Eric Bischoff has a history with Dennis Rodman.
The former WCW Executive Vice President, who brought the NBA legend in to join the nWo during the “Monday Night Wars” between WCW and WWE, spoke on his latest “83 Weeks” podcast about “The Worm” appearing in AEW.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the episode where he talks about this, as well as his thoughts on AEW ALL IN compared to WWE WrestleMania III.
On whether ALL IN could be looked back on as a major show like WrestleMania 3: “It all depends on what they do right forward. If they know, if they lose ground if. I mean, it can be. I don’t want to be negative. I think it absolutely can be. That opportunity certainly exists. But WrestleMania three became that moment because of what WrestleMania became afterward. Yes. So the real challenge now, is how many times have you heard me say creating momentum is the easy part? Maintaining it is the hard part. That is a perfect example right here. Do they create the momentum? I don’t want to say it was easy. Creating the momentum. For Wembley, it was one thing. Maintaining it and building upon it is an entirely different thing. And the jury’s out. We’ll see. I hope so.”
On AEW bringing in Dennis Rodman: “Yeah, I’ve always liked Dennis. I mean, anybody listening to this show knows how I feel about Dennis. He’s a good guy. I think he’s a smart guy. He can bring a lot to the table. I didn’t see it. I don’t know how it came off. I would imagine some people who had to work with Dennis backstage were kind of. Wondering about how to make this all work. But Dennis is a good guy. He’ll deliver when the light’s on. He’s smart. I think a lot of Dennis. I was happy for him. That’s how I felt. That was my reaction as it made me smile.”
