83 Weeks with Eric Bischoff Podcast
About This Show
Since 1984 every wrestling promoter has tried to best Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation unsuccessfully... except one, Eric Bischoff. Eric got his foot in the door with Ted Turner's organization as a "C-Team Announcer" and a few short years later, he was President of World Championship Wrestling. Eric signed Hulk Hogan, turned a profit for the company for the very first time, started Monday Night Nitro, created the nWo, and beat Vince McMahon's Monday Night RAW head-to-head in Monday Night Wars 83 consecutive times. 83 Weeks will take a deep dive into the highs and lows of Eric Bischoff's unparalleled successes in the wrestling business. Join Eric Bischoff and Conrad Thompson as they explore a new topic every Monday morning at 6AM Eastern!Read more »

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.
