Young Bucks Fire Back at WWE Legend for His Comments on AEW President Tony Khan

Published 10/20/2021, 8:01 AM EDT


Former AEW tag team champions, Young Bucks, responded to a WWE Legend. WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff shared his thoughts about the current state of wrestling. Eric has been in the shoes of Tony Kahn, and perhaps he understands it better than anyone what it is like to go head-to-head with WWE.

In his recent podcast, he shared his thoughts about the ongoing feud and how Tony Khan should manage his business. He advised the young entrepreneur to focus solely on producing the best product and ignore everything else. Eric didn’t like Tony’s comments about AEW replicating the same amount of competition as Eric’s WCW did back in the days. Mainly, because AEW doesn’t go head-to-head with WWE like WCW did during the Monday Night Wars.

He said, “If Tony [Khan] were to call me and ask for any advice, here’s what it would be — ‘shut up and wrestle, dude’. Just put out the best product you can and you’ve proven you can. Focus on that. Now this is weird coming from me, right? The guy who challenged Vince McMahon. The guy who gave away their finishes. But here’s the difference. I was actually competing with him. I was going head-to-head. Real head-to-head. Like, my show started the same time his show started each and every week.”

AEW has been consistently producing impressive wrestling shows and memorable PPVs. The promotion is catering to the hardcore fanbase of the world with the age group being 18-49. Thus far, things have been going quite well for the young promotion and it would be interesting to see how it holds up in the next five years.
