Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar could find themselves in the ring again after a new conflict arose. Fans seem to be exhausted by events like this again, but Eric Bischoff told Strictly Business why this match could be great. “I’m digging it,” Bischoff said as quoted by Wrestling Inc.
“And yes, it’s the same two individuals, but it’s not the same two characters, and now with both titles at stake, and now that we haven’t seen it all play it out on TV prematurely in one way, shape or form, I’m actually more excited about it than I would’ve been if they’ve actually been working an angle for the last three weeks”.
Due to injuries, WWE didn’t have much time to create a story. “That’s not a lot of time to build a hot story,” he said. “It’s pretty hard to build a compelling story to replace a guy like Randy Orton with somebody just from out of the blue.
Five weeks is not a lot of time”. “Either situation is a Plan B, right? Plan B is never as good as Plan A, so either situation is less than what you want it to be,” he said.
Eric Bischoff on young talents facing Roman Reigns
It is little time for young talent to meet expectations and prepare.
“Guess what happens if he or she fails? Guess what happens if it doesn’t register? ‘Ehhh.’ That young talent that was getting a push has now got a little bit of a stigma, right? ‘Oh, we tried, we pushed him hard, we put him on PPV, put him in a match with Roman Reigns and it sh*t the bed.
Not because the talent wasn’t good enough, but because five weeks isn’t enough time to make the audience buy into it and believe it. So there’s always that risk. Risk is inherent in creative, right? There’s never one answer, and there’s 99 that can probably bite you in the ass,” said Eric Bischoff.
