Eric Bischoff, the former WCW President recently spoke about Vince McMahon’s recent interview on the Pat McAfee Show. It was a one and a half-hour interview. According to Eric, he learned more about Vince McMahon during that interview than he did while working for him for nearly 2 decades.
“I’ve known Vince for [20 years]. Before that, I knew of him from a competitive perspective, but having face-to-face worked with him, having been in the ring with him, creatively, spent a cup of coffee there with him in 2019 and I was with him a lot, way more than I wanted to be,” Eric Bischoff said.
“Vince McMahon has an electromagnetic force that surrounds him. That electromagnetic force is at such a high frequency, 24 hours a day that you can’t get through it. “It’s very difficult to see the real Vince McMahon through this electromagnetic vail that lives with him.
And I saw more glimpses of the Vince McMahon that I wish I had gotten to know during that Pat McAfee interview than I did during the combined times I spent with Vince McMahon over the past two decades. So hats off to Pat McAfee, amazing job and I enjoyed the hell out of it”.

He then spoke about the massive hate that the WWE is getting online. He believes that it is a result of AEW and the stars that joined AEW after quitting the WWE.
“Why is that? There’s no one reason for it,” Eric Bischoff said. “You look at the haters, people bashing WWE and you’re talking about the internet wrestling community, and that’s the nature of social media.
Not just the WWE or wrestling in general, the nature of social media is to be contrarian, to hate, and to be negative. So you’ve got that and now you’ve got WWE, it’s a $5 billion global wrestling company.
We like to be on the journey and watch people make it to the top, and we also enjoy watching them crash and burn, only hoping that there will be a resurrection. It’s the ride that people walk, you can’t wait to see people become successful and you can’t wait to see them fall. That’s true in wrestling, probably even more so”.
