Eric Bischoff Slams AEW Forbidden Door Match

One big thing

WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff harshly criticized The Elite’s performance at AEW Forbidden Door, calling their match against The Acclaimed and Hiroshi Tanahashi “the sh**s.”


• Bischoff expressed his views on his “83 Weeks” podcast.
• He compared the match unfavorably to 1992 WCW standards.
• Bischoff accused The Elite of not putting in their best effort.
• He suggested The Elite looked physically unfit.

Key quotes

• “If we would’ve shot that on ‘WCW Saturday Night’ back in 1992, and it was a taped show, we would’ve either re-shot it or not air it.”
• “They didn’t even phone it in. They yelled it from across the parking lot.”

Why it matters

The Elite are Executive Vice Presidents of AEW, making their in-ring performance crucial to the company’s image and success. Bischoff’s criticism highlights potential concerns about the quality of AEW’s top talent and their commitment to their roles.

The big picture

Bischoff’s comments add to ongoing debates about AEW’s product quality and The Elite’s dual roles as executives and performers. His suggestion that The Elite should focus more on backstage duties than in-ring performances could influence fan perception and potentially impact AEW’s strategy.

What’s next

The Elite’s future direction in AEW remains unclear, with no advertised appearances for the upcoming “AEW Dynamite: Beach Break” in Chicago.
