Eric Bischoff Comments On Sting’s AEW Debut – “I’m In”

Eric Bischoff on Sting

Former WCW Executive Vice President Eric Bischoff has commented on Sting’s monumental AEW appearance from last night, responding to a fan who claims he said the company wasn’t innovating enough.

Bischoff, who worked with Sting the last time The Icon was on TNT, would speak of his excitement at the possibilities and potential of the story going forward.

“I’m excited about the possibilities with the addition of @Sting to the@AEW roster and the potential of the story going forward. So far, they’ve over delivered on one very important story element and have laid an intriguing foundation for another. I’m in.”

Eric Bischoff himself has also appeared on AEW television on two occasions this year, returning to TNT – the former home of WCW Nitro.

Immediately following Sting’s AEW debut, the company would confirm his official signing, stating that the WWE Hall of Famer has signed a full-time, multi-year deal with AEW’s CEO and GM Tony Khan commented, via the press release:

“The surprise introduction of Sting was a great way to celebrate our biggest episode of Dynamite yet. When AEW launched, I was ecstatic to bring wrestling back to TNT after a very long absence. Sting defeated the legendary Ric Flair in the final wrestling match to be shown on TNT for more than 18 years until the debut of Dynamite in 2019. Now, almost two decades later, it’s such a thrill to welcome Sting to AEW and bring him back home to TNT!”

Tune in to AEW DYNAMITE on TNT next week to see why Sting is joining the most boundless promotion in all of wrestling.
