Will Ospreay, a significant acquisition for AEW, didn’t hesitate to take aim at Triple H after The Game’s recent comments. Following the remarks, Eric Bischoff has now shared his thoughts on the matter.

During a recent appearance on the Pat McAfee Show as part of WWE World, Triple H discussed his approach to hiring new talent for the company. He mentioned that many performers choose other promotions over WWE because they offer a lighter schedule. This insight sheds light on the decisions wrestlers make when considering their careers and work-life balance.

“When I see people coming out of trying to make it, and then they pick a job where, well, they work less, the schedule is lighter, then I’m like, ‘I’m glad I didn’t pick you.’ If you’re not in it for the grind, at that point early in your career, you have no business being here.”

As seen on a previous week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Will Ospreay would directly respond to Triple H’s comments and took quite a few personal shots at The Game for good measure


Eric Bischoff, while speaking on his “83 Weeks” podcast, shared his thoughts on professional wrestler Will Ospreay and discussed his recent comments taking a shot at Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. Bischoff began by praising Ospreay, stating,

“I don’t know Will Ospreay. I am super impressed with what I’ve seen of him so far, super impressed with what I feel his potential could be.”

However, he questioned whether Ospreay would reach his full potential in AEW, noting that many other wrestlers who joined the company hadn’t met their expected success. Bischoff expressed understanding about Ospreay’s feeling.

“If he took it personally, I understand that. It’s human nature. I can’t criticize someone for being human.” However, he cautioned Ospreay against taking cheap shots and suggested that he should have been more creative with his words.

“I kind of wish he would have been a little more creative if you’re going to take a shot at someone. I’m going to just set aside the whole issue of even acknowledging the competition for right now.”

Bischoff mentioned that it might not be the best idea to criticize Paul Levesque especially considering WWE’s recent success, particularly following WrestleMania, and the positive reception to their creative turnaround.

“If I’m Will Ospreay, and I’m new to this market as he is, and I’m trying to build a following, which he is, the last thing I want to do is take a shot at Paul Levesque,” Bischoff said. He highlighted how WWE has experienced massive success under Levesque’s leadership and cautioned Ospreay against taking cheap shots without a solid base or following to back it up.

Bischoff also mentioned that taking a shot at Stephanie McMahon was unnecessary, suggesting that Ospreay could have handled the situation better. “If you have to do it, be good at it because otherwise, you look kind of low rent,” Bischoff concluded, pointing out that Ospreay has significant potential and shouldn’t risk damaging his reputation with careless remarks.
