Eric Bischoff recently appeared on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast where he discussed numerous topics related to the current wrestling scene among other things. Bischoff also revealed his thoughts on WWE bringing back popular WCW pay-per-views namely, Starrcade and War Games.
Here’s what the former head honcho of WCW had to say about the subject:
“Everything changes with time and WWE owns that intellectual property; as we see on the WWE Network that they are monetizing it on the WWE Network and exposing that content, which quite honestly, there are wrestling fans now that had never heard of WCW, or Starrcade, or War Games. They were too young or weren’t wrestling fans at the time; so there are a whole new generation of fans that are becoming familiar with sports entertainment, at least WCW’s role in it that hadn’t heard of it before, so it only makes sense to expand the ability to monetize it as many ways as possible. I mean, I think it’s great and happy to see it. War Games and Starrcade was Dusty Rhodes, not Eric Bischoff or Ted Turner, but Dusty Rhodes; so new fans to see it and learn about it, and understand that legacy, I think it’s a wonderful thing.”
