to deal with a situation like that while he was running WCW.
Bischoff says that this sort of thing happened regularly and it was very frustrating. He does point out that this doesn’t necessarily mean that Lesnar is leaving SummerSlam as Universal Champion, and people may simply be overthinking this information.
