Since AEW’s inception, several former WWE legends and Superstars have appeared on Dynamite. One such veteran is former WCW President Eric Bischoff, who shocked the world by appearing for the promotion, considering how close he is to WWE.
However, Eric Bischoff has been absent from AEW programming over the past several months since he grew critical of AEW’s booking decisions. Bischoff recently addressed his relationship with AEW during a recent episode of Insight with Chris Van Vliet.
“Yeah that one (the AEW relationship) is not as good anymore, but that was my choice. I knew when I said what I was going to say that it would be the last time I get invited there. I was fine with that. I don’t worry about it. It is what it is. But when I was bouncing back between WWE and AEW, the first time I got a call from AEW, I called Bruce Prichard. I said that I just want to let you know out of courtesy and respect for our friendship, I am still tight with Bruce, please let Vince know if he has got a question about this or an issue, please give me a shout. If not, I am going to go ahead. I got the word back to go and have a ball. It’s just communication and common courtesy.”
Eric Bischoff hasn’t been involved in either WWE or AEW for quite some time. It will be interesting to see if he comes back as a producer for either RAW or SmackDown in the near future. Stay tuned to Ringside News as we keep you updated on this story as it develops.
