Eric Bischoff led WCW through the Monday Night Wars and the nWo received a huge focus during that time. Some might say they got too much of the spotlight.

On a recent episode of 83 Weeks Eric Bischoff spoke about the nWo and all the attention he gave the faction. Even though some fans contribute the nWo’s take over with WCW’s downfall, Bischoff doesn’t regret the decisions he made.

“Look in retrospect, it’s easy to have 20/20 hindsight. NWO was so hot, we were trying to keep it fresh. We were trying to find ways to keep it fresh. We had played out the black and white, I think to the extent that we possibly could have, as long as we possibly could have.”

“I think it was time. In order to create story, we had to create dissension.”


“I’m comfortable with the decision we made even looking bad at it now.”

Eric Bischoff doesn’t seem to be one to change his mind about things, even in retrospect. Coincidentally, some fans contribute the downfall of the nWo to Eric Bischoff’s inclusion.

Now the nWo will be honored by an induction into the WWE Hall Of Fame. Eric Bischoff isn’t included in the four inductees, but we’ll have to wait and see if he gets an invitation.
