There was nobody we sat back and tried to steal. While it's not like we've never heard Eric's side of the story it was interesting to hear straight from the man himself again since so much of what we know or think we know about him is from other sources. How anyone can justify what happened in Montreal, even after all these years, is completely beyond me. Same as I did some other great interviews that are 'in the can', I want to preserve history and show honor and respect to legends with this format, it's not about money.
Had to take a day off from work to take care of a sick child. Jericho would say the same thing in various interviews as well as in his books. Vince took many of Eric's ideas and put them on a larger stage. Above, in the video are the comments Russo made. I really enjoyed all of them! Bischoff, for his part, was a wonderful guest, open and seemingly honest and willing to discuss things in detail. We were hoping we were going to get in. So it's not like he has a stake in anything anymore.
Eric is a friend and I knew he would be a great interview. Would Bischoff have done the same thing as Vince in Montreal, though? Bischoff says nobody knew that it was going to happen.

Other topics include the debacle of Halloween Havoc, as well as the decision to make Kevin Nash the booker. Now if I recall right, and I could be wrong about some of this. Bur I want to discuss the Eric Bischoff interview here. When it comes to using Ted's money, Eric freely used Turner's checkbook to pull Vince's stars away from him.
Eric talks about how he first met Verne Gagne when he was on the amateur wrestling team in high school. Beyond that, hes a better interview than just about everybody. Eric admits that other than Goldberg and a small number of others, he did not organically create stars. But, Brad Siegel who was the boss and hated wrestling told him not to call him, as he didnt want to pay Hogan.

If they feel it's significant or unique to be up despite the rules. He told them no, and to never bring it up ever again. But since it was part of their company, they wanted to make it work and not lose money.
I have zero animosity to Mr Russo---I am getting old: The other point is that Eric made money on the interview-I know his pay and it was done for history and not for money. If the higher-ups at Turner were trying to sabotage the company by getting rid of Bischoff, then why would they bring in a guy like Russo, who, as Bischoff puts it, tricked these people into thinking he was responsible for the most profitable wrestling product of all time? The only person I tried was Pat Patterson, people kept telling me what a great finish guy he was and I knew looking at our product we needed someone with that depth of storytelling. Thanks to all who enjoyed. Mr Russo and I have both gotten older and hopefully wiser-would love him on a future show. Wasn't he essentially ousted from his empire? The same could be said for Bischoff. It is no secret that Mr Russo and I don't like each other, but that being said-I have no problem asking him on a show and letting him say whatever he wants.
