WWE Hall Of Famer and the host of the 83 Weeks podcast Eric Bischoff has announced that he is to undergo surgery on his finger.
Former WCW President Eric Bischoff revealed on his 83 Weeks podcast [first available early and ad-free at AdFreeShows.com] that he is due to go under the knife to fix a nagging problem with his finger:
“I can’t extend my finger. This other one is getting the same thing. It’s called Dupuytren’s Contracture. What it is, is on the inside of my hand is a growth of tissue that forms on the tendon that controls your fingers. I had it on this hand. I had it operated on and you can see the scars. It’s common.”
“They’re going to go in, open that up, and cut that growth off the tendons so that I can put my hands in a glove because right now it’s so bad, I can’t put a glove on. I’ve been putting this off. I should have done this a year and a half ago to be honest. I put it off and put it off and it wasn’t a problem. Now all of a sudden it’s wintertime and I can’t put my hand in a glove and I’m like, ‘F*ck that. I’m going to go in and have it cut out.’”
Eric Bischoff, who many fans will remember from his run as Raw General Manager in the mid-2000s recently made an appearance on WWE television in a backstage segment with current WWE officials Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville.
Everyone at Inside The Ropes sends their best wishes to Eric Bischoff for a full and speedy recovery.
