Former WCW President Eric Bischoff recently revealed his reaction to Vince McMahon stepping down as CEO of WWE.

Speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, Bischoff revealed that he was completely “dumbfounded” at the idea of McMahon stepping down.

‘I was dumbfounded. Shocked. I can’t imagine anybody felt any differently. Even though it appears to be very temporaneous and not a permanent situation, at least that’s not the way it’s presented or the way I read it, but nonetheless, it’s a big damn deal and it did shock me,’ Bischoff began.

‘I feel bad for a lot of people. I still have a lot of friends in WWE that I do care about a lot. Regardless of how this ends up, it’s going to adversely affect a lot of people” Bischoff added.

“How do you feel anything other than bad for people that you know and have affection for that are having to go through this? I feel bad for Bruce (Prichard).

“I sent Bruce a text Friday night during the show going, ’˜Brother, one hell of a ride.’ To be sitting in that seat, to be there in the eye of that fu**ing hurricane, man I feel for a lot of people” Eric Bischoff concluded.
