AEW has seen a lot of stories come out in recent memory, especially surrounding CM Punk. The entire pro wrestling world is talking about these stories, and Eric Bischoff doesn’t believe it’s the best look for the company.

Eric Bischoff knows a thing or two about stories leaking to the press. He had several stories come out while he led WCW, and many of them are tales he is fighting to this day. Needless to say, Easy E understands how bad press can damage an operation.

While speaking about this subject on his 83 Weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff opened up a bit about AEW’s current backstage issues. He also noted the unprofessionalism that is apparently backstage in WWE that opens the door for such leaks.

“The lack of leadership, the lack of professionalism is manifesting, because someone is talking to these outside news sites. This is internal business. This should be dealt with internally, and it’s not. There are too many people talking outside the office. This is, in my opinion, confidential, proprietary, information that should not be talked about with anybody. If you’re a talent, if there are no clauses in those agreements that prohibit and outline what talent can and cannot say about AEW’s business, then there damn well should be. If it is there and not being enforced, and heads are not rolling, then there should be and that’s an internal issue with legal.”


Eric Bischoff doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to AEW business. It also appears that Bischoff and Tony Khan aren’t speaking like they might have been a while ago. If anything, we certainly know where Eric Bischoff stands with things.

AEW has a ton of drama going on backstage, and it appears that there is no shortage of leaks backstage who are more than ready to blow the whistle whenever anything pops off.

What’s your take on all these backstage stories about AEW coming out? Should Tony Khan put his foot down? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you’re thinking!
