We have breaking news to report in the world of professional wrestling as former WCW President Eric Bischoff is set to make a big debut on AEW’s Dynamite this Wednesday night on TNT.
According to sources close to the situation, “Easy E” Eric Bischoff will make an appearance on WWE’s Wednesday night competitor AEW. This is all supposed to take place on next Wednesday’s taped Dynamite episode. This information came from spoilers from a source who was at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida when the show was taped.
It is being reported that the controversial Bischoff will be the special guest moderator for a debate segment between Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy. Having Bischoff on the screen should draw viewers with his presence in the wrestling business, and having him back on TNT the place where the original wrestling wars started is just perfect storytelling. I mean, could you even write a story with a twist like this?
What are the plans for Bischoff in AEW?
There are no more details on what the plans are for Bischoff concerning a possible AEW future if any at all. Bischoff recently was hired in the role of Executive Director of WWE Smackdown back in June of 2019 through October after the show had made its big debut on the Fox Network. However, Bischoff was released from his job after only a few months on October 15th. Bruce Pritchard replaced him in that role for Smackdown.
Next Week’s AEW Dynamite is loaded!
- Chris Jericho challenges Orange Cassidy with a special guest moderator.
- Matt Cardona and TNT Champion Cody vs. Alex Reynolds and John Silver of the Dark Order.
- MJF to give another entertaining State of the industry address.
- The Elite and FTR vs the Dark Order in 12-man action.
- AEW World Champion Jon Moxley defends his title against Darby Allin.
Is AEW trying to stick it to WWE?
Yes and no. Both companies have proven to be smart in their own strategies. I believe this could just be a coincidence by Tony Khan because, to be honest, Bischoff has not been in WWE for almost nearly a year now. But if your Bischoff as much as you respect Vince McMahon, would this not be a golden opportunity to stick it to your former employer. Think about the Eric Bischoff who was taking shots at Vince and his stars, the stars Vince thought he could trust and had in WWE until they made the move down south to work for Bischoff and WCW. The memories of the Monday Night Wars. Bischoff was the one man who could brag and say he defeated McMahon and WWE for 83 consecutive weeks. Let’s not forget about one of the greatest wrestling storylines ever in the NWO with Hogan turning heel and joining Hall and Nash. Bischoff even authored a bestselling book titled Controversy Creates Cash. So who better than to go against WWE than Easy E?
Here is another thing to think about, with the possibility of Eric Bischoff coming to AEW even if just this one time, if he feels the creative is right and he feels good about it, then he is going to do what is good for business. He is an entrepreneur as well as a businessman after all.
