During the most recent edition of Eric Bischoff’s “Bischoff On Wrestling” podcast, among many other topics, he touched on why the cruiserweights have not been as successful as most predicted them to be coming out of the inaugural Cruiserweight Classic tournament.
Here’s what Eric Bischoff had to say:
“No. They missed the mark on the cruiserweight division twenty minutes after they launched it because they haven’t really defined what it is. Defining a division based on a weight class is not going to resonate with the audience. It has to be a style differentiation. The matches have to look like and feel different than the rest of their content, otherwise it’s just a match with lighter guys, it doesn’t mean anything. I think they have been missing the mark with 205 Live since they launched it. I think they’ll continue to miss the mark and I don’t think Enzo, or anyone else will have any impact on the success or failure of that division.”
