Bischoff participated in a fan Q&A that was hosted by Christy Olson and during the Q&A, Bischoff stated that he will not be present at this Sunday's Extreme Rules pay-per-view in Philadelphia.

"No, I’ll be driving on Sunday. It’s going to take me five days, it’s like 2000 miles and I’ve got a couple stops I want to make [that'll make it] a longer wait. So I’ll probably be stuck on the Ohio Turnpike on Sunday." He said.

Bischoff was also asked if he's seeking career redemption with his new role in WWE and he responded by saying that his goal is to figure out a way to exceed everyone's expectations.

"What can I do to meet and exceed everybody’s expectations? That’s really the way I look at it. I’m really not looking at it within the context of anything else that’s ever happened before." He said.
