Eric Bischoff Discusses Vince McMahon's Business Mindset
Vince McMahon will always do what's best for business, according to Eric Bischoff.
Vince McMahon's return to the WWE board of directors (and re-election as chairman) have dominated wrestling headlines recently, as well as rumours of a potential sale of the company. On the 83 Weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff has weighed in with his opinion of McMahon's business mindset, stating:
"One of the things we know is that Vince McMahon makes decisions that all of us, at some time or another, were surprised at. Whether it was bringing me in, after years of competing against him and almost putting him out of business - and I had some pretty crappy things to say, I did some pretty crappy things. I was the enemy, I was the Antichrist. Had I walked into WWE headquarters back in 1997, I don’t think I would have walked out until I got hired. [Yet I became] one of the key figures on-camera for whatever it was, three or four years. Nobody thought that would happen, including me. Nobody thought that he’d bring back Ultimate Warrior. But this has been part of his public persona, is that he will do what’s best for the business - even if it’s distasteful as hell, even if it makes him throw up in his own mouth in his private time. If it’s best for business, that’s what he’s gonna do."
The latest news of WWE's backstage goings-on came via Fightful Select last night, revealing that Triple H held a talent meeting before Raw in which he emphasised still being CCO and head of creative.
