Eric Bischoff To Be Inducted Into The WWE Hall Of Fame
He's the second name confirmed for the Class of 2021
Eric Bischoff has become the second person to be announced as an inductee into the WWE Hall Of Fame Class of 2021.
Bischoff was surprised with the news on the most recent episode of WWE After The Bell and joins Molly Holly in the 2021 Class.
Bischoff began his professional wrestling career in the late 1980s with the AWA, initially working in sales but making the move to becoming an on-air talent. In 1991, he joined World Championship Wrestling and called the action for WCW's weekly television shows.
By the middle of the decade, Bischoff was WCW's executive producer and helped bring Hulk Hogan and a host of other then-WWF talent to the company, kickstarting what would eventually become known as the 'Monday Night Wars'.
After WWE brought WCW in 2001, Bischoff shocked the world by joining WWE as an on-air talent, serving as Raw's general manager until the end of 2005. Most recently, he had a short-spell as the executive producer for Smackdown.
WWE will induct both the 2020 and 2021 Classes into the Hall Of Fame on Tuesday 6 April in a ceremony that will be viewable on Peacock in the United States and on the WWE Network across the rest of the world.
