Backstage news on Bischoff and why he might be gone

Discussion in 'TNA iMPACT! (2011-2015)' started by Harley Quinn, Oct 27, 2013.

  1. As previously reported, TNA talents were told at Thursday’s backstage meeting that Eric Bischoff would be working from home going forward. Bischoff was not at Thursday’s tapings or last Sunday’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view. There are lots of people in TNA who expect to never see Bischoff in TNA again.

    The new 24/7 campaign TNA is running is something that was pushed internally as far back as 2009. One of the ideas was to have one-hour weekly YouTube shows on the X Division and the Knockouts, leading to product interest and money generated from YouTube. There were lots of people pushing for the idea to be cleared and budgeted for but as soon as Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan were signed, the idea was shot down and went away. Hogan and Bischoff hated the concept, didn’t believe in it and were all about building up TV so they could compete with WWE.

    The fact that TNA is now going with this concept and the fact that Jeff Jarrett is getting more involved and more power once again, a lot of people are thinking that this is the end of Bischoff in TNA.

  2. Youtube shows are a really good idea for TNA, especially with their subscription Youtube channel.
  3. The wrestling world is better without Eric Bischoff.
  4. I think he is a good on screen character, I just would not give him any power behind the scenes.

  5. This.

    IMO, he's one of the greatest non-wrestler heels in the history, if not the greatest (inB4 Heyman gets mentions).
  6. I'm glad to hear that Jeff Jarrett is regaining power. As for Bischoff,it's good he doesn't have any power any more. It's a shame TNA didn't put him on TV when they had him though,it would've been great if he got to play Dixie's current character.
