During an appearance on After 83 Weeks with Christy Olson, Eric Bischoff clarified his recent statement that The Big Show has never become a star in professional wrestling.
Eric clarifies his statement that The Big Show has never become a star:
"I may have been wrong about this. But it’s what I believe then and it’s what I still believe now. It had nothing to do with Paul [White, aka The Big Show] or his ability. Paul is a phenomenal character, an amazing athlete…He’s as big as he is. So all the ingredients are there. But from a creative point of view, until you have to sit down and figure out a story that the audience will get into and believe and like, and when you have to do that with a guy as big as Paul you automatically eliminate a lot of the storytelling devices that you would normally use. How do you beat up a giant? How do you get sympathy"
Do you agree with Eric Bischoff?
