Eric Bischoff Doesn't See A Problem With Working Fans

Contrary to a report from WWE, Braun Strowman isn't expected to be out for six months. Eric Bischoff doesn't see a problem in what WWE did, though.

On his latest Bischoff on Wrestling Podcast, Bischoff spoke about the situation, and said it was fine for WWE to fib a little in regards to such things.

“Is it ok to work an audience? Yes,” Bischoff said. “Is it ok to just come out and knowingly lie to them? Eh, hard to really delineate between a good work and a lie. Let’s look at what the product is. It’s not sports. People are not betting on it and if they are they shouldn’t be. It’s not a sport it’s a story, it’s fiction and in my opinion… is it ok to manipulate perception in order to achieve an ultimate goal within the context of this artform? My answer is a definitive hell yes!"
