Why Eric Bischoff Thinks The AEW Product Is ‘Lame’

One Big Thing

Eric Bischoff, former WCW executive, has once again criticized All Elite Wrestling (AEW), calling the product “lame” and the company name uninspiring.

Key Points

  • Bischoff believes the name “AEW” lacks presence and sounds like a “plumber’s union.”
  • He claims the product is “bleeding out on the table” and needs triage from a storyline perspective.
  • Bischoff criticizes the roster, saying 75% of them look like they’re there to “change your tires.”
  • He jokingly suggests AEW’s slogan should be “Where the Best Wrestlers in the World Can’t Draw a Dime.”

Bischoff’s Past Appearances in AEW

Despite his criticisms, Bischoff has made two appearances for AEW:

  • As a debate moderator in a segment between Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy on an August 2020 episode of “Dynamite.”
  • Hosting a “townhall” segment between Chris Jericho and MJF two months later.

Why It Matters

Eric Bischoff’s comments reflect an ongoing debate about AEW’s product and its place in the professional wrestling landscape. As a former executive of WCW during the Monday Night Wars, Bischoff’s perspective carries weight, but his criticisms also highlight the challenges AEW faces in establishing itself as a strong alternative to WWE.
