Second Eric Bischoff Autobiography Announced

Eric Bischoff

Following the critical success of Controversy Creates Cash, Eric Bischoff has announced the upcoming release of his second autobiography, Grateful.

When you think of the greatest non-wrestlers from pro wrestling’s history, Eric Bischoff immediately springs to mind. The WWE Hall of Famer was pivotal to the success of WCW throughout the Monday Night Wars, most notably being central to the success of The nWo.

His November 2006 autobiography Controversy Creates Cash covers much of this topic, but a lot has happened in Bischoff’s career since that deserves to be talked about. That time will come with the impending publication of Grateful, the second autobiography of Eric Bischoff, which is scheduled to hit shelves on 11 November.

Written in collaboration with Guy Evans, the author of NITRO: The Incredible Rise and Inevitable Collapse of Ted Turner’s WCW, the book will cover aspects of Eric Bischoff’s career post-2006, including his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, his return to WWE, and the role he played in IMPACT Wrestling.

In a press release, Eric Bischoff explained the turbulent career he’s had over the last decade:

“Truthfully, over these past 15 years – while I’ve had some wonderful successes – I’ve had some spectacular failures, too. There have been some really difficult times for my family and I. In fact, far from being grateful, there were years in which I was frequently angry – and mostly angry at myself, by the way.

But here I am, and as of today…I’ve made a comeback. Not a complete comeback – but close. I’ve learned that it’s one thing to achieve success, but another thing to achieve it, lose it, and then achieve it again. I’m on my way – and Grateful tells that story in its entirety.”

Fans can pre-order Grateful right now from, priced at $54.95 for a hardcover edition and $34.95 for the paperback copy.
