On the latest episode of his 83 Weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff talked to Conrad Thompson about his new Executive Director position within WWE and why he is moving to Stamford Connecticut to help him do the job in a more efficient manner:

Eric Bischoff calls this “the biggest opportunity of his career:”

“I want to let everybody know, the magnitude of this opportunity and the challenge and the commitment that goes along with it is not lost on me. There’s been a couple of times over the last few days when I’ve been driving around in my truck or taking my dog for a hike and going, ‘Wow.’ This may be – it’s not maybe, this is the biggest opportunity I’ve ever had in this industry. Granted, when Bill Shaw made me president of WCW obviously that was a very big moment, but I was learning on the job there. I had nothing to lose there.

“In this situation, this is an entirely different ballgame here. This is a very sophisticated company in WWE, there is a great team already in place. They’re moving the SmackDown show to FOX network which will obviously have a lot of eyeballs on it, in every way. So the magnitude of the opportunity is not lost on me.”


Eric Bischoff reveals he’s moving to Stamford, Connecticut:


“I’m honored, I’m humbled and I cannot express, even here cause this is a different kind of excitement for me. I haven’t felt this way, maybe in forever, but for at least twenty years. This is a whole different ballgame and I– honestly, Loree and I, and my dog Nikki, we’re going to load up our truck and we’re heading out to Stanford, probably on the 1oth or 11th of July. I mean literally we’re going out there with the clothes on our back and some of it in boxes, and we’re starting over from scratch and I’ve never been more excited. The opportunity at this stage in my life and in my career to be able to make a move like this is so…exciting doesn’t cover it. It’s thrilling and I just can wait.
“Yeah, this is not a remote control kind of an opportunity here. This is a deep dive. This is I’m sure a 23/7 kind of a gig, This is not something I can do on my laptop remotely. This is the real deal.”
