Eric Bischoff Talks In-Depth About His WWE Release


On this week’s 83 Weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff commented on his WWE release last week. Bischoff is honest about having no regrets, not fitting in with the WWE culture, and how long he expected to be there.

Here are some highlights.

Eric On What Went Wrong:

“It didn’t work out the way I wanted it to work out. It clearly didn’t work out the way Vince McMahon wanted it to work out. That happens. I’m not taking any of it personally. Professionally, I’m taking a hard look at it and thinking it through. More than anything, I’m grateful for the opportunity. Part of the reason is, I had a chance to work with a great team of people. The writing staff for SmackDown in particular, as well as a lot of other writers who were on Raw. They are very very talented and unbelievably hard working and dedicated group of people. To have the opportunity to work with people like that, was worth this experiment.”

Eric On How Long He Expected To Be In WWE:

“I didn’t come here thinking I was going to be in WWE for 5-10 years. I looked at it as a relatively short term opportunity, meaning 2-3 years. I didn’t think it would be quite this short term, but sometimes this happens. WWE is a great company with a very defined culture and process. I didn’t necessarily fit into it. I’m not sad, disappointed, any of those things. Just looking forward to the next opportunity, whenever and wherever that may be.”
