Eric Bischoff On Relationship With AEW's Tony Khan: "Evidently, He's A Little P*ssed Off"
The two have exchanged words through interviews
Eric Bischoff has opened up on the consequences of comments made by both himself and Tony Khan, saying the AEW President is 'a little p*ssed off' with him.
Bischoff and Khan have exchanged words through different interviews and media appearances, stemming from Khan's criticisms of what he perceived to be WCW's failures back in the 1990s.
Bischoff has since pointed his opinion that Khan should 'shut up' and let his wrestling show do the talking, and notes he has since tried to call Khan, only to not hear back from the AEW boss.
Speaking to CBS Sports, Bischoff said: "We were friendly and cordial. Mutual respect there. All that good stuff. It wasn't until recently, I was asked a question and I responded and it caused, I'm guessing, hard feelings from Tony.
"I tried to call Tony and he didn't call me back. Someone told me, who Tony was complaining to, about how upset he was about the things that I said. He said, 'Hey, why don't you give Tony a call?' I said, 'Sure! I'm not mad at Tony.'
"I don't carry grudges. It doesn't change the way I feel about Tony, I just had to express my opinion and react to something Tony actually said that involved me and I took as being disrespectful of my accomplishments and even more disrespectful, and quite frankly, ignorant, with relation to the comment he made about Ted Turner. That's what I reacted to. But I wasn't angry with Tony.
"When my friend said to give him a call, I thought, 'alright, I'll give him a call.' I left a message and I haven't heard back so, evidently, he's a little p*ssed off. But that's OK."
