Eric Bischoff spoke about his recent appearance on AEW Dynamite on the latest episode of his 83 weeks podcast. Here is what he had to say.
How he changed some of the verbiage in his Town Hall spot, which Chris Jericho approved:
I took what had been prepared for me in the notes [and] I went, ‘Oh yeah. But if I changed it up this way, it won’t change the meaning of anything. It does the exact same thing. It just kind of makes it feel more tuned-in politically, based on the theme of that segment.’ So I went to Chris and I said, ‘hey, Chris, I got an idea.’ He goes, ‘Yeah, go ahead. That’s what you’re here for. Make it your own.’ I went ‘wow, that’s f***ing cool.’ That’s the way I like to work.
Praise for MJF:
It wasn’t until last night when I watched it, did I realize that I smartened up Chris, but I didn’t smarten up MJF. He had no idea that question was coming the way I posed it. He just hit that thing like a two-hundred pound softball, just splattered it, didn’t miss a beat… Everybody knows he’s a very talented guy and certainly he knows it. But I was so impressed with the way he didn’t even blink when I changed up the dialogue that he was expecting. That was really cool.
