Eric Bischoff has stayed active in the wrestling business even after the folding of WCW and the former WCW President has worked backstage roles for different promotions, including a couple of runs with WWE.
His first run with the company came in the early 2000s, a time which many consider to be the peak of Triple H‘s in-ring career. On the latest episode of his 83 Weeks podcast, the former WCW official talked about Triple H‘s reign in detail.
“So here is the infamous Triple H entrance that never changed, whether he was a heel or a babyface, I f–king hate it. I hate it. I mean, if you’re going to be a heel, damn it, be a heel! Don’t be a hero. Don’t come out there like someone doing a Marvel audition for the next Thor movie. If you’re a heel, you’re a heel. Jesus Christ.”
Bischoff continued the explanation saying that the reason Triple H never got heat from fans as a heel was because he never really wanted to be one:
“And you wonder why he never really got any heat, because he wasn’t really a heel, he didn’t want to be a heel. He’d wrestle like a heel. He would do the chicken s–t things that were requisite to be a heel within the body of a match, but the character would never change. He’s out there spitting his water, and oh my God.”
