AEW has been on a roll ever since the promotion came into being. Fans desperately needed an alternate option aside from WWE’s PG product. This new promotion once again gave hope to adult fans of professional wrestling, all thanks to Tony Khan. The billionaire grew up watching the old-school product that is no longer available.

Bischoff feels the promotion should focus on being authentic instead of taking jabs at rival promotions in WWE. He has again stirred the ongoing feud with AEW’s president, as he once again called him out.

Eric Bischoff fired back at Tony Khan on his recent podcast

AEW’s head recently provided a response to the former WWE legend and stated that it is just an act. Eric has been out of the limelight since forever, and this might be his way to get back into the business.

The era of WCW’s Monday night war with WWE is long gone and the modern-day business has changed greatly over the course of the past 2 decades. However, Eric still feels that the young promotion should stick to its guns and try to remain authentic and original.

” “Don’t lose that goodwill by trying to paint a picture that, in reality, is misleading because the context isn’t there. Don’t blow a good thing. You’ve got a great thing, Tony.

AEW’s rise to stardom has been nothing short of a Cinderella story. A mere bet with an analyst gave birth to the company, and it has now become a formidable opponent to WWE. Fans have been backing the promotion all the way, and it is something WCW never had.

However, Bischoff feels that constantly attacking WWE and talking about the minor half overlap is going to hurt their credibility. He believes Tony should instead focus on producing the best wrestling show he can with whatever resources he has at his disposal.
