Eric Bischoff didn't take too kindly to Tony Khan's comments about WCW.
On the "After 83 Weeks with Christy Olson," Bischoff scoffed at Khan's comments on what not to do with AEW and learning lessons from WCW, saying that Khan has only been involved in pro wrestling for a very short period of time.
“That’s an interesting thing for Mr. Khan to say. He’s been in the professional wrestling business for, what time is it? It’s about a cup of coffee, I think. I think [his] coffee could still be warm at this point. So far he’s spent from what I’ve heard, I don’t know if it’s accurate or not, I want to make sure I say that, somewhere between thirty and fifty million dollars to prove that he could be competitive with WWE’s developmental territory," Bischoff said.
Bischoff then old Khan to come talk to him in a couple of years when AEW has done something unique and dominated cable ratings for a long time.
"Call me in a couple years and tell me what you’ve done that’s really unique. Call me in a couple years and let me know how you’ve changed the industry. Call me in a couple years when your show is one of the top, if not the top original piece of programming on the TNT network. Call me in a couple years when you’re number two, number three, number four in all of cable programming for the night in primetime, and then let’s talk about it. But until then, hmm, I’ll just another cup of coffee and see what happens," Bischoff said.
