Eric Bischoff pulls no punches when talking about the current state of WWE.
Eric Bischoff will forever be known as the president of WCW during the Monday Night Wars but he has also been a very fondly remembered WWE character as the general manager of Monday Night RAW from 2002 to 2006 and most recently, he was the guest moderator on AEW Dynamite in the debate between Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy.
Last July, Eric Bischoff was the first person to ever be given the position of WWE SmackDown Executive Director. His run ended shortly into Friday Night SmackDown’s current run on the FOX Network.
Speaking with Sportskeeda, Eric Bischoff revealed that he personally thinks WWE storylines “suck.”
"Storylines suck right now, they suck,” said Eric. “Storylines are getting worse and worse. This the one thing that I feel adamant about. You look at what WWE did at SmackDown (at) ThunderDome over the weekend. Such a phenomenal job from a production point of view.”
He continued, "I knew that WWE would knock the ThunderDome concept out of the park. Better than anybody, including the NBA. I knew they would - because they're so good at that. What they're not good at is basic fundamental storytelling. They're just not. I love them and I have many friends there, who I love dearly. It doesn't change the fact that their storyline, the architecture, their approach to stories, their discipline with stories, sucks. Until somebody comes along and takes an honest look at storytelling and the structure of storytelling and the formulas that are used, it's going to be hit or miss forever."
Eric Bischoff is still taking part in a podcast every Monday called "83 Weeks." On the podcast, he looks back at his successful run at the top of WCW and provides Insider knowledge that only he could have as the man who is at the helm of the #2 promotion in the 90s.
