Former WWE Raw General Manager Eric Bischoff posted a blog today commenting on a few topical subjects.
Bischoff issued his thoughts on Waxman’s report regarding steroids in professiona wrestling. “The market will mandate that WWE clean up their act,” Bischoff wrote. “Advertising dollars determine who survives and who gets the ax in the world of television. No advertiser wants to be associated with a program or company that has the kind of record that WWE was piling up.”
Bischoff ripped Matt Hardy (as well as his brother Jeff) over his recent review of The Wrestler. “Matt, you are a friggin goof,” Bischoff wrote. “Lets set aside the fact that your brother is walking a ‘three strikes and you’re out” tight rope as a result of his drug abuse, and if internet “news” was accurate, suffered the loss of his home and property due to a fire because he was too irresponsible to insure it. Your recent recap of your “lifestyle” frames you as a candidate to the Jake Roberts Hall of Fame. Your suggestion that you and your generation are “smarter and more responsible” than previous generations of wrestlers makes me sick. You are a mid-card talent that should be grateful to even get a check every other week. Enjoy it while it lasts. And rather than looking down your nose at previous generations of professional wrestlers, donate a portion of your check to one of them and ask them to point out all the parallels between your current career path/lifestyle and theirs. It would be the smartest and most responsible thing you could do.”
