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 latest episode of his 83 Weeks podcast, Bischoff compared Goldberg to Stone Cold Steve Austin: “You know, I mean I can understand why fans and Bruce [Prichard] would feel that way. And you know, some of that is very obvious, but I can also say Bill Goldberg looked the way Bill Goldberg looked the first day I talked to him before he even joined WCW.
Now, maybe Bill Goldberg had a Steve Austin fetish, and you know, was trying to shape and frame himself to walk around Atlanta looking like Bill Goldberg [likely meant to say Steve Austin]. But every image I’ve ever seen of Bill Goldberg, even when he was playing in the NFL, he kind of looked the same way. So I think a lot of that is inherent, just coincidental I should say”.
