WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff has made a number of appearances for AEW over the last year. However, he does still have criticisms of the product, saying they feel “too indie”.
“I think that’s a criticism that’s fair. That’s not even a criticism, that’s an observation. By the way, if doing so, if AEW knowingly, intentionally, by design, is writing and producing their shows 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. 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.”
Bischoff also noted that he agrees with the thought of AEW being “too indie”, saying they cater to the loud minority of fans.
“I personally, feel that the show does cater to the smallest but loudest percentage of the audience. (By loudest I mean vocal on social media) And does have a little bit too much of an Indie feel to it. That’s not a criticism, It’s a distinction.”
Eric Bischoff has appeared in multiple segments for AEW in the past. Most of these segments have been the worked press conference angles Chris Jericho worked with Orange Cassidy and MJF.
