The WWE Hall of Fame and former WCW President Eric Bischoff recently participated in his “83 Weeks” podcast. So he talked about what AEW Chairman and CEO Tony Khan made to WWE last Friday night before the head-to-head confrontation between WWE. SmackDown and AEW rampage. WWE first announced that SmackDown last Friday night will be a super-sized version. This means that the show will be 30 minutes longer. WWE also announced that the last 30 minutes of SmackDown will be commercial free.
AEW will respond by giving a one-hour buy-in pre-show before the Friday night rampage and eliminating CM Punk vs. Matt Saidal Match without commercials. Tony Khan also talked to WWE about trash and was looking forward to defeating WWE’s flagship show, SmackDown, having more money than WWE, and last Monday. Pointed out how WWE RAW was “sucked” at night.
According to Eric Bischoff, the only advice given to Tony Khan is to fight silently, focus on AEW, and bring out the best products he can do.
Eric Bischoff said:
“If Tony [Khan] I was supposed to call me for advice. What will happen to this? I will fight silently. “You can prove that you can do it just by putting out the best product possible. Focus on that. Now this is a strange thing coming from me, isn’t it? The man who challenged Vince McMahon. The man who finished it. But here’s the difference. I was actually competing with him. I was face-to-face. A real face-to-face confrontation. Similarly, my show starts every week. It started at the same time. “
Eric Bischoff then worked on Tony Khan’s comment that AEW was exactly the same as WCW in 1996 and did not make the same mistakes as WCW. Mr. Bischoff said that AEW actually competes weekly and not only invents mistakes by constantly comparing and guessing competition, but also has no desire to actually compete in actual direct competition and who will market those markets. Khan had to “silence f ***” because he was kicking WWE’s ass in a real face-to-face showdown in 1996, not in a cosplay competition, until he saw if he could win.
Eric Bischoff said:
“And otherwise, Tony comes out and says,” We are in the 1996 stage of WCW and will not make their mistakes. ” Tony, you are inventing some mistakes, brothers. “By going out there and constantly comparing myself and thinking about competition, but not motivated-I almost said the ball-” Well, let’s face it in person. Let’s really compete Let’s see who can gain who’s market share. ”It’s a real competition. So I’m a little disappointed with the rhetoric and some talent I’m hearing from Tony. Shut up man, f ***. Until you actually compete and actually compete in your favor, and by the way, Tony, in 1996 I was kicking WWE’s ass. Every week! Not a cosplay tournament, but a real match. “
