AEW Name Claims WWE Hall Of Famer Wanted Violent End For Vince McMahon WWE

An AEW name has claimed that a WWE Hall of Famer voiced an extremely violent intent towards Vince McMahon.

Tony Schiavone discussed the incident on What Happened When on the recent episode that covered the night that WWE Raw beat WCW Nitro after the legendary 83-week run.

Reflecting on the challenges of a three-hour wrestling show, Schiavone revealed that it took a toll on his voice and that “none” of the WCW talent liked that length of a wrestling show.

The length of the show wasn’t the only thing that was controversial, with Schiavone recalling a disturbing statement made by WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff, saying:

“I remember it like it was yesterday.

“Eric had a meeting in catering with everybody, and said these words: ‘I will not rest until I’ve driven a stake through the heart of Vince McMahon.’

“I don’t know if he remembers that or even acknowledges that he said that, but there’s no doubt in my mind he said it.”

Bischoff has also recently credited Sean Waltman, who jumped from WWE to WCW and back again, as pivotal in Vince McMahon’s company winning the Monday Night Wars.

Eric Bischoff was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2021.

Following the demise of WCW, which would be bought by WWE in March 2001, Bischoff has worked with WWE on a number of occasions.
