A listener writes into the show and asks Bischoff if he thinks the NWO would have been as successful without the heel turn and addition of Hulk Hogan. Bischoff says that the NWO was successful because of all the parts that came together at that time. There’s no doubt in his mind that Monday Nitro wouldn’t have been as successful as it was without NWO.
Another listener writes into the show, recalling ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper calling Bischoff a ‘piece of shi*’ on WCW programming. Bischoff informs that there was never any heat between him and Piper. He says that Piper was a wonderful guy and they got along great.
Regarding WWE’s decision to send a cease and desist letter to The Young Bucks, Bischoff says that maybe this is a way to advance a storyline. He hopes somebody in WWE is smart enough to think along those lines. If it’s not an angle, he thinks The Bucks are in a world of hurt because they simply don’t have the money to get into a legal battle with WWE.
That sums up this week’s episode of Bischoff on Wrestling. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya next week for another recap!
