WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff isn’t the biggest fan of AEW. He doesn’t even believe AEW is contributing anything to the world of professional wrestling and has constantly been criticizing AEW over the past couple of years. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that Tony Khan is happy about Bischoff’s Strictly Business podcast ending, labeling it as a fraud podcast.

Eric Bischoff also set the record straight when it came to claims that he was mad Tony Khan never offered him job in AEW. Clearly, a lot of discourse between the two remained for a long time.

Strictly Business, the podcast hosted by Eric Bischoff and Jon Alba, has concluded with its final episode airing this week. Taking to Twitter, Alba shared the news of the podcast’s end and expressed gratitude for the opportunity to work with ‘Easy-E.’ Alba indicated that ‘Easy-E’ would be redirecting his efforts towards other ventures.

“Unfortunately, this week’s episode of Strictly Business with Eric Bischoff will be the last edition of the podcast. Eric’s schedule is loaded these days, and for good reasons, he’ll [be] putting his efforts into other endeavors. 


“I’m extremely grateful to have had a chance to share a platform with Eric for the past two years. We are 38 years apart, and have wildly different views of pro wrestling, storytelling, and even life. Yet I think that has been one of the most fascinating parts of our dynamic and never fails to make for engaging conversation. I have always said Eric is one of the greatest television performers in wrestling history, and doing this show has been one of the most exciting challenges of my career. He has made me a better broadcaster, helped open new professional doors for me, and has been extremely gracious to me personally. 

I hope you’ll join us this week as we bid farewell to the show! Thank you to the Ad Free Shows team as well for always making it featured programming and everything who has tuned in the past couple of years. Hopefully we’ve been “different than” the rest.”

AEW President Tony Khan took to Twitter and commented on Jon Alba’s post, as he called the Strictly Business podcast a ‘fraud podcast’ and added that ending it before the next AEW media deal was the right call.

”Sunsetting this fraud of a business podcast before the next AEW media deal is a wise choice. #AEWDynamite”

We will have to wait and see whether AEW will manage to secure a big deal with Warner Bros Discovery as their negotiations continue to be underway, else Eric Bischoff will once again go after Tony Khan and AEW in general.
