On the latest After 83 Weeks with Christy Olson, Eric Bischoff talked about a wide range of topics including fans comparing former WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch to WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin. This is where he gave his take about this possibility.
“I’m more of a Becky Lynch fan right now than I have been a fan of anybody in the last fifteen years. It’s because about two weeks ago I began noticing her social media, tweets, the messages she was putting out…If she doesn’t have somebody [writing the tweets] for her and she’s doing it herself, she’s going to be the next Stone Cold Steve Austin for WWE, because she is a believable character. Forget about what I’ve seen on television. I’m not discarding it, but setting it aside. Her ability to capture my imagination on social media was profound. I mean, I went, whoa! She’s got it!”
