WWE and AEW have been competing against each other for over a year now. With it, they have developed their own distinct style of television programs. It seems Eric Bischoff is not a fan of how both companies produce a certain aspect of their television programming.
On the latest episode of his 83 Weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff criticized WWE and AEW, stating that they have one huge flaw.
Bischoff said that he does not like WWE and AEW advertising their storylines before fans get to see them on television. He called it ‘appointment television,’ stating that the companies are simply advertising matches in the end as there is no proper buildup or journey for the matches.
“That’s called appointment television. That’s why you’re live and when whether it’s WWE or AEW, there I go I said I wasn’t gonna name them. When I see them advertising something that really doesn’t have any story, there’s no buildup, there’s no journey involved, you’re just advertising a match. There’s not a story, the draw isn’t big enough on its own so what do we do? Oh, let’s just promote it. Let’s make sure the audience knows what we’re gonna do. Well, how about instead of that, how about creating a really good story that feels like it’s combusting spontaneously before your eyes in the moment?”
Easy E also added that WCW made great use of live television, highlighting how the nWo storyline made for great television.
