With Triple H now WWE’s Head of Creative, Eric Bischoff says he’s feeling excited and optimistic about the future of the company.
Since Vince McMahon’s retirement, WWE has experienced a seismic shift in its creative direction and approach.
While Stephanie McMahon has become Chairwoman and co-CEO alongside Nick Khan, it’s Triple H’s new role as Head of Creative which is giving a renewed sense of optimism to Superstars and fans alike.
Sharing in this positivity is WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff. In a new interview on Out of Character with Ryan Satin, he discussed his excitement at what the future could hold.
“Here’s what I’m excited about. I’m very, very optimistic. Now I’m not tight with Triple H. We get along. We can be together in a room, and it can be very, very pleasant and borderline fun. But we don’t hang. He doesn’t drink anyway, but if he did, we didn’t go out for drinks, none of that. We don’t chat, so I don’t know him personally. But I did get a chance to, for a very brief period of time, four months back in 2019, get a chance to work with him.
“Here’s what I think. I think Stephanie has been the head of creative under Vince. I think Triple H has been the head of creative under Vince. I think both of them know that as phenomenal of a process as Vince McMahon’s process was, and what it achieved over the last couple of decades, the fact that it’s a five billion dollar market-capped company with a global footprint speaks to Vince McMahon and his process.
“If I’m right, there is a whole lot of talented people that I did get to work with a lot, for a short period of time, that I have nothing but admiration, not just respect, that comes along with the admiration. So at the same time, you’ve got a new creative regime, although it came up under the mentorship of Vince McMahon, that’s a great thing, by the way. But they also see that things have to change,”
