Eric Bischoff criticizes modern wrestling

WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff is certainly one of the most important veterans in the history of professional wrestling. For about 10 years, Bischoff was an important member of the WCW and in 2002 he moved to the rival of that time, the WWE, where he held the same role he held in the old WCW, or the unscrupulous General Manager (therefore Heel, ed).

Thanks to his status as a veteran of this business, his opinion is heard and shared by the majority of fans, who agree with the thoughts of the former General Manager of RAW.

During an interview with Fightful, Eric Bischoff commented on what modern professional wrestling offers today: “From a certain point of view, modern wrestling gives you so much emphasis.

What has changed compared to the past? I think the emphasis on physical performance is much greater than in the past, which I think is really great. However, the character and the story suffered a lot. So there is so much emphasis on high flying, super athletic, 'Holy shit' or 'This is awesome', they want to try to get these ovations and all of that is very cool, I get it and it's fun.

But when you sacrifice the story and the characters to achieve this, I think it damages the product in the long run. I think that's one of the things wrestling is suffering from now. Now, do I get mad about it? I don't really care.

I just notice it. I'm not in the business anymore. So I don't have a fixed thought that keeps me awake at night, I'm not a hound ready to catch prey that makes a misstep. But what I see I share with the fans, and all of this is obvious to me."

Already in a podcast session of 83 Weeks Podcast, Bischoff had constructively criticized the various storylines of the AEW, which were too little articulated or even without a real logical sense. Eric Bischoff, his former boss, was recently asked the hardest person he worked with, and the Hall of Famer named Goldberg after careful deliberation.

"That's a tough one. I think on a consistent basis; it would have been Bill Goldberg. Not necessarily in a bad way. Just that, Bill was a very intense person. Emotional, and didn't have a lot of experience, and was pretty uncomfortable in a pro wrestling environment when he first got there.

So, as a result, you take someone who is an intense personality, a very intense personality, a bit of a perfectionist, who puts a lot of pressure on himself. But, also, lacking a lot of the comfort that comes with experience."
