WWE Hall Of Famer ‘Wouldn’t Work’ For WWE Or AEW If Asked

WWE Hall Of Famer ‘Wouldn’t Work’ For WWE Or AEW If Asked WWE/AEW

WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff has made cameo appearances for both WWE and AEW television over the past few years, but has not had an active role in working in the wrestling business since 2019.

Bischoff was hired to be an ‘executive director’ of the SmackDown brand, but left his position just weeks later.

In a recent appearance on the Ariel Helwani Show, Bischoff spoke about potentially returning to WWE, saying that he would return if he was 20 years younger, but now he wouldn’t take the job.

He said:

“If I was 20 years younger, I’d [go back] in a heartbeat. If I get a call from my buddy Bruce [Prichard] and he goes, ‘Interested in coming back? I need one of your fingers.’ As long as I’m on my left hand and not right, I’d probably go for it. I loved my time, and can’t say enough about the quality of people that work in WWE.

“But, I’m 68 years old, and I live in a beautiful part of Wyoming — right outside Yellowstone National Park. It’s been my dream to live here since I was a little kid, and I worked my ass out throughout my life to have what I have now. At this point, I don’t want to be away for extended periods.”

When asked about potential work in AEW, Bischoff also explained that he wouldn’t want to work for Tony, due to him needing to be present and not work remotely.

He explained:

“Tony has a very, very generous heart. He’s a good human being. But the truth is, for me to have any sort of positive impact on the process, you have to be in it. You can’t do it remotely.

“If Tony calls me and offers me a million dollars to work via Zoom, I wouldn’t do it because I know it wouldn’t be fair. It won’t be successful.”
