Eric Bischoff Reveals He's In The Middle Of Lawsuit With TNA Wrestling
Posted By: WrestlingNewsSource.com on Aug 04, 2016
Main Event Radio recently interviewed former WCW President and Raw General Manager Eric Bischoff at Montreal Comic Con.
During the interview Bischoff was asked "What went wrong with TNA" to which he wasn't very forthcoming with a response, in fact, he said he couldn't say too much because he is in the middle of a lawsuit with them "I try to put them both out of my mind so I couldn’t tell you. No comment. I’m in the middle of a lawsuit with them so I can’t really comment."
When asked if he has anything positive memories to recall from his time in TNA he said "I don't have any"
Below are some further interview highlights:
On AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, and Bobby Roode now working in WWE:
"You name three guys who are probably the one bright spot of my time in that other organization. There are all 3 some of the most quality people as human beings and as professionals. I’m thrilled to death for AJ Styles as I am for Samoa Joe. I think Bobby Roode is probably one of the most under-estimated, highest potential talents that WWE could get their hands on so I’m thrilled to death for him. I won’t say that Samoa Joe is underrated because most people recognize what a special athlete he is, but if you get to know him on a personal level you cannot find a better person so I’m thrilled to death."
On if Son, Garrett still wrestles:
"He’s doing great. He’s not still wrestling. He transitioned out of wrestling when I did. He has a great career now, lives down in Florida, he’s married, and he’s doing well."
If he would ever return to WWE as a General Manager or for a one-time appearance:
"Highly doubtful. Because I haven’t gotten a call. And I’m a little busy; I’ve got stuff going on. Not to be coy or cute, I think that time has passed. I had a great time, I worked there for 5 years and it was one of the highlights of my career. Times change, people change. I think a character like mine I’d come back for a week or two or three but then after that people would get tired and say this is the ‘same old, same old’ kind of thing."
Is he done in wrestling?
"Never say never. If the right opportunity and by that I mean something that was exciting and felt fresh. Something that I believed that the fans would really appreciate and that I would have fun doing. I’d love to be back. Because I love the business and a lot of the people in it. I’ve spent a lot of time in the business, I’ve done a lot of things. It would take something pretty unique to get me excited. It’s really gratifying to see after all these years, and I’ve been in the business for 30 years, and after all of these years to see fans wearing nWo shirts and fans of WCW who still remember make me feel good."
