Eric Bischoff – ‘I Pull No F**king Punches, Dax Harwood, You Showed Your A*s!’



On a recent edition of his “83 Weeks” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff commented on Dax Harwood’s reaction to the criticisms he has given AEW over the years.

Harwood has had enough of Bischoff’s negative comments, calling out the former WCW President on Twitter for his remarks and accusing him of being a stalker for closely monitoring AEW President Tony Khan’s social media activity.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On his exchange with Dax Harwood on Twitter: “Look, I spent over 30 years of my life in the professional wrestling industry. I have been at the very, very bottom; I have been at the very, very top and I’ve been everywhere in between. I’ve seen success, I’ve seen failure. I’ve seen the patterns that lead to success. And I’ve seen, more importantly, the patterns — in this case, at least — that lead to failure. So when people do ask my opinion, I am forthright. I pull no f**king punches, I broker no bulls**t. I just give it to you straight. And for Uncle Dax to suggest that somebody’s paying me to do it reflects the depth of his stupidity. That was stupid, and clearly not true. I have no deal with WWE. I don’t have a Legends contract with WWE. I get a phone call every once in a while to sign some s**t, which I’m happy to do because the money’s really good. But beyond that, I don’t really talk to anybody in WWE. I talked to Bruce maybe once every three or four months. We exchange texts that usually have about three or four — I guess if you added up all the incomplete sentences, it might equal one or two sentences. That’s it. That’s all I got as far as my relationship with WWE.

“So Dax, you showed your a*s. And you do that on a pretty regular basis, I might add on social media. You might want to consider just not doing it. Because it’s not getting your character over, it’s kind of exposing you, and all you have to do is look at a lot of the responses you’re getting to figure that out. But no, I’m not being paid anything by anybody. There are no third parties involved. It’s my honest opinion, Dax. And yes, it’s a little brutal for some. You know, especially soft people, people that just can’t handle the truth. And they bruise very, very easily when you’re not putting them over, or making excuses for them. They bruise really, really bad. And yes, my commentary sometimes draws blood. But sometimes, it’s necessary to make a point.

On Harwood accusing him of being a ‘stalker’: “All right, enough of this stupidity. But now, let’s go checking my timeline. Now, the premise of this is Dax suggesting that I’m a stalker. He’s studying my timeline. Who’s stalking who here, Dax? Just let it go. So I mean that’s — and the hypocritical part of it, it’s probably more encompassing. I guess, there’s not a lot of hypocrisy in this. It’s more like stupidity, and just f**king weird. So Dax, if you don’t like what I’m saying, quit following me. I know you tried Dax to launch your own podcast. In fact, I have a tweet that you sent me, or I think it was a direct message, it may have been a tweet, that you sent me a while back saying how much you appreciated my podcast and how you pattern yours after mine. Although yours failed miserably. Fact or not? Truth or not? It failed. It’s not on the air anymore, And it didn’t do that well when it did.

“My point is, Dax, rather than following me and studying my timeline, just learn how to get over and let the audience take care of itself. Let your audience take care of itself, meaning don’t try to get yourself over to social media because you suck at it. Get yourself over in the ring, because you’re actually pretty good at that. Well, there’s a lot of room for improvement, because you can’t cut a promo to save your life. But your work in the ring is pretty good. And I’ve always enjoyed this kind of throwback. And when I say throwback, I don’t mean derisively. But I like the style that I see, I like that kind of Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard kind of style. It’s a little bit of a throwback — poor choice of words, but it’s the only things that come into mind. So I like to style but Dax, you’re doing yourself absolutely no favors by trying to be Tony’s protector. So just focus on your own s**t and quit studying my timeline, stalker.”

On FTR being known as one of the best tag teams in the world: “According to who? By what standard? Let’s use Dave Meltzer-speak, because he’s an analyst now, and he studies. By what metric they are one of the best tag teams in the world? Certainly not financially. Can’t point to FTR and say, ‘Yeah, but every time they’re on television, look at the success they have in ratings. Look at their quarter hours, look at their look at how much money they draw on the road.’ Of course, they’re not on the road because AEW can barely get enough people to produce a television show, much less go to a house show. So, there’s no metric other than emotion, which is all subjective, it’s not objective, whereby anybody can state that FTR is one of the best tag teams in the world.

“If you like them, great. I like them as a tag team, as I just said a few moments ago. But to suggest that one of the best tag teams in the world is kind of like a branding statement that we just all latch onto and continue. But it’s not really true. They didn’t make it in WWE. They had an opportunity, just like I had an opportunity in 2019, I didn’t make it. I got fired. I didn’t adapt, I didn’t get myself over. Just like FTR, they had their opportunity. They couldn’t get over. A lot of other people did, and they didn’t. There are a lot of reasons for that, but the fact is, they didn’t get over. And now they’re in AEW and yes, they’re swimming in a much, much, much, much smaller pond. So in their minds, perhaps they feel like a bigger fish. And I’m not saying — I’m not sure. I haven’t — I haven’t had any interactions with Mr. Wheeler. He hasn’t taken to Twitter to call me out. So, I’m gonna leave him out of the equation. But yeah, Dax, you’ve had your opportunity in WWE, you failed. You didn’t get over it. Well, it is what it is. I know it hurts, it doesn’t sound nice. It’s so cruel. But it’s also true. And now he’s an AEW, he feels like a bigger fish in a much, much smaller pond where really hardly anybody’s over. And I’m not suggesting it’s all his fault. But it is what it is.”
