Eric Bischoff Says He Doesn’t Think WWE Needs Him With Triple H In Charge

Triple H recently took over the WWE’s creative and since then a lot of big changes have happened such as several former WWE Stars being brought back, an improvement in the storylines including booking of the matches and the characters and professional wrestling fans being excited again. WWE Hall of Famer and former WCW President Eric Bischoff spoke with Shakiel Mahjouri on Triple H being the WWE’s brand-new Head of Creative and how he doesn’t think WWE needs him as everything he has to contribute can be seen on WWE TV already.

This is what Eric Bischoff said:

“No, because there’s no need for me. What I have to contribute at this point is — we’re beginning to see on television. Maybe this is just me being so hyper-optimistic because the last 10 years of wrestling has bored the F outta me. I want to be excited about it. I want to be interested, I talked about it. I’ve been in the business for 35 years. Damn, I want to be excited about the business. But it’s just bored me to death for such a long time.”

Eric Bischoff also spoke about how he had hopes that something different would be showcased on AEW TV several months ago and how he was critical of what the WWE has been showing, but now he is excited.

This is what Eric Bischoff said:

“I had a little bit of hope with AEW. I had some hope there. I thought, ‘Oh, man,’ I mean, up until probably six months ago, or eight months ago, I kind of threw in the towel, because I started seeing the same pattern of whatever over and over again. I’d go, ‘Okay, something different, something different.’ But there’s been nothing different out of WWE either. I’ve been pretty critical of WWE as well. I make more headlines when I’m critical of AEW, but I’m actually just as critical of WWE. But now I’m seeing that, and maybe just because I’m getting a little bit of an indication that something really good is coming, I’m overly excited. But if I’m right, then what the hell would I have to contribute? But they don’t need me. That discipline and that story structure and a commitment to the format and episodic television is the one thing that separated me from everybody else that was doing it for a long time. But if they’re figuring that out in WWE hell, they don’t need to spend the plane ticket on me.”
