Eric Bischoff On Why It Didn’t Work With The WWE


During an Starrcast media scrum, Eric Bischoff revealed why he feels like it didn’t work with the WWE and whether he is still interested in working in the business. Here are the highlights:

It was a great opportunity. I’m grateful for the opportunity. It didn’t work out, but, in life, that happens sometimes. There are no hard feelings. I had a great talk with Vince a week and a half ago. Everything’s cool. There are so many talented people that are working there. It’s a great company. It was just a bad fit, that’s all. One of the things that I learned is that you need to be really passionate about making a commitment that big. It was a big job, I said that when I took the opportunity. To be honest about it, I think that my personality and the way I approach things creatively and the way I do business just didn’t fit their formula. That’s something I’m going to be a bit more careful about moving forward.

On If He Wants To Still Work In The Business:

Kinda been there, done that. If I’m going to attack something, it’s gotta be something that I really feel challenged by or excited about. [Commentary] is kind of going back to the future a little bit. I’m not sure if that would be a good fit for anybody.

I love challenges, that something I’ve always been attracted to. One of the reasons things worked out so well with me at WCW is that they were in the tank. They had nothing to lose and it was like an open slate. That’s like a mad scientist’s playground. I’m a moth that’s always going to be attracted to that kind of flame. I don’t have a goal or agenda right now. I have a movie project [the Hulk Hogan biopic Pandemonium] you may have heard about. I’m going to dive into that, it’s a whole new world. It’s something I’ve never been involved with before, and it’s something I’m excited to be involved with.
