Eric Bischoff Discusses Potential WWE Comeback

Eric Bischoff, a figure with a rich and intricate history entwined with WWE, has traversed a convoluted path within the realms of professional wrestling. His saga with the wrestling juggernaut commenced in 2002 and saw him depart in 2007, only to resurface in 2016, culminating in his enshrinement into the hallowed Hall of Fame in 2021.

However, the sands of time have seen him drift from the confines of a full-time role within the company since his tenure as the executive director of SmackDown concluded in 2019. In a recent revelation during a livestream, Eric Bischoff was probed about the prospect of his triumphant return to the WWE fold. In response, he unveiled his cognisance of the changes the company has undergone since his departure. Bischoff disclosed that while he maintains ties with various personnel within WWE, he discerns a palpable disparity between the current corporate ethos and the milieu he once navigated.

I know enough people inside of WWE that I do stay in touch with, and everybody that I heard from has told me that it’s an entirely different environment.

His reluctance to uproot himself from his home was palpable, as he professed a profound affection for his current place where he lives. Despite sporadic forays into wrestling-related media and his swan song on WWE television screens in 2022, Bischoff’s disconnection from the active wrestling landscape has been palpable for quite some time.

I certainly wouldn’t be willing to move anywhere. I love where I live, I’ve worked my whole life to live in a place that millions of people from all over the world come to visit every summer, that’s how beautiful it is here and I love it here. So it’s hard for me to leave.

While Tony Khan lauded Eric Bischoff’s stewardship at the helm of WCW for sowing the seeds of their enterprise, it appears that their partnership has waned. Bischoff seems resigned to a state of contentment sans active involvement in the grappling realm. Bischoff, in his characteristic candour, articulated a willingness to collaborate with WWE should circumstances align. Nonetheless, he tempered expectations by alluding to his steadfast stance on relocation and the improbability of a substantive return to the WWE fold.

I’m always open-minded and certainly would love to work with WWE if it ever made sense, but I think that train has left the station, particularly given my circumstances and not being willing to move anywhere. So I’m not looking forward to that, I don’t anticipate it.
