Recently, WWE Hall Of Famer Eric Bischoff called CM Punk the biggest financial flop in the history of wrestling. This comment was met with a lot of backlash as well, and for good reason. Bischoff also called out Tony Khan for his nonsense comments.
After AEW Double Or Nothing, AEW President Tony Khan addressed what Eric Bischoff said about CM Punk. Khan blasted Bischoff for even saying something like that about Punk.
While speaking on the latest “83 Weeks” podcast, Eric Bischoff responded to what Tony Khan said. He called out Tony Khan, stating that his comments were pure nonsense.
“Coming out of the AEW Pay-Per-View, what everyone was talking about is Tony Khan at the press conference, addressing his situation with you. I guess I’d be remiss if I didn’t say Eric, what do you think?”
Bischoff responded, “I felt bad for Tony in a way. Then it’s like, okay, I can’t wait to fire back. I’m going to have so much fun with this. I was ready to go. I spent most of Monday morning just kind of in my mind laying out how I was going to just take a flamethrower to this. Then I said, ‘No, that’s what you normally do, Eric. Let’s not do what you normally do, which is just a visceral, in the moment, without a whole lot of thought response.
There will be a time, there will be a place where I will respond to this nonsense.’ I mean, what the hell? Friday night wars? What? Are you kidding me? Enough? I got a better idea. I’m here with you (Conrad Thompson) each and every week. You said you’re friends with Tony. If you got something to say Tony, and you want to defend yourself, and Punk, you got an issue with my responses when I’m asked a question, or when somebody from your organization decides to use their platform to take a swing, and then bitches and whines like a little puppy that peed on the carpet and knows it’s about to get smacked, I respond, and you have a problem with that? Here I am brother. Anytime you want to jump on and jump in, give the big man a call. You got his number. He’ll set it up and we’ll do it. So, not a hard man to find.”
It is evident that Tony Khan’s comments did not do him any favors when it comes to his relationship with Eric Bischoff. We’ll have to see if Tony Khan decides to respond as well.
