Fired WWE Employee Opens Up About Disappointing Vince McMahon
Eric Bischoff was hired to oversee the creative direction of Smackdown back in June, 2019, however he was removed from his post just four months after joining the promotion. At the time, WWE announced that Bischoff had left the company and that he would be replaced by Bruce Prichard.
On his 83 Weeks podcast, Bischoff spoke about his time with the company and how soon he knew that he was not the right choice to be Smackdown’s Executive Director.
“I knew it. Vince knew it. We both knew it. That’s why when it was time for them to let me go, I was more relieved than disappointed. I was disappointed because I didn’t live up to Vince’s expectations.”Eric Bischoff
Bischoff even went on to take full responsibility for the entire situation and stated that he struggled to adapt to working in the WWE system.
