Eric Bischoff On Possibly Returning To WWE TV As An Authority Figure

Eric Bischoff worked for WWE as the General Manager of Raw for a long time and he was an on-screen authority figure for the company for almost 3 years.

Since Bischoff has continued his involvement with Pro Wrestling with his 83 Weeks podcast, many wonder if the former WCW President could return to WWE TV with a similar role somewhere down the line.

However, some recent comments from Eric made during an interview with Chris Van Vliet make it seem like the former Raw General Manager is not very optimistic about a long-term WWE return.

During the interview, he was asked about possibly returning to WWE for a regular on-screen role such as the General Manager and replying to it, Bischoff claimed that the ship has sailed:

“No. I think that that ship has sailed, brother. There might be (a massive pop) for a night or two but I’ve kind of been there and done that. With a character like a General Manager there’s only so much you could do creatively.”

Continuing on the topic, the former WCW Star explained how a General Manager’s role in a wrestling show is limited and you are trying to figure out new ways to do the same 15-20 things over and over again.
