Eric Bischoff On Deathmatch Wrestling: "It's Just Gore And Blood For The Sake Of Gore And Blood"
Eazy E thinks the style is bad for the industry
Former WCW President Eric Bischoff isn't a fan of Deathmatch wrestling.
Bischoff spoke about the AEW: Dynamite match between Nick Gage and Chris Jericho on 83 Weeks and the former Raw General Manager revealed he believes Deathmatch wrestling is bad for the industry as a whole.
"I just don't think that kind of thing [works]. Number one, it doesn't interest me, that style of wrestling. I think it's bad for the industry in general, I think it appeals to such a small portion of the audience that a larger portion of the audience is turned off by it. Those guys that love that, we saw it the other night with [Jon] Moxley and whatever his name was [Lance Archer]. They were digging at each other with a fork. Alright, cool, whatever. For me, I won't watch that kind of stuff. Number one it's not entertaining, there's nothing magic about it," Bischoff said.
"There's no creativity in it, it's just gore and blood for the sake of gore and blood. I recognise that that's my subjective taste, they're not trying to appeal to me so I'm not criticising them being AEW for doing it. I'm just telling you how I feel in this case as someone who's been in the business for a minute and as a viewer. As a viewer, there's nothing there that makes me go 'Wow, how did they pull that off? Wow, that was really creative. That created an emotion in me that nobody has in a long time.'"
