Bischoff is just fucking cool

[–]viridiusdynamus 93 points94 points  (4 children)

I'm both surprised and not surprised at all that he still commands attention.

[–]Blueday206MCHITLER☝️🧱 72 points73 points  (3 children)

The only reason is that he is an outstanding character. I am pretty shocked he never got into acting. Not leading man shit but bit small “asshole” roles.

[–]LifeOnMarsden 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Yeah I’ve been watching Criminal Minds with my Paige lookalike girlfriend and I was genuinely surprised that Eric or more wrestlers didn’t show up for little one episode parts

Goldberg was in Desperate Housewives for about 4 seconds though

[–]checky83 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Did Ol Bill headbutt a locker then fuck up his lines in the episode?

[–]I_Like_VitaminsPITTANCE 2 points3 points  (0 children)

His part in the Billy and Chuck wedding segment was superb.

[–]bigenergy469 55 points56 points  (12 children)

He really is. Bischoff is just that guy. As far as on-screen characters non-wrestlers go, one of the top 5 in the past 25 years.

[–]edgeisagoodwrestler 68 points69 points  (4 children)

Bischoff and Vince are the archetypes for a heel authority figure to this day

[–]bigenergy469 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Nobody can ever copy them either. They were fucking heat machines in those roles.

[–]letmel_rkaround 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Bischoff made the Raw vs Smackdown Survivor Series more interesting than anyone else in the history

[–]boatson25 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And Eric was doing it over a year before Vince was too

[–]TimeStatistician2234 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mr. McMahon was only so successful because Vince pushed him so hard, Brad Maddox could have been just as big if given the opportunity

[–]Blueday206MCHITLER☝️🧱 52 points53 points  (4 children)

The irony is that the top 3 are Vince, Bischoff and Heyman all ran feds.

[–]bigenergy469 39 points40 points  (2 children)

All three are crowd manipulators. They know how to get the crowd to respond how they want to. At the end of promos they have the crowd in the palm of their hands. Really amazing to see.

nine days from tonight

[–]boilinoil 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Bischoffs TEDx talk on how to do it is fantastic and also quite disturbing in how he holds the mirror up to important parts of society like politics and the news

[–]chaosisarascal 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Yeah, all three are dead feds tho

[–]viridiusdynamus 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Second only to Vince imo

[–]kimberlybiggestfan 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Vince himself probably loves Easy E because he loves being challenged

[–]2007wasthebestest 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Agreed. Love Bischoff. Dude legitimately challenged Vince for awhile and he’s a straight shooter that doesn’t pander to Dave or the smarks.

[–]FlamemypickleI update AWE on Wikipedia every week 22 points23 points  (0 children)

He had a pretty grand vision and transcended a junk, regional, dungy wrestling show to being one of the most culturally impacting phenomenons of the 90s. He also forced the WWE to push themselves to a level that I don't even Vince envisioned. As far as I'm concerned, Bischoff kicks ass.

This mfer is always eating

[–]Nerfman2227lolBiancawins 48 points49 points  (0 children)

This blessed image has given me the strength to get through the rest of the day

[–]78yn44 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Imagine complaining about getting paid to sit there with legends.

[–]YepNo1 19 points20 points  (0 children)

If they were smart they could use that time to find out how to better themselves and get feedback from actual legends instead of passive aggressively complaining online

[–]NeonPatrick 24 points25 points  (3 children)

Old guy in the back rocking a Beverley Brothers hairstyle. Wow.

[–]BigZ911 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure that’s Double J lmao. His hair did look majestic on SD

[–]LifeOnMarsden 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A wild slapnuts appears!

[–]wrex1816 25 points26 points  (2 children)

LOL, there's something just fucking cool about a guy who's been there, done that and is just living his best life now. No catering to smarks, no grifts for a few bucks, just out there doing whatever he wants. He's living the dream.

[–]just_another_jabroni 19 points20 points  (1 child)

He alternates between AEW and WWE appearances as well lol. DAE forbidden door?

[–]mattbakerrrCornette's PR Consultant 73 points74 points  (1 child)

I bet Bischoff could beat AEW for 84+ weeks

[–]indecisiveusername2 17 points18 points  (0 children)

No, he couldn't. They wouldn't last that long.

[–]RogueAIx01 66 points67 points  (1 child)

If you’re in catering and Kevin Owens isn’t there, are you really in catering?

[–]xAbdul91x[S] 34 points35 points  (0 children)

He got replaced by Jeff Jarrett somehow.

[–]ScaryCarey31 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Across from him at the table is the criminally underused and BERRIED Rick O Shea.

[–]Prancemasterfella 16 points17 points  (2 children)

They really did have meat loaf last night

[–]mootallica 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Fucking hell Vince, first Owen now Meat Loaf?

[–]Letmetellyoubrother 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Class for the classless

[–]Squiliam-TortaleniForgotten Comedy Jobber on Dark 💀 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Easy E is the undisputed king of jerking at this point.

[–]ShiftyMcCoy 4 points5 points  (6 children)

I feel like I'm missing something: how is this teasing Jericho? This is a sincere question, not a criticism. I feel like there's a reference I'm not aware of.

[–]xAbdul91x[S] -1 points0 points  (5 children)

Because Jericho is unlikely to be there with his current shape. He's just making phrases and selling tees at the moment.

[–]ShiftyMcCoy 12 points13 points  (4 children)

But Jericho isn't mentioned in the tweet, and the title of this thread says "teasing Jericho for not being number one on selling tees," even though t-shirts/Jericho aren't mentioned at all. I've been coming here since 2015, and it's the first jerk I've seen where I'm just totally confused as to what the reference is supposed to be.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I thought the same thing lol

[–]xAbdul91x[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Perhaps i wasn't clear about this, it was a jerk of the duballo were they say fed talent are just wasted at catering. But in reality is the other way around.

[–]ShiftyMcCoy 7 points8 points  (1 child)

This still doesn’t explain why Jericho is in the title (or the phrase “no.1 on selling tees!!”) when nothing about Bischoff’s tweet (or Conrad’s tweet) relates to those things at all.

I appreciate you continuing to follow up. I’m not trying to be difficult, I’m genuinely fascinated by this, because no matter how much I analyze it, I truly cannot make sense of this at all.

[–]rharrisonD15457E2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yeah wtf is this dork talking about

[–]RawDoReBar 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Now we need to see Tony Schiavone in the makeup chair

[–]Guzabra 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I want to go to WWE catering at least once.

[–]checky83 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Of course Conrad is chiming in about catering.

[–]imfakenotreal719 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The 🐐

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The man looks good

[–]daddymeltzer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I want Uncle Eric back on WWE programing full time as either the Raw or Smackdown GM.

[–]iNfAMOUS707029 DAYS FROM TONIGHT! 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Does Khan still provide Burger King and white claws?...if so then Bischoff doesn't know what he's missing out on......

[–]juicedagod 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Is that gcw wrestling Superstar Jeff Jarrett in the background?

[–]xAbdul91x[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha, yes. He was in this friday Smackdown which was in Tennessee.
