Ross welcomes Eric Bischoff to the show.
Bischoff informs that he will be doing a live show with Conrad Thompson and Tony Schiavone soon and he’s really looking forward to that.
Bischoff thinks Bruce Prichard returning to WWE in a creative role is a great thing for WWE. There will certainly be chemistry with Vince McMahon from their time working together in years prior, and he thinks this will help the company overall.
Ross says that working for WWE was great for him. He got stock options with the company and that “made him whole”. Bischoff says that he had stock options in Turner Broadcasting as well and became a Millionaire after the AOL merger through those stocks. Ross notes that it’s pretty cool that two non-wrestlers could make such a good living, and still find a way to be working at their age.
Bischoff thinks it’s only a matter of time before the wrestling business moves entirely to streaming services. He notes that the attitude era saw the most people watching the business on television, but he thinks the business is bigger as a whole today.
That sums up today’s episode of The Jim Ross Report. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya next week for another recap!
