Eric Bischoff is a veteran in the pro wrestling business and is certainly one of the greatest minds to have ever been part of it. He is well aware of the changing landscape of pro wrestling and how it might not always be the best. Bischoff once again went after AEW recently.
AEW certainly has come far since its humble beginnings back in 2019. The company has noticeably improved when it comes to its in-ring product and overall production values. Of course, there is still a lot of room for improvement.
While speaking on a recent episode of his podcast “Strictly Business,” the WWE Hall Of Famer blasted AEW for their horrible promos, stating that they are a waste of time.
“I f***ing cannot stand watching 80% of the interviews that I’m forced to sit through if I want to sit and watch the show,” Bischoff said. “AEW is no different. In fact, I’ve seen some horrible, horrible sh** on AEW. So the idea that they have the freedom and the talents involved like that’s somehow gonna guarantee or ensure quality, well, that sh** went out the window a long time ago because I’ve seen promos on AEW that I would never allow on a television show, ever.
“I haven’t seen a good promo in AEW that creates emotion or advances a story. It’s just words. There’s no connection to the character or the audience, and just a waste of time. So God, please, give me somebody that’s figured out a way to shoot promos that matter or just don’t shoot ones that don’t; I’ll take that.
But I’ve seen some horsesh**,” Bischoff said. “If you don’t recognize horsesh** and you just keep stepping in it because you don’t want to admit that it’s horsesh**, you’re walking around dragging that horsesh** everywhere you go.
Tony Khan also believes AEW is a legit competitor to WWE, unlike other promotions. It is unlikely Eric Bishoff will stop going after AEW anytime soon by the looks of it.
