Bischoff is joined on today’s show by his co-host Nick Hausman.
Bischoff starts today’s show by saying that he’s not a fan of the idea of having a Fatal 4-way match for the Universal Title at SummerSlam. He says that he’s not a fan of multi-person matches in general, because more often than not they occur from a lack of compelling storylines. He’d prefer that WWE focus on each individual storyline, to give fans one guy to cheer for and one guy to hate.
There’s no doubt in his mind that the match itself is going to be great because all four of those guys are great performers, but apart from the actual match, does anyone really care about who wins and who loses?
Hausman mentions that with SummerSlam being a dual brand PPV, there mightn’t have been enough time for two individual singles matches so WWE threw all four of these guys into the one match. Bischoff says that this is a huge issue, because your storylines should never take a back seat to time constraints.
Bischoff goes on to say that he doesn’t like the idea of both brands being on the same show to begin with, and if a lack of time results in convoluted storylines and matches that nobody will remember, that’s something that WWE needs to address moving forward.
