Eric Bischoff is a former WCW legend and booker and is very well known as one of the harshest critics of Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling, alongside several other famous critics such as Jim Cornette.

During a recent interview on the Battlegrounds podcast, Khan finally reacted to Eric Bischoff for his recent and also constant criticism of AEW debuting new wrestlers without any build-up or proper introduction, and called the former WCW President’s comments ‘ironic’.

Here’s what Tony said:

“When I was a young wrestling fan, that was one of the things I really liked about WCW Nitro.

I think it would be very ironic that the same promoter now would tell you, you don’t want to see these faces or introduce new people that we’ve never seen before on TV, because they’re actually the ones that did that.

There were all kinds of new faces I’d read in the magazines, all kinds of people I’ve never seen before, and they would just walk out and wrestle on Nitro like it was perfectly natural, and I thought it was the coolest thing.

But I guess that’s not acceptable anymore, even though it’s much, much, much easier to access information on the Internet than it was in 1996.”


Eric Bischoff on CM Punk

Eric Bischoff once again commented on the situation with CM Punk. In an interview with Dominic DeAngelo of WrestlingInc, Bischoff was asked about his thoughts on Tony Khan’s handling of the CM Punk situation. Here is some of what Eric Bischoff said.

“But look, it appears as though CM Punk is gone. I think I was the one famously that came out and said that CM Punk would be a huge financial flop and hell, I’m right. He’s got to be one of the biggest financial flops. Tony and that scrum, “He was a part of this pay-per-view and it did this and he was a part of that and it did this.” And it’s basically saying that nobody else on that pay-per-view had anything to do with that success.”

“It was all because of CM Punk. I tend to disagree with that. Do I think Punk probably had some uplift in ratings temporarily? Sure he did, but it didn’t last long. That’s in black and white. You can’t argue that part. Now you can argue, I guess if Tony wants to, he can argue incremental success over a period of a couple pay-per-views or licensing or merchandising or whatever. You can argue that, but you’re assigning a lot of that increase in success to one guy, and I don’t know that that’s fair or accurate, but, again, it’s none of my business. I don’t really care.”

He thinks CM Punk is gone, and that Punk wasn’t the financial success that TK hoped he would be. Do you agree with Eric Bischoff?
