Eric Bischoff is best known for serving as Executive Producer and later President of World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and subsequently, the on-screen General Manager of WWE's Raw brand. Bischoff has also worked with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) where he served as Executive Producer of Impact Wrestling.
With an amateur background in taekwondo, Bischoff also sporadically performed as an in-ring competitor, and is a former WCW Hardcore Champion. He wrote an autobiography, titled Controversy Creates Cash, which was released in 2006 under WWE Books.
During the last episode of 83 Weeks, Bischoff spoke about the Aces and Eights storyline in TNA: “That was — you know, and I hate to say this because it sounds like patting myself on the back — but that idea was all mine.
There was very little — everybody contributed. The talent contributed. You know, once you want something like that, you start laying scenes out and talking about dialogue and things like that, and everybody’s got an opinion.
And Bully certainly did. Ken Anderson did quite a bit. A lot of people did. But yeah, that — And it’s really interesting. Unfortunately, TNA was semi-dysfunctional at that point. But if you go back and break that storyline down and follow the arc of that storyline and what we did do to pay it off, it’s right at the top of the list in terms of the quality of the story and the way it was executed. I’m very proud of it. But yeah, definitely wanted to have a bigger blowoff."
