The former WCW President stated that WWE knows about his appearances for Tony Khan’s promotion and does not object to it. He said:
“Absolutely not. I’m going to give you a guys a little secret. A long time ago I learned that with Vince it is better to have a conversation on the frontend of things like this, well in advance, just out of respect. Not out of necessity. I’m not under contract. I do things with them, we all know that, occasionally. Throughout the year, I’ll do different things with them,” said Bischoff.
Bischoff also revealed that he recently entered into a merchandising agreement with WWE which further indicates that he has a strong relationship with the company. He said:
“I just entered into an agreement of sorts with them. It’s not for television, it’s basically a merchandising thing. I’m constantly in business with WWE and they know I make appearances in AEW, but I think early on I took the time to do the right thing and place that phone call, out of respect, and I haven’t had a question mark since – inducted into the Hall of Fame, after being on AEW,” said Bischoff.
Bischoff is not under WWE contract and appearing on AEW is not “a big deal” for and said that he will continue to work with them in the future as well.
