Bischoff is joined on today’s show by his co-host Nick Hausman.

A listener calls into the show and asks Bischoff where the line is in terms of what is too controversial for the wrestling business. Bischoff says that he always drew the line at anything involving race or religion. He admits that while you’re caught up in a ratings war it’s very easy to do anything imaginable to create controversy, but we must always remember that there is a line we must not cross.

Another listener asks Bischoff what he thinks about GFW’s current product, and if he thinks the company can ever turn the corner. He says that he doesn’t watch GFW, so he doesn’t have an opinion on the current product. In terms of if they can turn the corner, Bischoff says it’s hard to know unless you’re involved in the company and you understand what their goals are moving forward.

He points out that GFW are in a tough spot right now because their only revenue source is through their international television licensing. Bischoff says if they lose their deal with PopTV and therefore their presence on U.S. television, their demand overseas drops dramatically and that could become very problematic.
