Eric Bischoff Explains How He’d Handle WWE Talents Asking For Their Releases


Former WCW President Eric Bischoff was recently interviewed on the “After 83 Weeks” podcast. Bischoff talked about longtime WWE stars possibly jumping ship to All Elite Wrestling (AEW), and some WWE stars not being able to just get up and quit whenever they want. Here are the highlights:

Longtime WWE stars possibly wanting to jump ship to AEW: “It’s a talent driven business, and the Khan family is willing to write a big check for Chris Jericho and they’re willing to write big checks for other talent who may be in WWE but not happy,” said Bischoff.

“If I was Vince McMahon right now I would probably tie them up in as many strings as I possibly could. In fact I’m sure he already has.”

Some WWE stars not being able to just quit and leave: “I don’t think there’s a lot of talent in WWE that can just wake up on Monday morning and go, ‘You know what? I’m gonna quit and I’m gonna go work for these guys,'” said Bischoff.
