Eric Bischoff’s latest tenure in WWE did not last long at all. There were many reports regarding the reason why WWE released him, but now Bischoff himself has talked about the matter.
Bischoff spoke to Wrestling Inc, where he talked about the reports that he was brought in to facilitate WWE’s move to Fox. Here is what he said:
“I don’t know who said that. There were a lot of things written, so much of what you read in the dirtsheets at the time when I came into WWE, and subsequently, after getting into WWE. It’s just like nuclear horses—, so far off base. Nobody articulate that I was brought in to help manage the process with FOX. If that was true, somebody forgot to tell me.”
He was then asked what led to him getting released by WWE. He said it was a matter of having a different approach. Neither side is at fault for what happened.
“One of the things I learned is you not to be really, really passionate about making a commitment that big, and it was a big job. To be honest about it I think that my personality and the way I approach things creatively and the way I approach business didn’t fit their formula and I think that’s going to be one thing that I’ll be a little more careful about moving forward. Is to make sure the opportunity and personalities kind of match a little bit better than they did. That was no fault of theirs, they were very honest and very open about the opportunity when I took it. I thought it was going to be a great opportunity, and it just wasn’t.”
Bischoff is currently keeping himself busy with his podcast and other ventures.
