Eric Bischoff Calls Vince Russo a “Dipsh*t” For Comments Regarding Drew McIntyre, More


During a recent interview with Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT, Eric Bischoff responded to Vince Russo criticizing Drew McIntyre, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On his respect for McIntyre: “I have a lot of respect for him. I enjoy his work, he’s believable, he’s credible, he immerses himself into his character and his role, which is all you can really ask for in a performer. Do I think he’s at the pinnacle of his potential? No. He’s only been at the position he’s been in for, well, what time is it? That’s how short a period of time it has been! The coffee is still warm in the cup. It’s not like he’s been in that role for a long time.”

On McInyre’s potential to get better: “He’s already a phenomenal performer. Guess what’s going to happen a year from now? Or a year and a half from now? Was John Cena a great performer when he first became world champion? I don’t know, some people might say he was – when I say I don’t know I really don’t know – was he as good as he would ultimately go on to be? Absolutely not. No one is. Stone Cold Steve Austin didn’t just become Stone Cold Steve Austin. It took him a long time. When Stone Cold came to WWE, he was the freaking Ringmaster! The Ringmaster! He was the extension of a circus act for crying out loud. And it wasn’t until Steve found out who Steve Austin was as a character and began to integrate that into his persona on television and then it continued to improve and grow and become something bigger and larger than it started with. Drew is like that.”

On Vince Russo’s criticism of McIntyre: “People may want to criticize [McIntyre], especially dips**** like Vince Russo who like to present the illusion that they have some critical insight that they really don’t, so they say s*** that makes it sound like they do. Let’s talk about it a year from now, six months from now, even three months from now. I really think we’re going to see a much different world champion six, even three months from now and I already like what we’re seeing.”
