Eric Bischoff discussed how he found out about being inducted into the Hall of Fame this year during the latest episode of the 83 Weeks Podcast.
WWE announced the news and made it seem a surprise when Bischoff was interviewed by Corey Graves on the After The Bell podcast.
“It wasn’t a surprise,” Bischoff said. “I’m not going to lie to you guys. I knew, I was aware. However, the reaction was very real because while I knew ‘Okay, wow, this is going to happen,’ that conversation was the first conversation I had outside of the one with my wife and it didn’t become real to me until I was officially notified on a WWE platform.
“Yeah I knew but it hadn’t sunken in yet, and I didn’t know how they were going to do it and it wasn’t scripted, it was kind of ‘Hey, expect an announcement tomorrow,’ but I didn’t anticipate how it would make me feel when I actually heard it from someone other than myself. At that moment, that’s when it hit me.”
