According to Dave Meltzer, Eric Bischoff will not be involved in the creative process for Smackdown. When Smackdown moves from USA to FOX in October, Bischoff will interact with the various departments in the company and FOX.

Another interesting thing to note, Appearntly Vince expained to investers the reason rateings were down was because superstars like Roman Reigns was injured, so when rateings didnt improve after roman and others came back, Vinces plan was to bring in Heyman and Bischoff, so he could focus on that rather then rateings being low.

Interesting however both have the same job title, but their actual jobs are quite different.

I feel like this is disinformation someone sold to Meltzer because if Meltzer thinks that Eric is running Smackdown he will automatically just shit on the show because he doesnt like Bischoff

FRANKLY...it doesn't matter WHO runs RAW & SDL...

It only matters if the shows actually get better as
far as the storytelling & continuity.

And don't tell me storytelling & continuity don't matter...
because the MCU has made billions upon billions of
dollars focusing on just that.

And don't tell me the WWE is different from the MCU
because its wrestling...because apparently its not
wrestling...its sports entertainment.

No Dave Meltzer is clearly a biased journalist. All journalists are, look at any media outlet. Meltzer knows that him trashing WWE and putting over Japanese Wrestling or AEW is good for his business because thats what his audience wants. WWE knows this and i think would purposely leak out that Eric Bischoff isnt running creative to him so that he wont bury Smackdown every week.

And what does the MCU have to do with this? Disney makes billions of dollars and churn out cookie cutter films. Who cares? They go right ahead and fuck Star Wars up too while theyre at it...

The only problem with that is he doesnt trash WWE as much as people say, yeah he doesnt like Bischoff but hes even mentioned before that he thinks Eric is a great on screen talent, when he was GM of Raw back in 2004 it was fantastic (Espacially the stuff he did with stone cold)

There have been plenty of times when he has said great things about Raw and Smackdown, (And NXT, he does talk good about them when they do good stuff, hes talked highly about Bray Wyatt and the 24/7 title stuff too.) and there have been tiems when hes said bad things about AEW (Like the pre shows) Though i cant recall anything bad about Japan, dave does love japan lol.

I don't personally don't care what Meltzer has to say...I don't
listen to the guy...and he doesn't understand how numbers
work.

6 Out of 5? What?!

Although maybe I SHOULD listen to him seeing as you hate
the guy so much. Anyone with the opposite opinions of you
sounds like a smart person to me.

And what does the MCU have to do with this?
Because its a high profitable ongoing story with a large cast
of characters who are each well developed & interesting in
their own way.

You know...what the WWE SHOULD be.

Instead of just Le$nar/Plank of Wood & then everyone else
below them.

Who cares?
The stockholders? I don't know...clearly you don't & that's fine...
but if you can't accept how highly profitable & entertaining the
MCU has been...then well...maybe you're beyond medication &
therapy at this point.

Its okay.

Its not your fault.

Ur definitely the type of mark Dave Meltzer would appreciate. The type of mark that shits on anything WWE will do and puts over any Japan or AEW thing. Total biased against WWE, and thats cool it comes with the territory when ur number 1.

We is doing long term storylines. This Lesnar/Rollns angle has been going for 6 months now?

WWEs stocks have nothing to do with the MCU and WWE is killin it on the market. Because they are a worldwide company that makes alot of money because they are the best wrestling company.

Yeah Meltzer is not a reliable source, he has been spreading bullshit people would feed him for so long as if it was news.
Its probably worth mentioning, and to play devils advocate here, his job is literately to report on these things, he does that thanks to the people in the company he talks to, so it is entirely possible his scources were just wrong or led him astray.

Afteral hes been doing this for what, 20+ 30+ years? if he wasnt reliable people wouldnt listen to him, if he was a liar he wouldnt have a job, that would be a deathwish considering what he does for a living.

it helps that people like Stone Cold and Chris Jericho respect the guy too.

I don't completely hate Meltzer, like you said he does his job and he's a smart man. It's just that he reports false informations as facts and mislead the public. He does have the respect of some wrestlers but a lot also hate him.
