Backstage News On Eric Bischoff’s Status, Why People Think He May Be Finished With TNA

As previously reported, TNA talents were told at Thursday’s backstage meeting that Eric Bischoff would be working from home going forward. Bischoff was not at Thursday’s tapings or last Sunday’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view. There are lots of people in TNA who expect to never see Bischoff in TNA again.

The new 24/7 campaign TNA is running is something that was pushed internally as far back as 2009. One of the ideas was to have one-hour weekly YouTube shows on the X Division and the Knockouts, leading to product interest and money generated from YouTube. There were lots of people pushing for the idea to be cleared and budgeted for but as soon as Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan were signed, the idea was shot down and went away. Hogan and Bischoff hated the concept, didn’t believe in it and were all about building up TV so they could compete with WWE.

The fact that TNA is now going with this concept and the fact that Jeff Jarrett is getting more involved and more power once again, a lot of people are thinking that this is the end of Bischoff in TNA.

    This would be a sound idea, you know, IF TNA had any knockouts right now.

    the knockouts.. ~EC3 and Dixie are the worst thing in TNA right now… Anderson coming back is brilliant but they are going in the wrong direction….

    but I think the AJ angle is good.. even though Dixie is involved it is a good thing putting a TNA original in the spotlight for a change… I mean don’t get me wrong…Jeff Hardy is my favourite…but I love TNA more than him and I am glad that there is an original on top for once…
