Eric Bischoff is a veteran in the pro wrestling business and is undoubtedly one of the greatest minds to have ever worked in it. He is well aware of the changing landscape of pro wrestling as well. He has also worked with some of the most well-known pro wrestlers in the industry.

A&E recently released a documentary based on the life of WWE Hall Of Famer Randy Savage and it was not received well whatsoever. So much so, that even WWE Hall Of Famer Sean Waltman criticized it.

Now it seems Eric Bischoff has given his opinion regarding the documentary as well. While speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, Bischoff talked about the Randy Savage documentary, stating that he was embarrassed to be a part of it.

“I’m embarrassed that I was a part of that [the Macho Man A&E documentary] as well. Just so people understand and know both Mrs. B and I shot those segments while I was still working with WWE and both of us still living in Stamford a year and a half ago. I thought because I’ve been involved with so many WWE projects, and I hope to continue to be involved, maybe or maybe not because I’m pretty vocal about my opinions sometimes. I like to think my criticism is constructive, and I don’t like to pick on individuals, but had I known what this biography was going to be, neither my wife or I would have participated. Had I known they were going to put Bubba the f***ing Love Sponge in this thing, I would have said thank you, but no thank you.”

Savage and Bischoff have history as Bischoff was the one to bring Savage to WCW from WWE in 1994. The aforementioned documentary has been slammed for its portrayal of Randy Savage and the use of people who Savage didn’t have the best relationships with around the time of his demise, especially Bubba The Love Sponge.
