WWE made a lot of headlines when they hired Eric Bischoff as the Executive Director of SmackDown. Just under four months later, they made more headlines by firing Easy E.
While speaking to Fightful, Eric Bischoff explained that he was never hired by WWE to work on creative. He denied having any part in Roman Reigns’ mystery attack storyline. He was simply brought in to “manage the process.”
“I wasn’t hired necessarily to takeover creative. I was brought up more to manage the process. And that was clear to me in the beginning. None of the creative that you saw had anything to do with me, good or bad.”
Eric Bischoff is now off to his next adventure. He was quick to accept an appearance at Starrcast IV, but he also keeps close company with Conrad Thompson through his 83 Weeks podcast.
