Eric Bischoff thinks Tony Khan is taking up too much time on AEW programming.
Long-time professional wrestling executive, writer, producer, and on-screen talent, Eric Bischoff has never pulled any punches when criticizing AEW and company President, Tony Khan.
Eric Bischoff believes that Khan is simply showing himself too often on AEW programming and notes that Khan needs to “stop trying to put himself over,” as he explained on his ‘83 Weeks‘ podcast:
“Quit trying to get yourself over Tony. You’re not good on television. The less you see a red light in a camera, the better your product will be… He’s the CEO, head booker, whatever he is. He’s got about six titles, so yeah, he’s an important person. But, this is not about you, Tony, it’s about your talent. And the more you’re trying to get you over, the less your talent’s getting over. … Tony Khan does not need to be tweeting 15 times a day. Less is more, Tony. Make people want to hear from you, not turn away.”
Eric Bischoff himself was a notably large presence on WCW, WWE, and IMPACT Wrestling television, even when he was an executive in WCW and IMPACT. Khan last appeared on All Elite Wrestling programming on the April 18 episode of AEW Dynamite, where he formally announced the AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door pay-per-view.
Khan is currently getting prepared to host AEW’s latest pay-per-view offering in the form of All Out, which takes place, this Sunday night.
