Eric Bischoff is a veteran in the pro wrestling business and his knowledge of the business cannot be questioned. He is well aware of the changing landscape of pro wrestling and how things can change for the better or the worse. Bischoff once again went after AEW recently.

AEW certainly has come far since its humble beginnings back in 2019. There are numerous aspects that the company has improved on, but there remains a lot of room for improvement.

Eric Bischoff has been going after AEW for quite a while now for various reasons. While speaking to Ryan Satin for his Out of Character podcast, Eric Bischoff stated that he thinks AEW is just a ‘mom & pop hamburger’ stand in comparison to WWE.

“The product is boring. It’s just nothing new has happened. Nothing has changed. Nothing has emerged. Nothing has evolved. It’s the same formula. Up until recently the same process, we’re talking about WWE which is by far the dominant [company].

There is no competition. AEW is not competition, no matter how much Tony Khan wants to believe it is. It’s not. We’re in the same business, Tony. That’s not the same thing as being in competition. [You’re] not taking market share, Tony. You’re just in the same business. It’s kind of like having a little mom-and-pop hamburger stand on the corner and saying that you’re in competition with Arby’s. You’re not.”

Tony Khan also believes AEW is a legit competitor to WWE, unlike other promotions. It is unlikely Eric Bischoff will stop going after AEW anytime soon, by the looks of it. Only time will tell if Easy E ever finds his way back to WWE.
