WWE recently announced that Eric Bischoff will be inducted in the Hall of Fame this year and he recently got congratulated by Triple H on social media. Eric Bischoff is the former WCW President, and he was the only person in history that nearly beat WWE.
He was the person that led WCW during the Monday Night Wars. WCW did not beat WWE during the Monday Night Wars, and eventually, all popular WCW stars joined WWE.
Eric Bischoff Responds to Being Inducted in WWE Hall of Fame 2021
Eric Bischoff also joined WWE and he spent most of his career on WWE TV as a heel general manager.
He was actually the general manager of RAW. He was also a few years ago hired by WWE to serve as the Smackdown Executive Director. He only stayed for a few months before quitting the wrestling business altogether. This is what Triple H said: “@EBischoff has done so much for this industry both in front of and behind the camera, creating some of its biggest characters and events.
Now, it’s time to take his place in the #WWEHOF! Congratulations Eric!!”. Bischoff responded and wrote, “Thank you @TripleH. It’s been a hell of a ride”. Not many people actually expected Bischoff out of all people to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame especially when we recall that Bischoff and WWE were bitter enemies at one time.
However, Vince McMahon is known to be extremely forgiving and even continued business relationships with people that spoke against him on TV. Bischoff himself was probably not expecting this. “Just..wow. Overwhelmed with so many great people here.
I try to thank those with so many kind words, but today it’s going to be hard to keep up. If I fail to thank you individually, just know how much this means to me and my family. A sincere thank you to each of you,” Bischoff wrote.
Eric Bischoff’s last appearance for a major wrestling promotion was during the Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy Feud. He was a moderator for the debate that took place between them. Bischoff has since then stayed extremely quiet and does not show up at any wrestling event. He does appear in various podcasts including his own where he speaks about a lot of wrestling related stuff.
