Eric Bischoff: Women's MITB Rematch Is A 'Really Bad Idea'

Money in the Bank left a lot of people upset, especially at the way in which the first-ever Women's Money in the Bank match ended. Not only was it a non-clean finish but it was the one man who wasn't in the match in James Ellsworth that did all the hard work. A lot of fans responded by criticizing WWE for sending a dangerous message with that booking and the company responded by booking a rematch on next week's Smackdown Live. However, that didn't satisfy everyone either.

On a recent episode of his podcast, Eric Bischoff voiced his opinion that the Women's Money in the Bank rematch is a 'really bad idea.' He explains further:

I think it’s a bad move. It’s a mistake I’ve made in the past. Sometimes you learn from your mistakes. At least, sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t. When you build up to a big event on PPV and you build up the stakes and you build up the expectation and you basically deliver a screwed finish and then re-match it on free tv… it diminishes the long-term expectation of future big event matches on PPV when that happens. I think it’s a really bad idea. By the way, I’ve done it and the results were always negative.

Does Eric have a point? He makes reference to some of the finishes he booked in WCW in the 90s, particularly when it comes to the nWo and all the run-ins that plagued many of the PPV main events at that time.
