Eric Bischoff Doesn’t See Vince McMahon Walking Away From WWE



Eric Bischoff gave his thoughts on various topics on the latest episode of his “Strictly Business” podcast.

During the podcast, Bischoff talked about Vince McMahon’s place in the WWE/UFC merger and how he doesn’t see him walking away. He said,

“I would never bet against Vince McMahon in terms of Vince doing what Vince wants to do. My instinct and a little bit of experience suggests to me that Vince doesn’t want to walk away, this is Vince’s baby. This is a part of Vince’s family. I don’t see him walking from it. Nothing has ever happened in my professional lifetime that suggested to me that Vince wants to do something other than what he’s currently doing. He doesn’t have hobbies, he doesn’t appear to have much of a social life. He works like a maniac, he lives to work and he works to live. I don’t think Vince could be happy doing anything else other than what he’s doing. You know, some of the stock price issues could be a reflection of a lot of the news that we’ve read over the past couple of days about the pending litigation and the criminal charges and all of the crap that’s floating around out there. Personally, I don’t think any of that sticks. It’s a lot of nasty noise and a lot of uncomfortable information, but I don’t think at the end of it all it will come to fruition or mean anything, Vince will be just fine in that regard. I don’t know that, I just feel that. But, I don’t see him wanting to do anything else. If they’re going to take him out of there, it will be kicking and screaming, it won’t be him saying it’s time to go.”

Even though he doesn’t see McMahon leaving, even if he does, Bischoff doesn’t think it negatively impacts WWE. He stated,

“If Vince McMahon walked away this afternoon, cashed in his 28 million stocks, whatever he’s got, took his three billion dollars, bought a yacht and floated around the Caribbean for the rest of his life, I do not see it having any adverse impact on WWE, and that’s a credit to Vince. Vince has done such a great job building that organization, surrounding himself with the right people, on the creative side of the business, business side of the business. Certainly now with Ari Emanuel and Endeavor behind it, the quality of leadership and talent in WWE right now is amazing. I wish a lot of other major companies had the same type of leadership in management.”
