Eric Bischoff Says He Is “Retired” From An On-Air Role In Wrestling

Eric Bischoff was asked on Twitter when he will be returning to an on-air role in wrestling. Eric responded by saying it is not going to happen and he is officially retired. Below are the tweets:

Eric was interviewed over a month ago where he said he won’t be in TNA Wrestling much longer. Eric’s role in the business right now is to help and grow the writers and bookers.

    If this is true, and I have no reason to believe it isn’t, then I have to say that I am surprised. I always have expected a comeback, considering the fact that EB’s send-off in TNA was in a portapotty. But at least EB is trying to grow the Creative Department.

    That’s cool, he’s not missed in the least. Easily the most overrated wrestling promoter ever.

      I would say Paul Heyman.

      • Alex Barie is overrated

        Go away.

    Thank goodness! Now if they would just take away 90% of Hulk Hogan’s tv time, maybe TNA/Impact wrestling would get somewhere!

    Bishoff please don’t toy with my emotions! Don’t get my hopes up man! You better be for real! Is it just me or does anybody else not miss him at all since he’s been gone from TV?

    Eric Bischoff wants to be involved in wrestling forever only because he can’t get work anywhere else. The only reason he doesn’t want an on air role is that he’s scared fans will chant 609.

      What’s the story of the 609 chant?

    I like him on tv, upsets me I won’t be seeing him anymore
