Eric Bischoff: “I think that WWE TV needs to change”

Last updated

Former WCW President Eric Bischoff recently discussed why he believes that WWE programming needs to change as the company heads into 2022.

Speaking on the Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette podcast, Bischoff revealed why he feels that TV overall needs to change for the company.

‘I think TV needs to change, especially episodic TV that’s on 52 weeks a year, particularly when you’ve got the sheer volume,’ Bischoff began.

‘Five hours in prime time, two of those on a major network. It’s a lot of content, and that’s part of the challenge, I think. WWE has become a victim in many respects of its own success, massive, global success” Bischoff continued.

“But because they’re servicing that massive, global appetite, they’ve got to keep moving fast. They’ve got to move fast.

“I think there’s always an urgency when you’re trying to keep up with how TV audiences are changing, how the competitive landscape is changing” Bischoff added.

‘And when you’re faced with the sheer volume of content that WWE produces and the natural evolution of the audience and the entertainment that it searches for, it’s tough to actually get anything done.

“Because in order to effect a change and determine whether it’s a good or bad change, you have to give it time. It’s not like flipping a switch.

“You can’t walk into a dark room, flip on a switch and go, ’˜Oh, I can see everything now.’ Sometimes you got to let the audience adapt to the change in order to register whether it’s a good change or not” Easy E concluded.
