ERIC BISCHOFF SAYS AEW ARE A LITTLE TOO INDIE FOR HIS LIKING

Recently on his 83 Weeks podcast Eric Bischoff discussed his opinions on AEW and how the product caters more for indie wrestling fans.

“If AEW knowingly and intentionally is writing and producing their show to appeal to that 10% of the audience that makes 90% of the noise and it’s working for them, go forth and f***ing prosper folks,” Bischoff said. “Keep doing what you’re doing if that’s your goal and it’s working. If you’re growing your audience by doing what you’re doing, continue to grow your audience.”

“I personally feel that the show does cater to the smallest but loudest percentage of the audience and does have a little bit too much of an indie feel to it. It’s not a criticism, it’s a distinction. There’s nothing wrong with Indie wrestling, there’s a lot of it that I really really enjoy.”

Bischoff went on to say that he wouldn’t do things the same way as AEW as he believes it won’t grow the product for a larger audience.

“In my humble opinion, AEW does need to balance with different types of storytelling and characters that have a bigger feel because right now, other than a handful of people, they kind of all feel the same,” Bischoff said. “Some are way better than others, some are spectacular, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, but for the most part, they all kind of feel the same.

“I think for wrestling to continue to grow and to grow the audience beyond what it currently is, you need to find those characters that appeal to a different affinity for the project. I’m not saying they all need to be like WWE characters, but there needs to be a good balance.”
