Eric Bischoff Says Goldberg Is The Most Difficult Person He’s Ever Worked With

Eric Bischoff has named Bill Goldberg as the person who was the most difficult to work with during his tenured career.

Speaking during a special Q&A episode of his 83 Weeks Podcast, Bischoff said:

“On a consistent basis it would’ve been Bill Goldberg. Not necessarily in a bad way, just that Bill was a very intense person, emotional and didn’t have a lot of experience and was pretty uncomfortable in a pro wrestling environment when he first got there. As a result, you take somebody who’s an intense personality, a very intense personality, a bit of a perfectionist who puts a lot of pressure on himself. Also, lacking a lot of the experience and comfort that comes with experience, you get a guy who’s a little hard to handle or sometimes a lot hard to handle. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, just a thing.”

Bischoff went on to discuss whether or not he feels as though CM Punk should turn heel on the back of his previous comments in which he stated Punk has s**t the bed since joining AEW.

“I don’t really have any thoughts on that. I didn’t watch Punk a lot in WWE because I just wasn’t watching WWE a lot in the period of time that he was there. Not as familiar with the peak of Punk’s WWE persona or character so I can’t really comment on it. I think what we all want as fans is to feel connected to a story and a character and generally the more intense that story or character is, the more appealing it becomes to the wrestling audience.

“I would agree that a level of intensity [is what Punk needs] but that could apply to just about anybody and any character so let’s just wait and see. Punk’s only been around now for a relatively brief time and I think I’ve mentioned, so far, not impressed. Not disappointed but not overly impressed either. The ratings would suggest the vast majority of people feel the way I do. Not pissed off, not elated, just waiting for something to happen so let’s see what happens.”
