Eric Bischoff: “Dolph Ziggler Stands Out To Me The Most On The WWE Roster!”, Talks nWo Rumors


During a recent appearance on the “After 83 Weeks with Christy Olson” podcast, former WWE and WCW star Eric Bischoff gave some high praise for Dolph Ziggler and also discussed the rumors about nWo royalties being made to Scott Hall and Kevin Nash through WWE. You can check out some highlights and a video from the interview below:

On which WWE star stands out the most to him right now: “Whenever I see Dolph [Ziggler], I believe. Part of it is because I know his background. He’s like Kurt Angle in the sense that he can be a very comedic character one minute, and he can be a believable badass if he needs to be the next. And I kind of dig that. To me that’s believable.”

On the rumors that Scott Hall and Kevin Nash get nWo merchandise royalties from WWE: “I can’t tell you with any authority or honesty if Scott or Kevin, either of them or both of them receive a royalty on that. That’s their dealings or would be their dealings with WWE, and I have no inside knowledge about that. I personally I’ve heard that story before and I find it difficult to believe. That would have been a very rare exception on Vince McMahon’s part, because the NWO was not Scott Hall’s likeness, or Kevin Nash’s likeness, or Hulk Hogan’s. The NWO was a separate, distinct trademark that WWE acquired in their acquisition of WCW assets. So there would be no reason to share in a percentage of that, unless it was part of a negotiation that I don’t know about.”
