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.
WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg is a legend in the pro wrestling business, especially making a name for himself during WCW. Goldberg previously admitted that he regretted not appreciating pro wrestling in the past. He was also unable to defeat Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship at WWE SummerSlam back in August.
It also saw Lashley attacking Goldberg’s son, Gage, after defeating Goldberg in the match. Since then Goldberg has used the words “kill” and “murder” in promos ahead of their match at WWE Crown Jewel, especially on a recent episode of Monday Night RAW.
While speaking on the 83 Weeks Podcast, Eric Bischoff criticized WWE for making Goldberg look like a 16-year-old after Goldberg said he’d kill Bobby Lashley in a recent promo.
“The minute that happens, you’ve lost the audience. I don’t know how to say this without saying it so I’ll take whatever s**t I take, but they know you’re not going to deliver. It makes no sense, it’s not artistic, it’s not creative, you’re not building anticipation, you’re not creating a stake, you’re not giving us a unique insight into your personality. You’re just saying something a 15-year-old or 16-year-old would say to somebody else as they’re getting their a** kicked in a school yard somewhere.”
We will have to wait and see who will come out on top in the match between Goldberg and Bobby Lashley at WWE Crown Jewel on October 21st.
