Twenty-four hours after his release from WWE, Eric Bischoff has been announced to appear at Starrcast IV.
During the first Starrcast, Eric participated in a Monday Night War debate with Bruce Prichard, the same man who, just yesterday, was announced as replacing Eric in WWE as the SmackDown Executive Director. There are no hard feelings between two long-time creative minds and both have exchanged well wishes on social media.
As of right now, this announcement only states that Eric will be appearing at the convention and there is no word on whether or not he will be participating in a stage show, although many fans will likely have questions for him regarding the most recent phase of his career in the wrestling industry.
Conrad Thompson, who organizes the convention and who co-hosts Eric’s 83 weeks podcast, reacted to the announcement on social media.
Well, this should be interesting... https://t.co/ElhcP68nXb— Conrad the Mortgage Guy (@HeyHeyItsConrad) October 16, 2019
Regardless of whether or not Eric participates in a stage show, with names like Jim and David Crockett, Sting, and even RoboCop, this particular convention is looking like quite the homage to WCW.
Starrcast IV will go down from November 7-10 in conjunction with the AEW Full Gear pay-per-view on November 9.
