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.
One of the biggest topics of discussion in the pro wrestling world right now is about the debut of CM Punk in AEW, which only seems to have gained more steam with each passing day.
While speaking on his podcast, 83 Weeks, Eric Bischoff talked about CM Punk making his way to AEW. Bischoff stated that AEW shouldn’t hot shot CM Punk into the main event scene right away and develop him slowly, building anticipation.
“I wouldn’t put him in a hot angle right away. I wouldn’t hot shot it, I would want to continue to build on the successful anticipation element that AEW has built upon. I wouldn’t drag it out for 6 months but I like the idea of Punk, especially because he can talk, coming in on commentary, stirring the s–t and building upon that for a couple of weeks and then eventually have a spontaneous combustible moment and then leads to a wrestling storyline. That’s probably what I would do,”
We will have to wait and see how the debut of CM Punk will turn out to be and whether he will be booked properly or not.
