On a recent episode of his podcast, Eric Bischoff gave his honest opinion on the upcoming Flag Match between John Cena and Rusev at the Battleground PPV on July 23rd.
In case you missed it, you can watch the match being made last week on SmackDown in the YouTube video above, and below, you can see a commercial for the match that ran on RAW two nights ago.
If you aren't super excited for John Cena to make his return in an elaborate one on one game of Capture The Flag, don't worry, you're not alone.
Eric Bischoff hates it. He just hates it.
He haaaaaaaates it.
He hates it.
“I hate it. I just hate it. I haaaate it. I hate it. God, whose idea was that? Vince McMahon, if you are listening to this or someone that works for you is listening to this re-think that. That is just… yuck. My teeth hurt just listening to you talk about this…what’s a Flag Match?! What the hell is a Flag Match?! It’s like it’s been around for a thousand years and everybody knows what a Flag Match is. So, I am going to take your flag? Or, you’re going to take my flag? I am sorry… do not care. Boring.
"Here is what I do believe now once I take off my cynical hat. If you want to build up a story, create emotion, build anticipation, have a sense of reality, give yourself an element of surprise and wrap it all in some great action you’ve got to be a little believable. The stakes have to be a little relatable. What are the stakes?! You are going to grab my flag? Huh? You are grabbing my flag? That’s what I am going to get pissed off about and fight my heart out about? You’re going to grab my flag. I am sorry. I am sleeping through that one.”
Gosh, Eric. Tell us how you REALLY feel.
