Eric Bischoff Reveals that Tony Khan Has Not Answered His Voicemails
“We were friendly and cordial.
Mutual respect there, all that good stuff. It wasn’t until recently, I was asked a question and I responded and it caused, I’m guessing, hard feelings from Tony,” Bischoff said. “I tried to call Tony and he didn’t call me back.
Someone told me, who Tony was complaining to, about how upset he was about the things that I said. He said, ‘Hey, why don’t you give Tony a call?’ I said, ‘Sure! I’m not mad at Tony.' ” Bischoff stated that he does not carry a grudge against Tony Khan.
However, Tony has not responded to any voice mails that Eric has left him. “I don’t carry grudges. It doesn’t change the way I feel about Tony, I just had to express my opinion and react to something Tony actually said that involved me and I took as being disrespectful of my accomplishments and even more disrespectful, and quite frankly, ignorant, with relation to the comment he made about Ted Turner.
That’s what I reacted to,” Eric Bischoff explained. “But I wasn’t angry with Tony. When my friend said to give him a call, I thought, ‘alright, I’ll give him a call.’ I left a message and I haven’t heard back so, evidently, he’s a little pissed off.
But that’s OK”. Ever since becoming the AEW President, Tony Khan has appeared in many interviews. Tony Khan has sometimes been criticized in the past for talking too much on social media. He has also been criticized for some of the creative decisions that are taken in the AEW.
That being said, Tony Khan has managed to sign plenty of famous indie wrestlers and famous former WWE Wrestlers which has boosted AEW’s rating tremendously. Eric himself has made a few appearances in AEW several times.
