Former WCW Broadcaster On Why He Stopped Partying With Ric Flair

On the latest episode of Ross Report podcast, Jim Ross conducted an interview with former WCW broadcaster Tony Schiavone who opened up about his time wrestling - something which he rarely does these days. He talked about his experience working with Eric Bischoff and why he stopped partying with Ric Flair.

Schiavone explained that WCW Executive Vice President Jim Herd brought in Bischoff to upset Ross and himself, a story which Ross backed up. He also revealed Bischoff told Schiavone to lose weight.

"One time Bischoff brought me in and he said, 'are you getting fat?' I said, 'I've always been fat, Eric'," Schiavone recalled. "And he said, 'well, lose some weight.' I said, 'okay.' So I had to think, 'man, if my weight is dragging down our numbers, then there's something wrong with us, buddy.'"

Schiavone also revealed that he got tired of going to parties with Ric Flair because, at the end of the night, "[Flair] would take his pants off and show everybody his thing."

Schiavone said Flair would never drink as much as he appeared to drink.

"He had a gimmick," Schiavone claimed. "He poured the drinks out - everybody thought that he could out drink anybody, but the fact is everybody else would get drunk, but he wasn't."
