I remember you! There are a lot of people to remember in wrestling history and of course some of them are going to be bigger names than others. That is the case in any wrestling promotion, but sometimes someone’s reputation is strong enough to carry over to another company. It certainly is true of the Attitude Era and that was on display this week on a big show.
One of the biggest current feuds in AEW is Orange Cassidy vs. Chris Jericho. For some reason Jericho has become obsessed with destroying Cassidy once and for all but has not been able to put him away. It has kept going for a good while now, and this time around the big idea was a debate between the two. That involved a special moderator who was a wrestling legend in his own right.
This week on Dynamite, Eric Bischoff made his AEW debut as the moderator for the Cassidy vs. Jericho debate. Bischoff asked five questions and had the wrestlers give their response before ultimately declaring a winner. There is no indication that Bischoff will be making another appearance for AEW. Bischoff most recently worked as the Executive Director for SmackDown before being released from WWE last year.
It was quite the appearance. Check out Bischoff’s debut, and some of his better moments:
Opinion: This worked well for a one off as Bischoff is a great television performer, but I don’t need to see him every single week. Just let it be a nice cameo and move on. Thankfully AEW is the kind of company that might do just that and it helps a lot to have that status. Bischoff was fine for one night, but I don’t think I need to see him again after all the years he has spent on television before.
What did you think of the appearance? Should Bischoff stay around? Let us know in the comments below.
