If you read the article title and hoped for me to talk about Garrett Bischoff, you may leave now.
The Bischoff of topic is Eric.
Arguably one of pro wrestling history’s greatest minds, the man worked his way up from the corporate office to become the face of World Championship Wrestling (WCW), an organization that almost put Vince McMahon and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) out of business in the late 1990’s.
He first made an impact as a backstage interviewer and announcer in the American Wrestling Association (AWA), which allowed him to get a job for WCW, where he’d eventually change the wrestling world. After he positioned himself as Executive Vice President, he turned into a pivotal character and introduced the genius concept of television as he mixed the mainstream “New World Order” storyline with fast-paced ring action from international stars in Mexico. Before long, he’d be directly involved in the nWo storyline as their manager.
