Leave a comment

Bischoff and Hausman discuss the September 29, 1997 edition of Monday Nitro.

Hausman informs that this show was sold out, and he asks Bischoff if sell outs were a regularity during this time. Bischoff informs that basically every Nitro was sold out during this era, regardless of the city. He adds that when he first came into the picture a $20,000-$30,000 gate was considered a great show, but as the attitude era picked up WCW officials began to get spoiled as gates of over $100,000 became standard.

Bischoff says that he really enjoyed the work of ‘Mr. Perfect’ Curt Henning during this time. When he first came into power in WCW he really had his eye set on Henning because he had been a fan of Henning’s work from the time he stepped foot in a WWE ring. It was a pleasure for Bischoff to have the opportunity to work with Henning.

He says that cutting promos was his favourite part of the week during this time. He always felt like he had a good idea of what it took to cut an effective promo and to get the audience in the palm of his hand. When he finally became an on-screen character and was able to start cutting his own promos he had a lot of fun putting some of those thoughts to work.
