Eric Bischoff on if he Thinks AEW is Losing Money, Cost of Dynamite


Eric Bischoff discussed a wide range of topics on the latest edition of 83 Weeks. Here are the highlights: 

Costs of putting on a live wrestling show: 

“If this was a game show, and I was a contestant, and I had to guess, I would say if they’re spending, if AEW is spending anything less than $400,000 per episode, I’d be surprised.”

On if AEW is losing money: 

“I don’t know. Yeah, but, well, my first answer is I don’t know, I have no idea, and unless someone would open up their books and I could see with my own eyes, all I have is an opinion, and my opinion isn’t worth anymore than anybody else’s at this point. But, with an asterisk, if anything that I hear is true, and I believe some of it is, it’s going to be a long time before they’re profitable. They can still say they’re number two, I guess, if they want, but if you’re going to compare the numbers that really matter, not the numbers that you’re selling from a marketing perspective, and bragging about, but if you’re actually going to compare revenues, I don’t know.”
