Eric Bischoff Comments On Possible WWE Return Under Triple H
Would Eric Bischoff return to WWE with Triple H now in charge?
Don't expect to see Eric Bischoff return to WWE, even with the recent regime change.
The former Raw General Manager was asked by a fan about a potential return during a recent edition of his 83 Weeks podcast, responding that his time in WWE has come and gone.
"Yeah, that ship has sailed. I'm really happy where I'm at. Not only happy where I'm at, like, I live in a beautiful place, I have a beautiful home, I'm in a part of the country that people all over the world travel to, to enjoy every year and I'm really grateful for that. But, more than that, I'm grateful for my peace of mind and I'm just at a stage in my life where I hate traveling. It's not that I don't want to be involved in the wrestling business".
Bischoff added that there's not enough money in the world to coax him into a return to professional wrestling.
The former Senior Vice President of WCW originally worked for WWE as an on-screen authority figure between 2002 and 2005, making sporadic appearances thereafter.
He was appointed Executive Director of the SmackDown brand in June 2019, but was replaced by Bruce Prichard in October.
Bischoff was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2021. His last WWE appearance was in a backstage segment with Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville on the January 21, 2022 episode of SmackDown.
