Eric Bischoff Says The Young Bucks Storyline With Sting And Darby Allin Has No Essence

WWE Hall of Famer and former WCW President Eric Bischoff took to an episode of his 83 Weeks podcast, where he talked about a number of topics including how he thinks the current storyline between The Young Bucks vs. “The Icon” Sting and Darby Allin in AEW has no essence and is not compelling enough.

Bischoff said, “There’s just no story there, it’s an excuse for a story. There was not an inciting incident, not a compelling — that’s a keyword. People say, ‘Oh, there’s such great story in AEW,’ no there’s not. There are excuses for matches, there are angles that are used as an inciting moment to create an excuse for matches going forward, but there’s no art to any of these stories.”

He also talked about how he agrees that the Young Bucks are ideal candidates for Sting’s final match, but there needs to be a believable story.

“They’re taking on this role to support the fact that Sting wants to have a match with them.I 100% agree that The Young Bucks are ideal candidates for that role. But it’s incumbent upon creative to make that heel turn, to make the fact that now The Young Bucks are heels, you have to make that believable there has to be a reason for it creatively that the audience can wrap their heads around and invest in.”
