Eric Bischoff served as the executive director of SmackDown for a period last year. Now, he has revealed that he and other folks backstage would watch AEW Dynamite.
“I do want to say this, one of the things that I think has distinguished [AEW] from anybody else, even when I was with WWE last year, I sat down and watched both shows side-by-side and I was working with WWE at the time and I was watching it in a writer’s conference room with a bunch of other writers.”
Bischoff also discussed how he thinks AEW is handling their presentation much better than WWE right now.
“One of the first things that I noticed was that [AEW] is handling the production so much better. When I watched the show during COVID, the way they’re shooting the show, it’s tighter, [they] embrace the venue instead of camouflaging it. Somebody asked, ‘What did you think?’ I told him what I thought. [AEW] feels more like live TV and feels gritty enough to convince me it’s live. It feels gritty enough to feel like it’s live.”
Fight for the Fallen will be taking place on July 15. Jon Moxley will defend the AEW World Championship in the main event against Brian Cage.
