He's back...and better than ever.
To be completely honest, until a week or so ago I had no idea this existed. I was looking for different interviews Eric had participated in with Ric Flair, Steve Austin, etc. and stumbled upon this.
I was under the impression Eric was done with wrestling except for his stint in TNA. Once he was rolling with his production company, I thought he was only looking at his history as just that; History.
Growing up in the 90's, I was a WCW fan, through all of the ups and downs, and I'll admit that I felt pretty sad the night Vince McMahon was the first segment on Nitro.
The funny thing is that when I was a little older, and thought I understood the business better, I completely hated Eric (as his character) on Raw. He has a way of making you hate him. Even knowing that the business was a work, I could still get worked up over him.
Looking back, I miss seeing him on TV and now really enjoy looking him up on the WWE Network.
Aside from the rambling above, I enjoy listening to these episodes. It's nice to see Eric still has a connection to his fans. Nick can get under his skin and you get to hear bits of his inner heel come out in beautiful fashion.
I believe Eric does these over Skype, which is why I wish there was a video feed. He's a handsome son of a gun!
I'M A BISCHOFF GUY.
