WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff is one of the most respected veterans in the pro wrestling business, as many believe his mind for the industry is invaluable. He has been a major critic of AEW for the past couple of years and now it appears he has no interest in working for AEW at all.

Earlier this year the former WWE executive called AEW a ‘vanity project.’ In fact, Easy E even repeatedly criticized AEW for having poorly crafted storylines and having matches for the sake of it.

It if wasn’t clear already, Eric Bischoff isn’t the biggest fan of AEW. He doesn’t even believe AEW is contributing anything to the world of professional wrestling, unlike what WWE does.

While speaking on his 83 Weeks Podcast, Eric Bischoff talked about CM Punk’s return to WWE after so long. During the conversation, Eric Bischoff made it clear that he has no desire to ever work with Tony Khan.


”There’s still people saying ‘Oh the only reason Eric’s still saying anything negative about AEW is because Tony Khan wouldn’t give him a job. Tony Khan has the money to make me do a lot of s***, but would I actually enjoy or embrace the opportunity to work there? Absolutely not, that it would take an ungodly amount of money for me to put myself through it.”

Eric Bischoff even proclaimed CM Punk as possibly the most financially successful decision in pro wrestling history. Regardless, only time will tell whether AEW will be able to improve its product in 2024, as AEW’s momentum is at an all-time low right now.
