Eric Bischoff talks about tension with Tony Khan

Eric Bischoff talked comments from Tony Khan that had lead to some tension between the two them during the Ad Free Supershow Media Scrum this week.

“What changed the discourse between Tony Khan and I was that Tony felt, whatever he felt was necessary to come out and say that ‘Dynamite is where WCW was in 1996,’” Biscoff said. “Well come on. Is there anybody here that buys that? WCW was beating WWE at that time. WCW was an extremely profitable company at that time. WCW had a lot. WCW was promoting massive Pay-Per-Views at the time. Many of them. Not just one or two or three or four a year. You can’t compare WCW to AEW. But he felt like he’s got to try and get himself up to the outlet, which was fine. That part didn’t really bother me.

“What really bothered me was when Tony Khan said ‘well, if Ted Turner knew as much about booking as I do, WCW would’ve never failed.’ That pissed me the f-ck off. That was so disrespectful and I gave an honest response to an honest question and that honest response kind of, you know, created an opportunity for Tony to feel his need to respond, which I understand. I don’t hold it against him. But that’s where it kind of escalated.”
