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. It seems he plans on dropping truth bombs about Tony Khan.
Eric Bischoff recently criticized Tony Khan for taking multiple shots at WWE over the past couple of weeks. Bischoff told Tony Khan to stay quiet and focus on his own product.
This prompted a response from the AEW President himself as Tony Khan fired back at Eric Bischoff for telling him to be quiet. On top of that, Tony Khan also accused Eric Bischoff of trying to stir up controversy with his remarks.
While speaking on his 83 Weeks Podcast, Eric Bischoff talked about his current relationship and beef with AEW President Tony Khan. Bischoff admitted that he took it personally when Kha compare himself to Ted Turner. Bischoff also made it clear he will move on if the two don’t reconcile.
“All I’m suggesting is, rather than claiming you’re competing against, and somehow you’re competing favorably because you’re comparing a percentage of your demos on your Wednesday night show to a percentage of the demos on Monday Night RAW, notice they don’t talk about SmackDown too much. But on Monday Night RAW, when they go against Monday Night Football, which probably has the highest concentration of male 18-49 year old than just about anything else on TV in any given week, is a false equivalency. It just isn’t real. It’s data gymnastics. I hope Tony and I can maintain our relationship. If we do, I’m grateful for that, if we don’t, that’s life. I have no real skin in the game. I’m just trying to clarify my position. I did take personal umbrage to the fact that Tony would compare himself the way he did to Ted Turner. I just think it was just a dumb move.”
We will have to wait and see if Eric Bischoff and Tony Khan will be able to sort out their differences or not. Regardless, Eric Bischoff will be more than happy to move on from the looks of it.
