While speaking to The New York Post, Eric Bischoff discussed WWE’s new deal with FOX and explained why it’s bad for professional wrestling.
“Anybody who comes along and wants to sell a wrestling show, guess who you are not gonna sell it to? You are not going to sell it to FOX and any of its affiliates and, oh by the way, you are not going to sell it to NBC Universal or any of its affiliates. So the world in terms of one’s ability to sell a traditional [wrestling] television show to a traditional television or broadcast partner has just collapsed.”
As previously noted, SmackDown is expected to move to Fox next year in October. They are being offered a huge money deal and several changes are expected to be made once the show moves.
