Eric Bischoff is hailed as one of the best minds in the history of the pro wrestling business. He is well aware of the changing landscape of pro wrestling as well. Bischoff also believes Tony Khan is thin-skinned.
Eric Bischoff previously criticized Tony Khan for taking multiple shots at WWE last year. Bischoff told Tony Khan to stay quiet and focus on his own product. Things only got worse from there.
This led to a response from the AEW President himself as Tony Khan fired back at Eric Bischoff for telling him to be quiet. In fact, Khan also accused Eric Bischoff of trying to stir up controversy with his remarks.
While speaking on his new Strictly Business podcast on AdFreeShows.com, Eric Bischoff stated that Tony Khan is a little thin-skinned.
“I’m a fan of AEW. I’m excited about AEW. I want them to succeed. I see a lot of great things. I said that long before our little dust up. You know, Conrad [and I] we talk about Dynamite on 83 Weeks podcast and I would point out the things I enjoy about AEW more than the WWF. But at the same time, if I’m asked a question, I’m gonna be honest in my critique of that, but it’s not meant to be a shot. It just gets interpreted as that and I think Tony’s a little thin-skinned and he took it a little hard.”
Eric Bischoff even accused Tony Khan of escalating tensions between them. It is unlikely the two will reconcile anytime soon by the looks of it.
