Eric Bischoff On WWE Not Having Long Term Storytelling

On the latest episode of the 83 Weeks Podcast, Eric Bischoff talked about the current state of wrestling and how he believes no company sets plans months in advance. Having worked for WWE in 2019 as the Director of SmackDown, Bischoff said he definitely knows WWE doesn’t have plans many months in advance, and assumes AEW also doesn’t.

“I’ll be honest, I’m not sure that anybody really has, at this point in time, a three or six month story locked in,” Bischoff mentioned. “I know when I was in WWE last, two or three years ago, that was definitely not the case, it was more week-to-week no matter what anybody said. I don’t know what it’s like in AEW because I’m not there, I’m not doing it but as recently as 24 months ago I was in the thick of it in WWE. There were no three and six months storylines locked in, I can assure you of that. Maybe that’s changed, hopefully it has and I think you need to have a good plan, a three month plan, a six month plan, if you can have a year great.

“But you also have to be flexible enough and spend enough time reading the audience, not the ratings, not the quarter hours. That doesn’t tell you sh**, that tells you what history is, that doesn’t tell you what the audience is thinking or feeling and there’s only one way to know that and that is to be out there with the audience. I hope that there are three and six month plans out there and if there are, hopefully people are paying attention to the crowd reaction as well.”
