Eric Bischoff Comments on AEW Signing Top Talents

Eric Bischoff is the former WCW President, and he spoke about AEW Signing Top Talents from all around the world including many former WWE wrestlers. On the 83 Weeks podcast, Eric spoke about this. According to Eric, AEW should not sign new talent if their viewership numbers are not increasing.

Eric Bischoff States That AEW Should Not Sign New Talent

“For his sake, I hope that happens. You want people in this industry to stay employed and prosper and to be successful at whatever levels they are able to achieve,” Bischoff mentioned.

“But what are you going to do with all that talent? ‘Let’s build the biggest roster in the history of wrestling?’ Is that the goal? Is that the end game? To be able to brag about how deep your talent roster is? If it is, I guess AEW is on its way to achieving that goal, but what do you do with that talent? “You look at the shows and let’s be honest about it — I’m not being critical, I like AEW and I want AEW to prosper.

But let’s be honest about where AEW is, they drew 872,000 viewers this past Wednesday night. That’s what they were doing a year ago. I’ve done shows with AEW that have done more than they did last Wednesday, and the talent roster is stacked with great talent, phenomenal talent but where’s the audience for it? It’s not working.

872,000 viewers on their A show? That’s not exciting. The numbers are the numbers, and this is a number AEW was doing a year ago, two years ago. It’s weird, and now you’re going to stack even more talent on top of it? What are you going to do with them?” According to some speculation, Johnny Gargano will join AEW as a full-time superstar.

Bischoff stated that he isn’t excited about seeing Johnny, and he doesn’t know about the popular NXT Superstar either. “If I did, I don’t remember them,” Eric Bischoff said. “Not a reflection on Johnny.

I doubt I did because I probably watched maybe 15 minutes of NXT. It’s just not my thing, there’s nothing about it that I find interesting or compelling. It’s a farm team, it’s Triple-A baseball and I’m not a big enough fan to enjoy watching the professional wrestling version of Triple-A baseball consistently.

If I hear about something going on, if there’s somebody I’m interested in, absolutely, I’ll drop in”.
