Eric Bischoff has remained critical of most wrestling promotions out there. Previously, he said that AEW should opt for smaller venues to match the energy of the show with the audience’s enthusiasm. Recently, he said that AEW is the new TNA wrestling, with crowds being the only differentiating factor.
Many thought that Bischoff was looking for a job in pro wrestling once again. However, the former World Championship Wrestling president said that he has no interest in it anymore, as he is happy with his life. After being asked about the same on 83 Weeks, he said.
“I wouldn’t want a job. The reason I wouldn’t want a job in a wrestling business is first and foremost, it would require travel. I don’t like to travel and if I do travel, it’s because it’s something I really look forward to doing. I still do appearances, but to travel every single week, it ain’t happening. It’s just not. So there’s not a job in wrestling that really interests me. Again, don’t take it wrong. I love the business. I’m grateful as hell that I had an opportunity to work in the business.”
He further said that he doesn’t want to change anything about his career choices, but now is not the time for him to go back to wrestling. The former RAW general manager said that he is excited about upcoming projects as well, and would rather pursue them.
I wouldn’t have changed anything in terms of career choices, but that time has come and gone. It’s time for a different chapter in my life. There are new projects that I’m equally as excited about if not more than I ever was wrestling. I would rather pursue that. I like doing this. This is fun for me. I don’t have to go anywhere. I like my life just the way it is. I don’t want anybody to f**k with it.”
